We recently had a change of Premier in New South Wales, now the Premier there is an American woman by the name of Kristina Keneally who worked for the Ohio Democrat Party before she moved over here.

I know she was an intern so you may not necessarily know about her but I would like to know, how is the Ohio Democrat Party on guns are they like Blue Dogs who can be friendly at times or are they like the uber leftist kind who want them all gone?

Hmmm, that's a bit of a worry, one of the things I've also heard about the blue dogs is they can often be chameleons, playing the pro-gun card until they get in like New York's Kirsten Gillibrand who seemed like a libertarian all the way up until her election after which she became Hillary2.

According to this she was also a member of the Teamster's union, how are they one guns, some unions are very anti-gun other's really don't care?

I think if she's a don't care sort of person it could be a good thing, if the worse happens and there is a massacre of sorts at least then she won't be the kind of with a plan in her head already like John Howard or VPC types seem to have. She's a early 90s Democrat so it's unlikely she'd be a pro-gun type but any insights into the party there could be useful

Insights into the US Democrat Party:

The national leadership of the Democrat Party is dominated by the most extreme leftists, most of whom are career politicians, many of whom have become quite wealthy in those careers (far in excess of anything explainable by their official salaries). The party agenda is driven by myriad groups (environmentalist, racial, ethnic, labor, homosexual) that have come to support the Democrat Party as a means of pursuing their own goals. This results in a lot of public posturing and pandering in support of such goals, as a means of maintaining the party's support by such groups.

Essentially, those involved in the leadership of the Democrat Party have come to power by taking advantage of those interest groups in pursuit of their own goals and careers. So many diverse commitments have been made, so many promises to so many different groups, that it is extremely difficult for the Democrats in our legislature to follow their consciences, adhere to the Constitution and rule of law, or even to support the concept of individual liberties. While publicly decrying discrimination and prejudice based upon race, ethnicity, sex, sexual preferences, and many other causes, the Democrat Party leadership continually demonstrates that it is they, themselves, who see the American population only as groups, never as individuals with inalienable rights.

The general membership of the Democrat Party is another thing entirely, in my experience. Most registered Democrats are pretty normal Americans, generally supportive of traditional American values and culture.

Living in a heavily union-influenced town (steel mill), I know lots of registered Democrats and lots of union members. The majority are one-issue voters, and the issue is whatever their unions tell them it is. Straight party-line voting is the norm. Oddly, most of these folks are almost fiercely patriotic, many are hunters, and most believe in individual rights and private property. They just get all the wrong information (propaganda?) from their national and local union bosses.

So, it is very difficult to identify what makes an individual citizen a "Democrat". I think that it is largely a matter of family tradition, with a good helping of propaganda added regularly, and the perceived self-interest fed by that propaganda.

Politicians found out many decades ago that it is easy to bribe the American people with their own money. As Theodore Roosevelt described it (c. 1905), "When the American people find out that they may vote for themselves largesse from the national coffers, the Republic will degenerate to a democracy, and the democracy will degererate to a socialist state".

The bastards have been doing it to us ever since, and show no signs of changing.
