    The Dem Party constantly pees in the face of progressives and tells us "it's raining !!!"

    And all we can do is smile and say "thank you, sir--may I please have another?"

    What choice do WE have---vote gopper instead?

    The Dems ignore the progressive agenda for the very same reason the Goppers ignore the fundie loonies---neither of us can go anywhere else. We have to smile and take it, and hope they toss us at least a crumb or two once in a while to keep us reasonably happy.

    In the end, reality always wins.

      It's also, in part, the answer to why I come to DK, even though I am not a Democrat and not a progressive.

      You can't even mention global warming or the possibility that American health care sucks (and it has reached that poing) in some places.

      Where to go is a problem for lots of people in a poltiical environment that offers only 2 overlapping choices.
