Why I am Switching to the Democrat Party (Inspired By Boasso)

May 12, 2007

It’s been hard for me to write lately, but not because of a lack of inspiration. I have been extremely inspired by Walter Boasso, the Demo switched Repub switched Demo. Like Walter Boasso who would schedule as guest speaker to Republican organizations only to back out at the last second, I too, feel that it is very inappropriate to continue pushing a conservative agenda while the issue isn’t settled whether I’d be a Republican or a Democrat.

But the time has come for me to let the public know that I have finally reached a decision and to explain that decision to the readers of Louisiana Conservative Dot Com. I am indeed, planning on switching parties. I have every intention of registering as a Democrat. It would not be fair to my readers for me to stand so strongly for conservative issues when it does not represent what I stand for.

I am still the same person I was yesterday and the day before, or last weekend, or the month before. I am still who I am, just with changes to reflect who I am when you first meet me. Other than these changes everything else is still the same, the brain is the same brain, the heart is the same heart, I did not have any organ transplants. I am still the same person.

So let me explain to you why I have ultimately decided to switch to the Democrat party. When you stop to think about it, it’s a very easy decision to make. It’s a very easy decision for any of us to make, and I’d like to encourage you to think about how easy it would be for you to switch to the Democrat party as well.

It’s much easier because I can stand for whatever I want to stand for and call it compassion. It’s easy because I can accuse people who are against “illegal immigration” as being hypocrites and anti-immigrant. I can just lump them into a single category and call them racist. It doesn’t matter what they say, because I care and they don’t.

I can hate Christians, doing everything I can to keep them out of the process, but feel very warm and caring towards a religion, in which people often tie bombs to theirselves and kill everybody who disagrees with them. Who cares if radical Muslims kill innocent people on the other side planet and who want to kill Americans for being infidels when we have Christians here who want to force people to read the Ten Commandments? Do you realize that if people read the Ten Commandments, they might actually obey them? If people obey the Ten Commandments, they might stop murdering, and if they stop murdering, there will be less executions, and if that happens, I’d have one more reason to get a job and one less reason to run around protesting. I like Tookie Williams, he wrote a children’s book. He likes telling little kids stories, in fact, I’ll bet he even read a story to those two kids before he murdered them.

Why should we try to stop Islamo-fascist from killing us? Afterall, when you stop to think about it, they are just like you and me, except with bombs tied to them and reason missing from their brains. I mean what have Muslim terrorists ever done to America? So you say 9-11? Well that really isn’t true because it was our fault for electing George Bush and we all know Bush lied, that it was really a conspiracy. Truth is, the towers never even fell. They still exist, but Bush moved the Towers to a special location because he wanted the American people to support him so he can get revenge for his daddy. George Bush gave the towers to England as payment for their support in the war and the Towers are underneath ‘Downing Street’. It’s easy to bury you head in the sand and say it was all just an illusion.

I want to say 3,000 soldier deaths is the equivolent of the 58,000 lives we lost in Vietnam. It’s the same thing. Maybe next time we get into a war, we’ll only lose ten lives before we quit. Quitting is easy. Like many of you, I want to go to war, support my country as we launch an attack onto another country, but once it starts getting bloody, I want to quit. I want to follow public opinion, worry about what other people think about me, and no matter what, always act like only my position is the only way to be compassionate. Why should we kill people just because they are going to kill us? After all, it’s not nearly as awful as those right wing christian extremist who want to take away a woman’s right to choose.

I want to put my personal interests above my country’s interests. That’s what Patriotism is. Patriotism is when a politicians thinks gaining seats in congress for his political party is more important than the well being of his country. Why would anybody think Patriotism is putting your country ahead of your own personal interests? That’s just silly to say that because if that were the case, then I’d say that Patriotism has long left this country. You’d be hard pressed to find ten congressmen out of over 500 who put this country ahead of their own political interests, and that’s not including our state officials.

I have an American flag in my home, but switching parties probably means I’m going to have to get rid of it. Like many of you had to do after 9-11, if, well when my country gets attacked again, I want to have to run out to Wal-mart and buy a flag so I can wave it around and show how ‘Patriotic’ I am. Oh, that’s right, I can’t shop at Wal-mart anymore, that would be unpatriotic. I suppose I’ll have to complain about the practices of Wal-mart, such as giving elderly people a low paying job, even though the company I work for won’t even give elderly people a job. Truth is, the real reason I must hate Wal-mart is because they donate to the Republican party and how dare they not give all their money to the Democrat party?

It’s easy to switch to the Democrat party because I want to live forever. I want to live forever and I want you to pick up the expenses of my healthcare. Why should I have to die when you have plenty of money in your pocket to pay for my doctors? Why should I live in fear of anything? I want to support every single new law that comes out, especially if I can call myself compassionate while looking out for my best interests. I want to prohibit smoking in every place, even in your own home. I want to make guns illegal. I want to accuse hunters of wanting to go hunting with an AK-47. Why do you even need a gun with real bullets to go hunting? You can go in the backyard and kill pigeons with a BB gun, it’s just as exciting and shooting deer with a bazooka.

I want to hate the rich, because it’s easy to blame them for my poverty, even though many of them came from poverty. At the same time, I want to idolize rich guys who make all the money in their country and keep everybody else poor. I want to hate George Bush for being for the rich, and for being a dictator, while praising Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro who are the rich guys who keeps an entire country in poverty and tramples on the freedoms of the people. That too me is real democracy from now own, because I am a Democrat.

I want to be narcissistic enough to believe I am God-like, that I have the power to destroy the planet, thus have the power to save the planet. I want to worship people like Al Gore, who preach to the rest of us how we ought to live, while doing 20 times more to ‘destroy’ the planet than the average Joe. I like lecturing people, telling them to use safe lightbulbs that contain mercury, telling them to flush their toilets once a week, and to use only one sheet of toilet paper except with those occassional ‘messy situations’. I’m better than you now, so do what I say, not as I do.

I want to vote Democrat because it’s easier than getting a job. I want to sit at home everyday, watching Oprah Winfrey, Jerry Springer, and Montel Williams and collect a welfare check. I want to tell people I am a ‘Professional Daytime Talkshow Analyst’ because it’s a compassionate term. I want to take the easy way out, and blame you Republicans because I can’t find a job.

I don’t want my country helping oil companies get rich by allowing them to drill for oil anywhere. Not in Anwar, not in the gulf, not anywhere I say, I say. If we did that, than wouldn’t the supply only become more, thus driving down the price of gasoline? If we did that, then how can I blame George Bush for the high price of gasoline? And how would my new hero, Hugo Chavez, get richer and keep the people of Venezuela poor if the price of gas decreased?

I want government to solve every single one of my problems, because my problems aren’t because of my lifestyle choices, but because life is unfair. Would we be any less of a free country if government passed more and more laws? I say no. Government has a duty, not to protect our freedom, but to protect us from dying. If I make a mistake, why should I learn from it? Government should make laws to prevent you from making stupid decisions that affect my life, but it shouldn’t keep me from making stupid decisions that affect your life. For example, if I choose to stay home and smoke marijuana all day long, and make children with several different women, why should you judge me? You just need to keep your mouth shut and pay for my lifestyle choices because you have the money to pay for it. Don’t lecture me with ‘if you can’t feed em, don’t breed em’. Just pay and keep your mouth shut because I am now a Democrat. That’s what government ought to do, make you pay for my choices and stay out of my life, but to make sure you’re doing exactly what I think you ought to do.

Government ought to tell businesses how much you have to pay me, how many days I should get off, how many days off that you have to pay me for, what you can sell and when you can sell it. Government ought to regulate how you run your business and make sure that you are taking care of my needs too.

I also can enjoy sex now that I am a Democrat. Yes, you can expect me to start talking about sex. I can make judgements about people concerning sex now. As a Democrat, it’s my duty to judge Republicans because of sex. You see, I can tell people to wear condoms, love homosexuals, encourage people to ‘explore their sexuality’ and to criticize you self righteous Republicans who want to stick your nose into my bedroom. I will call myself ‘open-minded’ and run around acting like I discovered sex yesterday. I guess this means I have too start watching a lot more porn, does that mean I’d be sticking my nose into their bedrooms? Because I do this, I can be completely appalled when I stick my nose into other people’s bedroom and find out that somebody molested a child.

There are some more benefits to switching to the Democrat party. I get to talk about how much I am for love, freedom of speech, and self righteous people. At the same time I get to hate George Bush and Republicans, try to silence people I disagree with like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, even people that I normally would agree with like Don Imus. The best part about this, is that I get to do all this because I am compassionate, I care, I am intellectual, I am always right. I am perfect, and because I am perfect, the world cannot be perfect until everybody agrees with me. In the words of another one of my new found heros- John Lennon, “Maybe someday you will join us, and the world will be as one.” You see, we’re perfect, we don’t need to change. You have to change and then the world will be good.

CHEAP DATE.(Special Sections)

The Santa Fe New Mexican (Santa Fe, NM) October 2, 2004 Byline: YASMIN KHAN We know you’re looking for a cheap and easy date. Some of you might take one or the other – beggars can’t be choosers. To start you off on the cheap side, here’s a list of budget date ideas for Santa Fe. These ideas combined with your sparkling personality hopefully won’t reveal your tight pockets to your easy date. If you’re like me and hate dating, these ideas can come in handy when you are trying to find something to do by yourself. Again.

Free-$10 – OK, maybe you shouldn’t be dating if this is your budget, but if you find yourself corralled into a night (or day) out you can try:

Free museum days – Museum of International Folk Art, on Sundays; Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, on Fridays from 5-8 p.m. Center for Contemporary Arts, free every day.

Gallery browsing – Walk up and down Canyon Road and give your comment on every gallery. If you go on a weekend, you can get really trashed with all the free booze they hand out in some venues. I think it helps people like the art better.

Hot Springs – I love the hot springs, but in recent years they have been a bit of a crap shoot. Sometimes it can be a romantic, stress-relieving day full of hiking and wonderful views. Other times you end up soaking next to some slimy guy who’s still partying from last night. By himself. With no pants on.

Tiny’s – No cover and a fun bar to hang out at and listen to music. Dark, with a little dance floor. This is where the $10 comes in, you should buy at least one drink for your date. Or go out with a recovering alcoholic and you can score free sodas by telling the bartend that you’re both designated drivers.

Food – Even I can’t think of anywhere to get food this cheap unless you make something at home and have a picnic at the river. Make it cute with a little tablecloth and some candles and some cheap red wine and a little piece of brie. Wear a beret.

$15-$30 – When you start spending ANY cash on a date, you need to be careful that “the other,” doesn’t see it as a free-for-all drink fest, and suddenly you run out of cash. Hopefully you won’t be on a date with that kind of person, but that’s why it’s a date and not your wedding. Talk more, drink less, eat slower. Sound interesting so they stop and listen instead of gorging on their food… this web site cheap date ideas

Movie Tickets at CCA – $8 general and $6 for students. That student ID you have really comes in handy. Mine doesn’t have a date on it, so I am the proverbial professional student.

The Opera – I got some $10 standing-room-only tickets for Simon Boccanegra, a dark Italian opera. We got there a few minutes late, so they let us sit in the mezzanine. I found out later that the seats we hopped into were around $100 a piece. The opera is really “smart,” and everyone wants to go at least once in their life. Plan on eating first, the Tesuque Market is a cute place to have some beer and good food and is right down the road.

India Palace – For lunch it’s around $9, and it shows how exotic and adventurous you are. Don’t whine about hot food.

Del Charro – Cheap food late at night. Try the poblano or the salmon wrap, each around $5. The fireplace is romantic (especially if you pile into one of those leather chairs together).

El Tosoro – This is the best place to eat in Santa Fe and everything is under $10. In Sanbusco center, it is clean, healthy, fresh El Salvardorian food. Get the platanos fritos (fried plantains). The tuna tacos rock too.

The Teahouse – Really nice and mellow inside and out, with a ton of tea to chose from, and the food is good too. I went there with a friend and had too much tea and then was twitching so bad I couldn’t get the fork to my mouth so I had to eat my salad with my hands. Don’t do that.

Ten Thousand Waves – Locals day at The Waves (weekdays only) is cheaper than the weekends. Great place to stop after a hard day on the slopes, (which by the way, is way out of the price range of this category and not even in the next). t’s romantic and a step up from the hot springs. The water here is better than the water in the natural springs, especially if its been marinating that party guy with the Budweiser and no pants.

$30-$50 – I don’t really think $50 is a cheap date, but we are in Santa Fe, where $50 is often used to wipe your nose. I couldn’t think of too many un-cheap places to go because I am so damn cheap myself. I also hate dating so I never stumble upon anything really pricey and creative that someone else would take me to. No, I’m not bitter. here cheap date ideas

The Lensic – The Lensic has some really cool performances like Taj Mahal, and flamenco guitar, and then it fills up with Christmas crap. It is worth checking out though, because if you’re a student, tickets are half price.

Ojo Caliente – This is by far one of my favorite places to be in New Mexico. If you could drink wine, eat habanero potato chips and have sex while you are soaking in the mineral springs (which make your skin baby soft), it would top the list. The prices are going up, but since it is one of the only places people who live around there can work, I don’t mind paying extra when I have it. It now costs $17 for all day, and you can stay until 10 p.m.

The restaurant there is really good, the salads are great, but now you have to put something on over your bathing suit. Even though I liked dripping around in there, I see their point. You can also camp out there and hike. I love covering myeslf in the mud and drying in the sun.

The only thing is all the people who go there and act stupid and loud. “Oh take a picture! Little Jennie will never believe I covered myself in mud like a little kid!” or “Oh my god, you just put mud all over your body! I can’t believe I’m doing this. Tee hee… Go get the camera.” I have to resist throwing mud at their blonde bouffant after they’ve gotten dressed and are ready to go. Now take a picture.

Your arguments are very amusing. It's almost as if you are poking fun at the Democrats, right? Organize your thoughts, no matter how few, next time you think about making a logical proposal. I'm not even going to waste my time arguing with such childish propositions.

The problem is no democrat ever admits to anything.So what do you say to the ACLU sues Tangipahoa again, this time over bibles in school. Must be that this left wing democrat group loves God so much they want to keep him to theirselfs.

Perhaps you can explain what about this is satirical. It's sarcasm, obviously, but satire? Jonathan Swift and Mark Twain aren't exactly looking over their shoulders. I suspect what makes this satisfying to some conservatives is that this is what they truly, in their hearts, need to believe this is what Democrats are like. I am a Democrat, and I don't know a single person who hates Christians, doesn't care about terrorism, who wants government to solve their problems, who wants to make guns illegal, who doesn't want to work, or who would agree with the army of straw men you've lined up here. These are talking points straight from the Sean Hannity Show, and little more.

As a libertarian atheist..(I know, I know, worst kind right? I must have absouloutly no morals whatsoever..) whom also served in the 82nd Airborne as a Ranger qualified paratrooper in the current theater, I have to say I'm rather ashamed of the American public. Here we are, fighting over the definition of a political party. I am assuming that eventually everyone will figure out that no politician honestly gives a fart about your well being or anyone elses for that matter save for a select few. To immediatly classify the democratic party as being Communist shows the ignorance of the "Red Scare". Just as easily, the Republican Party could be shown to be like the Fascist movement that dominated Europe. Our government needs to be carefully watched because it is controlled by other Americans. The only people who make it that far into politics are the ones who are slimy enough to get that far. Most of the decent, self respecting, Americans wind up getting pushed down because they aren't willing to over step the moral boundaries. Prominent members in both parties have had horrible scandals from drugs, lies, marital affairs and the like. Both parties have had members involved in corruption. Lets just look at Bush and Clinton...Both of those men scare me...To imply that someone has no work ethic simply because of their political affiliation is nonsense and ignorance. Did you know that alot of these worthless Democrats are currently fighting for our country? That when faced with the hatred of the enemy that regardless of religion or political preference they band together like brothers to overcome the opposing force? I find it is usually that those who do not, or will not do anything will be the loudest voice. When I hear Pulosi yammering or Coulter spewing out more attention grabbing statements it just makes me sigh and shrug my head, and then check to make sure my rifle is clean and in top condition so that when I go back out into the field I can actually DO something. So really, when it comes down to it, Republicans are no better than Democrats as far as "caring for their fellow Americans" go, and you really should stop making general statements as you are because your ignorance is quite clearly displayed. Thank you all for your time. RLTW..ATW.

Well done, indeed. I notice that some folks commenting here are classic... well, you know. Either they don't want to read more than two sentences, can't think of anything intelligent to answer with and stoop to personal attacks (re: idiot), or make the judgment for everyone as to whether it was funny or not. Personally, I'm a devout ME. And personally, I enjoyed it.

I WAS a democrat. And man life is better. I don't complain all the time. I take pride in what I do. Meaning I don't need a group to pat my back and say good job. Even if I did a lousy job. The list goes on and on... and as a christian.. I feel better about my self because I don't lie to myself anymore. Nothing but the good life now. Great post as usual Jeff. Keep'em coming.

I'm a Democrat and I don't hate Christians; to do so, I'd have to hate myself. My father is a deacon in the Episcopal church. My in-laws have been Episcopal all their lives. My kids come, in short, from three generations of Democratic Christians. I don't tell Republicans that they aren't Christians, either.

"Oh I see its a joke. I was about to cancel you off my myspace. Lol." Is that really how shallow you conservatives think? Apparently, your "friend" here is only friends with your ideology, not your psyche. Consider who your real friends are, my son. By the way, your satire was indeed brilliant and a refreshing break from the everyday tripe. Good job.

Jeff just put what is best for louisiana first in your heart.If you do that it will make the rest fall in place.We have to try to change louisiana before we can be effective in the rest of the country. I myself tend to vote for the person not the party and thats why i will end up voting for Bobby Jindal for governor but will keep voting for Kip Holden as Mayor of baton rouge. We lost the steel mill here because Alabama Governor Bob Riley impressed ThyssenKrupp AG officials so much that they couldn't say no to Alabama.We lost a car company and a steel mill this past year and our brightest minds are having to leave this state for lack of decent jobs or future for their families.We need to change the way we do things in louisiana because this good old boy system we seem to keep,has put us at the bottom of the barrel and has the rest of the country laughing at us. What ever you decide i hope you continue writing because i have enjoyed your work very much.

Ya'know, I'd sure be tempted to be a Damnocrat again today if I were back in College (and 40 years younger). Kids today have the absolute greatest opportunity to raise a little hell(o) and make a real dent in society. Back in the Good Old 1960's, we kicked up a real fuss over the establishment and --I know some say we brought it to it's knees-- well, it was fun. Today the Commiekrats have total control of the DNC and I'd be out jumping up and down trying to take it all back and kick 'em back behind the woodwork and into the shadows and closets where they crawled out of. Youth IS wasted on the young, it sure is! But, that's life! (Maybe all us old hippies ought to pick some fresh flowers, let our thinning hair grow long again, tie-dye some t-shirts, kick our shoes off, paint some new protest signs and do it ourselves. Beats sitting around waiting to croke!) Love Man! Cool Man Cool!

Komrad We Welcome You With Open Arms. It is a great, and high honor that you do yourself by becoming one of the New Age Demokrats, the NEO-COMs. Louisiana is a Great Socialist State, and has been for many, many years; your services to the Common Cause will, no doubt, make it a bigger and 'better' mud hole than it already is. (That is a back handed compliment. The more we can drain the capitalists by having them invest their trillions in states like Louisiana, the faster we can bring this constitutional democracy down around their ears.) Onward! Be proud! VOTE DEMOKRATIC!! Vote Early AND OFTEN on Election Days! Viva Mexico! Viva La' Revolition! Viva Osama Ben Laden! Viva Karl Marx! Viva Nancy Pelosi! Viva Ted "The Red" Kennedy! Viva Senator Reed! Viva Komrad Dean and all the Deaniacs! Viva the NAACP! Viva the NEA! Viva the AFL-CIO! Viva Hollywood! Viva Gus Hall! Viva 'em all! And as you wonderful, socialist, godless, po' little ol' hicks down South like to say: "YANKEE GO HOME!!", and "BURN BABY BURN!!" Have a beautiful day!

I have a feeling you'd be a GREAT Democrat if all you say were true. I have a feeling you'd be a G R E A T E R Democrat if all you say were a faint to get you in -in good standing- in order to start the infiltration of this once "American" party to reclaim it and make it what it should be once again. (We really do need two parties -two AMERICAN Parties.) A week or so ago you'd have to have flawless French at your disposal to communicate with Pill-Oh-Si and the Boyz, but I believe that since the French election they've gone back to High Russian or 'Peking Duck' Chinese. Whatever you decide, I just know it will be the 'Right' decision. (If you do decide to infiltrate, keep your cover, trust no one, and don't slip up by eating a piece of apple pie --it may be your last- they're kind'a funny about things like that. Know what I mean?)

Jeff, you have to be careful not to antagonize people like Sissy Willis who want to read just one line or two in order to form an opinion on isues. And the more emotional and compassionate the better. I feel your pain.

I've thought exactly the same thing many a time. What a beautiful thing the Democratic Party is. I'd just have to say I'm for a few bizarre principles, never being concerned about living them myself, and I'm set for life. Screw getting a job -- I deserve to retire at my ripe age of 24 and let the American people support me for the rest of my life.
