    that question after 30 years, you're ignoring the obvious answer. Simply NO.

    My mother who retired in Florida 15 years ago is a life long dem. She tried to work in the party but the obstacles and cliques made it difficult for her to get involved.
    A friend mine who is Green suggested after the 2000 elections that the values I espouse are in the Green Party and to stop kidding myself with the dems. It took 10 years but I got it.

    Building is hard work and we may not live to see the maturation of the seeds we plant. That is a choice I believe liberals and the left have to make however when we switch to Green.

    As Einstein said about insanity, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. This is what happens when we vote dem and continually reep the same set of disappointments.
