Always a few moments for a song full of truth and peace
We Democrats should have known better. We are totally guilty of what Santanna called “Failing to learn the lessons of history”. And to add insult to injury, we choose the wrong person to try and change that history.
Please join us for our March 2017 meeting.
Call to order 6:30pm Denny’s Restaurant 1110 E. Shaw Ave. Fresno.

In a “Letters to the Editor” in our local newspaper a correspondent made the statement that while he was a Democrat he always voted for the person who he thought would do the best job or was best for the position being voted on weather that person was Democrat or a republican.
I nearly fell out of my chair I was so angry! How, I wondered, how could any thinking, self-respecting, knowledgeable Democrat be so DUMB as to EVER vote for a republican?? Of course, the answer was obvious almost instantly: this was NOT a knowledgeable Democrat and this person considered himself far too smart for his own good. In addition, he displayed one of the great weaknesses of Democrats: he was trying to be fair on all fronts. Won’t work folks and in fact this is why we fail as Democrats to correctly identify the conservative cancer which is infecting our society and threatening to destroy it from within.
I’ll say it again plainly and then explain why:
NEVER, NEVER VOTE FOR A republican – EVER – PERIOD!
