Do Democrats Really Care?
"I sure hope my white sheets in the dryer are done."
Intention and forethought are great things. They set the precedent for the follow through of ideas and the finishing of goals. Yet the motivation behind such intentions must be examined in order to see into a persons true heart. The democrats are talkers. They have meetings, stage protests, have open townhalls and start websites. They make cute little computer programs that keep running totals of supposedly how much the war is supposed to cost or how many "innocent civilians have died". But is the sentiment behind these websites, protests, meetings, and townhalls really about caring for their fellow man?
Let's take Iraq. Democrats make the point to talk about the children dying due to war as often as they brush their teeth. But if you try and talk with them about how many children were killed or starved to death under Saddam Hussein they don't want to hear about it. If you try to weigh the cost in deaths with war vs. keeping Saddam in power they will almost always starting spouting some talking point about "Bush's war for oil." It's tired and old.
What about racism? Democrats love to think of themselves as champions of civil rights. A surface look back at the voting records of congress during the 50's and 60's will show you that Republicans voted either equally for Civil Rights with the Democrats if not more so. In fact it's common knowledge that more Republicans voted for The 1964 Civil Rights Act percentage wise than did democrats. Diane Alden wrote This Article in 2002. In it she explains that without the Republicans the Civil Rights Act never would have passed. This point is lost on the Democrats who are so desperate to keep minorities blindly voting for them in order to feed their plans of keeping the public dependent on the government. I mean, can you really call the democrats a caring party when they continue to keep on their roster a senator who was in the KKK for years and has even recently made very offensive comments about minorities?
Do they care, Or do they need you to think they care?
