If You Are Not a Leftist, Why Are You Voting Democrat?
Jewish World Review ^ | 9/28/'10 | Dennis Prager

Posted on 09/28/2010 10:58:11 AM PDT by Zionist Conspirator

All Americans, including conservatives, understand why any leftist would vote Democrat this year. The Democratic Party is now America's version of a European Social Democratic or even Green Party. In domestic policy, there is no significant difference between the American and European parties.

So there is no question as to why those on the left would vote Democrat. There is, however, a legitimate question regarding non-leftist Americans — why would any of them vote for a Democrat this year?

An excellent article by Dennis Prager, which I didn't find on "search."

He leaves out a couple more reasons people reflexively vote Democrat: some people are still at war with Abraham Lincoln and/or voting against Herbert Hoover. Stupid.

because some unobservant people believe the media stereotyping and demonization of the GOP, they see Mtv and SNL attack Palin etc and they think that is just the way it is

A taxpayer voting for a lib, is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.

I just listened on Rush to a woman who claimed to be more conservative than the Republicans but who voted for Obama. Sorry, my brain simply cannot wrap itself around how anyone could do that.

Abortion is probably the single biggest issue that keeps otherwise center or center-right women voting for the Dems.

I know people who are in the NRA, believe they are taxed too much, very pro-military, want a smaller government yet vote for the democrat party in order to protect a woman’s ‘reproduction rights’.

“If You Are Not a Leftist, Why Are You Voting Democrat?”

Many who vote DemocRAT are too dumb to be considered a liberal. Look around at those that vote for the RATS and you’ll see a whole bunch of lazy slobs that don’t want to take care of themselves and expect the working people to do so for them. And no, I am not talking about the sick or infirmed who are really in need of aid.

>>But they have mastered one thing — the ability to paint their opponents as racist opponents of blacks.

Abe Lincoln—Republican
Republicans—Anti-slavery
13th Amendment banning slavery—Passed by Republican dominated Congress
KKK—Featuring many Democrats in its ranks (incl Sen Byrd)

Martin Luther King—Republican

Because - (I’m speaking for those who refuse to admit they might be wrong).....

... because I believe the promises. Heck - they SOUND good.

..... because I like to feel good about myself

....... because I want things to get better and I “really” do not have a clue as to what would actually work

......... because it is much to hard to do anything that requires actual work and intelligent thought

"If You Are Not a Radical Leftist, Why Are You Voting Democrat?"

Don't sugarcoat it. The Democratic Party has become a party of Marxist thugs.

Our family were the original Reagan Democrats. Conservative on all issues. We supported a strong military, and my parents voted against every tax increase on the ballot. Yet because they were fed the lie that “Republicans are for the Rich, Democrats are for the Middle Class”, so they just voted Democrat time after time. Over time, with a little educating from this guy who just hit the radio [Rush], My parents and all five of us kids saw the error of our ways and found our real home in the Republican Party.

Speaking as a former Democrat, I find it hard to believe anyone short of being a “Leftist” would feel comfortable in that party today. And it is far far more Left than it was when we left it.

Don't forget "anti-religious bigotry". I khow several people who, functionally, are conservative but hate the religious right so much that they vote Democrat. Nuts!

There are also the lazy "Family Heritage" types who vote D because Granddaddy was a big George Wallace supporter.

Voting Democrat is like a drunken one night stand.

You didn’t think it would happen. You regret the walk of shame. You catch yourself moralizing your decision, then ignoring it using some bullsh!t learned from a professor. You wonder what diseases dwell inside you and your partner. You feel used. Your hangover doesn’t leave. What’s that horrible taste in your mouth and pain. Hate the fact you’re used to so-called friends abuse you.

But

You think consequences don’t apply to you. You relate to others like you and think you are all the norm. You complain life is never fair. You wonder why you look like hell. You know a better bar next week. One day your true love will be found. You hate judgment because it exposes your life as a fraud. You will be in a stranger’s bed next time.

You typed it yourself "woman"; (not all, just too many).

Remember, if only men's votes had been counted, Clinton
would have lost both times.

My Dad was generally conservative but voted Democrat. He was a teacher and always said that, *most people voted their pocket books). In short he was bought off.

Voting Democrat is like a drunken one night stand.

Which is EXACTLY why many people (especially women) vote democrat. They do not want to TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for the outcome of a DRUNKEN ONE NIGHT STAND (getting pregnant), so... they vote for Democrat Politicians, whose LEADERSHIP consists of AVOIDING ANY RESPONSIBILITY for the LAWS they pass, or the ones they personally violate.

And if you ask them, they will tell you they would never have an abortion but it is a woman’s choice they are protecting.

Yeah, the choice to kill nascent human life. So liberating.
