I had a horrible experience canvassing today. We went out canvassing



Democrats today to ask them to support Kerry and our local candidates. We were in apartment complexes and lower middle class housing. The young Democrats living there told us they were voting for Bush! We even met a young marine who said he was just back from Iraq and supports the war, which is why he is voting for Bush. These people have nothing and they are the ones Bush is hurting the most, and yet they support him.And they are registered Dems and young. Why is this happening. I thought our base was solid. This is very frightening. We walked for five hours and only met two people who supported Kerry on our Democratic list! What does this mean?

73. Brilliant way to get them to see the light


There is a way to help them see the light. It is called the Republican Platform. Get a Copy ask them if that is what they support.

Affirm that we are a GW Bush Christian Nation.
Extend the Death Penalty to Rape.
Ban ALL Abortions
Privatize Social Security Phase out all Government payments.
Repeal the Minimum Wage
Prohibit regulation of Private Schools and use vouchers to fund them use this device to bankrupt public education.
Criminalize Homosexuality and include it in the Death Penalty group.
Oppose the Endangered Species Act.

If they agree with this platform runaway from them. If not ask them why they want to follow GW Custer?

Vince



This dude acts like this is a bad thing...!

Why is this happening? give you a hint:



BTW, why do liberals find it unfathomable that the not-rich and not-white sometimes vote Republican, but find nothing odd in the super-wealthy supporting leftist, liberal causes like Soros, Teresa, and Soros do?

What would be fun would be to start posting now and acting like a regular DU'ers.

Then, on the eve of the elction, we all post stuff about how we had been planning on voting for Kerry all along, but when we got to the ballot box we had to pull the lever for Bush.

Oh, how they would melt down.

I saw something a while ago that said 15% of democrats are planning to vote Bush, while only 3% of republicans are planning to vote for Kerry.

After being banned the first time I registered after less than 50 posts, I have been able to last over 400 posts with my second one. On Nov 3rd, I know I am going to get banned but it will be well worth it.

No intelligent, thinking, intellectually honest person could support Kerry.

Most Americans do not view themselves and poor or lower middle class, although many are just that. Most Americans, of all classes, see themselves as pre-rich. Many people, even though studies say there is LESS class mobility now than in the past, think if only they work hard enough they too can be CEO. I'll bet this train of thought is very prevalent among young people who are just starting out.



It's called 'The American Dream' and while the Dems may not believe in it, I would hope most 'normal' folks do...

ignorant and retarded are good descriptions of Congressman Moran (D) from Virginia, but "apolitical politician" is an oxymoron.

Everytime somebody tells me to check out that forum I'm confronted by 2 things;

1.) A large group of idiots.

2.) The worst, most confusing, bullshit forum software ever launched into cyberspace.
