    They keep accepting cash.

    The main players in both parties are bought and paid for.

    There will be no economic democracy until this changes.

    Obama's only real appeal to progressives is that he's sort-of center-right, which is better than being a bobble-headed freakazoid right-wing nutjob.

    But that doesn't mean he's going to give most voters anything more than crumbs from the corporate table.

    The corps are perfectly happy with Obama. His token noises about wealth redistribution will disappear after he's re-elected.

    But really, if anyone wants economic democracy - secure well-paid work, employee co-ops, epic tax breaks for productive small businesses such as green energy outfits, significant New Deal-style stimulus spending - they're not going to get any of that from the mainstream Democrats.

    "Be kind" - is that a religion?
