  •  If the democrats lose in 2014... (0+ / 0-)

    it will be their decision to enact austerity and cut Social Security and Medicare to blame.

    It would be an act of political suicide and the blame should be pinned on President Obama and Pelosi/Reid, Sen. Warner and any others who are pushing this madness.

    •  I stand by what I said (0+ / 0-)

      and frankly regardless of what the democrats do or do not do about Social Security and Medicare it is sure pique to not refuse to turn out.

      We have a 2 party system and frankly while I'd love to change that the odds are long on the system being anything other then a 2 party syste.

      You don't like what the people that represent you do? Then run for office yourself, organize a primariy challenge, call your representives, email them, show up and demonstrate but to not vote at all is absurdly short sighted and childish.

      •  A normal, healthy political moviement... (0+ / 0-)

        would spend the next year and a half speaking to the voters and addressing their concerns, not scapegoating them in advance for failing to embrace the crap policies the party was about to foist upon them.

        But the democrats are not a normal, healthy party with normal, healthy leaders.

        Meh.

        •  I'm not scapegoating anyone (0+ / 0-)

          and frankly you seem to have a perscution complex.

          I am simply saying that those that refuse to turn out because of one issue no matter how big or small, that refuse to recognize that in general the democrat no matter how corrupt or whatever they think they are is surperior to the republican candidate.

          This nation did not go sharply right over night and if like me you would like to show the American public how much better liberal and/or progressive ideas are (I only say and/or because definition differ on what makes something 'liberal' or 'progressive') then that requires electing more and better democrats. And the only way to do either is by turning out.

          You don't like that? Well too bad there's lots of things I don't particularly like either but they are what they are.

          Further I'm not going to keep repeating myself so you have a good night

          I am what I am
