“Half-Ass” Democrats

The Democrats should change the name of their party.  The “One Person – One Vote” mantra reserved for democracies does not apply here.  If you’re a Democratic voter from Florida or Michigan, your vote only counts for half a vote.  That’s not Democratic.

One can make the case that Michigan had to be fixed somehow because many of the Democratic candidates chose to be taken off the ballot when it was announced that Michigan votes would not count.  Florida was different.  Neither candidate campaigned in Florida.  They had equal exposure and Hillary Clinton won in Florida.  Floridian Democrats are being punished because the Republican-majority State House and the Republican-Majority State Senate voted to move the primary dates earlier.  (Much to the chagrin of Democratic Party leader Howard Dean).  I should note that it was signed into law by Charlie Crist, a Republican governor.

Hillary Clinton supporters:   Instead of voting for John McCain  as a protest  to the DNC’s decision, I would like to suggest a vote for Bob Barr.  If you vote for McCain, you would be rewarding the party that shafted the elections in your state.  The Bob Barr of today is different than the Bob Barr that helped impeach former President Bill Clinton.

    Yesterday DNC said to Floridians: you are only a half people. And today we respond to DNC: go to hell, we then chose McCain!

  2. Why punish your party by rewarding the Republicans? If you don’t think that Obama would be a better president than McCain, then you shouldn’t be a Democrat.

    Vortex is right. Voting for McCain is a bad idea.
