What’s up with Democrats?

I was a Democrat above the Rio Bravo all of my life, and I continued with that mindset till the 2008 presidential election.

One of the numerous things that caused me to switch sides was the inaugural in January 2009. A news camera was behind the stage just before Obama stepped out to take the oath of office. He had the look of a deer caught in the headlights. It really stuck with me. He no longer has that attitude. Quite the contrary. He’s full of himself.

It’s incredible that so many otherwise intelligent people continue to vote for Democrats. For decades now, states and cities run by Democrats are messes. High crime, high taxes, and bad ideas run rampant. Republicans create much nicer places.

As this six-minute video points out, people and businesses are fleeing blue states and moving to red states. It is never the reverse, just as Cubans raft from their island to Key West, not in the other direction. Incidentally, it’s not uncommon to encounter Democrats who think Cuba is a fine and dandy place.

I’ve been there. It’s not.

Even famous liberal — the term actually applies to him, mostly — Bill Maher states the obvious. Perhaps some Democrat who reads The Moon — and who has not been blocked for rudeness — can explain why he or she sticks with that party. It’s a legitimate mystery to me.

Thanks in advance. I know you are out there.

  1. Haha, here days later and not a single comment. Not even your avowedly conservative readers dared this one. Gave me a good chuckle.

    1. Kim: Yeah, sad. But it indicates the degree that the Democrat/Socialists have people cowering under their beds. Sad, very sad. And the few Democrats that I know read this website cannot come up with any explanations either.

  2. Sorry about the delayed comment. In my little corner of the world, life has been very busy, and there is not always the time to “plug in” to the tech world.

    From what I can tell, the current state of the world is the result of people forgetting the basics of honesty, courtesy and respect. With these basics, life is much more pleasant and seem to me to be the beginning of a balanced society. With honesty, courtesy and respect come maturity, a sense of responsibility and an ‘agree to disagree’ mentality. This means people taking the time and making the effort to find common ground. People are not always honest, courteous &/or respectful, however, when these are the basics in any nation or community, then the majority of people who live there strive to be honest, courteous and respectful because one of the last things people want is to be considered rude.

    Unfortunately, the current immaturity that has immersed itself in our world has spawned a plethora of societal sludge that has almost completely replaced honesty, courtesy and respect as a whole. It is incredibly disheartening.

    Why? It is now commonplace to have to explain ad nauseam the most basic of the basics. It is pitiful that I must explain to adults in their 30s, 40s, 50s or older that various emotions are normal: anger, happiness, frustration, sadness, fear, joy, etc., are just part of everyday life. As bad as that is, it is far from the worst. What’s worse is it is no longer possible to have a conversation with adults in their 30s, 40s, 50s or older because they do not understand and cannot comprehend that throwing a tantrum or becoming despondent because something unpleasant happened is inappropriate.

    Sadly, over the past few years I have lost friends and some family because it is no longer acceptable to have a differing opinion. If I do not agree and blindly support them, then there cannot be a friendship &/or remain part of the family. I feel like I stepped out of Rip Van Winkle’s dream and straight into the middle of the Hatfields-Mccoys feud.
