Democrats For Change

Democrats For Change

Questions abound in this political season finding very few answers. It’s no secret that politicians have always been slippery when it comes to straight answers, but the present crop of Democrats has reached a new low. They no longer feel the need to give specific answers to important questions making it virtually impossible to vote for them based on issues. Instead, they rely in vague euphemisms and emotional stunts. They use phrases like, “the need for change.”

What exactly does that mean, and why is it tossed about like some holy nugget?

The word “change” is made to order for the politician bent on concealing their agenda or lack of ideas. They toss the phase into a crowd of voters with the hope each will insert their own personal thought of what change should be. As expected, many will mistakenly assume that the politician agrees with them thus garnering allegiance. This is a very clever tactic and worthy of the deceptive nature of a politician.

When no clear specifics are offered you can bet skullduggery is afoot. By talking in abstracts, how can we be certain that the good of the country is their chief concern and not just the wish to fulfill their own selfish desire for power? To date, all of the present Democrat candidates have displayed a deceitful nature and lack of moral fiber. In these dangerous times I would be negligent not to at least wonder how we can trust or even expect any of them to do what is best for the country.

At this point we might apply the old saying, “What we permit, we allow.” If we permit political candidates to win by expressing only vague ideas on their quest for the most powerful position in the land, then we allow the door to remain open for our own destruction.

If a candidate cries out for change and doesn’t tell us specifically what kind of change they have in mind, then they don’t deserve your vote.

  1. Hi LC,

    Love the picture! As to the verbiage, spot on.

    It does, however, give me an idea. I’m thinking of turning in my Republican card and running for office on the Socialist ticket. The keystone of my campaign, for local office, will be change, as in pocket change. The basis for this is that I suspect that most people, like myself, dump their pocket change into a jar at the end of the day, and when it’s full, they store it in the closet and put out a new jar. While savings in any way are a good thing, I suspect that the Government needs to harness this untapped resource by instituting a Government service to collect this loose change and invest it for the individual, and for the people. Thus, when elected, I’ll start a Government agency to collect and invest this resource, a third of the profits from which will go to the individual contributor, another third will go to the local Government, a sixth will go for management, and the rest to me.

    If this works, I’ll go State wide in the next election, expanding my pocket change agenda and adding a clean socks agenda, which would mandate that the State Government require each citizen to have available each day one pair of clean socks for their personal use. Of course, this will require the State to give tax breaks to laundry companies and sock manufacturer, as well as to those citizens who prove they clean their own socks.

    When that works, I’ll move on to the National level, upping the ante to clean underwear for one and all.

    After a term or two in the Senate, I’m figuring a run at the White House on the basis that everyone has the right a detailed car, funded by the Government. When I get to that point, I’ll be in touch about what Cabinet position you want.

  2. Hi Grit

    The loose change in the jar from the Socialist closet campaign… You gotta come up with a better name.

    Clean socks and underwear? Oh I got it! The wife has you doing laundry again. Do towels come with that Cabinet position? 🙂

  3. Hi LC,

    I do the laundry, dishes, and general cleaning, as well as the farming. Fortunately, since I seem to be more efficient than most homemakers, I still have plenty of time to roam the Internet.

    As to Cabinet positions, I was under the impression that they come with pretty much whatever you want 😉

    As to the name, earn your Cabinet position and pick a better one!

  4. Hi Grit

    I’ve heard that farming is more than a full time job, but it is winter so that could explain all the extra time. I hope the wife is rewarding you appropriately for your effort.

    Your ideas are unique, but I think I’ve hit upon the perfect campaign slogan that best describes your vision. “Change for Change.” It expresses very little, but yet says absolutely nothing. It’s what the people want!

  5. Hi LC,

    Screw what the people want! They’ll want what I tell them they want. Well, at least after the election 😉

    It could be that I’m not exactly political candidate material. On the other hand, if there’s an opening for Chief of the Secret Police…

  6. Hi Grit

    You’re the man!

    Where do I sign up as your Lieutenant? As I see it, the secret police would be a lot more fun than a mere politician. Besides, I have a list. 🙂
