    don't want to be labelled as soft-hearted friends of the poor. (We saw that in the 60's with "bleeding heart liberals", and RR and friends put an abrupt end to that, with lots of help from Bill Clinton and his friends at the DLC).

    The Democrats have constituent envy.

    •  Our current crop of Democratic leaders SUCK (1+ / 0-)

      They aren't so bad on actual policy, but they refuse to SELL it and make it STICKY so people will support it.

      It's downright maddening.

      Infuriating.

      So help me get the message out to them that they MUST start speaking out on behalf of We, The People -- to hell with the Big Corporate Interests. If they'd do that for us, Big Corps could piss all the money they want into elections and it'll never amount to a hill of beans because citizens would be showing up to the polls in droves to elect people who say loudly and strongly that they are there to represent the freedom, opportunity, and security of middle class and working class Americans.

      But it's up to us to be exactly like the teapartiers and demand representatives who will not waver from their positions in support of People over Power.

      Stop the party of Gut & Spend policies that gut our Earned Benefits programs like Social Security and Medicare and spends on tax breaks for the wealthy elite.

      out of the party!

      I can't believe that ObamaCare™ was being held up by Ben Nelson, Blanche Lincoln and their ilk due to the "socialist" (public) option.  They are traitors to their party and no better than a (mainstream/moderate) Republican.
