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.

Health care vs. gun ownership

The outcry from Teabaggers over “Obamacare” isn’t about healthcare at all its entirely about gun control.
“If I’d seen a dozen guys with guns all holding signs that say, ‘Socialized medicine equals gun control,’ I would’ve died and gone to heaven,”… “If this becomes law, there’s no place to escape” if the government wanted to use federal medical records to deem citizens “medically unfit” to carry a gun, says Mr. Pratt. “No trial, no due process, just gone.”
Larry Pratt, "Gun Owners of America".
That seems like a crazy and illogical statement. But that is Larry Pratt-see "Eight Lanes Out", the extremists, extremist and "father of the militia movement"; the man who gave the keynote speech at Coatesville’s own Pat Sellers fundraiser when he ran for Congress in 1996.
People on Social Security and Medicare seeming irrational rants about socialized medicine and government run health care make sense when you add gun ownership.
Even though there has not been a peep about restricting gun ownership from the Obama Administration the NRA and in particular Larry Pratt’s "Gun Owners of America" intensely believe that government healthcare is really a back door way for a black President to take guns away from white people.
Linking “Obamacare” with taking guns away from white people seems insane but in the world of right wing extremist Republicans it makes perfect sense.
