    you'll always get a kneejerk AIPAC elected; anyone not toeing the line can't win.

    It's a big bloc vote.

    Weiner, for instanced, denied that the West Bank was occupied.

    Hillary voted for the war.

      Schumer and New York specifically.

      The point I was making, the point I will continue to make, is that accountability is exacted at the ballot box. We must have the courage to withhold our votes from those who violate the public trust, even at the risk of occasional Republican victories. As long as we continue to cast knee-jerk guaranteed votes based on nothing more than party affiliation, our pols will continue to ignore our "demands" with impunity.
