  •  The differences between what a Repub (1+ / 0-)

    would continue to do to this country and what an elitist Democrat would do are stark.  

    Katrina.  Your vote and those of others like you may make the difference between people getting a professional response from FEMA in a disaster or another cronyism/social darwinism response.  

    Alberto Gonzales.  Your vote and those of others like you may make the difference between keeping the Dept. of Justice an arm of the Republican party and Pat Roberston's dumping ground for his "law school graduates" or turning it back into a professional department with professionals.  

    Veterans.  See the diary for differences.

    Military.  Your vote and those of others like you may make the difference between continuing the destruction of our military or returning to responsible management of our military.  

    National deficit and debt.  Your vote and those of others like you may make the difference between continuing the complete disregard of our budget and a deficit that keeps growing along with a debt that gets further out of control.  More tax shifts where 90% of the country get their tax money shifted to the wealthy in the form of tax cuts.  

    I can go on and on where every single one of our candidates will be better than any one of the Repubs candidate.    Just having a Democrat in the White House will make huge differences from having a corrupt, nutcase right-winger Repub and that means all of them.

    Yes you are behaving like a "Naderite".  You're refusing to look at the long term and having a short term tantrum.  If you can't get everything you want now you're willing to throw away everything.  

    This is a long term movement.  It's not about one election.  It's about making long term change.  This election is not about getting your specific candidate in.  It's about getting a Democrat in so we can start rebuilding the horrendous damage the R's have done.  Any Dem will make a huge difference.  Does that mean we stop there?  No we keep on electing better Dems and more.  We keep on building a progressive farm team and getting them into office so in the next election we will have many more better choices.  Your attitude will leave us fighting not only the regressive attitudes in our own party but a much stronger Republican party.
