Yet Another Capitulation



Another Capitulation.

I don't get tired of presenting these, I feel duty bound in some respect.

You see, I want something in America that hasn't happened in a while.

I want to see Democrats be held accountable.

I want them to do what they promised. To not behave in the way they criticized Bush and Republicans for.

I may be asking much, but really conservatives do it all the time.

I especially want a choice next election. Beyond the Republican candidate and my usual third party choice.

I don't want another Presidential candidate taken from the 'most electable' stack.

I want one with ideas and issues and a track record. Again, that may be asking for much from liberals today but it wasn't always that way.

If we start expecting more from them, then maybe they'll start delivering.

Don't you get tired of all the complaining about how 'things' are with no true efforts to change them despite promises to do so?


  1. 1. I can't tell from your post if you lump Democrats and Liberals into one bunch. Of the majority of Liberals I know, very few of them would hang their hat with the Democrats.

    2. Considering there are several parties besides the Ds and Rs, would you mind clarifying what you mean by "'usual' third party choice?"

  2. I used 'Democrats' at the beginning because with a couple of exceptions all the liberals in Congress are Democrats and it is they who aren't held accountable by . . .

    liberals who today think its more prudent to not criticize them for not delivering.

    Those 'Democrats' more often than not promise classic liberal solutions, as well as echoing the classic liberal outrages, and do get the liberal votes.

    There are certainly more conservative players outside of the GOP than liberals players outside of the Democrat Party. By players I mean elected figures or actual candidates. Which speaks of the loyalty liberals have for the Democrats.

    Conservatives do turn their collective backs on GOP candidates, and I think it would good for the liberals to do the same to Democrats.

    As far as my 'usual' third party choice, I only voted for a mainstream candidate once for President and that is because I thought he 1.) had a text book first term, and 2.) the opposition was a horrible match to my preferences, and 3.) the third party slate was slimmer than usual and after much thought, I thought that a text book term was worth rewarding.

    Thanks for commenting.
