Will November Mark The Overthrow Of The Democrats
Mr. Dionne of the Washington Post (Is conservatism finished?) tells us that political movements lose power upon loss of confidence and equates such to the 1968 Democrat party which wandered until they were able to fight their way back. Two "victories" ensued yet neither is discussed. President Carter won in the late 1970’s and his feats speak for themselves. In the early 1990’s President Clinton won successive terms yet there was a third party which drained votes from the conservative side. After President Clinton’s awe-inspiring success, why wasn’t VP Gore able to carry the party forward with the confidence which Mr. Dionne describes?
Mr. Lamont recently denounced Sen. Lieberman for accepting a $1,000 from Wal-Mart. War-Mart is the business which has been attacked for zoning in CA., non-union codes in other states, and not long ago for a tax surcharge in Chicago. The company employs elderly and non-skilled workers. Mr. Lamont is a Wal-Mart owner, he owns stock between $31,000-$35,000.
The New York Times has "reported" two front page "stories" revealing NSA secrets and terrorist money laundering. Mr. Blumenthal just wrote an article leaking weapons information to the Hezbos, Iran, and Syria.
The Democrats have always been the party of the lower and middle classes yet last week they voted down an increase in minimum wage. The explanation was the bill had been written to provide billions for the rich.
Wal-Mart provides a store for lower and middle class to both work and shop yet the NYT is endorsing Mr. Lamont. Why?
The media is front paging military secrets to terrorists, in the event of a November victory, how are the Democrats going to provide National Security?
The Democrats rejected a minimum wage increase in light of death tax reductions (which are applicable to 90% of Americans). Does this party believe lower and middle classes will never prosper?
Mr. Dionne bases his prediction on confidence and track record. What have the Democrats done for you lately?
