    there are so many sociopaths dividing the lunatic vote.

    Look at the platforms of Bachmann, Santorum, Gingrich, Perry, et al.  Combine them, and you have a very large group who want to re-make this country into the kind of thing Orwell and Welles foresaw.

    •  Add in the dems who support the security state. (5+ / 0-)

      It's a fully bipartisan problem.

      Reality has a liberal bias.

        And those really piss me off.

        What proportion of Dems support that?  What proportion of Goopers want to go much further?

        They are not the same!

          Cuts to Social Security?
          Cuts to Medicare?
          Expanded drone wars?
          The NDAA and indefinite detention?
          SOIP?
          The TSA's security theater?
          Collecting personal information of media and journalists?
          Assassinating US citizens without judicial oversight?

          The GOP being even more crazy (Rick Perry's "reinvade Iraq" bullcrap) doesn't make the Democratic party sane.

          Reality has a liberal bias.

            (learn to read!) in what proportion?

            There are assholes everywhere, but just because we have Ben Nelson doesn't mean we are anywhere near as bad as the GOP, whose most liberal person (Snowe of Maine, probably) is even worse than Nelson.

            While some Dems are awful, that does not make the democratic party crazy, and those who play this card are IMO full of shit, and don't belong in polite company.

            Yes, I'm talking about you.  Be specific - don't paint with that broad brush - or shut the fuck up.  You are damaging our chance to do some good here.  Anything the opposition can use to paint us as divided hurts us, and every division from within slows progress.

            if you have a problem with Dems doing stupid shit, let them know.  Write letters saying "your support of XYZ sucks, and I oppose it".  But don't compare them to the sociopaths on the other side.  it's wrong and counterproductive.
