The GOP Thinks Organizing in Your Community is Worthless

Election '08



Well, I suppose we should all just throw up our hands and let local children starve, let civil rights problems fester, and shut up and accept every problem for what it is:  our lot in life.  


Screw the poor.  To hell with women being allowed to vote.  Rollback the end of slavery.  And get yer hazmat suits, because your environment is about to be sold off piecemeal to the highest bidder -- hunters, fishermen, and wildlife enthusiasts be damned.


Welcome to Republican world, where trying to make things better in your hometown makes you something they laugh at proudly.  How's that feel America?


Correct me if I'm wrong, but without community organizers like Martin Luther King, Jr., we'd all still be dealing with separate water fountains for coloreds and Jim Crow Laws.  And I mean the old ones, not the new poll tax crap that Hans Von Spakovsky keeps trying to sneak in through the sewers.


Oh, and ladies?   No community organizers means that your voice doesn't count for shit.  No vote for you!
