I left the democratic party today and registered in the Oregon Progessive Party. I encourage anyone in the state to also join the OPP. They need to get only about 600 more members by August to maintain their minor party status to appear on ballots.
It probably isn't a surprise to anyone that my frustration with Obama and the democrats have reached this level but what REALLY pushed me over the top is the plethora of douchebags telling the liberals in the democratic party to sit down, shut up and quit our bitching.
After 8 years of having to listen to that crap while the republicans were in charge when we rightly complained about everything from the loss of civil liberties to the economy to the war in Iraq I have ZERO patience to hear that same bullshit coming from my "friends."
Progressives/ liberals have been right time after time and yet we're still expected to sit quietly at the back of the bus. Not gonna happen anymore.
The only thing I'm looking forward to these next few years in terms of politics will be listening to these democratic moderates wail as the republicans they claim we should be working with to forge some sort of grand compromise for the country fabricate a reason to impeach president Obama and move on same.
