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.

The old white man vote won elections for Republicans. And the clock is ticking.

Across the entire nation, even in very local state and county government elections Republican candidates won elections based exclusively on an anti-Obama vote. The GOP corporate partners in the US, China and India ran anti-Obama attack ads across the nation against Democratic candidates; even local and state government Democratic candidates.
 The voters that turned out in a very big way to cast that anti-Obama vote against their local Democratic candidate are old mostly white men who can’t stand living in a country with a Black President. Without that old white man vote the Republicans would have made no gains in the House or Senate. Those old white men have been taught by gun owners groups to believe that “Obamacare” and its national healthcare database is a thinly disguised plot by a Black President to take guns away from white men.   
The old white men, Teabaggers and a smattering of outright white supremacists, white nationalists and anti-government militia groups are now the voter base of the Republican Party.
But the Republicans have a very big problem in the coming decades. At some point most of their existing base will reside in some grave yard. And if the Republicans have their way and transfer Social Security to Wall Street and privatize Medicare their base will die off sooner.
But Republican leaders could care less about where their votes come from. How they get in office doesn’t matter. The GOP leadership only cares about the corporate money that flows into their pockets. The bottom line for the Republican Party is serving their corporate partners across the world and the returns they get from those corporate partners.
The Republican Party leaders could care less about the GOP of 2020 or 2030. In 2020 or 2030 GOP leaders, like their Russian Oligarch counterparts, will be able to live on their yachts along the Riviera and laugh about what they’ve done to their old white man constituency and the United States of America.
