    this Democratic President, made clear by Markos over and over, then wtf are you doing here?

    You are apparently compromising your own principals by participating here. You really ought to examine your motives.

        fail progressivism by not voting.  Maybe I should say "legitimate" candidate who will be able to garner enough votes to defeat a right wing nut job.  Because the progressive in me can't sit around and let that happen either.  I'm all ears....

          I don't have any easy answers (that's how you know I'm not a republican) but I'm done with brand name politicians.  They get to be brand names by selling out.

            talking ideology.  As a progressive I can't stand by and let right wingers hurt the most vulnerable in society.  And as a progressive I can't refuse to be a legitimate part of the governing process.  So I've got to make choices.  Hopefully progressives will work hard to present a slate of progressive candidates for me to vote on.  But if they don't I'm not going to quit.

        Maybe you should go visit dailypaul.com.

          Believing that this president has failed us does not make me a tea bagger, or a libertarian.  If we are going require loyalty to this administration as litmus test for being a "bona fide" progressive I guess I won't be one.

           I believe that ,like true love, there is a candidate out there.  We  can't quit looking, and we can't just settle for what we got.

          You gotta have hope.

          •  There are no perfect candidates, especially (0+ / 0-)

            not politicians (and yes, they're all politicians, even Bernie Sanders).  You're going to be sorely disappointed your entire life.  But hey, sometimes some people prefer being in a perpetual state of disappointment, cuz purety standards are a bitch to live up to.

            Huh?

            I've given you no litmus test for being a "bona-fide" progressive.  You're getting things twisted up in your head. I'm simply saying this is a Democratic website that supports Democrats (albeit as left-leaning as we can get them). So if you don't support Democrats, then why are you here?

      •  And this is a Democratic website (0+ / 0-)

        I'll let Markos tell you himself.

        this is a Democratic site. That's my party, and that's what I'll work with.

        I think you should find yourself a nice purely progressive website that shares your goals and philosophy/ideology, and save yourself some angst.  It appears to be eating you up.
