Democratic Party Sheds Principles for Power and Dirty Politics

The Democratic party has really changed. I can remember when the Democrats made semi-principled (although misguided) arguments about helping the disadvantaged who, the argument went, were unable to help themselves, protecting American workers and so on.

the principles have come off the arguments. Not the Democratic party is about power, about foul-mouthed insults to their enemies, and about the self appointed elites seeking enslavement of the rest of us.

It comes as not surprise that the organized crime syndicate of voter fraud known as ACORN was an unofficial arm of the Democratic party.

It comes as no surprise that the Democratic party ads this political cycle have focused on the nasty rather than issues.

It comes as no surprise that the Democratic party, being in power, is using the Internal Revenue Service as its secret police to intimidate and harass the political enemies of the Obama Administration/Democratic party. This horror show situation is well-summarized an excellent Wall Street Journal editorial. This evil strategy powerfully demonstrates the evils of mandating donor disclosure:
Democrats claim only to favor "disclosure" of donors, but their legal intimidation attempts are the best argument against disclosure. Liberals want the names of business donors made public so they can become targets of vilification with the goal of intimidating them into silence. A CEO or corporate board is likely to think twice about contributing to a campaign fund if the IRS or prosecutors might come calling. If Democrats can reduce business donations in the next three weeks, they can limit the number of GOP challengers with a chance to win and reduce Democratic Congressional losses.
I have long argued that our society would be better served by mandated secrecy in donations. Let the winner be prevented from knowing who gave them money, so they can neither reward their donor friends nor punish their donor enemies.

Our excessively intrusive and powerful IRS also argues for the Fair Tax system that is not based upon income, but upon retail sales only. We don't need a secret police in the guise of a tax collector in a free country.

Update: Dem Sleaze Campaign in Colorado. the Colorado Democrats are trying to make an issue out of Mark Buck's 2006 decision as a prosecutor to decline to prosecute a rape case that lacked evidence and that he could not win. On its facts, the case looks pretty weak as a rape case. The complaining woman got drunk and asked an ex-boyfriend to come see her. While they both agree she said, "no," the jury may well have concluded on the circumstances that it was a "no" that signaled "yes." The irrational Dems (Dumbs?) want to make a big deal of Mr. Buck's refusal to prosecute on those facts.

 Memo to the Democratic Party: sometimes it is better to defer prosecution, because time may give you new and better incriminating facts. If you prosecute prematurely and without the facts, you not only let a rapist go free, you also give him a double jeopardy defense if new incriminating facts later turn up.

Don't expect actual intelligence in nasty smears.
