    STOPPED LISTENING TO US.

    I love Senator Sanders, but he can't do this shit alone, or with a mere one or two Senators helping him. Yelling louder really doesn't seem to matter much when people are obviously refusing to listen to anything other than dirty, filthy money.

    Voting is evidently not enough. We need concrete action. What that is, I shudder to think. But somehow, those people need to be given incentive to make them start listening to THE PEOPLE they were sent to Washington to serve.

    If they don't do it voluntarily soon, they will surely live to regret it.

    This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

      the Amash-Conyers amendment suggested to me that Congress is not as far out of our control as I thought. This war vote will tell me a lot.

      The party of Kennedy is also the party of Eastland. The party of Javits is also the party of Goldwater. Where is our party? Where is the political party that will make it unnecessary to march on Washington?

      In our republic, with procedures very explicitly set out by our Constitution, you are talking about a solution outside of that rule set.  Can you explain to me exactly why your post should not be construed as advocating revolution and anarchy because I, for the life of me, can't seem to see any other solution that does not entail voting and the process that surrounds that action.

        Had you read something other than my name on the post before you hit reply, you would have read this:

        Please feel free to misread someone else.
