About Me


Journal Archives

Thank you for the welcome.

I am happy to be here.

A while back I started hosting a "round table forum" if you will at my house, for basicially just my friends. Most of which were either lost to the process, didnt care, or just flat always voted republican because of their parents, or their belief in the fear machine. It just kind of grew from there, with some new people showing up, as long as one of my close friends would vouch for them. I don't like shady people, have to vet them a bit.

It is basicially a discussion for the issues of the day, which almost always leads to politics.

In almost every case, I was the only guy in the room with actual FACTS. 6 out of 8 of my closest friends voted for McCain and Romney. 5 of those 6 will never vote for a New Democrat or a Republican again. Unless of course, as everyone knows here, a democrat is always better than a repug. If a New Democrat is the only one left, I still strongly feel we should still vote for them in every case.

Basicially, it is my belief, that if you get most average americans to really sit down and ask themselves "How do I want my life and my childrens life to be governed?". The answer is almost always exactly what a PROGRESSIVE Democrat stands for. Pointing out that the people they are voting for are against that kind of government, with facts, which with the advent of the internet, are so readliy available for anyone to see, becomes quite easy. IMO.

And for some people quite frankly, I just play to their hot button issues, or use something I know about their personal lives to find something a local Republican is doing to thwart their beliefs. Its astounding how many people throw their votes away to the other side, all the while complaining about things are.

I just met a person a couple of months ago, who I knows dabbles in "little green trees". I asked him who he voted for for Governer of this fine red state I live in. He said Mike Pence, because he's a republican. So I told him one of Mike Pence's main agendas is to open more prisons in this state and criminalize marijuana even more than it is. Which is true, backed up by fact. He flipped to Democrat in one fail swoop. Thats all it took. And you know what? I will take it everytime. We need to educate evreyone who will listen. Progressive Democrats are the only ones who make sense anymore.

I don't see how just her mere presence

will expose their pointlessness. HALF the country still thinks the republicans want you to have it all, and the Muslim man is coming for your guns, and that Christian Fundamentalism belongs in your choice for public office. Hillary getting elected can't fix crazy. I don't get it.

I don't want Hillary to move back to the left when "politics dictates". If you ask me politics dictated 30 years ago that someone be left of center. Progressive. Common sense. Why would you want a chameleon as the commander in chief? Turning colors when the circumstances dictate. Right is right. Wrong is wrong.

As to your question, No. I don't see anyone taking the nomination from her. But the sole reason I think that is because the DNC has already made their choice.
