I think the Democratic Party needs a boost

Recommended Posts

I am registered as a Democrat, but I don't believe myself to be a full fledged supporter. Let's just say i hate them less than the Republicans :half:

Now, i've been thinking. I believe the strong point with Democrats is their multi-ethnical and multi-racial background and support. I mean, c'mon, the only Black republican who has a lot of respect (J.C. Watts).

So, i believe that in order for the Democrats to make a successful run for office in 2004, they need to mobilize not only their minority voting contingent, but also recruit more minorities into public office.

I welcome all comments/complaints/ suggestions etc....

Oh, and i also think that if Colin Powell continues to be dissuaded from the Republican party, the Democrats should try to get him to change affiliations ;)

FAT CHANCE!!! he is ours!!! they did a study that i saw on TV on Fox and on Msn...that now blacks are leaving the Demo. party...and actually the # of black Republ. are going up...but what was a big drastic change was in the Indep. Party...many blacks are not happy with either party and going Indep...but i was amazed that many blacks are leaving the Demo. party and that the # rose in the Repub. party....:eek:

much to the dismay of the bleeding heart liberals in the Democratic party, it was a Republican President who ended Slavery (Abe) and it was a Republican President who entertained the first Black Man as a dinner guest in the White House (Teddy). In fact, my man Teddy worked with the Black leadership of the day to appoint moderate Southerners to become Judges and leaders in the community. He even crossed party lines to ensure it was the fair, correct choice. The Republican Party history is far more inclusive then you might imagine. They are not all right wing Bible thumpers.

oh yes. Trent Lott and the Dixiecrats were fine examples of inclusiveness. :rolleyes:

Trent Lott is a fine example of the type of Machine Republican that Teddy would fight against...

Also, about the "Dixiecrats", you do realize that for years after and during the Civil War, the Democratic party ruled the south... Think about it, Abe L. was a Republican...

Im just going to mention that the parties switched contingents somewhere late 19th -early 20th century. For instance, Democrats used to be in the south, and Republicans used to be in the north. So i wouldn't necessarily credit republicans with this; actually, it was the old republicans who turned into the current-day democrats.

Let's run with this and continue it...

I have listened to and read many of JFK's speeches and his ideas, both with domestic finances and international policies sound very conservative. Some people today say that many conservative-democrats have shifted and become Liberal-Republicans. So, while parties shift and change to reflect the population’s feelings are you saying that the "old republicans" were really Democrats and that the Democrats set the slaves free? Can I say that today, the new democrats are really socialists and that today's republican party is leaning towards being democrats?

I think that the Democrats have lost touch with what is important to the majority of people who vote in this country. Special interest groups have those Jackasses by the nutz and they have no room to move or negotiate their platforms.
