Top Secret: For Democratic Eyes Only

In Political on November 4, 2010 at 7:28 pm

It seems as if the tide has turned against the Democratic Party and it’s agenda. However, the semi-watershed moment of this past Nov. 2nd should be painted not as a rout, but as a tactical withdrawal. Democrats need to use this opportunity to show that they are the underdogs. That they are the rebels.

They need to show that a wild, uncontrolled and powerful fringe movement has undermined not what Americans want but what they need.

This requires three things:

  1. Strong leadership from the President.
  2. A streamlined and focused plan from the Congressional delegation.
  3. A determined grassroots movement.

What do you say, my fellow affiliated and/or unaffiliated friends?


Fascism ≠ Socialism, alright?

Fascism (noun): a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism. I.E.: EVERYTHING IS MINE.

Socialism (noun): a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole. I.E. EVERYTHING IS OURS.

These are not the same thing, alright?


Now, we can move on and start calling our President liberal-with-socialist-leanings instead of a fascist. At least that way we can be, you know, factual.

Theodore Roosevelt Week: October 20-26

I declare that the week leading up to Theodore Roosevelt’s birthday (Oct. 26th) shall be “Theodore Roosevelt Week”. Every day during said week I shall post a quote I think particularly excellent of the man, as well as fun facts, pictures and where to find fan paraphernalia (yes, seriously — I’m even wearing a “Teddy” shirt as we speak).

What could be better during an election cycle then to look back (and up) to one of the highest ranked presidents of all time?

As George Santayana once said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” So, hopefully, we can all learn a little something from Colonel Roosevelt during the week, aye?
