Democracy Killed the DP - Next stop: The Liberty Movement itselfSubmitted by Bill Gillingham on Thu, 09/20/2012 - 13:59
Have the grassroots really become weeds? Is the goal to choke out all the leaders of the Liberty Movement? Is Ron Paul next?
I can't beleive what the 'average' DP member has become - which I gauge by the democratic element - the +/- voting.
In the past month or so, Jesse Benton, Rand Paul, Jack Hunter, John Tate, and more(?) have been torn apart on the DP. If you make a post in their defense, the negatives follow - or worse, you yourself are attacked as being a hack for the GOP. It gets to the point where you are afraid to post. Democracy in action.
The attacks against these folks are unreasonable and embarassing.
Frankly, I don't fit in around here. I presume many of the most reasonable folks have left long ago, leaving just the fringe of the fringe.
