You can see from the map above -courtesy of USA Today- that there are no red states and blue states anymore...there are progressive pockets in an
I believe the American people were saying 'stop speaking for us...you have no idea what 'real' life is about'. Do most Americans want a Jerry Falwell-run radical right? -No, I think most Americans are Centrists or just to the right of that...BUT I think they would rather the right than the too-progressive left...judging by the map.
But the Democratic operatives just don't get it. They were all over TV this morning saying how they have to reassess strategy...and find a candidate they can run that appeals to people who want 'moral values'...someone who can win some red states. Here's a tip: No one with 'true faith' or 'moral values' would vote against banning partial birth abortion. It's not a strategy -its fact. Barrack Obama -their new 'rising star' voted against banning LIVE-birth abortion...this is leaving a baby (that was meant to die in a late-term abortion, but ooops was born alive) in a KFC bucket in a utility closet until it dies. The life isn't 'viable'...then again, I don't think that my boys would have faired to well in those circumstances either. Mr. Obama...good luck with your Presidential ambitions, as you claim to be a Christian, while you voted against banning this act of barbarism. It was your man, Kerry, who kept saying that a man with words and no deeds is dead...but he failed to follow his own mantra. He told us that he believed that life began at conception -yet he wouldn't legislate that way. So, I believe it's a life but that someone should still have the legal authority to end it?...but wait...Dr. Kavorcian is in jail, isn't he?
This isn't indicative of a country over-run with snake charmers and people who speak in tongues. This means we don’t want to be
Many Democrats in this country are social conservatives --and are only Democrats because of Union affiliations or race-not progressive ideals. The more progressive the party becomes -the more of these one-issue-oriented voters you will lose. Maybe this will be the beginning of a Centrist Party...
Just some random thoughts after listening to the seeming shock and utter confusion of the Washington elite today... (and reading the self-induced hysteria on the left side of the blogosphere...)
