    And thus you give away the only power you have over the Administration.

    Until Democrats stop enabling their candidates out of fear of Republicans, they must accept that they are actively condoning their own politicians' excesses.

    The real enemy of the good is not the perfect, but the mediocre.

      and help assure that some other political group pushes through even more excessive and repressive laws.  i know that Democrats are far from perfect.  You got a better option? Other than not participating at all?

        As long as there is no consequence where it counts, Democrats have no reason whatsoever to take you seriously.

        You call them cowards, and then say you'll vote for them anyway because you're more afraid of Republicans. Think on that.
