freightdawg BS: Kucinich v. Texas (62* d) RE: BS: Kucinich v. Texas 19 Jan 08

Good point, Bee-dubya-ell - my apologies for the poor choice of title. I should never type that late at night

I have really mixed emotions about this, as Bee also mentioned. I firmly believe that any organization, duly formed, has the right to make its own rules, and anyone that wants to join has to abide by those rules.


Here we have a state party telling an individual that they must support the eventual nominee. They are not just telling everyone in the state party of Texas they must support the eventual nominee (although that might be true) but they are telling an outsider to the state party that the individual must abide by state party rules.

My question is why do this? It is just plain bullying.

As much a defender as I am of the rights of organizations to make and enforce the rules by which they operate (however unseemly they may be to an outsider), provided they violate no state, local or federal laws, I have to support Kucinich on this one.

Whatever happened to, "Sir, I may not agree with what you say, but I shall defend to my death your right to say it." (or words to that effect)

(And about the title to this thread - any Mudelf help to clarify it??)

with a red muzzle,
