    ever again. I'm done.

    I will vote for my Democratic Congressman who voted against the deal.

    I am waiting to see what my senators do. I won't vote for them if they vote for the deal.

    I am now a proud graduate of loyalty to the Democratic party. I am voting for a third party candidate who is for the 80% of Americans who desperately need an FDR.

        couldn't cut Trillions worth of programs people need, because the Dems united against them when he tried to touch them, and he had 8 years to do it.

        Only a Dem president can get away with it because he pulls in enough of the left to go along with the right.

      •  Will people ever let Nader 2000 go? (0+ / 0-)

        Stephen Colbert could have gotten higher numbers than Nader in 2000.

        Democrats have been unable or unwilling to stop the Republican messaging from the '80s that blames the poor for their fate, that announces that government makes things worse for people, and that views wars attacking developing countries as the way to help bring about their freedom. The Democratic strategy in the last decades of shutting out critiques from the left has been a complete failure in that it has let Republican ideas prevail (which is more important than whether a R or D candidate wins) without a strong enough challenge. Time to try a new strategy.
