Not All Democrats Are Agreed On All Issues


Some Democrats are planning to vote Yes on both Propositions 30 and 38 with the thought that the schools are so badly underfunded, that anything that might help is worth voting for. Don’t forget that no Democrats are obligated regarding Propositions by the Party’s recommendations.

Some Democrats are supporting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to the United Nations on September 27. But many see a real threat of war in Mitt Romney’s bellicose support of everything recommended by Israel’s current hardline cabinet.

Not all Democrats are agreed about the current Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement negotiations. See Vera Moldt’s thoughtful article in the Opinion section of the Club’s website. The opinion of free trade enthusiasts in the Party is given on the website of the President’s Trade Representative, Ambassador Ron Kirk.

    I agree. I was at a meeting yesterday, and the others were saying the same thing that
    “yes” on 30 and 38 is what to do, as it’s possible that 30 won’t pass, and if “no” wins on
    38, we’re out of luck in getting the extra revenue.

    Haven’t read the TPP article yet so will be checking it out.

    Was at a dinner meeting tonight and sat next to a woman who changed her party to
    non-partisan as she was mad that she lost her job due to Guv Brown’s cutting out the
    Redevelopment money; she’ll still vote for Obama but not happy about CA Dems. See,
    it’s personal.
