Democrats Against Harry Reid

Monday, November 16, 2009
Most political movements focused on electing a candidate into, or an incumbent out of office are prone to fall pretty much along party lines. Beat Reid is no different. But, at least internally, we are more about giving someone else a chance in the soon-to-be-available Nevada senate seat than we are about conservative politics in general.
We are often asked what our reasons are for wanting Senator Reid out of office. We can’t deny that it makes sense, at least on initial inquiry, that the motivation behind supporting one candidate over another stems from adherence to a political philosophy. If a candidate espouses an ideology different from one’s own, one is against them. To be truthful, that IS our motivation. But, the ideology we are adhering to is not necessarily a conservative or liberal one. We believe that when politicians put remaining in power, and reaping the benefits of that power, over serving those who elect them its time for them to go.
Our authors vary in their political leanings, we have democrats and republicans ranging from liberal to conservative on our staff. Considering that Harry Reid is a Democrat, and one of considerable stature within the leadership, it comes as no surprise that we have more right-leaning authors than those on the left. But the perspectives of democrats who recognize the need to remove Reid are important to us. If you are a reader of Beat Reid, and also a democrat, or know a democrat who would like to see another politician (whether democrat or republican) sitting in the senate instead of Harry Reid let us know. Write to us and share your opinions, give us your most compelling reasons why Nevadans should elect Harry Reid out of office in the 2010 election.
