What Don’t They Get About “Voter Revolt”?

Most lifelong Democrats who are defecting en masse from “Our Party” have no illusions about the obvious drawbacks of a John McCain Presidency when it comes to our core beliefs. This is nothing less than a voter revolt. From The Oxford Pocket Dictionary of Current English 2008:

re·volt / riˈvōlt/

• n. an attempt to put an end to the authority of a person or body by rebelling: a countrywide revolt against the central government | the peasants rose in revolt. a refusal to continue to obey or conform: a revolt over tax increases.

Should we stand idly by as our most basic rights of representation are stripped from us by our own Party in nothing less than a calculated coup? And now rumor has it that Clinton’s name will not be placed on the first nominating ballot. Wake up! This isn’t about winning or losing. This is about creeping fascism.

If the leftover and shiny brand-new Party members are so concerned about what would be further lost with four more years of Republican rule, let them fight that agenda themselves. After all, they said they could do it without us.

Obama has gotten new and crossover voters that will take up the slack.

We will win without you.

I wouldn’t be on Hillary’s side, if I were you, when it all comes down.

Since you all have decided that you are no longer Democrats, go to the Republican National Convention and stay away from our convention.

Leave us Democrats alone.

It is time for someone to kick his dumb A out of the party.

The problem is that we have too many of these losers running around parading as democrats.

They belong in the other guy’s party.

They should have considered their base and The Issues, which frankly Obama has no concern for nor record of supporting, before shoving him down our throats. They will not succeed, because in the long run Country and Constitution trump Party, brand, and bully tactics.

Obama supporters who would naysay this as petulance or shooting ourselves in the foot just don’t get it. In case you haven’t tried to swim out of the DNC, Obamalite, MSM net, our issues of contention are much, much broader than the sexism and misogyny that were promulgated freely and without check during the Democratic primaries. Our bigger beef has to do with the willful manipulation and coercion of rules, primaries, penalties, voters, caucuses, committees, delegates, and superdelegates by the Party Elite to select the untested, teflon-like candidate of their choice.

It is incomprehensible that the one candidate in the history of our country who has earned more votes than anyone else ever in a primary contest would not be placed on the initial ballot at her Party’s Convention.

Keep in mind the words of our founding fathers, but make no mistake, lest the thought police be tempted to come haul me off: I am not advocating overthrow of the government. I am providing justification from within our founding principles, to protest and withdraw from Our Political Party, based on same principles that hold representation sacrosanct. Although our 2008 situation is markedly less extreme than the colonies faced under British rule, can you see any similarities? From The Declaration of Independence, In Congress, July 4, 1776: (emphasis mine)

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.


He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

  1. From what I see the leaders of the democratic party would throw us all under the bus to elect a black Obama, and thats sad, cause its not the color that counts its where he stands on issues and with no experience! This democrat will be voting John McCain as a no vote would be a vote for Obama!

  2. Thanks for your website, I’ve been feeling so alone, as everyone I know is voting Democrat, even though they liked Hillary, they are getting in line behind Sen. Obama, who could be great in ten years if he’d actually do something, but now I feel would be a complete disaster as a President. This guy is a piece of work.

    I’ve officially left the Dem party, and for the first time in my life will be voting Republican and for McCain. The press weirdly seems like Obama’s got it all sewn up. I feel they don’t know what they are talking about. They were saying Hillary had no chance during the entire primary campaign. I’m really wondering what will happen in the GE, as the press has no credibility.

    Your Greta Sustern/Nancy Pelosi piece was inspired. Thank you so much.

  3. dogmom — Thanks for appreciation of the Greta/Nancy piece. I was really struck that our Nancy, pride and joy, has turned into someone else, or perhaps she wasn’t who we thought she was.

  4. Very insightful posts and an astute analysis of why democrats are leaving their party, unless, of course it changes its tune to one which is considerably more democratic and less misogynistic than has been blatantly shown.

    Why are the obamabots so insulting and sexist? They take their cue from their Messiah. Back in ’96, Barack got his start by stealing the election from his mentor and benefactor, African-American Sen. Alice Palmer (she supported Hillary–wonder why!) behind her back. Now,he steals the nomination from Sen. Clinton. He goes on stage and hideously insults via a JayZrapper-wannabe mime act (“Obama Gives Hillary the F!nger”–YuTube mega-hit) by “flip-offing” her. (As your resident teenage pundit to interpret) and then dusting her off and scraping her off his shoes! Like Dirt! What a unmitigated punkish attitude! And this man wants to be president of what?

    Maybe he’ll wake up when the 18 million cracks on the DNC ceiling will explode and enough Light is shining in to cure them of their severe OBAMYOPIA! Why Barack may even go in for some Gender Sensitivity Courses, paid by the DNC!…
