  •  OWS knows Democrats support the same things. (0+ / 0-)

    Although there are more expections in the Democratic Party, and the 99%-er base of the Democratic Party generally isn't as batshit insane as their counterparts in the Republican party.

    In other words, lest you crap yourself with glee at the prospect of trotting out the 'false equivalence' canard, I'm not saying Democrats (the people) are the same as Republicans (the people); I am saying Democrats (the political leadership class) are little enough different from Republicans (the political leadership class) as to make no difference to the rest of us.

    •  Not to the same extreme extent that the Repubs (0+ / 0-)


    •  Well to each his own, I respect your decision (0+ / 0-)

      to vote for a 3rd party or not vote.

      I really have lost my will to keep fighting this same battle.  I am too busy registering new voters and doing a ton of GOTV with OFA. That is where I am comfortable and I feel good about that. I have been doing this for 35 years and nothing will ever persuade me to stop. It is part of who I am and I Love it.
      I never give up.

      And I respect your right to do as you see fit.

      We progressives can focus on several things at one time and not be at odds in our core beliefs..We just go about in different ways and may focus on different goals at one time or another.

        doesn't help anybody, even if it does help you get through the day, so to speak.

        What you're doing is hurting yourself and pretending you're not, just the same as the poor rural guy with a stars-and-bars sticker on his rusty pickup hurts himself by voting R all the time. I respect your right to do that, even if I don't respect that you are doing it.

        •  I feel very confident in what I am doing and I (0+ / 0-)

          am not ignoring facts and I am very comfortable with how I am handling things.

          But I also respect what you are doing and I respect your feelings on this too.  

          I am not hurting myself and if I am , that is my cross to bear and I will deal with it, with all due respect.
