    isn't democracy, any more than assigning votes by the dollar is. The Democrats can win elections in a dollar-dominated political world by "respecting rich America's concerns", but that's oligarchy, not democracy.

    You've had several years of a party that actually does what you say the Democrats should do. Enjoying it?

        Do big city Republicans understand rural people any better then big city Democrats? Hardly, imo.
