Ahhh, well, I haven't said anything political in my blog to this point, but...
I heard an interesting quote on a news program yesterday evening. I can't remember which news show it was, but they were discussing how over the last 10 years democrats have continued to lose Gubernatorial, Senate, and House seats. The only democrats that they've been able to put into the White House over the last 30 years were Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, both Southern Democrats, which most people would consider pretty moderate as far as democrats go. They would like to think of the US as being defined by the liberal centers of the country: New York & New England, Chicago, and California, but that is just not so. They said that democrats are out of touch with real America - the deer huntin', Nascar watchin', beer swiggin' America.
Finally my favorite quote of the segment was something like this: “It all boils down to God, Guns, and Gays”. How true.
Until democrats realize that and quit trying to cram ultra-liberals like Al Gore, John Kerry, and Hillary Clinton down America's throats, they will not win.
Don't get me wrong. I'm just restating a point that I thought was profound. I'm not bashing democrats, heck I don't consider myself a republican, but more of a “moderate” or “independent”. I'm just a normal American guy. A normal American guy who loves “God, Guns, and Gays”. Umm, well, at least 2 of the 3. Anyone who I believe will try to take those away from me will not get my vote - same with the other 6 million deer huntin', Nascar watchin', beer swiggin' American voters just like me.
