About Doris Sullivan
Long-time activist for civil rights, women’s rights, 99%, unions, LGBT, #StopRush Feminist Slut, AARP, Hillary 2016, VETS! Left Democratic Party after what I saw as its 2008 betrayal of women! Returned to Democratic Party with a vengeance in 2011 due to Republicans extreme religious zealot actions and I thought it was clear that Obama’s 2012 re-election might be in trouble! I was still carrying the hurt I felt from the Democratic Party’s 2008 actions but there was no doubt which party supported the issues I support and which party does everything they can to destroy those same causes! So, rose-colored glasses are gone and I do now see BOTH political extremes clearly; but I’ll call the Democratic Party my home once again!
For more years than I care to state, I was a loyal, very biased and somewhat extremist member of the Democratic Party. My rose-colored glasses were ripped off in 2008 when the Democratic Party, that I thought supported women’s rights, outright betrayed the first highly qualified and experienced woman for President, Hillary Clinton.
And, please, don’t jump to a conclusion that I’m a racist just because I didn’t think that Obama was ready for the job. I was just as enamoured with him when he gave his speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention as anyone who heard it. I just felt like and still feel that the Democratic Party chose an inexperienced MAN over an experienced WOMAN; and it was like a slap in the face to many of us who had fought for years for women’s rights and thought we were in a political party that supported us!
When I left the Democratic Party in 2008, I could see clearly how both parties and the media manipulated the news and lied to the public in an effort to get or to maintain political power and it sickened me! And, even though I have now returned to the Democratic Party, I will frequently be critical of representatives of any political party or members of the media that I consider to be using their positions to lie to the public or are misrepresenting something their opponents have said or done.
Of course, I haven’t changed so much as to ever support a conservative member of the Republican Party; after all, I’m still a strong supporter of civil rights, women’s rights, and the 99%! But, I will from time to time appear to support a Republican IF what they have said or done is being misrepresented by the same media types who convinced the public to vote for an inexperienced man over an experienced woman and who also helped to elect George W. Bush (highly unqualified) over Al Gore (highly qualified)!
So, many of my posts will involve politics in some way but topics may jump from politics to science/technology news to new inventions/innovations to just outright hilarious things I’ve seen or read. Of course, there’s a strong possibility that you will have a reaction to my reaction so please feel free to comment and drop by often.
UPDATE: Due to religious zealots’ use of the freedom of religion argument to introduce and pass laws all across our country that discriminate against and religiously persecute women, I will be supporting the Democratic Party in 2012. All women need to join together and vote those bastards out of office! Moderate Republicans, I am sorry but I don’t see any way for you to control the religious zealots who have taken over your party and introduced such horrendous laws against women! I realize that the Democratic Party has its extremists who sometimes support views that are not in the best interests of our country but they are nowhere near as dangerous as the religious zealots who are currently in control of the Republican Party.
