Can the Democratic Party be saved?

April 2, 2010

I am reminded of Abram bargaining with God over the fate of Sodom:

The LORD said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.” (Gen 18:26)

Are there 50 righteous Democrats in Congress?  The health care vote shows only 34. Bart Stupak can never again claim to be pro-life.

I’ve been saying for some time that after the liberty movement reclaims the GOP from big government, big spending RINOs the next task is to reclaim the Democrat party and kick out the Marxist extreme left (one of the meanings of “Reclaim the Blue”).

The health care vote show that maybe that’s not possible and that those who gave me skeptical looks when I mentioned it were right. Abram eventually negotiated God down to 10 righteous people and even that many couldn’t be found in Sodom.  In the end, God had a different solution: allow Lot and his family to leave.

That is probably also the best solution for the 34 Democrats who put the Constitution above party ideology: become independent, form a Blue Dog Party or even join the GOP. You’re welcome.
