Grassroots ideas that can hopefully grow!

The Democratic Party of Brenham County, Texas, held their county convention recently (click for story). And if their platform is any indication to what’s in store for the National Democratic Convention, I have to say that I wholeheartedly agree with their thinking! Their platform includes:

* Abolishing the Electoral College
* Repealing Bush’s false Medicare Drug Improvement of 2003
* Dealing with the outsourcing of thousands of American jobs.

I have to totally agree. We have changed to get direct elections of Senators. We need to abolish the Electoral College. We wouldn’t be in the horrible mess that we’re in with the Bush Administration today, if it weren’t for the Electoral College.

One person, one vote. That’s how it should be!Democratic Party holds county convention

The Washington County Democratic Party passed a number of resolutions Saturday at its county convention, including support for Brenham State School and one calling for abolishing the electoral college.

The party’s Resolutions Committee, consisting of Doss Pruett, Roger Russe and Fred Shelton, presented a number of resolutions for approval.

Other resolutions approved dealt with out-sourcing of American jobs, school finance and education, opposition to electronic voting, repeal of the Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003, funding care for armed services veterans and repeal of the Social Security Government Pension Offset provision.

Two local resolutions were discussed: satellite voting in the general election and “town hall” meetings in commissioner precincts.

Selected as delegates to the Democratic state convention that will be held June 18-19 in Houston were: Bill Young, John Muegge, Carol Muegge, Angela Jackson, LaSandra Sanders, Patricia Olney, Doss Pruitt and Dorris Burrell.

Alternates will be Frank Blizzard, Brian Piercy, George Dillingham, Bill Weir, Sherry Weir, Josephine Foeltermann, Doris Williams and Vivian Francis.
