    If there's a democratic candidate for any office, no matter how local, no matter how small, no matter how minute their chances for winning, working for them would be the answer.

    Building your own party is the answer, even if it means losing a few (or many) elections.

    •  Besides, if you want a moderate conservative (0+ / 0-)

      the Democratic party is unfortunately chock-full of them. Especially in the South.  Anyone still in the Republican party is to the right of that.

      •  The elected officials at the federal level... (0+ / 0-)

        sure, I'd pretty much agree with you across the board although there may be one or two remaining. There are a good number of them that are no longer in power that are trying to change things... Mike Schmidt (no relation) for example.  But as for the rank and file, there's a lot of them that don't understand what happened to "their" party. I know a lot of republicans here in Georgia (it's Georgia, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a republican) who think their party has gone overboard and don't know how to fix it but aren't willing to jump ship and go democratic.
