If we lose in 2004, will the Democratic party become extinct?
Advertisements [?]
I believe that it's a real possibility that we could become a one-party totalitarian nation. I haven't missed a vote since 1972 when I first became eligible to vote. Watched McGovern lose in a landslide. I believe that the only candidate with a ghost of chance in 2004 is Gen. Clark. I think the Reptilicans will sucessfully paint Dean as an Eastern liberal and it will stick like glue. I just don't think I can drag myself to the polls again after another loss, especially if the Democratic leadership forms the circular firing squad again. If a dedicated voter like me is actually thinking of bailing out of the system, somebody else out there must be thinking the same thing. I think it will be our last chance until the Reptilicans self-destruct, taking down the country with them. In that case, it will take a future Roosevelt and a 21st Century version of the New Deal to dig us out from the mess. Why can we ever learn from history?
