Infiltrating the Democratic Party for LibertySubmitted by JanB1970 on Fri, 06/22/2012 - 01:13
I think anyone who has been listening to Dr. Paul and actually looking can safely say that currently there is zero difference between the current Republican Party and the current Democratic Party.
We've seen what we can accomplish within the Republican Party to get it back to its roots. (yes I realize there is still much to do and the fight is never really over) With that being said, Dr. Paul has maintained the reason he isn't going to go third party is because currently it is too difficult to get anything to happen via third party.
My "idea" or question if you will is....How do we start to bring the Democratic Party more inline with the Liberty movement as well?
I'm certainly NOT saying any of us should switch to the Democratic Party..but what I am saying is AFTER August (when "party vote" no longer matters) perhaps we should start talking to Democrats we know and work on showing them the benefits of Liberty but have them STAY in the Democratic Party.
Imagine if BOTH parties began to be taken over by the Liberty Movement and then started electing Liberty minded individuals. Then it wouldn't matter if your State was mostly Republican or mostly Democrat...because the Liberty Movement would be represented in both. Imagine Liberty Candidates being voted into Congress regardless of party affiliation!
Yes..I understand your first reaction might be "Democrats will never work towards Liberty because they want to have a nanny state"....but I disagree. While I think there will always be differences..there will be just as many similarities...and the pros outweigh the cons.
So..start thinking about those "die hard Democrats" you know...maybe you'll never be able to convince them to vote Republican, but you might be able to get them to support a Liberty Candidate who happens to be a Democrat.
Much Luv and Respect!
