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.

Welcome to the right side

Want to have a good time? Watch WalkAway videos on YouTube. Staunch members of the Democrat Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democrat Party, will tell you it’s a fake movement of Russian bots, or something like that, but it’s quite real, formed by Brandon Straka, a gay, New York City hairstylist, two years ago.

Thousands of people are abandoning the Democrat Socialist Party and moving to the GOP. There is no corresponding movement of people going in the other direction. Think of it this way: Cubans paddle toward Key West, but no one paddles toward Havana.

What’s perhaps most interesting about the WalkAway Movement is its diversity. Blacks, Anglos, Latinos, Christians, non-believers, men, women, straights, gays, transsexuals, you name it, which puts the lie to what the Democrat Socialist Party would have you believe, that the GOP is just racist, straight, white rednecks. We are the real rainbow.

The video above is a good example. Meet Ricky Rebel from Hollywood.

If you’ve always voted Democrat, as I did till 2007, know that you can join the multitude that’s quitting the Democrat Socialists, and you can vote in your best interests. Don’t be a sheep. Don’t listen to CNN, NPR or read The New York Times or The Washington Post if you want accurate news.

Hop on the raft to our Key West. You’ll find free speech, a sense of humor, mojitos, black bean soup and empanadas waiting on the dock, nice and warm.
