Why ConservativeDemocratNews is Here

The primary purpose of the site is to report the political news of the day. Above all, as the title implies, ConservativeDemocratNews is a news organization that relays the latest Washington developments to readers across the country who care to listen. This news will be delivered specifically to an audience of conservative Democrats.
And what is truly significant is not what is reported, but who is reading it. For political stories come a dime a dozen and a dozen a day, but the conservative Democratic base is constant and an overwhelming force of good in our country. We are the group that you don't hear about in the press, the significant majority of our party that is skipped over by Republicans wishing to paint us all as dangerous radicals who would overthrow all legitimate order.
Indeed, we desire nothing of the kind. We are mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts. We are men and women who love our Lord Jesus Christ with all our heart, who would die to protect our children, who are fiercely devoted to our spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, and significant others. We are good, kind, hardworking, and honest people. We are Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Barbara Boxer. We are disgusted by the disenfranchisement of our fellow citizens, horrified at an administration that lies to its people, and deeply saddened by a democratic system that has been unspeakably violated in two highly questionable elections.
We do not want to abolish marriage, legalize public prostitution, kill babies, advocate treason, or institute communism, despite Republican claims to the contrary. We cherish the home and the family as much as we cherish protecting the environment, maintaining Congressional and executive ethics, and making sure that not one American soldier ever has to die in vain.
We are the massive bulk, the rock of the Democratic party. We wring our hands as we watch daily reports of boys as young as eighteen being brutally murdered in a faraway desert, for no other reason than so Halliburton executives can take home a bigger paycheck. We fight valliantly to protect our planet against indutrialized encroachments against it, so that our children and grandchildren might have a safe and healthy Earth on which to live, that they might be able to breathe in good country air and watch the sun set over a western horizon. We fume when we hear Republicans talk about the, "godless party," while extolling their own moral values. We go to church and pray for our loved ones, who, because they are stricken with Alzheimer's, can no longer recognize us. We hope that one day stem cell research will be able to save them, to restore what's been so tragically lost.
And we wish, every single day, that our country may be delievered safely through the tumultuous times that it now sees. The Clinton years now seem like a faraway dreamworld. The economy was booming, the environment was under adequate protection, social security was still a given, and terrorism was a foreign nightmare, something that never intruded on our lives.
Things have changed. We live in a different reality now, one in which the president of the United States is not the legitimately elected leader of the people, one in which nothing is certain and everything seems to be in an awful, terrible mess. We love our soldiers. We want them to come home. During these troubles, we lean heavily on God and on our Christian faith. It is our love of America, our love of God, our love of our neighbors, and our love of the family members with whom we sit down to dinner every night that has facilitated the creation of this site. The life and the liberty that we hold so dear is slipping. An immoral, frightening group of men have succeeded in transforming us, in the public eye, into traitorous atheists. Because of this, many feel alienated from the Democratic Party. But we are still here, the same as we always were. People have just had a hard time seeing our true side. Well, this is it. This is reality, this is the actual Democratic party, not what the Republicans in power have told you about. So read on, step into this world. Whether you're a Democrat, a Republican, black, white, Hispanic, or Asian, maybe you'll see that we're a lot more alike than you ever would have thought.

"We are Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Barbara Boxer":

OK. I guess your definition of "conservative" isn't the same as mine.

Nice font on your blog, though.

Just so you know, the distinguished Senator Clinton wants to dramatically reduce the number of abortions in this country, a stance that she has taken since 1999, not just recently so as to prepare for the 2008 Election (in which she will hopefully be chosen president).
