    I believe that the stated mission of this web site to elect more and better Democrats is misguided, because the Democratic Party in its current state is too deeply compromised by its ties to concentrated wealth to allow for the nomination and election of better Democrats, however many of them there may ultimately be. More importantly, I believe that the site's policy of banning people who advocate for third parties is destructive because it creates a disincentive for liberals and progressives who participate here to help in building the political leverage we need to either reform the Democratic Party or replace it.

    Bottom line is that you don't agree with the basic mission of Daily Kos. This isn't a site for liberals and progressives to further their agenda. It's a site for committed Democrats to elect "more and better Democrats".

    I think that there are in fact other web sites that are more about the "agenda" than the party. This just doesn't happen to be one of them.
