    How about better Dems, period?

    DINOs have hurt us much too much in the last 20 years.  I want to vote for a Dem who espouses a Democratic platform based on the US Constitution, not some middle-of-the-road compromiser who is going to always, consistently, give in to the fucking Repukes every blasted time.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor

      It was the first time in years that I was voting FOR great candidates and not just against someone.   I was pumped up and excited.

      And all I've got to show for it are my Obama/Change You Can Believe In tee shirts.

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

        ... the old man and the tundra tramp.  I could not vote FOR the favored Dem candidates (whose positions differed very little from the others who had the exact same positions, down to using the same words, sentences, phrases).

        After all the Frontrunner Candidates had answers very much like Obama's by the summer of '07, I gave up on them.

        I liked Kucinich's not-for-profit single-payer health care plan and admired the fact that he brought articles of impeachment against Dumbya and Dickie and originally planned to write his name in.

        Then came RNC.  Before she was three sentences into her VP acceptance speech, my jaw dropped into my lap, I knew the Tundra Tramp could not be allowed within walking distance of the Oval Office because she was just as, or more, stupid than Dumbya, so I was forced to reconsider my planned write-in and vote against them [thus, "for" Obama-Biden].  Anybody but the lecherous old man and the tundra tramp!
