    A warm reassuring message

    November 14th, 2006

    To My Conservative Brothers and Sisters,

    I know you are dismayed and disheartened at the results of last week's election. You're worried that the country is heading toward a very bad place you don't want it to go. Your 12-year Republican Revolution has ended with so much yet to do, so many promises left unfulfilled. You are in a funk, and I understand.

    Well, cheer up, my friends! Do not despair. I have good news for you. I, and the millions of others who are now in charge with our Democratic Congress, have a pledge we would like to make to you, a list of promises that we offer you because we value you as our fellow Americans. You deserve to know what we plan to do with our newfound power -- and, to be specific, what we will do to you and for you.

    Thus, here is our Liberal's Pledge to Disheartened Conservatives:

    Dear Conservatives and Republicans,

    I, and my fellow signatories, hereby make these promises to you:

    1. We will always respect you for your conservative beliefs. We will never, ever, call you "unpatriotic" simply because you disagree with us. In fact, we encourage you to dissent and disagree with us.

    2. We will let you marry whomever you want, even when some of us consider your behavior to be "different" or "immoral." Who you marry is none of our business. Love and be in love -- it's a wonderful gift.

    3. We will not spend your grandchildren's money on our personal whims or to enrich our friends. It's your checkbook, too, and we will balance it for you.

    4. When we soon bring our sons and daughters home from Iraq, we will bring your sons and daughters home, too. They deserve to live. We promise never to send your kids off to war based on either a mistake or a lie.

    5. When we make America the last Western democracy to have universal health coverage, and all Americans are able to get help when they fall ill, we promise that you, too, will be able to see a doctor, regardless of your ability to pay. And when stem cell research delivers treatments and cures for diseases that affect you and your loved ones, we'll make sure those advances are available to you and your family, too.

    6. Even though you have opposed environmental regulation, when we clean up our air and water, we, the Democratic majority, will let you, too, breathe the cleaner air and drink the purer water.

    7. Should a mass murderer ever kill 3,000 people on our soil, we will devote every single resource to tracking him down and bringing him to justice. Immediately. We will protect you.

    8. We will never stick our nose in your bedroom or your womb. What you do there as consenting adults is your business. We will continue to count your age from the moment you were born, not the moment you were conceived.

    9. We will not take away your hunting guns. If you need an automatic weapon or a handgun to kill a bird or a deer, then you really aren't much of a hunter and you should, perhaps, pick up another sport. We will make our streets and schools as free as we can from these weapons and we will protect your children just as we would protect ours.

    10. When we raise the minimum wage, we will pay you -- and your employees -- that new wage, too. When women are finally paid what men make, we will pay conservative women that wage, too.

    11. We will respect your religious beliefs, even when you don't put those beliefs into practice. In fact, we will actively seek to promote your most radical religious beliefs ("Blessed are the poor," "Blessed are the peacemakers," "Love your enemies," "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God," and "Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."). We will let people in other countries know that God doesn't just bless America, he blesses everyone. We will discourage religious intolerance and fanaticism -- starting with the fanaticism here at home, thus setting a good example for the rest of the world.

    12. We will not tolerate politicians who are corrupt and who are bought and paid for by the rich. We will go after any elected leader who puts him or herself ahead of the people. And we promise you we will go after the corrupt politicians on our side FIRST. If we fail to do this, we need you to call us on it. Simply because we are in power does not give us the right to turn our heads the other way when our party goes astray. Please perform this important duty as the loyal opposition.

    I promise all of the above to you because this is your country, too. You are every bit as American as we are. We are all in this together. We sink or swim as one. Thank you for your years of service to this country and for giving us the opportunity to see if we can make things a bit better for our 300 million fellow Americans -- and for the rest of the world.

    Signed,

    That's not saying a whole lot. I'm not too optimistic this regime change will make much difference. Unfortunately our two party dictatorship has us selecting the lesser of two evils every time we vote. I think I'm going to just cast my vote against the incumbent every time until the government is more to my liking in my opinion it's the only way to send both parties the message that we are not going to put up with this crap anymore.

    Seems like that was just done-- now, give it a chance to work. Then in a couple of years, you can get rid of the Chimp and a few more of the bad guys. Not all incumbents are bad guys.

    He just doesn't get it. The second amendment isn't there to protect hunting. It is there to protect the "right to keep and bear arms." That includes handguns and semi-automatic firearms.
    A man's greatest mistake is to think he is working for somebody else.

    Fortunately for us conservatives most of the Democrats voted in are NOT Yellow dog, but rather Blue Dogs - which will probably please many of us, and maybe most of us more than the no-nothing Republican that are now leaving congress. They fought among themselves, never agreed on anything, quaked in their boots at the sight of a yellow dog, and refused to support the president. Good riddance, I say!

    Now the struggle will be between the Blue Dogs and Yellow Dogs. The Yellow Dogs, much like you, believe that the American people want liberalism, but it was the Conservative Blue Dogs that have been voted in.

    But wait a minute, the Democrats are not the majority in the Senate -- there are 49 Democrats and 49 Republicans and 2 Independents. Don't you think it a tad arrogant to assume that the Independents will just merrily (or is that gaily?) go along with the Democrats?

    Feel free to forward this to Michael Moore.

    You got that right! and may have to be used against our own government, if necessary. We would have never won our freedom from England if this country had gun control.

    Even now if too many of us get together the government moves in to ban us. This was all done under the Democrat watch.

    i do belong to the NRA, I took my training at their headquarters, and my motto is their motto -- You can have my gun when you pry my dead cold fingers from around it.

    And as a Republican, you seem to be too stupid to realize that you got slapped in the face-- Even GW realizes what happened.

    It was a Blue Dog that helped me get the repeal for the NMSL and stopped the Republicans in their tracks. So, go Blue Dogs - if you do a good enough job -- I'll even vote for you next time, but watch out for the Yellow Dogs they are vivious. If you get too effective you just might find out where they put Hoffa.
