As I put on my delegate running shoes for this weekend’s state convention, I will hope and pray that it goes ten times smoother than our state caucus did.
I have been in contact with the TX State Democratic Party and confirmed that indeed I am on the list as a delegate. The fiasco that we endured on March 4th left me wondering.
I have also signed on to volunteer for Rick Noriega’s Senatorial Campaign and will be out spreading the word about Lt. Col. Noriega’s accomplishments as a United States Serviceman, TX House Representative, and where he stands on the issues that Texans are concerned with. Make sure you stop on by his website and get to know him. It’s time to get rid of John Cornyn.
With my Rick Noriega for Senate sticker on, my comfortable shoes, and proud Democract smile, I’ll be there amongst all the other Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama supporters. I’ll let you guess who I’m voting for.
Now there are some that are trying to stir up controversy, maybe because their hungry or having relapses of previous addictions, or whatever, but to make it sound like this is the first time that a voter has crossed party lines to screw things up for their true party, just isn’t so. I know of a certain individual that crossed his party line to vote for the opposition not too long ago. In fact, in January, Daily Kos (liberal blog) urged readers in Michigan to vote for Mitt Romney in the GOP primary for similar reasons. So this is nothing new. GET OVER YOURSELF.
Just be frank, you cross party lines because you’re either pissed off at who your party has elected as your presidential candidate or you didn’t have a decent array of presidential candidates to choose from. Yes, there is the fact that you don’t want the opposing party in office, but it’s the satisfaction of trying to corrupt the opposing party’s votes that motivate you. This gives you permission to lie and deceive.
Ahhhhh… true democracy 😉
“Democracy is being allowed to vote for the candidate you dislike least.”–Robert Byrne.
Yes, you may be making an impact, but I am too. The difference? I’m doing it truthfully and honorably. I am from the Left and an example of a Liberal and a Democrat. Oh wait, you said:
“Everybody is going on and on and on about Mrs. Clinton, surprised that she is a liar. I said yesterday, “Why should this surprise anybody? The Clintons lie.” It isn’t that we know she lies, but don’t all liberals lie? Not necessarily in their personal lives, but liberalism is an ideology built on lies. It doesn’t work, it cannot work, and yet liberalism requires the making of false promises and the breaking of promises, so all liberal politicians lie because liberalism is a lie.”
Hmmm…liberalism ideology is an ideology built on lies. I think you have your facts backwards. Put down the crack pipe, hero sandwich and prescription medications and look up the history and meaning of liberalism. But hey, what does Stanford know? Obviously those in talk-radio know all. Do you use Conservapedia as a resource on a regular basis? Very scholarly!
But whatever huh? I’m just a part of what you refer to as the “Drive-Bys” or “Liberals.”
Anyway, I refuse to let my blood boil because I believe I am above that. I’m just proud to be a part of this election and have the opportunity to be a delegate. I’m also proud to be a supporter of a true American, who serves his country and never disrespects his soldiers.
But I’ll be sure to keep my eye out for those “operatives” that are “under the radar.” Covert operation. Ha!
As I lay down tonight, I will remind myself that I am a liberal. To put it simple terms for you, “anything that is not conservative.”
So put that in your crack pipe and smoke it.
One last personal note:
What would I know anyway? I’m only educated and happily married (yes, only once and not 3 times) to a military service member. I didn’t flunk out of college and my husband went through boot camp with a broken hand. I guess having some kind of pimple on your rumpus constitutes not serving your country.
Bravo to Thomas F. Schaller for his piece called “Microphone Marines” in the October 10, 2007 edition of the Baltimore Sun.
