    ...holding the democratic party feet to the fire

    I did that? I simply asked what you suggest they do specifically, and I appreciated your response. I responded to it thoughtfully (memory lapses aside), and without rancor. Also note, I could give a shit less whether or not you 'forgive' me. I would neither seek nor require it in this circumstance.

      you sounded earlier puzzled as to what the democratic party could do....I posted this journal as a point of reference to inspire folks to challenge, strongly, the democratic party, or replace them. The party will only respond with tremendous pressure. If it comes from its supporters...all the better.

      I'm well aware we are a representational democracy. In fact, I love the encampments for their practice of direct democracy. Perhaps it is a direction we will need to move to gradually.

        I just don't see that ever happening, at least not on a national scale. I'm with Madison on that one.
