    McCain and Romney would have left crumbs, too.

    We voted for "CHANGE".

    Unfortunately there has been, where it matters, either no change or change for the worse.  How many "progressives" here (young or old) voted for the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer?

    Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .

    •  Then get a magic wand or fairy dust. Government (0+ / 0-)

      doen't work like that nor was it intended to.

      This in a democratic republic. You have to vote in every election from local primaries to Presidential elections.

      You never know when the guy or gal running for local dog catcher will one day run for Senator or even President.

      I always keep that in mind when voting in city and state elections.

      It’s the Supreme Court, stupid! Followed by: It's always the Supreme Court! Progressives will win only when we convince a majority that they, too, are Progressive.
