Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog
Public Corruption in Chester County, PA
I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

I would argue that the Republican Party is not “on the ropes” but down for the count.
Sanford Case a New Dose of Bad News for Republicans
By JIM RUTENBERG
WASHINGTON — Republicans were just starting to breathe a little easier.
I would argue that the Republican Party is not “on the ropes” but down for the count. The Republicans used the ladder of racism to climb to the top. That ladder fell and broke into pieces. One of those pieces is the Republican Party. Some others are “Reagan Democrats” and white supremacist organizations. People like Karl Rove and AM talk radio extremists like Hal Turner and Rush Limbaugh are carrying pieces of the ladder.
It’s true that the Southern Democrats once owned that ladder, but they dropped it with the Civil Rights Act and Ronald Reagan picked it up in Philadelphia Mississippi supporting “States Rights”.
There is a difference between people who register to vote as Republicans and the Republican Party. It is more of a chasm than a difference. Most of the people in Chester County who call themselves or register as Republican are not avid fans of people like Hal Turner; an extremist talk show host who has just been arrested by Patrick J. Fitzgerald, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois. They are what as known as Eisenhower Republicans. President Obama is much more like President Eisenhower than Adlai Stevenson.
CRIMINAL COMPLAINT USA vs.HAL TURNER:
The Democratic Party has been migrating to the “center” of US politics. Eisenhower supported the “New Deal” and thought that Republicans like Barry Goldwater were extremists that could never represent Republicans. The Democratic Party has now matched the beliefs and philosophy of Eisenhower Republicans. The present Democratic Party is in general to the right of President Eisenhower's beliefs. That is the reason that Republicans here continue to flock to the Democratic Party and leave the Republican Party here in Chester County to be supported by a few insane extremists and some others who allegedly could lose big if there was a change at the county level.
I think the best description of the present state of USA politics is found here:
