  •  where did I tell you to get lost? (none)
    I was saying the exact opposite. I was saying that I understand the frustration about the current party, but that 3rd parties and not voting aren't viable solutions. The only viable one is to change the party.

    As for the "taking one's ball" line, it wasn't directed at you as much as at the numerous "I'm done with the Democratic party" comments and diaries that have come since Alito got confirmed.

    Republicans aren't evil. They're just wrong.

    •  Oh... (none)
      In that case, I definitely misread your response.  My apologies.

      I definitely think we have to work to change the party, and not abandon it.  The wheel is already here (if rusted and nearly square) - there's no need to re-invent it.  

      And I see where you're coming from with respect to the "I'm done" entries.  Mostly, I think they're done out of frustration, rather than actual intent.  But it's true - they don't do much for morale, or for inspiring actual change.
