Response to Dyedinthewoolliberal (Reply #60)

61. Stop defending this garbage.

Stop celebrating it and pretending it is real representation instead of the scam it really is. Demand a real offer. Demand real policies. Call a rigged game what it is.

This is a ridiculous, cynical game, pretending that it cannot be otherwise. The nation is against austerity. The only ones who keep pushing this shit are the politicians and the oligarchs who benefit from it, yet we get this ridiculous mantra that anything else is just not possible.

If the people rose up and spoke out and quit being apologists for policies that we would never accept from the other side, they would have to listen to us. But over and over and over and over again it is the ones pointing out that we are being shafted, deliberately shafted, who are challenged, rather than the cynical politicians offering the unconscionable and getting away with it merely because they have a "D" after their names. They divide us, and we circle our wagons around our teams and accept the unacceptable, and they laugh.

Stand up TOGETHER and they will have to hear us.

They will have no choice.
