Some day I'm going to turn in a Democratic supporter to the authorities,
and you're all going to thank me for it...I hope.

Note I said, a Democratic supporter, not a Democrat.

I think now is the time for you all to take into account that the signs are good that the Democrats are going to win. I'm convinced. I'm convinced because the opportunists in my neighborhood are changing their allegiance. Where eight years ago they criticized and ridiculed me because I posted the url to moveon.org in the HOA newsletter, (something which is not even illegal), they're breaking their own HOA rules by putting up political signs for local Dems. The homeowners are independents, and I can tell you, you don't want them representing your party. They're the kind of people who would abuse their positions for personal profit. They may know how to socialize, may even be adept at tweaking your heartstrings because of some recent personal misfortune, but if you were to know them, like I know them, you'd realize there's nothing but arrogance and greed in their hearts. They have no special calling to help the poor, and in fact, have said some pretty unkind things about people who are socially not as well off as they are. So I ask you, how can any Democrat be fooled by them?

Anyways, that brings up a good subject. We've been through six years of corruption under Republican rule. How far are you willing to go to keep your party clean from the influence of these abusive opportunists? Would you out them? Would you whistleblow? Or are the Dems going to be lulled by the same cronyism that took the House of Rove down?

3. I voted Democratic straight ticket and now that I did, I need to protect
my investment. I want the party to maintain a high level of integrity. Do you?

2. Awesome possition to take!
:applause:

Opportunists cannot be trusted. I wish there was a way to keep them at arms length. Unfortunately, some of them have become the DLC.
