This is the Second in a series of articles about the reason I am voting Democrat this year. My first article seemed to rock the boat a little. I didn't for a minute believe that anyone with a conscience could not see the points I have been trying to make. I was portrayed as a person that didn't know what end was up in the political spectrum. Well I do. I have probably tried, as much as anyone, to change the political direction of this country. Sometimes I feel that no matter what I propose, there will always be somebody telling me just how wrong I am. I don't care. I know how far the United States has shifted to the right. I also know that the Democrats are financed by and large, by the same people that finance the Republicans, only less is given to them by corporate America. Unions make up the difference. This is precisely why I am writing these articles. I want people to realize and understand just how important it is that we stop the right wing branch of the Republican party. The only way I can see that happening, is to vote for the Democrats in 2006, as unappealing as that may be to some people, including myself. To protest and refuse to vote, only helps the right. Republicans might not do anything right, but they vote. That is why they have had the Congress and the Senate since 1994. That is one reason why this world is like it is.
