A Clear Direction After Election Day

Written by Angela Winters

Like everyone else, I was confused byrepparttar vast contradictions ofrepparttar 125941 exit polls andrepparttar 125942 actual results of this election. If I wererepparttar 125943 news stations, I would want my money back. For allrepparttar 125944 excitement, waiting and tension, somehow I fell asleep at 10:30. When I woke up at midnight, I was like "Oh hell, here we go." Then, this morning I felt a little better about it. I don't think this will drag out for another couple of months.

My sympathies to those who worked so hard for Kerry. They really did, but I thinkrepparttar 125945 reality is thatrepparttar 125946 country is going in a clear direction. I was surprised, but it's pretty much in plain view. America is moving torepparttar 125947 right. The White House, The Senate, The House and pretty soon, The Supreme Court is steering us inrepparttar 125948 direction of conservative values. Well, all that except for fiscal conservatism which in my opinion isrepparttar 125949 best aspect of conservativism. Bush's spending is a mess and I'm not talking aboutrepparttar 125950 war.

Ifrepparttar 125951 Democrats are going

Democrats - Where to now?

Written by Gary R. Hess

The presidential election just passed and as everyone knows by now George W. will be spending another 4 years in White House as Commander of Chief ofrepparttar world. Err America. Not only that,repparttar 125940 Republicans gained seats in bothrepparttar 125941 House and Senate.

I have been thinking about this ever sincerepparttar 125942 election ended, but where exactly doesrepparttar 125943 Democratic Party go now? The Republicans went through a major change starting in 1964 to Present day making great strides, but what arerepparttar 125944 Democrats going to do about this recent trend of thinking amongstrepparttar 125945 American people?

One suggestion is thatrepparttar 125946 Democrats start broadeningrepparttar 125947 spectrum a little more and start pulling in more religious rural users by using "moral values" or at least touching lightly onrepparttar 125948 subject. As most liberal Democrats will agree, this is not something we as a party want to go through, it might help out more withrepparttar 125949 right wing, but definitely notrepparttar 125950 left.

Other suggestions include droppingrepparttar 125951 Gun Control agenda or simply start using more affective advertising attackingrepparttar 125952 other side.

I however believe one of these two should take place: 1) Makerepparttar 125953 party more liberals. This would help out onrepparttar 125954 libertarian vote as well asrepparttar 125955 more leftist groups like socialists andrepparttar 125956 Green party. Asrepparttar 125957 youth of America gets olderrepparttar 125958 Democratic Party needs to expand to include their views. The voting turnout was not as great as anticipated for this demographic, but ifrepparttar 125959 Democrats want to compete inrepparttar 125960 New Age they must start preparing now. 2) Less bashing, more conceitedness. Many will agree that Kerry spent too much time talking about why Bush was not meant to be President ofrepparttar 125961 United States, but what he didn't do very well was explain his views and what he will do to be a better president. Time and time again when asked why didn't you vote,repparttar 125962 response has been "I don't like Bush, but I don't know Kerry's views."
