    They have nowhere else to go.
    it has been the same scenario for Democrats but the party has been tacking more toward the center in the last few decades.  i had hoped the economic upheaval in 2008 would convince Americans to get more progressive in their mindset, but no.  i want to send back every Democratic solicitation for money with a note telling them to get back to be progressive FDR and 60's Democrats.  i would but it would cost me a book of stamps every month and i don't think the message would get beyond the person opening the envelope.

    it may take a few more Republican presidents and total collapse of our economy, depression style, for Americans to finally get a clue that Republicans are just no good for keeping the country steady and moving forward.  things don't seem to get fixed until something breaks in how this country operates.  it may take a another century or more to get it right.

      I've been voting for "the lesser of two evils" for thirty years.  The only exceptions were 1992, when I voted for Bill Clinton, not understanding what his membership in the DLC meant for his policies, and 2008 when I, full of Hope and Change fervor, made the mistake of hearing what I wanted Barack Obama to be saying instead of what he was actually saying.

      I'm not sure it makes any difference that I vote for the least evil presidential candidate anymore though, because congress has almost completely been bought and paid for by the 1% and succumbed to the dark side.
