It seems every four years we have a Democrat that runs on a Liberal platform during the primary. And each and every time, they decide, once they’ve cleared that hurdle, that they don’t need their base any more.
What Obama and the Dems don’t get is we don’t want wishy-washy, let’s go to the center, bullshit. They lose us every time when they do this. And I can tell you right now…The enthusiasm Obama had is starting to wane .
The reason? Like all the other losing candidates in our recent past, he’s forgotten what got him one and a half million donations. He forgot that we WANT a Liberal/Progressive agenda first and foremost. We expect it. And until we GET IT…we aren’t a lock (for votes) by any stretch of the imagination.
You abandon us? Guess what? We abandon you. This FISA thing, these Faith-based Bush initiatives…NO NO NO. We didn’t vote for more of the same. We didn’t “get involved” for more of the same. We opted in on the notion that CHANGE IS GOOD…IS NEEDED…and nothing less will satisfy us.
What the Dems don’t seem to understand is…THIS WILL NEVER CHANGE. We aren’t gonna vote for a slogan. Wake up. We WANT Liberalism to be a GOOD word. We want someone fighting for us. We’re the people who didn’t show up in 2000. We’re the people who voted for Nader. We aren’t afraid to send a message with our vote. We expect to be represented.
