Yoohoo - it's time for a surprise pre-election mailbag! That's right, we just knew that you wouldn't be able to get through to election day without a reminder of what lies in store for the country if the Republicans achieve a full majority. Read 'em and weep, suckers! And don't forget - as always, these emails have not been edited in ANY WAY, except to preserve the anonymity of the sender.

In general, Democrats are less intelligent than Republicans i.e. Gore and the Clintons. That's why Democrats will not see the White House for many years to come. Especially, after once turning our respected White House into a Chicken Ranch and a Humidor repository. Long live Republicans and shall they inherit the earth. Go Dubya!
DU RESPONDS: Just one thing: before you go around accusing people of being stupid, you might want to find out what a humidor is.

You liberals have polarized the country. You have one thing in common with radical Islamics: You both want to destroy the USA!
I suggest you have your "leaders" Kennedy, Hillary, Gephardt, Daschle, et al break up the USA, dividing the country in half. You liberals can take the half East of the Mississippi, Conservatives can have the half west of the Mississippi. Then you guys can create you own cry baby socialist hell. Conservatives can go own as usual.
DU RESPONDS: Uh... okay! Give us a call when you want in on the free health care.

Browsing through your websight it struck me suddenly what it was I was feeling. I felt like a kid again in an old style carnival inside the freak tent - looking at all the misshaped and malformed poor souls - not wanting to look but being unable to turn away, feeling sorry for them but at the same time repulsed. You poor poor people. I feel for you, I really do!
DU RESPONDS: Surely it's WE who should feel sorry for YOU... I mean, it must have been tough for you, growing up in the freak tent at a carnival. I can only imagine what your poor parents must look like. No wonder you keep having flashbacks.

Here's one for your "hate" mailbag. Nice use of that term, "hate", by the way. Really drives home how you are such victims of the Evil Right Wing Conspiracy.
Now, I will be the first one to agree with you that the Republican Party is filled with corrupt, greedy and selfish individuals. But guess what, so is the Democratic Party. Neither of the two Big Parties actually supports the ideals and guidelines set forth in the <a href=http://www.house.gov/Constitution/Constitution.html>The Constitution of the United States</a>. A good read, by the way. Try looking through it some time. But I digress. No one political party really hold up to the true ideals of the Founding Fathers (oh, that's not a very PC phrase, is it? Wouldn't want to sound misogynistic, would I? How about the Founding Individuals?) The <a href=www.lp.org>Libertarian Party</a> comes close to promoting an actual American (as dictated by the Constitution) form of Governemt. (Hiss! boo! Evil, crazy Libertarians! God forbid anyone try and bring this country back to what it was originally supposed to be.)
Speaking of the Founding Individuals, I would like you to try a little exercise. Look through The Constitution, The Declaration of Independence and The Bill of Rights, and see how many times the word "Democracy" pops up. For those too lazy (gee, people who support welfare being lazy? Who would of thought?) to try this little game, I'll give you a hint: 0. Gee, for all the times politicians throw that glowing, vote-gaining word, you'd think America was supposed to be a Democracy, wouldn't you? And if that's the case, logic would stand to reason that the most important and defining documents of our government would be peppered with the word. Things that make you go hrrrrmmmmmmm. Without further ado, I now will stop wasting my time with you socialist dredges, and will return to reading a site with some actual political content.
I await your pithy, yet void-of-any-actual-insight-or-logical-discourse comment.
DU RESPONDS: I'll get back to you when I've finished scratching my scrotum.

"our political agenda right or wrong.... our ends always justifies our means".
The rule of law is just a suggestion.
If it doesn't go our way,we will get the courts to change the law!
The Democratic Party is it's own worst enemy.
It used to stand for viable social issues. Now it's POWER, MONEY, DIVISIVENESS!

Most democrats are bleeding heart liberals who don't give a dam about the America. They would be most happy if we were a socialist country where the people who have worked hard and made themselfs rich, pay for the lazy bums who vote democratic.
It will never happen.
The Hilldabeast will never be elected president, so why don't all you democrats take Jimmy Carter and move to Cuba, and make everybody happy.
Why do you think the democratic party is represented by a jackass? Cause it represents their mentallty.
DU RESPONDS: Why do you think the Republican party is represented by an elephant? Because it produces an inordinate amount of dung.

I know something a tad funny and after a few months to get t he unfettered proof I will unleash it on the blind who frequent DU. Truth is that when someone emails your Skinner, you ignore it but you find a way to bring them up when you want to smear someone or when they point out that you run your site without ethics. Well Skinner, not everyone you take for granted or insult is an amateur and I think that people may see you a tad differently when they find out what some of us have found out. SInce you insisted on your bigotry, we insisted on exposing your lies. When the proof is without any dount it will be emailed and unveiled for all to see :) You feel big running this site, but I think bringing you to your knees will be a great moment for truth.

Here's a snip of proof from the democraticunderground.com cult -- they are small small peanuts with lots of hate to spread so MASS emailing and RIGGING POLLS ON CNN, MSNBC, VOTE.COM, and others (even Oprah who also has been notified for her redcent message board scam by democrats) These low life filth mongers deserve no publicity because they have little support to sustain themselves..they are from the sewer. They are pure lazy anti-American trash.

You and your organization have been reported to the proper authorities. You did not like my posts, which were quite reasonable, and in return your posters, and your organization, made threats to my person.
The feds will be quite interested in what you have done. Your organization is filled with anti-American hate speech, which may be acceptable to the paranoid conspiracists such as you attract, but you will not get away with threats.
I have also been notified by someone I know at Yahoo that you have attempted to get my personal information for harassment purposes. Continue this, and you will have a lawsuit on your hands.
I continue to spread the word about idiots like you, the authoritarian left, and you will exposed for what you are. There are thousands and thousands of moles who are infiltrating you and organizations like you. Your socialism will be exposed. You are being watched by the government. The American people will not allow you totalitarians to get away with your garbage anymore. Any organization which takes the name "Democratic......" is suspect, because you try to hide your fascism with your name. You leftists are at fault for 911 because of the way you destroyed the military during the 90s and the way you influenced the Democratic party. No more. Never again.
I'll be there, watching. Recording. Thousands will be. Your attempts to undermine America will not work. You are being outed for the vile creatures you are.
We will take back the Universities. We will take back America. You leftists will cease to have control of the Democratic Party.

Recently I stumbled across your web site. As I read the threads I couldn't help but notice a common theme. Every single one of you absolutely hates the United States, the government, religion, the military, the American way of life or anything else deemed to be 'conservative'. By the same token, you all love Clinton, view abortion as a 'choice', put the well being of a tree over the need of a man to support his family, push alternative fuels while stopping dams from being built and generally ridicule anyone with a difference of opinion.
I always knew you existed but just didn't know the extent of your hatred. Thank you for showing me.

Dear ladies and gentlemen: I love to show your site to my Comp I students as an example of an unreliable Web site. Keep up the good work illustrating the basic premise that liberals such as yourselves have little respect for honesty or even for rationality. With any luck, even some of the most hardened Democrats may learn to question a "vanguard" of ideologues that lack tolerance for honest discourse while revealing the same level of logic as typical seventh graders. If you choose to display my letter in your Hatemail, please spew forth your most vile and childish comments to further show people what your party represents. Of course, I will be surprised if you have the intellectual and moral fortitude to do so. Be that as it may - I am looking forward to your best sophomoric display. In either case, I am displaying this post, and we will look forward to either silence (my prediction to my students) or yet another sassy Democratic Underground reply.
The ball is in your court and I'm predicting turnover.
DU RESPONDS: Sir, before I commence with the bitchslap that you seem to so richly desire, please indulge me for a moment while I point out that if you're so keen on teaching your students about "reliability", "honesty" and "rationality" you might want to avoid making broad generalizations about all Democrats and all liberals based on the obviously tongue-in-cheek and obviously biased rantings of two sophomoric webmasters with too much time on their hands. Thank you. And now for the bitchslap. You're an idiot.
