What they really believe

The Multnomah County Democrats have their platform convention coming up next month. This is where they look at the issues that they want to address. They do this by checking public opinion... and then doing the exact opposite of what Oregonians want. A sampling:

ORS 106.010 Amend the statute defining marriage to allow same sex marriages.

ORS 197.296 Repeal the requirement that urban growth boundaries be expanded.

ORS 471.030 Amend statute to insure OLCC retains control of liquor sales.

ORS 137.700 Repeal mandatory sentences

ORS 162.315 Amend statute to note that resisting a false arrest is not a crime.

ORS 163.105 Repeal the death sentence statute.

ORS 169.151 Repeal this requirement that incarcerated individuals pay rent.

Create statute to prohibit the publication of names of incarcerated individuals on the
internet.
This one would put a HUGE damper on all my efforts to find illegal aliens who have multiple drivers licenses and are registered to vote.

ORS 291.349 Repeal the "kicker".

Create legislation enacting progressive taxation on the transfer of wealth between generations, levied on those whose assets are greater than the assets of 99% of American decedents, with future adjustments in exemption levels and tax brackets tied to changes in the federal minimum wage, and an automatic 10% increase on the highest bracket in time of war. The rate structure of this tax should recognize the vast differences between inheriting 5, 50, and 500 million dollars, and implement tax rates such as 50% for estates above $5m, 60% for estates above $50m, and 65% for estates above $500m, with a minimum tax of 40%.

To their credit, they do have a few good ideas in there. But hey, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

If you don't agree with the above items then you should be voting Republican!

Daniel, I'm not in the habit of watching CNN, but I actually saw Lou Dobbs tonight bemoaning the fact that we have a serious problem with illegal imigration. He was putting down the idea that there are jobs Americans won't do. I'm sick of all the excuses used to justify these law breakers.

Gunslinger said...

The jobs Americans wont do? Like roofing? General construction? Tile setters? Librarians?

Yeah, I would hate to go to work at a job that paid me over $15 an hour. Yuck, screw that. I am going to hold out for a management position.

If you can carry Columbia and Coos County, Multnomah County then can be written off.

Thanks for reminding me that I'll never, EVER vote Democrat.

You dont have to carry Multnomah County, you just have to carry about 27% or more, then do well elsewhere.

I think that the suburbs of Portland (Washington and Clackamas counties) are the swing in an election. Portland goes for the communist, rural Oregon goes for the common sense candidate, the split is in the close-to-Portland cities.

But no, you don't need a majority of Multnomah county to win a statewide election.

"DUUUUH, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TO GAIN STATEWIDE, IF YOU CANNOT CARRY MULTNOMAH COUNTY?"

Is it constitutionally allowed for the productive citizens of the several counties to effectively divorce a parasitic county? Making it another (hopeless) state?

There's an initiative I could get behind!

AHHH...BOB, It wasn't a wisenheimer crack.

I'm more sick then Daniel is of this filth that represents(laughable at best)me.

REALITY......better check the macho at the door, and face it, the demographics of these counties are not getting friendly(IE, illegals set up by Bradbury to vote against any of us.


SO KNOCK OFF THE "DUUUUH" CRAP, and come up with more.

OK. I'm sorry. I thought you were a different anonymous.

My point is, that Multnomah county exists as a parasitic welfare state and is doomed to remain that way. Other than forcing it's succession, I see no solution.

The heart of the problem is the heart of what controls the state.

We better unite soon on the ways of finding just one city council seat, or one county council seat, or the state is lost.


I agree on the difficulty of finding a candidate, much less getting one elected... But look how SMITH VOTED TODAY on cleaning up a bloated budget....HE HAS TO GO!

The influx of illegals is at critical mass...in 2010-20 we will lose the country as Pat Bucanan said. Its a war for us in two ways..CLOSE THE F----- BORDERS IN 12 MONTHS OR LESS. WIN IN IRAQ IN 12 MONTHS, OR ITS OVER.

If you think I'm nuts, better look who surrounds you at the next stop light.
