I try to stay toward the center because both sides are so easy to disagree with. I’ve drifted decidedly left over the last several years as I watched freedoms here erode in the interest of Global Aggression. This week in Kremlinesque style and goosestep efficiency, a non-government entity, unelected by the people, and answerable to no one, has etermined that many American’s have no right to take part in the political process.
Having decided that backwater states Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina; and that glittery bastion of depravity in the desert, Necada will have first say in who will be the nominees for president of the United States, granting to them an incredible amount of clout, which isn’t in line with their representation of American Society as a whole.
To clue you in on what I’m talking about, look here. The DNC has determined that they and only they will get to decide when primaries shall be held, and invoked severe sanctions against any state that got out of line. This affects Michigan in particular, a state where manufacturing has been beaten into the ground by poor legislation and criminally negligent trade policies. Michigan would be a great representative in early primaries. They would be a good showcase of what is likely to happen in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. All these states have suffered under the economic malfeasance of both parties of government, and maintaining the status quo allows the DNC to continue to marginalize trade unions import in the nominating process. Unions are volatile, and are unlikely to come out strongly for those candidates the DNC favors, (Edwards, Obama, Clinton). The Firemen recently came out for Chris Dodd, and that is not a good thing for the big three.
It would appear to me that the party that has been raging about privacy and freedom from government intervention, has decided that the party itself should be the controlling organization in how elections are handled. Nice job. Way to push people back toward the right you idiotic Stalinists.
