So a young friend asked me, “What is a Democrat”? Hard question to answer. I could only tell him where I come from.
In business, there is a principal called “The Laws of Adhesion”. Simply, in a contract, the stronger party cannot dictate terms unfavorable to the weaker party. The contract is unenforceable if challenged in court. I believe the principal should apply to most facets of our lives.
MY Democratic Party WAS the champion of a level playing field. What it has become is something I don’t recognize.
To me, the Republicans are the “I’ve got mine, screw you” Party. Since the majority of my relatives are Republicans, we have outrageous arguments and nullify each other at the polls. I see little difference between the tactics of Tom Delay and Nancy Pelosi.
This election I find myself working to elect two Republicans for Congress and two others for county offices. The incumbents I cannot support.
In past blogs, I’ve talked about getting involved at the local level. That, and being a campaign volunteer are ways I can, in a very small way, push my views. For a past blog go to:
So irritating, getting people off their ass just to vote, let alone get involved.
Perhaps I cannot fit under a "Big Tent".
