I will use whatever position I have in order to root out hypocrisy. Democrats have strong moral values. Frankly, my moral values are offended by some of the things I hear on programs like "Rush Limbaugh," and we don't have to put up with that.
The way we're going to win elections in this country is not to become Republican lite. The way we're going to win elections in this country is to stand up for what we believe in.
I am glad that I could come to Conecticut and in a few short years inspire all of you to become active in a state that was seemingly sleep-walking through their political lives.
OK... So it had nothing to do with me! :) BUT, still, I am glad to see more people becoming pro-active in politics, as opposed to remaining in the more reactionary Blogosphere.
It was less than a year ago that my interest in the political process evolved me from a happy-go-lucky "spectator" to a committed "participant".
During the tumultuous 2006 campaign, I became aware that Democracy is best served when people get involved. So I started attending DTC meetings and got to know many of the members. Last night I was voted onto my town's DTC unanimously (which, when there are vacant uncontested seats, is pretty much a given...but then again, with me you never know).
This recent reawakening of the slumbering giant called "We The People" might help bring the dreams of the JFK and MLK types back to the frontal lobes of political reality.
The Frontal lobes have been found to play a part in impulse control, judgment, language, memory, motor function, problem solving, sexual behavior, socialization and spontaneity. The Frontal lobes assist in planning, coordinating, controlling and executing behavior. People that have damaged frontal lobes may experience problems with these aspects of cognitive function, being at times impulsive; impaired in their ability to plan and execute complex sequences of actions; perhaps persisting with one course of action or pattern of behavior when a change would be appropriate.
Yes... It is most certainly an appropriate time for a change in America. The reckless beahviour resulting in the failing Bush administartions' "New Way Forward" to "Stay the course!" is symptomatic of this persisting fact.
America desperately needs new leaders, young and old, to help change the course it has been following in its somnumbulic trance of political apathy. Bush's legacy may very well end up being that he poked the bear and woke it from its deep sleep. Or is that just Scooter Libby's novel fantasy?
At age ten the madam put the child in a cage with a bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons. They fed her through the bars and aroused the bear with a stick when it seemed to lose interest. ("The Apprentice" written by: I. "can fuck the deer" Lewis Libby)
America is definately ready to change the course after six years of repeated GOP hypocrisies.
Hypocrisy is a value that I think has been embraced by the Republican Party. We get lectured by people all day long about moral values by people who have their own moral shortcomings.
We need to go everywhere. There is not one county in this state, I don't care how far west you go, that doesn't have Democrats. We have to be proud of who we are.
Yes, leaders like Dean and Lamont inspired many to become pro-active BUT the incompetent Bush administration is partly responsible for this reawakening as well: They poked the fuckin' bear. And the reality is that it is a VERY LIBERAL bear that has awoken across this LIBERAL state AND across this LIBERAL country. Good for you Bob! Good for Connecticut and the nation too!
