Are you one out of four Republicans?

If so, think about it.

A new poll today shows a quarter of Republicans trust the Democrats and President Obama more than their own party on a broad aray of issues.

Why not switch parties so you can vote in the primaries? The Dems already support the second amendment, and they've done more in 3 months to protect habitat for hunting and fishing than the other folks did in 8 years.

Besides guns and hunting there are other issues some feel are important, like health care or the economy, or war and peace, or following the law or ... well you name it.

Sick of the party of no? There's a place for you over in the center of the political spectrum.

Dems already support the Second Amendment... Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh

Are you tired of a party that sticks to its principles rather than blindly following a cult of personality?

Are you bored with over 200 years of capitalism and ready to embrace socialist principles that have bankrupted nations throughout history?

Are you willing to let others do your thinking for you?

If you're a political lemming willing to suspend reality in order to chase a socialist pipe dream of individual liberties sacrificed on the altar of government control, the Democratic Party may be for you.

Gallup today
http://www.gallup.com/poll/117355/Obama-Approval-Rating-Stable-Polarized...

Yes, the second amendment, because it's in our Constitution and SCOTUS ruled in Heller that it's an individual right. The leader of our party has stated that he also sees it that way.

Yes, I do like a party that sticks to it's pricipals and doesn't follow a ruler blindly, that's why I'm a Democrat, and that's why I hope other people might also become former Republicans. Our platform, plans, and ideas were clearly stated during the election, the people voted, and now those plans are being implemented. In contrast name one new Republican idea. (drill drill drill doesn't count)

The United States and the Democratic party are capitlaists, but not unregulated irresponsible capitalsists, we've seen what that brought us, in 1929 and in 2008.

Tired of shouting? Want a clean environment, health care and schools?

Look at the attachment. I figure a quarter of that 27% of the voting population that identifies Republican is about 7%. Would be nice.

And what, pray tell, is it that "got brought-en" on us in '29 and '08 that was the republican party's fault?
I'd like to hear this one.

It ain't Republicans repeatedly submitting gun control bills in Congress -- and the last time I checked, your Dear Leader was advocating an assault weapons ban.

I really have no idea what "capitlaists" or "capitalsists" are. But I do know not to put any stock in economic analysis generated by someone who can't even spell "capitalist."

And as far as capitalism goes, I have a lot more faith in unregulated capitalists than unregulated socialists.

White is unchanged

Darker red is shifted Republican

Darker blue is shifted Democratic

And bear in mind this is before the huge financial meltdown that precipitated the system wide crash that the two previous posters seem so in love with. (Don't understand how people can take such pride in failure)

The cheese stands alone.

Dinosaurs don't eat ice cream.

I once had a dog that barked at pickup trucks.

The map reflects one election and contributes nothing to the conversation.

Carry on.

I don't want to be a member of a party that holds Pelosi, Reid, Kennedy, Franks, Jackson, Sharpton, Ayers, Churchill, and others like them in high esteem. That is why I left and why I will never return to the Democrat party.

I agree with you 100% CVC! There was a time when I considered myself unaffiliated and would vote for the person, not the party affiliation. No more. The democrats are too far left now and do not represent my beliefs.

Pangolin you want a true picture of how America feels about Obama, look at the live MSNBC poll (its posted on another thread). Now that is a large enough sampling of our population and reflects how people REALLY feel about Obama. You're deluding yourself if you think people are leaving the republican party for the spendthrift dems.

I have come up with two new definitions. Maybe Webster's will adopt them.

1. Civetisms......Words, phrases or sayings having no meaning except to civetcat/pangolin.
Examples.....truthiness. Semi auto converted carbine and the latest, capitalsists.

2. Capitalsists.....malignant growth on Capitalism. Cancerous economic tumor needing immediate removal. Seems appropriate for the new administration to me!! Laugh
