For those who might not know, there is a recently formed Clarksville Democrat Political Action Committee (Clarksville Democrat PAC). When I first heard about it a short time ago, my hope was that it would be the beginning of an effort by new leaders to return some integrity and pride to my former party...especially after some of the very distasteful actions of the past. Alas, the return of integrity and pride seems to have been kicked to the curb in favor of more of the nonsense of the past Old Democrat party. It appears that New equals Old. Is that a surprise?
The new Clarksville Democrat PAC sent out it's first mail piece. It is laced with rumor, negative innuendo, and outright misstatement of facts (for you who tend not to be a little politically correct, a misstatement of fact is what you might call a lie). The positions in the mail piece are entirely different from the positions the New Clarksville Democrats put forth in their so-called 'Contract with Clarksville'. I had hoped for more moral uprightness from a 'new' Clarksville Democrat organization...alas, it seems it's not to be. At this rate it will take a long time (if ever) to rebuild any sense of integrity and pride in my former Clarksville Democrat party.
Also, there have been many seemingly phony-baloney absentee ballot applications submitted to the clerk's office. If the Dems aren't using Mike Marshall to guide the process, they seem to have learned well the shenanigans of his methods.
If the good, honest Democrats don't follow the lead of many others by voting Republican in order to send the message that the unacceptable behavior must stop, all of Clarksville will be the worse for it.
JMO as a former Democrat...
