    Aren't third parties without candidates just movements?

        I see how the Tea Party was quite powerful, but how does something like that form on our side?

        They were able to take a shared anti-sentiment, and leverage it to reduce the Democrats, improving the Republicans, keeping significant influence for themselves.

        How does that work for us?  Where is the shared strategy element?

          But I think it is fair to say that we have everything we need here at Daily Kos. We simply need to strike the word Democrat wherever it is mentioned. The Democratic party is corporate-owned at the Federal level.

          There is a methology for creating an all-powerful voting bloc. The People's Party. We could probably inherit a lot of Baggers.

          •  Then we don't have what we need here at Dkos. (2+ / 0-)

            "more and better democrats" does not align with what you just wrote.

            Sorry, but it just doesn't, and that's not a attack, or anything, just some discussion.

            I'm looking for that today, because I think I'm shifting away from some things I held dear.

            We are losing right now.

            I'm not ok with that, and need to be contributing to stopping that, and that lies beneath progressive or democrat, or anything else right now.
