An Unpopular War.

Posted by mudac on May 27, 2008

There is a war raging, and it isn’t overseas. No, it is right here, right in your very own back yard. I once believed this to be a non-violent country, that is until now. Sure we wage war every 10 years, but some things are necessary–not that Iraq is.  My point that I am getting to is that we are battling one another and no one has stopped to look around to figure out why. There is two sides to every story, of course–we all have our own opinion and most will not sway. This “battle”, that I am referring to, is one that America does not need. The battle, is of course, in politics. The battle in the Democratic party has over half of America fighting with one another, and we are supposed to be on the same team. I am sure the Republicans are enjoying it. The problem is though–that we will only begin to fight worse, especially after June 1st. This is not the situation any of us want to be in. The simple fact will be that Hillary will have more votes and Barack Obama will have more delegates after this day. I don’t want to point this out, but the Democrats have argued that the popular vote is more important that delegates or electoral votes since 2000, and before that for some. It does not look good for you when you are being a hypocrite.

The biggest problem the DNC will face is that the candidates, Barack and Hillary, both have great arguments, and only one can win. The Democrats could be, oddly enough, splitting atoms in their own party by their own rules. The convention won’t be a fun one for us beloved Dems, nor will the aftermath. There will be a rage like no other, with protests outside the facilities in Denver.

There is more problems to overcome though, when I look at it I see multiple problems.  Another one of these problems is that there is far liberals and moderates in the party. Right now, we have two candidates of different spectrums running. Look at Obama, was proclaimed the most liberal Senator to ever grace the Senate floor. Then look at Hillary, who has been considered a moderate–one who reaches over and grabs conservatives while pulling in the liberals. You may claim “look at Obama and Clinton’s message, they seem almost identical”. Sadly, their stump speeches have similar policies, but historically their voting records are different to an extreme factor.

This has become an all out war, whether you are an Obama supporter or a Clinton supporter you will be fighting for your candidate through August. Just remember that the longer this goes, the more mud you will end up digging from your eyes.

    Great article – the Dems have really screwed this primary up – and they could of had an easy road to the white house.
    It is the fault of the DNC – they have allowed this mess to happen starting with punishing FL & MI – NOW what to do???
    What were they thinking – 2 huge states – kick them out – might need a few of those votes to win the general.
    Sad but true – the party will NEVER “unite” – and all come together – I’m sure the GOP will welcome us and count ALL our votes.

    Great article. The DNC has destroyed the party. I am outraged that they have not supported Florida and Michigan.
