    picture, for sure!

    however, the Dems don't exactly fight hard for what's important anymore.

    •  I agree that some don't, (2+ / 0-)

      but many do and I think the party is made up of such a great diverse group of people that we will always be moving in right direction. Thank you for stopping by!

      To say that this election is the most important election of our lifetime is not hyperbole. It's the goddam truth. JF ~~~~I Vote for Democrats

        yes, you are correct.

        but not enough to fix things. we are mired in a Depression and our civil liberties are stripped away one by one. There is much misery out there, and too many in our party will not fight hard enough to fix things, leaving the ones who do out to dry,

          but I think we just approach things differently. I have to look at what I can accomplish and what can be done, and then focus on my local elections or issues to try and make a difference. If I allowed myself to let the anger that can easily accumulate by focusing on what still needs to be done take over, I wouldn't have the incentive or motivation to get involved. It would just be too discouraging.

          That is just me though, everyone is different and gets involved for different reasons and I am not saying one way is right or wrong.  I just hope that disappointment and frustration over the speed at which change is taking place doesn't result in republicans getting the upper hand.
