  •  The problem with elections is that your choices (0+ / 0-)

    are limited.

    If Democrats are hostile to your interests, you have little choice but to get behind somebody else.

    •  I wouldn't say hostile (0+ / 0-)

      A lot of it can be understood in terms of the prisoner's dilemma. Progressives want the best outcome for everyone. Business interests however would prefer to have a better outcome for themselves even if it meant a worse outcome on the whole.

      So when they get trapped in the death spiral of blind and aggressive self-interest, they can't get out.
