    It's a big umbrella but the Democratic Party in Washington is so far to the right of the Democratic Party of my youth so as to be roughly equivalent to what was the liberal wing of the republican party.
    I'm a lifelong Democrat but I see the main value of the modern Democratic Party to be mostly as an obstruction to the the relentless forces of conservatives but still America continues to veer to the right.  Progressive legislation?  Gone!  
    Everything though is cyclical and someday OUR Democratic Party may return and your post gives us the goals but we have drifted so far from where we were...............

    •  Nope - we're the one and only. (2+ / 0-)

      We can find other people to hold office.  They can't find other people to vote for them in primaries.

      Technology is a compromise: You can use whatever tool you choose, but be assured it will use you back.
