Because the Democrats want to relegate Iraqis to what Patrick Lasswell calls “indentured servitude” by saddling them with loans, he has decided to change his party affiliation from Independent to Republican.
I do not think all that much of many of the Republicans in control of the local constituency, but on the whole, that is more of a challenge than a matter for despair…The Democrats have embraced isolationism instead of opposing the next holocaust and they are as damned for that position as the Republicans were in 1941.
Way to go, Democrats. Selling your own values up the river is a losing strategy. It alienates the independent center and your life-long adherents.
You will not win respect or elections or power this way.
Liberal blogger Bill Herbert gets it right.
Support democracy in Iraq. And debt forgiveness.
