    •  And perhaps that's not a good idea. (0+ / 0-)

      Citizens United raises the cost of doing that very significantly.

      IMHO, the game has changed some, which is where I've changed some in response.

    •  Let me clarify. (0+ / 0-)

      The real politics are corporations vs people.

      The only ones in Washington pulling for the people are the Progressive Democrats, and the likes of Bernie Sanders.

      Everybody else is for the corporations.

      When they stand down, the cost to them is divided by the ratio of corporate politicians to non-corporate ones.  For them, let's just say this is a 4:1 number.

      So then, it's one quarter the cost.

      Now, for us, that's inverted isn't it?  1:4, and that same division means FOUR TIMES THE COST.

      It therefore is significantly more important that we hold our solidarity than it is for them.

      IF THEY ARE GOING TO SCREW THE PEOPLE, MAKE THEM OWN IT.
