The Democrats think they are going to a debate while the Repugnicans are going to a gang fight

I read this article this morning in the Houston Chronicle. It just reinforced my position that the Republicans will politicize anything. Even though the Houston City Council is supposedly non-partisan, the Harris County Republican Party is keeping score. This is why we need to support Democrats at the lowest levels of government.


I hate Republicans - I can't stand those Republicans


We couldn't believe our ears when we heard a group of Republicans chanting, "Hey, hey. Ho, ho. Social Security has got to go" on CNN last night. But that is what they did, outside Senator Rick Santorum's Social Security town hall meeting in Philadelphia. In the meeting, Santorum, the leading supporter of privatization in the Senate, declared that "it is time for a Republican solution to Social Security." But the Republicans gathered outside were more clear about where that plan ultimately leads. For Bush's conservative base, privatization of Social Security is just the first step toward getting rid of the program entirely.

These spontaneous chants say more about Republicans' true motives than anything George Bush has said to date. This is something every American should know about. Please take a few minutes right now to write a letter-to-the-editor explaining what happened and expressing your outrage.
