    we DONT have 3 major political parties

    we have ONE major party and one party that is dangerously divided and can't come together and its various factions are fighting for control

    the ONE party is the Democratic party and the divided party is the  republicans, who are more like a regional party then a MAJOR one.

      the corporate money party with outliers on both sides.  

      if dems were real dems not 1980's  self-confessed republicans like the pres...then we'd have a chance at a second functional party.

      you know, one that doesn't condone war, rendition, drone strikes on americans, a tax structure rigged for the wealthy, or sees OWS as a good thing requiring new real rules for wall street....   etc, etc,  

       I will not cheerlead for a "dem" pres whose positions are mostly right of Nixon and substantially overlap W's.

      did you do what you said you'd do?

      •  Democrats were "real Dems" with Carter. (0+ / 0-)

        Human Rights went top of the list.

        Management of the federal government was rationalized.

        But Carter, himself, failed to build relationships with his own party on Cap Hill.
