A visitor to this site could not understand why I am against the DLC. She wrote
"Why, in heavens name would you be against DLC?? or does the DLC mean something different than Democratic Leadership Commission(?).
I would think that all democrats would be supporting Democratic Party, even if they do not agree with everything.
ada This was my response.......
Thank you for your comment. I will begin by telling you that I am a democrat. I have supported every democratic candidate since George McGovern when I was only 18. The Democratic party has two fine gentlemen and true democrats in Harry Reid and Howard Dean, but at the same time we have a cancer within the Democratic party that continues to support George Bush and the Conservative Republican agenda. The Progressive wing of the Democratic party wants an end to this war. DLC Democrats only want a change in the way the war is run. DLC Democrats didn't do anything to oppose the bankruptcy law that made the poor even poorer. DLC Democrats make a racist appeal to the southern white male. DLC Democrats like Joe Lieberman are constantly seen on right wing tv programs attacking fellow Democrats and supporting Bush policies. We are not strong enough to fight the Republicans because we have not conquered the cancer within the party that is the DLC.
I would like for you to open your eyes if you are a true democrat. Peace, Claude .....then Ada replied ....
Thank you for responding to my note. Actually, I agree with everything you wrote. Specially about Lieberman, I've always called him a "closet republican. However, if we want to defeat Bush and his Cabal, we must be united. I do not know how we can achieve that, but somehow even DLC must be made to understand how wrong they are. So, I suppose, after all is said and done, I believe you guys are doing the right thing. Thank you
Ada This just shows how many people are not aware of what the DLC stands for (it's the corporate infiltration of the Democratic party). The grassroots Democrat is locked in a power struggle with this cancer. The more people are exposed to the truth the more likely the DLC will become an ineffective relic. Down with the DLC!!!! ...more now than ever.
