Ultimately, all the hatred shown by the FAR left can be summarized in one word. Jealousy. All through out the Clinton years, democrats debated Republicans and republicans debated democrats. There were heated debates over certain topics but not to the point of hatred. But ever since the midterms in 1994, when the Republicans took control of the House, the democrats began to become unhinged. The animosity grew throughout the 90's when more and more Republicans began getting elected. It grew ever more spiteful in 2000 when they lost the Presidential election and were now down 2 to 1 (House, Senate, White House). Finally in 2002, when the Republicans took control of all 3, thats when the hinges came off and the true lunacy showed itself. 2002 marked the time that the unification over 9/11 had ended and partisan politics returned with a bloodlust on the Democratic side. Ever since then, no lie was too big, no false accusation too outlandish, no policy of the Republican Party was the right one. Bush became the Anti-Christ in that year and thus began the slow spiral into hell for our country if you were to listen to the Democratic Rhetoric. If i were a party where JFK and FDR were the heroes, I'd be appaled by the nature of the Party today. I'd be ashamed to have leaders such as the Clintons, Teddy Kennedy, and John Kerry running my party and speaking for my voice. I know there are alot of democrats out there who dont buy into the hate bush mantra and feel alienated because their party has been hijacked by the radicals. I just hope the follow their heads and not their hearts this november.
