    and we need to support them all the more strongly when they stand with traditional democratic values in the relentless attacks from the right.

    If we can reconnect with the people locally and nationally we can win.

      As such, it tends to have more sympathy with other corporate entities than with the people it purports to represent.  Victorious grassroots candidates are tolerated, but not much appreciated.  So, the contest with the other party tends to take center stage.  Being responsive to the electorate not so much.

      The conservative mind relies mainly on what is plain to see.
