Why Republicans Should Vote for Democrats (at least this time)

November 4, 2006 | By | 3 Replies More

Here’s an interesting column by a staunch Republican Kevin Koehler, who is fed up that our single party government is doing everything that they have always dunned Democrats for doing.

His Preface:

I am a Southerner, a conservative, and what the press cynically labels a Bible-believing Christian. I’ve voted in every election since the day I turned 18. I drank the Kool-Aid of Reaganism. I’m on the mailing lists. On paper, I’m what Karl Rove secretly wishes every American would be. And this election day, I will be voting for every Democrat seeking national office I can.

He explains that, although he didn’t mind the record deficits of the Reagan years, the current administration’s conversion of the balanced budget (surplus!) of “spendocrat” Clinton to a record deficit (that actually exceeds the total capital worth of all American Industry combined) gives him pause.

    I've been looking into Sweden just in case things go crazy over here (i.e. creationism in schools, zombie outbreak…). SEVEN political parties with at least 5% of the parliament seats!

    They are busy spending as though there is no tomorrow. As I've posted before (http://dangerousintersection.org/?p=364), some of those currently in power are actually hoping and praying that there is no tomorrow. Sweden? Sounding better and better to me . . .

    We're headed to a national collapse which will make the Great Depression look like a picnic. If we don't stop this, our kids should let us starve. Sweden isn't an option.
