    regarding "purity" is the purity of loyalty to a party which seems to be more valued than the purity of ideals.

    The need for the occasional compromise anyone can understand; we all make little compromises every day of our lives.

    But when a political party engages in wholesale capitalization of almost all of its ideals, that isn't compromise, its corruption of the core philosophy to serve instead greed, profiteering, and gain for an elite that gets into political power.

    Most of the executive branch cabinet level officials, and most of the senate and the house, are millionaires.

    The slow creep of capitalization to Wall Street has been going on for decades, and has become so complete that the average Dem citizen has accepted this state of affairs as the norm. And those of us who say, "Wake up! Please become aware that this is out of control!" are not the purists in this situation. The purists, rather, are the party true followers who have confused pragmatism with outright complicity.
