13. Just to clarify myself
I know I'm fed up and I'm surely going to make some Dems mad. I've worked so hard to push this campaign forward and only because I care so deeply about what I perceive as the entirely lost direction our nation is headed. Feeling so powerless after the election, I decided to do this as a protest, and while I understood the monumental task at hand was virtually impossible, kept pushing it forward until today we are filed, and are beginning to raise money. I am not an experienced candidate. I'm sure I'll make some mistakes, as maybe my incendiary posts would be considered mistakes by the careful political plotters. Shoot, my whole team are still volunteers. But this war just has incensed me, and the fact that we allowed it to happen. Democrats allowed it to happen. Democrats continue to undermine people on many issues like bankruptcy, or CAFTA. It is not just important to elect any Democrat. It is important to elect the right Democrat. So, I am sorry if my pointed comments seem tough on Democrats, as I have always been a Democrat and hate to see the Party become like the Republican Party. If I didn't care about the Party, I would leave. But I believe a strong Progressive Democratic Party is what our nation needs now more than ever, and if we allow them to continue to force the party to the right, we are only succumbing to the very evil that is destroying our nation, the continual sell out of our freedoms and open democracy, fighting baseless wars, uncaring greed based policies that leave our nation so vulnerable.
