Does RI need more Democrats? Answer: NOOO!

Ask any liberal in the state the following question: Do we need more Democrats in office? Their answer will undoubtedly be a resounding 'yes!'. But, did you know that the General Assembly has been dominated by Democrats for decades. DECADES! Right now in the House, there are 60 Democrats and 15 Republicans. That's a 4 to 1 ratio. You want more money for education? Thought the Dems were the socially progressive party? You want your property tax reduced? Thought the Dems were for 'working families' and 'small businesses'? Rhode Island, we have believed a lie. We have believed that progressives only reside with people that have capital D's next to their names. Sadly take a look at some of the scandals at the State House the last few years, and you'll see how wrong we truly have been. The spin doctors will tell you about our Republican Governer. Yet, last time I checked a united General Assembly had more than the 66% required to overturn a veto. Remember the casino vote last year? The problem is the monopoly Democrats have at the State House. Absolute power corrupts absolutely! As Rhode Islanders, we need to wake up to the fact that our representatives have failed to address our concerns. And we've failed to hold them accountable. It's time for that to change.

Most true liberals will say that we need more Greens in office, not Democrats or Republicans.

For the most part, the Democratic and Republican parties are more concerned with special interest money than they are with people.

I suppose most true liberals would appreciate liberals associated with any party, as long as they stay true to their ideals.

in response to alex...

how is the Republican Party concerned with special interest money? The RIGOP recieved only $12,500 in PAC's and Unions in 2004. Between Billy Murphy and Gordon Fox, they brought in over $100,000!!!

(I got the #'s from their campaign finance reports.)
