We lost.Submitted by Unknownuser on Sun, 02/17/2013 - 00:28
We had our convention today to elect committee members. We had a slate of people to put up against the establishment. They had not been challenged in 12 years.
But one by one we lost each election. I'm not sure why.
These people were so quick to pat each others backs claiming victory in this year's elections. One of our representatives won by 1 vote. Hardly a victory.
Out of 180 delegates elected last year, only 90 showed today.
Our party is not only broken...but we are broke. They had a silent auction at the convention today. Some of the top donations were some pies and a couple of bottles of wine.
Last year's convention was the first one I have ever attended. I was horrified by these people. We were touted as infiltrators and democrats and forced to show IDs even though we are in a state that does not require IDs. Yet each and everyone of them claimed in their speeches today to want to reach out to the youth vote.
Well guess what...I am the youth vote! And I was the youngest delegate on the floor by at least two decades.
My party is in trouble. We are on the verge of being non existent.
