Well, well! The rats are jumping ship…


The ‘progressive’ Democrats, too, are facing a sea-change of voter fury:

White voters are deserting the Party in Droves;

MS Democrat County Chair “shocked” by sudden party switch of 4 local officeholders;

Mass of Dem elected officials in Angelina County, Texas bolt to the GOP

Is the once mighty Democrat Party going Extinct?

Editors Eric Dondero and Cliff Thies have been documenting the shift away from ‘progressive’ statism and it’s effects on Party fortunes. Where the Republicans are facing a small-government Tea revolution from the grass-roots, the Democrats have no such ideological popular base upon which to grow.

Having allowed themselves to become Branded as the Party of Big Government, intrusive regulation, high taxes and economic malaise, defected Demos flock to Independent Limbo.  It is becoming more and more obvious that Democratic Party fortunes are merely a symptom of America’s renaissance.

Portrait of John Adams

By what do we mean the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the Revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it.  The Revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen years before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington.  The records of thirteen legislatures, the pamphleteers, newspapers in all the colonies, ought to be consulted during that period to ascertain the steps by which the public opinion was enlightened and informed concerning the authority of Parliament over the colonies. – John Adams to Thomas Jefferson, 1815

… pamphleteers in pajamas, no less.

America is witnessing, simultaneously, open demands for violent socialist revolution from the likes of the Left’s Frances Fox Piven while, for the first time, newly elected members of the federal Congress are discussing “roll-back”, ending the Fed, reversing existing legislation, reducing spending, cutting administrative departments and entire Agencies, sunsetting entitlements and beyond.  Interesting times, yes?

    Four Mississippi office holders defect to the right? Encouraging! I can hardly wait for the 2012 elections, however, the percolating period has allowed me to rule out several on my “short list.” I think you’ve talked about our “short lists” here??? Anyway, I guess the more time we, and “they” have, the more we learn. Linked in my morning new and views tomorrow.

    Hey Liberty Belle, I have quite the “short list” going. Not since the days after the Founding have we had so many wonderful potential candidates. Cheers!

    -Having nearly finished Stanley Kurtz’s Radical-In-Chief and found it very well-researched, I think I can say that the Socialists in the Democratic Party don’t care if the Whites leave. They’re goal has been to bring about the Socialist Revolution in America via the minorities, especially the Blacks and ‘Hispanics’.

    -Any man who approvingly quotes John Adams is a friend of mine.

    -I’m happy when elected officials defect to the GOP – cautiously happy. As long as they aren’t RINOs, I say ‘Come on in; the water’s fine’, but no more Fellow Travellers and Useful Idiots, please.
