The Democratic capitulation is complete. Telecom immunity will shortly be a real disaster instead of an imagined disaster. The telecom’s millions of lobbying dollars was money well spent. I hope you enjoy paying your cell phone bill every month – that’s where your money is going. Not to service or functionality, but to ensuring their illegal acts are swept under the rug.
To those who are expressing amazement that the President with the lowest approval rating in American history keeps getting exactly what he wants, I want you to read the following very carefully. If you keep voting for candidates simply because they have a (D) behind their name, these capitulations are exactly what you deserve. If the criteria you employ to vote for a person is that a Democrat just has to be better than a Republican simply because they’re running as one, this kind of thing will keep happening. Stop whining when you sell yourself and the rest of us short. It’s pathetic. Either a candidate subscribes to tenets set forth by members of the party or they don’t. If they don’t, they shouldn’t hold office representing that party. Which leads us to the obvious: stop voting for them!
If Democrats are complicit in the illegal activities of telecoms, that’s their problem. I didn’t ask them to approve illegal wiretapping. Here is where I think true Democrats break from Republicans: no elected official of my party should hold office if they’re corrupt. And I’m going to work to get the corrupt ones replaced by better Democrats.
