He will not last long!
Thinktanker (11 posts) Nov-06-02, 04:47 PM (ET) Why we lost IMHO Well for starters, we have become a party of special interests. If you try and be too many things to too many people, you'll end up being nothing to anyone. That's us. Our main focus should have been protecting freedom and the constitution. Where was the democratic leadership when Ashcroft started throwing US citizens in jail without trials? If there every was a time to have called a spade a spade, this was it, but we did nothing. But then what could we have done. Take the issue of gun rights for example. We pander to the special interest anti-gun crowd. What are we going to do when they start rounding up "unpatriotic" people like us because we are a risk to "national security". What are we going to do when they turn a blind eye after the next terrorist attack when good-ole-boys start roaming around at night looking for "Clinton Lovers" to lynch? Worst of all, what are we going to do when the 1st terrorist nuke takes out DC and some general "assumes control" and decides put all us "liberal terrorist lovers" in "re-education" camps? I don't want to sound militant here but you damn well better start thinking about getting a gun unless you plan on going to the camps peacefully. Here we are focused on Gay rights, Welfare for the poor, and gun control, while our country is turning into a police state! So what do we do now? Can we claim to be the party that will protect and preserve the constitution? I don't think so. We have been so busy trying to rewrite it that we have zero credibility on this issue. We think people should help the poor so we amended the constitution to allow us to confiscate and redistribute peoples wealth and throw them in prison and kill them if they resist. But vote for us, we will protect you. We hate the 2nd ammendment and want to disarm you so that when the Govt. implements a police state you will be defensless and unable to resist as they march you into the gas chambers. But vote for us, we will protect you. We think that if you are raped and murdered that the criminal who did it should get get off with a less severe sentence because it was not a "hate crime". But vote for us, we believe in equal justice for all. I could go on for the next three hours here with example after example of our parties hypocracy. Gay bashing, Gun crime, Discrimination, etc. I hate to tell you but there's already LAWS against all these things! We need to stop focusing on adding more icing on the cake we have baked over the last 30 years and realize that the cake itself is on FIRE! We don't just need new party leaders, we need a new platform. We need to expose the Republikans as the party of the police state. We need to move radically away from the socialists who have hijacked our party leadership and adopt a platform closer to that of the Libertarians.

I would not be suprised if this guy was an AR-15.com member.

This person is obviously one of us. Notice his username: ThinkTanker. It is a take-off on the name of one of the "cherished" liberal shitbirds on that site, ThinkTank. He's gone. I've noticed that none of my screennames are still active. I have different IP addresses for all of them, so I think I must have been outed. One of my highest post count names has the "disruptor, blah blah" message. They are really cracking down over there, imploding actually. As Martha Stewart says, "It's a good thing," because the moderate soccer-mom types are the ones being screwed the most by their rabid paranoia. Several people on the forum who don't know I'm a plant have emailed me complaining about being banned, others have asked me about why I have not posted recently. They do apparently notice when "one of their own" disappears. This ban-crazy atmosphere combined with the huge loss suffered and wingnut conspiracy theorists are really getting people to take notice of moderate and greenie posters who have disappeared. The DU may go the way of the dodo if they continue to ban their most outspoken members.

Just tried to get to their site :) [b]Due to the unexpectedly high traffic to our website since election day, we are currently limiting access to our message board. Only individuals who have donated to Democratic Underground during the last year are being given access. This is a temporary change which will only be in effect until our traffic returns to it's pre-election levels. [/b]

The scary part is that this stuff they are doing is verbatim out of the old communist party playbook. Counter revolutionaries can not be tolerated. Anti-party "propaganda" can not be tolerated. Free speech is likewise intolerable and must be suppressed. Only that speech and print which supports the party and the party leaders and current Party dogma (The More Equal Pigs...) is allowed. Sick...sick...sick. See why I absolutely loathe American Liberals? [puke]

Originally posted by NY2nd of the DU: that sucking GOP d!ck until 2 days before the election, then standing up and saying it tastes terrible is a LOSING strategy. Nancy will kick where Frost will suck. I'd rather stand for something and go down kicking. Strike that, I WILL stand for something and go down kicking, if need be.

I hope they get what they want and elect liberal leadership. The farther left they go the less likely they are to win anything in 2004. The average American (while a sheeple) is just right of center. The farther left they go, the less they will win.
Link Posted: 11/7/2002 8:23:51 AM EDT
So, MrP, if our current leadership happens to be too far right of center, will that then not be a factor? I try not to sensationalize my posts, but I do sometimes wonder about the police state issue. You see, I drive less than three miles to get to work and I often see upwards of 5-6 cops during my short drive and the route has nothing special about it (e.g. no police stations along it or anything like that). Yeah, police statism is a problem, and so is statism in general and *that's* what we need to focus on--dispelling the all-out belief (in the face of all evidence) that the state is infallible and not to be questioned. If we don't start demanding accountability and moderation, then it won't matter which party is in control, it will be doom on us.

NO NO NO, ThinkTanker, the DemocRats are doing just fine!!! HE HE HE HE Jimno
Link Posted: 11/7/2002 9:02:14 AM EDT
I really think DU is funny as hell. I mean, just LOOK at the difference between that site and this one for example. Here, we can talk about just about anything, and anyone is free to register and post, even if it's an anti-gunner liberal with an anti-gun liberal agenda. We'll read their postings and will actually respond to it in what's usually a pretty civilized fashion. We don't discriminate and it's not a prerequisite for our members to be pro-gun or even Republicans. All are welcome to share their views, in appropriate forums. Then look at Democratic Underground: Site rules say that if you're not a liberal Democrat, you won't even be allowed to register! No conservatives allowed! So, what they have is a mutual wankfest in a protected environment where they can be well shielded from other viewpoints and yes, even facts that they might not be aware of. I know what sort of people engage in that sort of exclusionary behavior: Young children who haven't yet learned social skills! I've noticed that the anti-gun crowd in general operates on much the same principle. You can go to any of the pro-gun rights websites and interact with other people and email the staff, but look at the ANTI'S sites, and you can't even send an email to the staff! Go to the Brady Campaign's website and try to find a link to email any BC staff! You'll never find one! If the Democrats and/or anti's won't even LISTEN to a contrasting viewpoint, then they will soon become completely irrelevant. Wars are fought with INFORMATION, and apparently they don't understand that. Which is just fine with me, of course! I am reminded of the facts regarding the demographics of the major parties: As education level increases, people are more likely to be registered as Republicans. As income increases, people are more likely to be registered as Republicans. The Democrats should stop and think about that for a while. They should ask themselves WHY smart, successful people are likely to be Republicans. Maybe they'll figure something out . CJ
