    The SCOTUS is Extraordinary.

      Armando, you write well and a great deal.

      All of it from within the two-party system.

      If you feel dismissed on these pages, it is because so many Americans are dismissive of the Democratic party.

      You are tight with the party that the Republicans have been towing all over the political landscape for decades now. You ponder poll numbers and red/blue demographics when we don't even count votes anymore, and don't plan to start any time soon.

      Everything the Democratic party does is a reaction to what the Republican party says or does. It is not an opposition party in any real sense of the term. It's a rowboat behind the Republicans, trying to emulate them. You're in that boat.

      Carefully crafted compromises with the latest Republican insults upon our governing institutions is arranging deck chairs, nothing more.

      Both parties support the Iraq war to this day.

      That plank alone has already cost the Dems every future election. Failure to fight election fraud or supreme court frauds when they happen just nails it down.

      Half the Dem party now wants nothing to do with the party or their hold-your-nose-and-vote candidates.

      The time for sweet reason is well passed, for most of the people you think are listening to you. It's like asking us to eat cake.
