Your Handy Dandy 2010 Voting Guide

From the Democratic Socialists of America website:


"Q Aren't you a party that's in competition with the

Democratic Party for votes and support?

No, we are not a separate party. Like our friends and allies in the feminist, labor, civil rights, religious,

and community organizing movements, many of us have been active in the Democratic Party. We work with

those movements to strengthen the party’s left wing, represented by the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

The process and structure of American elections seriously hurts third party efforts. Winner-take-all

elections instead of proportional representation, rigorous party qualification requirements that vary from state

to state, a presidential instead of a parliamentary system, and the two-party monopoly on political power have

doomed third party efforts. We hope that at some point in the future, in coalition with our allies, an alternative

national party will be viable. For now, we will continue to support progressives who have a real chance at

winning elections, which usually means left-wing Democrats."


Hey! Don't be lazy! Click this link so you know I'm not just making this up:



There you have it, folks. No chalk board. No crying. No rallies. No Tea Party. No Right Wing hysterics. There's the truth, with all its warts, pus-filled sores, and really bad breath.

Let me ask you, America, is this what you want ? People being lauded by the fringe left running your bank, your insurance company, your manufacturers, or possibly your life ?

I'm not going to sit here and tell you who to vote for. Odds are, if you're reading this column, you're in one of two camps. The first camp is Chairman Obama is wrong every day of the week and twice on Sunday. (Needless to say, this is the camp I call home.) Thus, my telling you who to vote for would be an obvious example of preaching to the choir. The second camp would be would be the 2+2=5 Progressivevik junta camp that wants to send people like me to a FEMA camp. Attempting to reason with you would be like attempting to explain journalism to Keith Olbermann, so I won't even bother, since it would be an exercise in futility.

I'm not going to tell you who to vote for, but I'm damn well going to tell you how to vote.

Use your head for more than a hat rack.

God help us all.
