"The dem's have allowed the left wing socialists take over the party, till they get rid of these idiots there will be a fractured party and a split America. You think Iraq has a civil war going, what happens if in America?"

Well I consider myself pretty liberal, progressive, left wing, whatever the current PC term is. I probably would think about being a socialist, but that damn profit motive keeps getting in the way. ;-)

If you look at the present crop of Democrats, they are as a group, more conservative than moderate Republicans in the 70's. Hillary Clinton is in many of her positions, to the right of Richard Nixon.

My opinion is that the Democrats have been taken over by the moderate Republicans.

You never will agree with everything a party does or says, even I am not happy with some of the last 6 years of decisions...still if you think it is bad now the alternative would be miserable.

The dem's have allowed the left wing socialists take over the party, till they get rid of these idiots there will be a fractured party and a split America. You think Iraq has a civil war going, what happens if in America?

All these leftists can do is call names, present false accusations and do nothing. There has never been a worse time in politics and mostly due to these Lib's...they are power hungry and only are looking to enrich themselves, they care little about America...they talk treason and act like cowards.

Hmmm well to put a sharper point on my previous post.

I have considered myself a Republican most of my life. However in the last 10 years or so I have become aware of a segment of the party that I find grossly repulsive.

They is a very small minority within the party that hold most of the power and influence in our state. Most are wealthy and are not for want of anything. I would not have a problem with this except for the display of callous disregard for the people of our state.

Publicly they will say whatever it takes to look like saints. Privately they have shown me what insensitive, self-centered, ethnocentric, and greedy bastards they really are. Absolutely no concern for the general welfare of society nor it's economic stability until it whacks them in the wallet (then it's generally too late, the lazy putzs). These are the guys who were hungover in economics class back in college.

The general platform of the Democratic party holds little attraction for me. I however treat my Democratic friends with respect as my peers. I don't secretly deride them behind their backs like the above mentioned members of the Dark Fraternity! (by the way most of the behavior I have seen would make you think these guys were members of the KKK)

I guess it's just taken me longer to see the light.

tough pill, tough pill!

Include me in that anti-war side. There are many of us that are disappointed that we voted to change course, and have been sold out by Reid and Pelosi.

But where are we going to go? Certainly not to the Republican side.

I would think that the disaffected conservatives would be more likely to sit out than the disaffected liberals. The liberals can hope that the democrats grow a backbone after they capture the Presidency. Also, the Republicans have to defend 22 seats to the Democrats 11, and with the retirement of Hagel and Warner, it is looking better for a filibuster proof majority in the Senate.

So we have hope. Conservatives, not so much.

Negative views include the Democratic Party as well - since they have the majority in Congress. The California state legislators are also facing the same negative polling - they control both houses.

You will also find a high level of frustration from the anti-war side of the Democratic Party. It appears to them that those whom they voted for are caving in to Bush or compromising their anti-war principles. (Ay, I live in California - San Francisco Bay Area to be exact - and I see it, read it, and discuss it.)

"Republicans are hoping hillary gets the nomination because that means a certain win with a Republican Pres."

I don't know, Destin. The Republican hopefuls are pretty underwhelming. And the negatives for Bush, the Republicans in Congress, and the Republican party in general are pretty high.

People in Presidential elections usually vote against, not for. The present high negatives do not look good for the Republicans. But a lot can happen in 14 months.

I would be careful with that one. She might actually win.

If the race is close in California, I will end up voting for the Democratic nominee. However, it is more likely that I will vote for a third party as a protest vote since California is pretty safe Democrat.

Cheers

What we used to do years ago was one of us would register Democratic, the other Republican so we would get the propaganda from both sides.

elec, I have no idea the politics in your messed up state but we as Republicans are hoping hillary gets the nomination because that means a certain win with a Republican Pres. The lib's in congress are tthe real fuckups, not sure if they can even hold the slim majority they have especially if hillary is the nominee.
