11/11/05 12:35 am - ogt4ever - Mark Warner for President in 2008

I like to extend my Congradulations to Virgina's new Governor Elect Tim Kaine & present Governor Mark Warner for helping Virginia get back to back Democrat Governor seats for the 1st time in a long time. Helping Kaine win the election is a smidge of the acomplishments of Mark Warner, & while having a 75% aproval rating in a state that is prodimately Republican, he has turned Virgina's 6 Billion Dollars in Dept from when he took office & tured it into a Surplus. He has used a stradegy of appealing to Southern/& Rural Voters - something that would help in the National Election. so for anyone that would like to help me in supporting Mark Warner For President in 2008, if he runs, Vote For Him In The Primaries. - http://www.draftmarkwarner.com/

I'm not alienating any other Democratic Canadiates for President in 2008, but for those that would like to see Mark Warner run & win, I just want to make sure that they can support him.

10/7/05 09:07 pm - politicallydest - Virginia is for ...anything but Kaine or Kilgore

With the election just a month away, both Jerry Kilgore and Tim Kaine are out in full force, campagning for votes from the people of one of the richest states in America -- historically rich, anyway.

Dropping a friend of at the Gray Hound station today, I saw a clock on the wall that didn't work. I wanted to just think to myself, but I said aloud, "Ha, their clocks don't work, nor do their people." I got a few stares.

But even worst, much like the clock, and unlike the people -- who want to work, but aren't afforded the opportunities to -- the politicians here don't seem to want to work, either.

I've been very critical of Tim Kaine since I found out who he is, and I am going to continue to be critical now. While I believe this is, indeed, a time to heal and that rather than dividing America into red and blue states, we should be worrying about making it into the united (with a lower U and S) states.

I do believe that Republicans are good people (after all, what's-her-name is Republican and is wonderful), and I believe in compromising to build a better, more understanding America. But I still believe there are some issues we should never compromise as Democrats. Civil rights is one of those issues.

By civil rights, in this case, I mean recognizing that we cannot control who gets married. When it comes to love, the value of a relationship is how they love, not who they love. Yet, the governor-hopeful Democrat (and I use the term generously) Tim Kaine is still publicly against gay marriage. This is not an issue of comfort, it is an issue of what is moral imperrative. We, as a nation, must afford all people the tools neccessary to accomplish the American Dream. That dream begins with allowing people to love whomever they fit to have their love.

The moral compass of Tim Kaine is pointing a Southward direction when it comes to civil rights. That has to change.

Nearly 95 years ago, women tirelessly fought for their rights in an issue that pretty much divided America. And the right side won.

This date, we must also do the same. We must continue to fight for the grass root issues of our Democratic Party. Yes, we're willing to compromise with Republicans for a better America -- but like it or not, a better America starts with allowing the people to love.

At least that's where it starts for a state whose claims to be for lovers.
