9.11 investigation

My Resignation from the Democratic Party

The United States has effectively become a military dictatorship with a mere window dressing of democracy. This is unacceptable to myself and to the immortal soul of the Constitution of the United States of America.
My Resignation from the Democratic Party

An Open Letter to the Democratic Party

To my beloved Democratic Party,

It is with the deepest sadness that I am communicating today. After the watching the more conservative elements of our party shoot down platform positions that would have single handedly won election 2000 for us and to watch as these same elements mishandled the vote count in Florida, then not crying from the roof tops for the impeachment of the five supreme court justices for committing the highest criminal act that a democracy could suffer and at present allowing this criminal conspiracy in the White House to dupe us into their OIL PIPELINE WAR in Afghanistan by allowing the terrorists to attack our nation after being fully warned prior to the 9/11 attacks from a wide variety of reliable sources, I have no choice but to resign from all of my activities within the Democratic Party.

I can not campaign for politicians, that will not, at a maximum risk their careers to stand up against the criminals that have completely removed what remaining credibility we had as a nation from the minds of the entire world inside and outside America's borders. In reality, we no longer live within an effective democracy and can no longer say that the Constitution of the United States is being fulfilled as a living and breathing document. It has been mortally wounded and lay on the emergency table of democracy in front you, for you to save, or to allow to pass into oblivion.

The United States has effectively become a military dictatorship with a mere window dressing of democracy. This is unacceptable to myself and to the immortal soul of the Constitution of the United States of America.

It is my hope that the elected leaders of the Democratic Party can find the courage to rise up against the opinion polls and draw myself and the vast majority of the American people that do not and will not participate in the Democratic process back into the great arms of a Democracy by putting up a spirited fight to save the life of the Constitution of the United States of America.

My journey with the Democratic Party began in 1992 with full time campaigning for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, to 1994 for Senator Ted Kennedy, to 1996 for Senator John Kerry and again for Bill And Al, to 1998 for Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger's bid for Governor, to Hillary Clinton's run for the Senator from New York in 2000 and to Senator John Kerry's reelection in 2002. I have contributed significant funds to democratic party candidates considering my station in life and feel I have created a political legacy for the children I have raised here in America. I do not regret for one moment my participation in the Democratic Party but what do I tell my children, now that they are grown adults, when I attempt to explain my political party's response to the blatant abuses of the illegitimate government of George W. Bush. I thank you all for the years of political kinship that I will always hold close to my heart.


With the Utmost Respect

Lloyd James Hart

I can't personally believe that exiting from the mainstream is the best long term idea. The only hope for defeating right wing initiatives is the strength of the Democratic party right now. It is our best hope to keep things from going too far in the wrong direction for right now.

Ah, the good old schoolyard trick of answering a criticism with an accusation. You did not defend the blowhard post in any way. I find it interesting that left wing liberals who quit the Democratic Party out of 'independence' all have the same stock complaints that read as if they were written by a hippie with a 6th grade education. Most of the complaints in Lloyd's letter are false or misguided. Besides, what is the point of being involved in the political process from the fringe, where no one will take you seriously? Do you think that a Green Party candidate will ever be elected in the USA? Keep smoking that reefer if you do, its never gonna happen. 1% of popular support will never constitiute a majority in any situation. And while we are at it, why is the left complaining about the war in Afghanistan at the same time they complain about democracy and action? This war IS democracy in action, as well over 80% of Americans support it.
