23. This is true:

The amount of control over the party that they have, compared to the actual number of "Democrats" who adhere to their GOP affiliated corporatist ideology, is extremely disproportionate.

But we didn't know about this, at least I did not until fairly recently and I imagine a majority of Dems who are not political junkies do not know about it. Education is important, to spread the word so that more people realize why things do not seem to be working even when we elect Democrats. There are way more of us then of them. And there is strength in numbers. But we are not organized or well funded as they are.

So, where do we begin to remove this poison from the party? I can only think of a few things, 1) Work to primary those Dems who are Third Way and 2) spead the facts around as much as possible.

Learning about the Third Way explained a lot for me that had been so baffling for so long. The seeming betrayal of Dems in key votes during the Bush years eg. NOW I get it.
