Bullet's post on Bennets comments on abortion got me thinking of a Wall Street Journal editorial piece of a few years ago:

http://www.opinionjournal.com/extra/?id=110005277

The author basically claims that the democratic party is aborting away their own constituants. At the time of reading this article, I pretty much thought he was making a lot of guestimation on the topic...but I'm starting to wonder just how "wrong" he was.

America feels more conservative than it ever has been before...so, is he right? Or, are there other factors of this new conservative rise?

I'm going to say, that my own opinion on it is that the democratic party has basically moved too far left and they've alienated a lot of the moderate democrats, Independents, and Republicans that would vote for a moderate Democrat...that's still my take on it, but ask me that question again in 20 years, lol.

Well, I think that you're right about this country going way to the right. After 911 I think this country felt the need to keep a republican in office as most people don't feel secure in times of war with democrats in office. Their too soft and by nature democrats want a smaller military and when we got attacked I think it was a wake up call to a lot of people who used to laugh at republican's and their wanting a big military because they never would have imagined we would get attacked.

So all the middle of the road that might go either way leaned a little to the right. However, the problem is that Bush is just a fucking whacko extreme right piece of shit. So, Bush is taking full of advantage of his office and getting all the people in office he wants. So this country is gonna lean to the right for many years to come. Normally it wouldn't be like that and even if we get a democrat prez next time it won't help much as Bush, the luckiest fucking moron alive has had the chance to fill up the supreme court with not one but two of his choices. The supreme court is where real happens. The right to abortion is probably gonna be gone in a few years now. It's gonna suck ass. Porn is gonna be hurting if anything ends up in the hands of the new supreme court.

I have more to say but poker is starting lol

I was thinking a day ago about Richard Nixon...yeah, I don't know why, but I did. He was a major fuck up, but the single most brilliant thing he ever did was speak of this "Silent Majority"...the main bulk of America who's not really represented by either party.

I can honestly say, I'm not Republican, I'm not a Democrat, and neither of these two parties speak for the core of my beliefs. Democrats are too bleeding heart for me, Republicans are too fucking rigid and psycho, and I'm pretty sure most of the population when they vote end up voting for the person that may seem more moderate.

In my opinion BOTH parties are extremists and I don't really want to vote for either of them come election time. The sad thing is the moderate candidates that exist in the Rep. and Dem. parties will never be chosen because they "party" supports the group that steps most in line with their platform.

As for abortion thinning the democratic party...I'm thinking that's not completely an insane theory...especially since the Rep. have held the house and senate longer than 9/11
