    I believe that's what the primary fight is about.

    I believe that Edwards and Kucinich are the only Democratic, liberal, or Progressive candidates, from a historical sense, meaning someone who believes that government can be a positive force for humanity, on the Presidential ticket.

    I doubt whether the rest of them believe that. I think they think the government should not govern that much. Regulation is a touchy subject for them. They'll hem, they'll haw on regulation with carefully chosen words.

    I think that Hillary and Obama represent the interests that are flinging themselves off that sinking Republican ship.

    So I think that you're going to see, if Hillary or Obama wind up elected, is a reinforcement of 'Elite Liberals abandoning the People', and further apathetic political expressions from the middle class, our youth and the poor.

    Which means that We're going to be Hoover, and GOP President 2012 is going to run on a Populist & anti-Government sentiment and be FDR.

    We need to stand up for people NOW! Right Fucking NOW!

    If Hillary or Obama win and Democrats take up the corporate agenda this country is in for some serious trouble.

    Sharing and Caring are for Commies! They should be illegal.
