  •  If you want grassroots democracy.... (none)
    ...you're in the wrong party.

    The GOP is an intensely top-down organization.  They pass out the talking points and the Mighty Wurlitzer booms into operation.  I'm sure you wouldn't want to be reduced to that.

    Unfortunately, while the Dems don't presume to simply pass out marching orders, they also aren't particularly interested in grassroots democracy.  

    Do what you will to get rid of Bush, but if the political culture of the Democrats frustrates you, try an outfit more committed to building from the ground up.

    In a "safe" state? Consider a vote for David Cobb, the Green Party's candidate for President.

    •  Name one third-party candidate for (none)
      president who got elected?

      Do you still miss the point?

      Here's a second:

      In order for any third party candidate to have an actual chance of getting elected, he must go mainstream.

      At which point the purists abandon him for betraying them.

      A circular firing squad is dumb, but it's quicker than running in circles.
