10. Their contribution is money.

The corporatization of the Democratic Party has created a large pool of "stuck" voters. They support Democrats, without enthusiasm, for lack of a less bad alternative. There is a huge opportunity for a third party occupying the left side of the political spectrum as the Democratic Party abandons the interests of traditional constituents in favor of the interests of business interests that can pay the bills for ever-more-expensive election campaigns. If we are going to preserve the Democratic Party, we need to find ways to neutralize the power of money in our elections.
