Here are some of my principles as a woodchuck.
1. To put in the due dilligence and research necessary to evaluate the difference between Republicans and Democrats if there is ever doubt of it, which is easily accessible.
2. To be intellectually honest about the documented, objective facts regarding the difference between Republicans and Democrats, including the congressional record and lists of accomplishments of Democratic politicians.
3. To not be dismissive of these objective facts when presented them by other people.
4. To use the Internet political sphere to spread fair evaluations of the Democrats, rather than present a hyperbolic negative picture in an attempt to manipulate our elected officials.
5. To not waste the time of other hard-working activists in making said mendacious claims.
6. To not punish other people who are recieving a benefit from the Democrats by delivering an ultimatum that would affect their lives and livelihood adversely, in order to get more of what I want.
7. To take responsibility for my role in the Democratic Party by realizing that the primary candidates delivered are the result of a consensus, and that if I am dissatisfied with that consensus, that it is my responsibility to try to change it, rather than punish the rest of the people who reached the consensus.
8. To maintain my own credibility when I debate political matters, in order to respect the issues for which I advocate.


Because of these and other priniciples, I vote for Democrats.

3. Damn, and I just got home from CostCo--if only I'd known
I'd have bought more.

Great deal on soda though--care for a Co'Cola?

5. How did the cheese look? - I often go there just to ogle the cheese.

8. are you kidding? That's my idea of porn! I know it's bad for me
and it's not acceptable to salivate in public but at least I know when I'm there I'm not alone...

17. "8).....in order to respect the issues for which I advocate"
Which "issues" are those?

I don't believe I've ever read a post of your in which you advocated for a specific "issue",
only demands for allegiance to a person or Party.



Who will STAND UP and FIGHT for THIS American Majority?
"By their WORKS you will know them."

23. who the heck knows?
the only definition I know is that a woodchuck is a native Vermonter- and the OP is not one. Urban dictionary gives that as the 1st definition and then another which has zilch to do with dem politics.

28. LOL... thanks!
Although now I'm confused as to how this "list" relates to the Woodchuck. It seems to me the Woodchuck is saying kind of the opposite of the writer of this post.

Wow I picked a hell of a day to give up sniffing glue!

21. How are you a woodchuck?
are you:

a) a 7th generation Vermonter?

or

b) a woman who gives blow jobs using her teeth?

No?

then how are you a woodchuck?
