    Republicans aren't enough.

    It takes people who believe in the notion of one person and his money individually earning and deserving so much more than others that they embrace unlimited income and wealth disparity.

    It takes who believe that the richer the rich are the better we all will be.

    It takes people who believe that more money to the rich will incent them to invest, while more money to the poor will discourage them from doing anything.

    Basically it takes a Republican. And a Corporate Democrat is pretty much interchangeable for the 1%.

    When 1% take 121% of the gains from "recovery", people actually recovering from lost employment are trading down on wages and benefits. Current strategies by moderates don't even consider winning the Class War.
