  •  We have a new progressive bloc in the Senate (1+ / 0-)

    for the first time in 40 years.

    But if you truly want a more progressive party, there are already several out there.  Why aren't you a member?  Because they're small and insignificant?

    •  Because the Democratic Party hasn't yet pushed (0+ / 0-)

      me over the edge.  But I am on edge.  An austerity budget that cuts entitlements while preserving low taxes for the wealthy and the MIC will push me over it.  

      Obama has me confused at the moment.   Does he believe the words he spoke yesterday or does he believe in the Grand Betrayal?  

      We shall see.

      •  Maine can do their "independent" thing (0+ / 0-)

        But this is the result of third party candidacies on a state wide level.

        The Democrats are the only near term option.  Work on whatever else you want to on the side, in your hometown.  But federally, the Democratic Party is pretty much all we got.

        There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.

    •  You are arguing with a die-hard 3rd party dreamer (3+ / 0-)

      Before the election this poster was here campaigning for the Green Party. He's here to undermine the Democratic Party, for whatever personal reasons.
