64. As a southern democrat I just want to say:

If we have to abandon standing up for equality for homosexuals, women, and minorities in order to get the south, THEN FUCK THE SOUTH.

We don't need the help of bigots to win, and any victory with their help is a pyrric victory.

Focusing on our demographics and letting the republican's demographics will give us victory without selling our soul to the devil. We can stand on principle AND gain for the poor at the same time. By doing this we will naturally gain southern states. The hispanic vote in Texas is threatening to turn the state blue soon and once that happens its game over for the GOP.

I am here to fight for equality, both social and economic. I won't throw innocents under the bus to achieve one and forsake the other. I will fight for both!

That said, southern democrats are NOT a bunch of bigots!!!! There are tons of us out here fighting for rights of women, gays, and minorities of all stripes. You don't need to appeal to social conservatives to get us. Stand up for liberal values and grow true progressive who value economic fairness AND SOCIAL JUSTICE!!!

It can be done!

You dont need the bigots!
