    what the party stands for well enough. What we need to remind people of is this "deranged" concept we have that we the people have the power, indeed the duty, to give the boot to any politicians wearing our team colors who do not.

    •  Frankly, it's been so damned long (12+ / 0-)

      since my Party stood for what I have always expected them to, those core beliefs that I expect them to champion, that I'm losing hope that they will ever find their way back to any semblance of liberalism or solidarity with labor and the middle class. They've for the most part paid lip service when they must, but as far as being out in front on anything I'd consider progressive, they've been mostly mute and all too acquiescent or even accommodating to the creeping security state apparatus that spies on us all, passing along CISPA and not prioritizing any kind of meaningful Wall Street/banking regulation.... and the beat goes on.

      Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
