    the group of its stated ambitions.  the marquee group.

    parties are judged on the coincidence of their rhetoric and their actions as you are doing above.  that is what i am doing as well.

    trust me, i have not for a moment thought of the democratic party as some paragon of perfection.  your attempt to point out that the democratic party is imperfect is unnecessary.

    the question is, do you want to make them do the right thing or do you want to spend time explaining that they have always been a bunch of gas bags and liars, they have rarely done the right thing for everybody and we can't really expect any better out of them - or do you want to step up and do something about it?

    are you a democrat?  do you vote for democrats?  why are you participating in this racist, flawed institution if you have such a clear-eyed view of their many faults?  because it's always been that way and doggone it, you like it like that?

    i'm part of the 99% - america's largest minority
