I've Had Enough... [View all]

More than enough, in some ways, and in many areas. These are some of the things I keep hearing in many places on the Internet. I read more than DU, and the items of which I've had enough are expressed at many of the places I read. Here's a partial list:

I've had enough of equating Democrats with Republicans. They are not the same.
I've had enough of failing to recognize progressive actions when they occur.
I've had more than enough of people calling our Democratic President vile names.
I've had enough of Democrats attacking other Democrats, while ignoring Republicans.
I've had enough of exaggerations and untruths about a broad range of Democratic officeholders.
I've had enough of people who support individual Presidential candidates being accused of ruining everything.
I've had enough of the belief that a majority of congressional districts would gladly elect a truly progressive candidate.
I've had more than enough of seeing GOTV dismissed as useless and a waste of time.
I've had enough of a majority of Democratic voters treated as the enemy.
I've had enough of people who believe that they alone can speak for "the People."
I've had enough of the idea that 99% of the population shares the same goals or has the same needs.
I've had enough of the belief that the answer to everything is to kill corporations or destroy capitalism.
I've had enough of ridicule of people who suggest that reality and practicality matter in politics.
I've had enough of people being treated as "traitors" if they don't share some particular belief about some issue.
I've had enough of the fantasy that any single politician or elected official can effect sweeping changes alone.
I've had enough of fantastic thinking that ignores how things actually function.
I've had more than enough of single issue politics overriding everything else that is happening.
I've had enough with a disappointment with one outcome meaning that everything is lost.
I've had way more than enough of the idea that it doesn't matter if the Republicans control all three branches of government.
I've finally had enough with declarations that anyone would refuse to vote for the Democratic nominee for President.

Maybe you've had enough, too. So, what have you had enough of? You can post it in a reply to this thread.
