    we've had decades of the party being run by political diaper pissers, and f'king sell outs, who've been chasing the Roger Ailes right wing definition of du jour of "middle".

    While it is obvious, from election results, that McGovern / Jesse Jackson ... style of standing up for the little guy,

    SADLY

    didn't work, in my not humble opinion, that is because those standing up for the little guy policies needed different packaging.

    the thugs figured out how to turn people off to compassion - so, change the name.

    (oh yeah - and it sure as hell would help if the goddam programs would work better - as someone who has been on 20 different medical plans, including Cross Your Fingers too many times, as someone who spent his teen years in the 70's on welfare, as someone who has used unemployment retraining a few times, as someone who has wiped out his piddly shit 401(k) once, as someone with a mountain of student load debt ... the current hodgepodge of safety net programs suck. they're only better than nothing.)

    RIP George McGovern.

      as long as there is so much corporate money in politics, they'll remain a problem.

      Our only saving grace is that, once elected, they have a hard time keeping their seats.
