  BRITAINS FUTURE - YOUR FUTURE
Having taken this initiative, and because we are basically a nation of democrats, and a nation that always becomes united under a crisis, it was thought appropriate that the name for this new political party should be The United Democrats.
To move forward with The United Democrats and because of the time factor, the internet has been used for speed of delivery, to gather support, and get our message across at minimum cost.
This is the reality, this is why we need The United Democrats, why we need a new type of political leadership in Britain, because the old politics have failed, they have become old and decayed, and no longer serve British interests.

 washingtonpost.com: Democrats Are United in Plans To Block Top Bush Initiatives   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Democrats said they see opportunities on Social Security, where Bush wants to partially privatize the system by allowing younger workers to divert payroll taxes to personal accounts; judicial appointments, where both sides are gearing up for a clash over a possible Supreme Court vacancy; and revising the tax code.
Democrats point to Bush's decision to renominate a group of conservative judicial candidates who had been blocked by Democratic opposition during his first term as evidence that he will aggressively push an ideological agenda in his second term.
For all their talk of challenging Bush, Senate Democrats are unlikely to mount serious opposition to the president's nominee for attorney general, White House counsel Alberto R. Gonzales, in spite of his role in shaping legal policies on torture and interrogation methods.

 Green Left - UNITED STATES: Democrats sabotage Nader-Camejo campaign   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
While the Democrats and Republicans — the two parties of the US capitalist class — are virtually automatically placed on the ballot, independent candidates and parties must collect the signatures of hundreds of thousands of registered voters to qualify.
Democratic operatives are harassing Nader-Camejo signature gatherers and trying to scare away potential supporters of the progressive candidates' right to be on the ballot.
Initially, the Democrats, their liberal and left-wing apologists, including the Nation magazine and the Communist Party, argued that Nader should not run in “swing” states, where his vote might be larger than the difference between Kerry and Bush, and could result in a Bush victory, given the undemocratic winner-take-all US electoral system.

 The Democratic Party
Democrats across the country marked 100 days to Election Day by gathering last Saturday to offer a new direction for America and to organize, energize, and motivate voters at 843 "Democratic Reunion" national organizing events coordinated by the Democratic National Committee.
Democrats believe that America should work for everyone, hard work should be respected, and health care, college and a secure retirement should be within every American's reach.
The "Democratic Reunion" was the latest in a series of DNC sponsored voter contact events that built on the success of the April 29th organizing day when 10,000 Democrats participated.

 Senate Democrats coordinate message, attack on Bush - The Boston Globe
Democrats in the Senate have already shown a willingness to flex their muscles on major issues.
Democrats lost three Senate seats in November -- including that of Tom Daschle of South Dakota, who was the minority leader -- and some observers expected Democratic senators to enter the year chastened and willing to compromise with the president.
Democrats say they are realistic about the prospects of their priorities becoming law.

 Why Democrats Are United against Alito
Democrats countered that the Bush administration had politicized the confirmation process by nominating a roster of staunch conservatives to the federal courts.
Many Democrats have indicated Judge Alito appeared too well qualified and unthreatening in his confirmation hearings to justify a filibuster, and without one his confirmation by a majority vote is virtually guaranteed.
Democratic leaders are nonetheless pushing for a lengthy debate over the nomination to make their case against Judge Alito.

 UNITED STATES: DEMOCRATS, CLINTON ELECTION WINNERS
Defying 60 years of electoral history, the Democrats gained five seats in the 435-seat House of Representatives, narrowing the Republican majority there to a razor-thing just six seats and severely weakening the right-wing leadership of House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Democrats also retained 45 seats in the 100-seat Senate where Republicans, as recently as mid-October, had hoped to pick up as many as six.
The fact that the Democrats actually gained seats in the House and held firm in the Senate in Tuesday's elections was considered "historic" by leading poll analyst Stuart Rothenberg, who predicted that the impact of the Democrats' feat would prove far greater politically than the

WASHINGTON Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives and Senate have united to call on President George W. Bush to begin pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq by the end of the year, citing an overtaxed military, billions of dollars spent and continuing sectarian violence.
"The Democratic leadership continues to demand that American soldiers end their mission and wave the white flag of surrender to the terrorists that we are fighting in Iraq," Ron Bonjean, a spokesman for the House speaker, J. Dennis Hastert of Illinois, said in a statement.
Democrats had previously advocated reducing reduce troops levels in Iraq but were split on the precise approach.

Democrats have offered a plan for success in Iraq.  The Senate Democrats' Real Security Act provides a blueprint for changing course in Iraq by implementing the Reed-Levin resolution, and giving our troops and the Iraqi people a chance for success by transforming the U.S. mission and beginning the phased redeployment of U.S. forces.
In this third letter to the President, House and Senate Democratic leaders strongly encourage the President to act more urgently to forge a political solution in Iraq and to more clearly inform the Iraqis that our commitment is not unlimited.

 Democrats Stand United in Support of Hurricane Katrina Survivors
In response to this historic catastrophe, Democrats have quickly taken the lead to advance a comprehensive agenda to provide immediate support to those devastated by the hurricane and to improve the nation's capacity to respond during future disasters.
Senate Democrats have introduced numerous other measures to provide for the needs of Hurricane Katrina survivors, and to ensure that we are prepared for future natural and man-made disasters.
Senate Democrats believe Americans deserve answers about why the response was delayed and dysfunctional, and deserve assurance that our nation will be prepared for disasters -- both natural and man-made -- in the future.

Democrats, in turn, accused Republicans of blindly walking in lockstep with Bush on Iraq and sought to unify their own rank-and-file.
"Democrats are united in the belief that George Bush has implemented a failed policy in Iraq and that the GOP Congress has allowed that to happen by abdicating its oversight responsibilities," said Phil Singer, a spokesman for the Senate Democrats' campaign effort.

 Saying No To Bush Agenda; Democrats United In Desire To Resist White House Tactics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
In part the new mood reflects the reality that Democrats are even more of a minority party than they were when Bush was first sworn in, their ranks smaller in both the House and Senate and their ability to influence the legislative agenda sharply diminished.
Democrats said they see opportunities on Social Security, where Bush wants to partly privatize the system by allowing younger workers to divert payroll taxes to personal accounts; judicial appointments, where both sides are gearing up for a clash over a possible Supreme Court vacancy; and revising the tax code.
Kerry's defeat left Democrats demoralized, particularly because so many believed the Massachusetts senator was going to win, and it has triggered a period of introspection and debate over how the party needs to change to win elections in 2006 and compete for the White House again in 2008.

The Democrats claim to be the “party of working people” — and depend on their base of unions and liberal organisations for votes at every election.
In 1985, Democratic National Committee Chair Paul Kirk said the council was “the backbone of the Democratic Party’s finances and its intellectual resources”.
The truth is that the distance between Democrats and Republicans is not nearly so large as the distance that the two parties together have shifted to the right over the course of the last 30 years.

The position of 75% of the Democratic Party is by definition the mainstream position of the Democratic Party.

UNITED NATIONS — An e-mail sent by a Canadian U.N. observer and obtained by FOX News casts doubt on claims by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan that the Israeli attack on a U.N. peacekeeper observation post along the Lebanese border was intentional.
Using a United Nations mission as a human shield is a war crime yet you will not hear the Left condemn them for this atrocious behavior.
In further evidence that The United Nations is a puppet of the anti-Israel world lobby, the new UN Human Rights Council voted to condemn Israel for human rights violations at every meeting.

Entitled “Democrats Are United in Plans to Block Top Bush Initiatives” Balz explains that the Regime’s call for bipartisan is weak at best, and an outright lie at worst.
“As President Bush prepares for his second term, Democrats in Washington and around the country are organizing for a year of confrontation and resistance, saying they are determined to block Bush’s major initiatives and thereby deny him the mandate he has claimed from his reelection victory last November.
There is also a proud moment for Iowa Democrats in Balz’s piece, as he includes a great quote and a great description of Senator Tom Harkin.

In 2002, the eight Democrats banded together, with few dissenters, to oppose the 2003 budget, the purchase of the Lycian Centre arts complex and the initial plan to fix the Orange County jail's pipe problem, to name a few issues.
This is a far cry from the three Democrats in the Legislature as late as 1993.
Yet former Democratic candidate for county executive Michael Sussman, a frequent critic of party leadership, remains unimpressed.

Most Democrats are against drilling in the refuge and argue the Defense Department budget bill should not be used to settle the issue.
Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said if the ANWR drilling language is in the defense spending legislation Democrats would argue it violates Senate rules because the provision is not related to defense issues.
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said it would be "an insult" if Republican leaders allowed ANWR drilling to be put in the defense budget bill.

MONTGOMERY — The Democratic candidates for state appeals court seats plan to run as a united ticket for the first time, stressing that their diverse slate looks more like Alabama than do the white Republican incumbents.
During their state tour, the Democratic candidates noted that Alabama's appellate courts lack geographic diversity, with no judge coming from north of Birmingham.
The Democrats' slate includes two North Alabama candidates: Cullman attorney Kimberly Drake for the Court of Civil Appeals and Lauderdale County District Judge Deborah Bell Paseur of Florence for the Court of Criminal Appeals.

Saakashvili and other Georgian opposition leaders formed a "United People's Alliance" in November 2003 to bring together the United National Movement, the United Democrats, the Union of National Solidarity and the youth movement "Kmara" in a loose alliance against the government of President Eduard Shevardnadze.
The United National Movement and its partners in the opposition played a central role in the November 2003 political crisis that ended in the forced resignation of President Shevardnadze.
After the fall of Shevardnadze, the party joined forces with the United Democrats and the Union of National Solidarity to promote Saakashvili as the principal opposition candidate in the presidential elections of January 4, 2004, which he won by an overwhelming majority.

In her current critique she returns to the theme, arguing that "presidents are archetypes of male potency".
At the Democrat convention, she writes, "Teresa Kerry's speech, which all but ignored her husband, did more to emasculate him than the opposition ever could." In contrast, Laura Bush's depiction of her husband "wrestling" with issues of war enhanced the president's potency.

Democrats said they intend to probe Bolton's comments on a variety of issues, an exercise that Republicans say could stretch the hearing into a second day.
Some Democrats predicted that Bolton could lose support among Republican members if he is unyielding in criticism of the United Nations.

 CNN.com - Key Democrats united on Iraq pullout - Aug 1, 2006
The move is part of an effort to shake the notion that Democrats are split on the Iraq war and keep the focus on what they see as a winning issue against Republicans.
Democratic senators and aides said the letter was intended to illustrate a unified position on the war after June debates in the House and Senate exposed differences inside the party, which Republicans tried to exploit.
Beyond trying to shed the perception they're divided, Democrats also are using the letter to advance another part of their election-year strategy: keep the spotlight on the war, which they insist will hurt vulnerable Republicans.
