    replace them with "lesser of two evils".  However, that mutes the point that I was making which is that we've "accepted" less and less progressive Democrats as time has gone on because we're always voting AGAINST the Republican who is always worse.  Pretty soon it's going to be something like Hitler vs. Stalin and we'll be stuck as to who we should vote against.

    Putting it in other words, which candidate do we vote for when they'll both screw us, but one will enjoy doing  it more?

    We need a better choice.  To vote FOR someone than simply against someone worse.   I voted FOR Obama in 2008 (and worked my ass off for his election) and AGAINST Romney in 2012.

    I know those words raise flags, but I was making a serious point and not simply being inflammatory.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      I just don't see things the same way you do on this. I did vote FOR Obama. Twice. And I don't think he's out to screw us.  We'll have to agree to disagree.
