  •  I think Liberals are going to (0+ / 0-)

    retake the Democratic Party.  We didn't leave the party, somehow the party left us.

    How are we going to do it?  I am going to work my ass off at the state and federal levels (forget the Presidency for now, lost cause).

    If you think education is expensive, wait until you see how much stupid costs

    •  I hear you but... (0+ / 0-)

      If liberals retake the democratic party and it's basically a teabagger version of a democrat you are going to end up losing voters for a longer period of time than you are comfortable with.

      The Presidency is a big deal especially if you are going to give it up because he is not liberal enough.

      Better to leave the party in my opinion.  If America is to sustain itself originality has to be a part of the process.  You have to recognize the harsh realities of that graph.  The likelyhood that liberals will be able to take over the mantle of the democratic party, within X amount of time is a tough road to hoe.

      How long would you be willing to realistically work at it and still have an affect on government policy, or at least the kind that you want to have.  

      American moderates have proved more than willing to ditch "principles" for productivity.  You are taking less of a risk I think by going it alone and there is a bigger payoff in the end.

          I can imagine they react the same way to things they don't like.  

          That's the whole point, the numbers say the public overall is rejecting your point of view, even if they like the policies, that's an attitude problem.  

          You have to drop the emotional garbage and grow up.
