    Many of we Democrats don't really care whether government is big or small, we just want it to be effective and responsible

    ...is exactly how i've long felt (i'd also like it to serve the public rather than corporate interests).

      and it's frustrating to see so many people fighting the wrong fight so much of the time.  

      This is one of the areas where I think the media is such a big problem, and the parties exascerbate it.  Their incessant D vs. R panels are feckless and solve nothing.  They should switch to a format that features a large portion of the show dedicated to reporting in more depth and educating, and panels should largely consist of representatives of the people vs. the plutocrats, regardless of party.  Because this is the real match up in the world.

      I think the media is largely incompetent these days, but I also thing that those who are not incompetent, and those who are drivers of propaganda are happy to continue this false match up, divide the people amongst themselves as a method of shielding the plutocrats and masking the true issues.
