    I'm just saying not to panic. The idea that the GOP is some unstoppable force that the liberals have to just accept are better is bullshit. If they were, they wouldn't be in the minority right now.

    People panic too much on this site.

      •  GOP might be in the minority but Dems (0+ / 0-)

        are extremely boxed in by needing to raise funds from GOP interests including Wall Street, Big Energy, Telecommunications, etc.

        Democrats can hardly get their message across without it being filtered through and distorted by the Vast Right Wing Noise Machine.

        If it weren't for the wealthy Republicans efforts, America would have made much more progress along FDR's New Deal lines instead of winding up polarized, with so few Progressives in office. Look how we couldn't even get healthcare reform with a public option.

        Some background...and it continues today:

        "Invisible Hands: The making of the Conservative Movement from the New Deal to Reagan"

        Typical of how they do it:
