A Liberal Marines Progressive Perspective

Marines are defenders of the republic and the Constitution. That is our oath, that is our purpose, that is our calling. Many are Democrats. This is the journal of one such Marine. This leatherneck's progressive perspective is as follows...

Read "War Is A Racket" by 2-time Medal of Honor recipient Maj.Gen.S.D.Butler, plus Lewis B. Puller, Jr.'s "Fortunate Son" and maybe then you'll understand. Semper Fi!

"Big Dog" Glory Days, A Party's Resurrection and Upcoming Elections: We Can Win Again! Posted by Picasa
Morning to all aboard the blog. So much has gone on and is going on. Tom DeLay indicted (woo-hoo!), Republican-led government's anemic response to Katrina and the ensuing debacle, GWB's numbers plunging in the polls or (at least) lingering in the political danger-zone, Republican Party knocked back on their heels and reeling, President Carter sounding-off at American University (www.american.edu) and saying that "(quote) the nation failed abysmally in 2000" and that Al Gore was the actual winner of the 2000 election, Senate Majority Leader Frist underfire and under the SEC's microscope for possible insider-training/financial malfeasance, GOP leaders and strategists scrambling to pull out of what can only be described as a political nose-dive, etc, etc, etc. Sorry if I seem too overjoyed over the GOP's political problems, but the GOP is "hazardous to the Republic's health" and as soon as they are swept from the main bastions of politcal power (let's hope sooner, than later) the better it will be for our country. If this momentum continues, I don't think it's in any way hyperbolic to say that the upcoming elections of 2006/2008 will be the Democrats to lose...it seems like the GOP has reached "terminal blotation", "jumped the shark" and heading towards self-destruction. Of course, we can't count the GOP out if we are true students of history (both political and military...there are just too many examples of political and martial entities being counted out, only to come back with a vengeance and claim victory, i.e., Union forces floundering from loss to loss pre-1863 only to finally get their stuff together around mid-late 1863 and go on and defeat Confederate forces in 1865 and Richard Nixon's punishing defeats in the 1960 Presidential elections and 1962 California Gubernatorial election only to go on and win the American Presidency in 1968 ). All I'm saying is it seems as though the political trajectory is changing, the worm is turning and things are looking better for Democrats/Liberals/Progressives in the good ol' United States of America! "Republican-fatigue" has either set-in or is setting-in, either way now is the time to advance and go on the offensive...and I'm not just talking about the political big wigs...all Democrats, all Progressives, all Liberals must do their part (even if it's only rhetorical/verbal) to advance the cause! Take care all and Semper Fidelis
