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.

Do the Republicans really want a Theocratic Dictatorship?
President Eisenhower saw Nazi Germany and understood what happened there could happen in any country. Democracy requires that citizens work at their government. Dictatorship demands only loyalty. I believe President Eisenhower saw the seeds of dictatorship here, especially among some Republicans in Arizona.
There is a lot of near violent name calling but there is no reasonable opposition political party. The “Republicans” just want our Federal Government to fail.
It’s complicated, but I believe that the Republicans have been overtaken by those who believe a non-Democratic Republic Theocracy like Christian Rome had is best for our country; hardly a loyal opposition. And more like a repudiation and trampling of our Constitution. In our country “Conservative” does not include those who favor Theocratic Dictatorships over Democratic government.
The Democratic Party as it now stands is nearly a match for the Republican Party of the 1950s. It is a very big tent that includes both Liberals and Conservatives. In that light it is easy to understand the appeal of the Democratic Party to such a large number of voters.
President Clinton addressed this issue on “Meet the Press”:
There is a “Huffington Post” article “Clinton-There won’t be a repeat of the 94 Elections” here:
