45. ...but I am angry
Edited on Sun Jun-12-05 06:15 PM by Lecky
Not at individual DU members but at the fact we can't seem to come together on what's important.

It's disgusting to me that we have let the GOP walk all over this nation. Do any of you for one second think that the republican voters are going to hold their party accountable? I have republican friends who just shrug off the war in Iraq even when they admit to me that it probably wasn't a good idea.

The only group that is going to fight the GOP fascists is US! All this "well...Dean should have said blah blah blah", you guys don't get it! Republicans bash the democrats over and over, they spread lies and we sit down and take it. Dean just said "republicans are pretty much white Christians"...which is the TRUTH. That's all the republican party cares about! Dean used to be a republican and IS A WHITE CHRISTIAN, the man knows who he's dealing with. I can understand his frustration and anger and I'm sick of the "polite police" pooping all over our party.

If we don't end the petty bickering we will lose focus...then we might as well just hand over the next elections to the republicans. If you are going to fight about this crap then who do YOU represent? I am a democrat b/c we are NOT a selfish party, we cater to everyone...yes, even the white Christians!

I know I'm pretty new here so sorry for the rant but I just wish everyone would wake up and see what's really happening before our eyes. The few democratic "leaders" in DC are not helping either, meanwhile republicans are using THAT against us. I wish this country wasn't so extremely polarized I really do, fact is that it IS and not in our favor!

Do you think we can really win this fight with love and tolerance, especially when the rethugs just use it against us to further their support? Has anything ever been won in this country w/o fighting for it?

EDIT: I'll shut up now, b/c I just realized we were talking about tasers and I feel like an idiot LOL.
