Frogs in boiling water...

only the frogs are more than willing to have the heat turned up. TPTB have made war clean (like clean coal) so most people have no conscience about the extrajudicial mass murders on the innocent. Meanwhile the soul of the USA is being sold to the greedy rich while the idiots believe they have a chance to become like them. Yes the Dems had the chance to make a lot of huge corrections but they for the most part like our POTUS succumbed to TPTB. I don't believe the POTUS ever really was what he portrayed himself as being during his 1st campaign. I know I feel that I have been lied to. I sit here without health insurance because I fall between the cracks with my income. I'm lucky I have income at my age and my house is paid for ...but I give credit to God for that. I do hate to see the US go down the path of complacency and serfdom as it capitulates to the 1% and insatiable war mongers. IMO the only remedy is a mass revolt with mass protests and civil disobedience ...Howard Zinn would agree. The only real changes that have happened here did so because of revolt. DU is going to have a war in 2016 and it has already started. I'm with the left ...always have been since being anti establishment, anti corrupt corporation and anti war in the 60's.

Blind ignorance is not exclusive to one political party.

I see the attitude like D's are the only smart and sensible ones and then I see the corporate shills and lovers of the rich fawning over their pictures. We are IMO about as conflicted as the GOP is. Corporate 3rd way centrists are the enemies of progressives, populists, liberals and greens. It ain't a purity test. We will never meld with them. We Dems have our own corporate owned tea party. The only reason we are here is so they can have their "big tent" and push their "if you don't vote with us you are voting for the other" freak show. There will never be another FDR because of them. They really don't want an FDR. Status quo is the agenda ak Hillary.

The Dem party is going to lose elections if they don't move to the left IMO.

The alternative: The Dem party will continue to win elections if they solicit corporate donors and bring more corporate thugs into office?

Motto: Poor people don't contribute enough money for us to win campaigns?

Howard Zinn: Protests and civil disobedience is the only way anything vitally important has been changed. (paraphrased summation)

My opinion: Only massive work stoppage, protests, civil disobedience and massive open rebellion will stop them.

What if no one showed up to vote ...because they all stink of filthy greedy rotting corporate money?

In our local sail boat race series we have a minimum race participation to qualify for a trophy ...makes good sense to me.

What if there were not enough votes to qualify to win a presidential election?

How few votes does it take to win?

What is a true majority in a Democracy?

We are all fucked as long as corporapublicrats are in office.

They are closing ranks around us. They have almost completely co-opted our government. They are countries unto themselves and above the law. They know they can continue to suck the life blood out of our country and THEY KNOW THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. Enjoy your delusion while you can.
