Reasons for Voting Democratic

12 Reasons_voted Dem

This is good, but I heard other comments as to why people voted Democratic. One for example among black folks is, “If Romney won, he would put us back in slavery.” Now that comes across ridiculous to me, but lot of folks in my family/friend circle really believed that about Mitt Romney. Romney’s 47% comment really did him in. His campaign managers did not do enough damage control on that one.

As far as #7 goes, I use to be a part of the Christian crowd that votes the Democratic Party while ignoring their official stand on being nothing wrong with abortion i.e. destroying an unborn baby. Being spiritually convicted on abortion is a big part of the reason as to why I now have a hard time voting that political party. It shames me that I was even okay with abortion for a time. I wonder how Christian Democrats can vote for Barack Obama who supports the killing of a baby that survives a late-term abortion! I wonder why they do not mind their tax money going to financial support of abortion!

From my experiences through Facebook interactions, reading columns and listening to voters on radio, TV, some family and friends, #9 is a pretty popular reason why Barack Obama and Democrat candidates received their votes. How often did I hear that this country was center-right? Well, according to the Nov 6 election victories, that definitely is no longer true. Too many people really think they have a right to the money of someone who is more financially successful. Too many people feel entitled to services they can’t afford on their own and have no problem with increased taxpayer support. The left side has really grown. Those of us who know better, should be very concerned, because these people are helping socialism to take a much stronger hold of this country.

Union Foot Shooting

Shooting your self in the foot! Yes, that is what the Hostess Baker’s Union did to itself. The result of their striking the Hostess Baking Company is an unavoidable trip to the unemployment line. And sadly, thousands more of the non-union Hostess employees will also lengthen that unemployment line. Down  in Philly which is the city of most of my life,  a Hostess plant is adding hundreds to the already burgeoning unemployment rolls. With the continuing unhealthy job situation, what is going on in a union striker’s mind these days?

Post Election Thoughts on The Republicans and Democrats.

Well, starting with my Sunday Veterans Day post,  it has been about 2 months since my last post. I did not mean to take this long of a hiatus from blogging, but I did. I had a gut feeling that Mitt Romney was not going to win the presidential election, but did get my hopes up a little seeing such large enthusiastic crowds at the Romney rallies. The pundits on the right got it so wrong. For example, Glenn Beck predicted over 300 electoral vote victory for Romney.  How wrong was that? I knew not to get excited over Dick Morris’s landslide prediction for Mr. Romney. His wrong predictions extremely outweigh his correct ones.

People everywhere are saying that the Republican Party is in shambles and needs to change. Radio talker and libertarian minded, but Republican voter Neal Boortz does not like the social issues wing of the Republican Party. He along with so many others blame that wing for pushing the anti-abortion stand. Then there are those who point to the Republican Party being anti-gay and anti-immigration.

Please, Republicans Party do not change your platform on issues that will turn you into a democratic lite political party. It is fine with me that the Republican Party is anti-abortion, pro traditional family and anti-illegal immigration.

The Democrats are really not about personal responsibility. That phony “War on Women” proves it. The real “War on Women” is in the Islamic Middle East and it is showing up in countries of Islamic immigration.  Late last summer at the Democratic Presidential Convention, I found it awful that even the First Lady, Michelle Obama emphasized a woman’s right to free birth control and the right to choose which is really the right to abort/kill unborn babies, all at taxpayers’ expense. It saddens me to see that so many women in this country agree with the First Lady. God help us if the Republicans go that direction.

The Democrat Party is officially pro gay everything. They are behind the gay lifestyle being taught in public schools. I cannot go with that. Single as I am, I am pro traditional marriage and traditional family. The pro-illegal immigration does have some Republican backers. The latest to join that side is conservative radio talker and TV host, Sean Hannity. I do admit I think something should be done only for children brought here by their illegal immigrating parents. That does not include giving them  instate college tuition rates or types of privileges that put them ahead of citizens in this country.

I am seeing too many Republicans giving up. Some of my Facebook friends have gone to posting pictures of cutesy animals in place of hard-hitting pro Republican and conservative news links. Not me! As a former Democrat, I remember when the Democratic Party went through similar tough times. They did not give up. They did not become Republican lite. In fact, they went further left and now we have Barack Obama for a 2nd term. Yes, Republicans need to evaluate what went right and wrong and then positively move on to push conservative ideas for future victories.
