    •  Hmmm, New Democrats? (4+ / 0-)

      I now think it is time for a new party.  The first step would be to form a committee to simply choose existing Democratic candidates to endorse - and start collecting money.  Eventually they (we?) can field our own candidates.

      •  Kos this is a great suggestion (2+ / 0-)

        leverage what you have built to

        (1) financially support Dems that deserve to be supported
        (2) Support the potential for a third party for those (most) that don't get our votes are not guaranteed.

        Just as the DEM party needs the leverage of a DEM president to be effective, the Progressive movement needs leverage as well. Creating new alternatives to the status quo sounds good to me.

      That's not so crazy.  

      These Dems are about two or three weeks away from making an irrevocable break with The People (who sent them there).

      I think we need a vehicle for denouncing the whole bunch of them, for letting the world know that "we don't know who these people think they're representing, but they're not representing The People of this country."

      These representatives are choking on a combination of fear and money - and I am sick of watching it.
