Right now I'm thinking about my late father, a veteran of three wars. I'm thinking about the America he risked his life for. I'm thinking about the America that existed when he was alive. This evening I'm wondering where that America is. Where is my country and where did it go? As a Democratic Party activist I've had to endure the GOP calling me un-American. I"ve been called a baby killer for my pro-choice stance. I"ve been called anti-God because of my belief in separation of Church and State. I"ve been called angry because I"m a sore loser.
This evening I watched in horror as the GOP, the party that says it's with God, with a spineless Democratic Party on the sidelines watching, gut our constitution and leave us with an unelected President with power to arrest anyone he pleases with authorization to torture at will and leave incarcirated for as long as he wishes without due process. This isn't my country. This is a dictatorship.
I post this upside down flag - a signal of distress- to a moribound and hapless Democratic Party. I'm asking them to save us. Please. There is no one else left to turn to. There is no one else to call to for help. I'm asking the party to take stock and heal thy self. Please, before it's to late.
And to Senator Bill Nelson who voted for this unconscionable act: I hope you roast in hell. You just spat on my late father's grave and the service of my brother to his country. With this vote you just spat on the service of anyone who will chose service to their country. You've authorized other countries to torture if they are captured because we now do the same. A pox on you Senator. I' won't be voting for you in November. I can't vote for Katherine Harris either. Neither one of you deserve my vote.
