    people have it covered no matter who wins this election. We lose either way. NDAA the renewed Patriot Act, drones, robocops all under a Democratic administration. Of course the RW is worse I don't need to hear that another time. Still it is a case of extorting my vote and even if I give it to them I still get my civil rights gone daddy gone, endless war, no democratic representation and a free market fundamentalism economy, that fines me when I slam the door. We need to take it back, globally. This is fascism it is no longer a question of degrees they mean to do us harm and they own our government, our electoral process and the front men pols we get to 'vote' for.

      ...for this deliberate and blatant defiance of TOS, insinuating "no difference" between the parties, and absolutely no material viability in electoral struggle.

      Oh well, another time...soon, I'm sure, considering the consistency of this poster's proliferate practice.

        me? I am a Democrat I belong to my county party and am currently working grassroots to get a real Democrat elected as major in my city. I am also not 'giving up', going anywhere, and do not believe in cosmic doom. The TOS decider has stated that it is better Democrat's we need to elect. The Third Way Dem's who are running our party need to go.

        I said the RW is worse. There are a lot of voters out there who resent like hell the fact that they really have no choice. Most are Dem's or Indies. It's not like this administration hasn't continued down the slippery slope of the Bushies. Are you going to talk to Democratic voters like this when you get out the vote? Good luck. My neighborhood is solid Democratic liberal and most people say 'What choice do I have?'. They know the Republicans are bat shit crazy and yet what about the Dem's......

        You cannot troll rate people for noticing and speaking against what our government is doing. This administration is particularly bad about civil and human rights, those inalienable rights like habeas corpus the ones that were put in place to put checks on power. The ones needed among other things to have a viable  democracy. I believe in the people, I believe in OWS, I believe in our sacred documents. this  current lot of Democratic pols in power are not about to stop our slide into fascism. There are some good ones but they have no power.  

        'But elections are not enough. In a true democracy, it is what happens between elections that is the true measure of how a government treats its people.'  Barack Obama

          ...who's "just" disappointed and disillusioned, and "just" wants to tell the "truth" about how Obama is "really" a fascist, totally responsible for everything the Right wing majorities impose on him, and an absolutely non-viable fraud.  

          Why am I not buying that line?  

          Because it's not the slightest bit credible...

      unbelievable. The hyperbole undermines any semblance of a reasonable argument.
