    of the Bolsheviks and the Nazis, how they used the rules of democratic bodies to destroy those bodies, and in their favor.

    It is not a conspiracy theory or hyperbole to recognize that the modern Republican Party is dedicated to destroying any hint of democracy.

    Which is what makes those "centrist" Demojerks in DC who always seek bipartisanshiT all the more infuriating.

    Take the filibuster, for example...

    People need to remember that the writers of the Constitution were thinking of "treason" from within when they wrote the document; having in mind the previous century-plus of the British experience where factions conspired to gain the reins of government.

    These are conscious enemies of the nation and its people, and Democrats who cede anything at all to them have to realize that they are aiding our enemies.

    Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.
