  •  Bingo. We Need to Go Third Party, people... (2+ / 0-)

    I know, I know. This is a Dem-only site and all, but either Progressives take it upon themselves to establish a new party en masse, or they will be forced to because right now BOTH parties are feeding out the trough that Republicans set up and they will absolutely never give that away. And they won't make the WH pay because they don't want to jeopardize their piece of the pie.

    Since 2006 they have done NOTHING to make the WH accountable. And yet we're still here racking our brains on how to make them work for us. The answer is right there: they don't want to.

      Taking over the Dem Party is gonna be easier than you think. I've got other reasons for saying that but.....

      This clip ought to show you that. Anybody stupid enough, arrogance plays a roll also, to stand up in public and say this just don't get it.
