    or so years when there hasn't been enough Democrats in Congress to advance the GOP/DLC/neo-liberal agenda?  Hell, at  least the anti-abortionist, anti-contraception misogynists has some of the party that's been playing them for suckers publicly singing their song right now.  Some even willing to sing it loud and long enough that they lose come November.  

    •  Well the Party Overall Became Conservative in (4+ / 0-)

      the 70's, despite passing particular liberal policies and including many liberals/progressives over the years.

      But net, especially economically, it's a conservative party, and even if it only had minority conservatives we'd still have conservative majority in government essentially all the time.

      We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"
