    ...that significant elements in the Democratic Party LIKE the way things are now, don't want real power, because the Dem base expects results when power is attained.

    We're not the Repub base, we want change. We want immigration reform, an end to the war on drugs, true universal health care (Medicare for all!), and a host of other things that the rich and powerful don't want.

    We sometimes forget that even though the Repub Party is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the 1%, that's also true of a significant part of the Democratic Party as well...including our next candidate for president.

    Join Essa in a revolt against the gods. Continue the fight, Causality.

      •  CA Democratic Party has REAL Democrats (0+ / 0-)

        I'm a Bay Area native, long-time resident of California.  I can tell you right now, CA Republican Party is as popular as dog doo doo right now.  CA Democrats are more liberal than national Democrats and do NOT compromise with the GOP.  Plain and simple.

        Plus, in California, we're loving it that Gov. Jerry Brown has managed to get us out of a serious budget deficit hole that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger blew up in his tenure.  Now CA has a State Budget Surplus.
