    ...The Democratic Party and Democrats have come in for extensive critiques here at NN11, both by people who are part of the party and people who are not. There are 2500 participants here, and many more than the four you snarked about are on the left.

    The left itself is split (here and elsewhere) between those who seek to use the party as one of many tools for change and those who say there it's useless in that regard. That latter group is further into two groups: the small number who are actually doing something outside the party to  create change and the much larger group who are all talk and have shown no particular inclination beyond hammering their keyboards. I have a lot of respect for the first and second groups. I have zero for the third.

    Don't tell me what you believe. Tell me what you do and I'll tell you what you believe.

    •  First of all, there is no Democratic Party (0+ / 0-)

      any more.. not in the sense of the party that handed down 61 federal indictments againt members of the reagan/bush I administration-- indictments which actually busted some people, and came damn close to the top-- if not for the Christmas surprise.

      that is really, IMHO, the last time we had representative government with checks and balances actually (sort of) working.

      sorry to rub you the wrong way; I think you know by now I'm not a Kool-Aid drinker.

      at any rate.. thanks for letting me hang around.. and have a great weekend.
