Step-by-step how to win elections for Democrats

I would like to share with you what we have used here in Lee County, NC and have not lost a election the past three election cycles. Please share with others. Blue Sample Ballot Campaign. Blue Sample Ballots are better that yard signs, handouts, fliers or ads since the voters have the information in front of them when they walk into vote.

A Message to all Cumberland County Democrats from Dennis Gregg, Chair

Dear fellow Democrats,

There is little to celebrate from the August 7th election. Only one Democrat won a contested race, Ron Thurman, and that was because his opponent was so ill-equipped that even Republican leaders campaigned against him. In contest after contest, more experienced, better qualified Democratic candidates with proven track records were passed over in favor of men with "R" after their name. In the non-partisan county commission and school board races better decisions…

TN Democrats Embarrased by National News--Again

Here is part of what USA Today is reporting regarding the winner of the Democratic primary race for governor:

". . . Charlie Brown has reported raising no money for his campaign, and he has not responded to interview requests.

The only sign of a campaign has been a Facebook page on which his first name is misspelled. That page had 29 likes before Wednesday evening, as well as a few unanswered questions from voters. Its dominant feature is a profile photo of him proudly…

GOP House pushes lawsuit against Obama

Machiavelli is alive and well in the Republican Party.

 

Where the ascendent Democrats in the Congress should have taken matters seriously in 2009, they would have moved to press for war crimes proceedings against George W. Bush. During his Presidency, George W. issued a great deal more executive orders than Obama has, and for issues bearing on personal liberties and freedoms.  It is amazing the GOP blocked any sort of investigation into Katrina failings, and promised (ha ha)…

What? You aren't going to vote!

Hey, neighbor. So, you are fed up with the goings-on in Washington DC, and you don’t think you will ever bother to vote again. Or, you don’t want to vote anymore because there is one particular issue that you have strong feelings about and believe the Federal government is doing you wrong. Seriously?

Let me ask you this. What do you think Washington DC has to do with the local, district, county and state officials and public servants who actually have an effect on your state, your…

The Baseball Pitching Machine

In the daily course of conversation you can often hear someone say "I am just busy with life". I doubt that few of us cannot identify with what we perceive to be the message behind the statement. Life often lives her own life at a pace that can be difficult to keep up. In making life it's own entity we can quickly put together a list of items she seems to throw at us from every direction. I am also confident that many of us would describe life's ability to "throw out her stuff" as if it is… Continue

Republican Disrespect

As I look at the top of this page, I see the words "Tennessee Democratic Party. " It does my heart good to see that we Democrats still consider the name of our party to be that rather than "Tennessee DEMOCRAT Party." Everytime I hear one of the folks on the other side of the room refer to us as the Democrat Party, it makes me wince.

 

Some of my African-American friends say that one of the most disrespectful things another person can do is "call you out of your name." Every…
