There is a whole lot of rhetoric being spun around the notion that Hillary supporters are somehow not "true" Democrats if they choose not to vote for Barack Obama in the general election. The failure to understand that choice is, in actuality, the correct one for "true" Democrats is an indication that the Obama pushers are more interested in party unity than in Democratic principles.
Those principles were buried on May 31, 2008 by a group of elitist party "elders" who took it upon themselves to anoint a favored candidate as presumptive nominee of the party. We all know what went on then and I honestly don't have the stomach to regurgitate it. The arrogance, the diminution of voter input, the abandonment of democracy by the "Democratic" party were the rotten cherry on the top of a sour-milk sundae the DNC in concert with the MSM had been attempting to feed us for months. Like 9/11/2001 and 12/7/41 it is another date which will live on in infamy.
The party of the common people rejected those people in favor of a candidate who belittled the common voter as bitter, racist and spiritually needy. The party which protects and defended our civil rights has selected a man who now believes government spying on it's citizens without oversight is a good thing. The party which gave us Social Security and could bring about universal affordable health care has chosen not to discuss those issues any longer as the fish have already taken the bait. The party which allows us freedom of privacy and choice brings us the new improved Obama who would define those concepts according to whichever audience he is speaking to at the moment. That party is not the Democratic party I once knew and I now denounce and reject this new "fresh" stammering, stuttering version of something I was once so proud of.
So, for all those who care about party unity and think demeaning millions of people is the best solution to that problem; quit wasting your time. I am broken-nosed and battered and I will be as bitter I want to be and the "true" Democratic party would have had a place for me.
