The Democrat Party: About That Messy Democracy Thing…

In a stunning reversal, the Democrat Party has dramatically updated its party platform heading into the 2012 elections. The announcement was made in an email blast under the header “About that messy democracy thing.”

Surprisingly, the email stirred little controversy in left-leaning circles. It was apparently sent out several weeks back, but wasn’t even commented upon until a moderate was accidentally forwarded it on a college listserv.

This is what registered Democrats received in their inbox:

Dear Amazingly Steadfast Party Supporter,

Democracy has served our country well. It gave our constituents goodies by the sweat of other people’s brows, cushioned our air-conditioned staff lounges, and ensured even petty social activists could reach the soaring heights of elected office. We don’t have to tell you how much we appreciate merely having to take a token oath to retire with full pay and the bennies. That’s not the point.

We’ve reached a stage in our country now when we’re having a different crisis every day – a terrible situation to be in – and we’ve arrived at the hard conclusion that it’s time to take all the decision-making out of your hands. Don’t worry, now – that’s our job.

Let’s face it, we’re smarter than you people. We have our ivy league degrees, and the time we spent at that one conference in Cancun last year, what was it – Public Policy: Who Needs It? – and we feel it would be inappropriate for you to tell us how to do our jobs. We’re so much more advanced than you and we wouldn’t want you to blow a neuron trying to keep up with us. Pardon us for being honest for a change.

Although we’re going to keep the name “Democrat Party,” trademarks and copyrights, you see, we’re going to have to start doing away with this messy democracy thing. Ironically enough, it’s bad for business. And if we may speak plainly, yall are just interfering.

Now, we’re going to take good care of you, don’t fret. We’re going to give you universal healthcare of the highest quality, retirement pensions starting at age 40 (with good behavior), free education, free college, and no more of that nasty military business. We’ll also give you free food, free shelter, free clothing, free wi-fi, free computers, free cable television…these are all human rights now, and no one can ever take them away from you. This is all predicated on your perfect amenability to these arrangements, I’m sure you understand.

Anyways, it’s been fun America. We enjoyed these little election exercises. It gave everyone a chance to get out for a while, get some fresh air, finally meet the neighbors. But you see, it’s such a waste of time and energy. Things would be so much more efficient and just plain better if we could attend to the duties of ruling you for your own good without your interference. We don’t mean to meddle. It’s all a part of making the world a better place, and we want you to comply.

Take care, America. We hope you like your new masters. If not, you can always call 1-800-4YR-GOOD and an SSR (Subject Service Representative) will try to contact you within the next 24 hours (*due to high volume, we cannot always ensure prompt response).

We gave it a good go, America. But now it’s time to submit.

Sincerely, The Democrat Party

  1. I just hope that those who were Democrats have awakened to the fact that this little story is exactly like they found the party to be telling them. At least the Black party members who woke up and realized that, yes, this is what they have been hearing for years now. The Socialist Democrat Party is telling all those who’ve they’ve been taking care of for years and years now, that they just need to keep quite and stay in their corner and the Party doesn’t need them to do or say anything in order for them to know how they feel. The Black and now, White Democrats are awakening to the same thing. I’m sure it angers both, that is I hope it is angering them.

    I want to hear more from Democrats who’ve woke up and realize they had been taken for a ride all these years, and their votes were wasted when they could have voted for a better person who was running against the Democrat. And now they regret putting the Democrat, who is really a Socialist or worse a Communist, who is working on taking all the rights away from not only the very people who helped put them into office but those who believed that voting against them was sending a message to Democrats that there is a whole bunch of people in this country who aren’t going to let them destroy this nation.
