  •  considering that we have only 2 parties (0+ / 0-)

    and considering that the commenter went out of his/her way to rail about women's rights I would say my reaction is spot out.

    And to declare that it's all a game is pretty CT to me. It implies it's all a game and it's all worthless which is exactly what the 'serious 3rd party advocates' say and can never prove.

    People like that commenter will rail and rail about the Democrats do everything they can to convince you that there is no difference when even among Democrats that do favor some restrictions or regulation of abortion there are vast differences between them and the GOP. And never mind that that part of the party is not a majority and frankly is only shrinking.

    But that commenter either can not understand any of that nuance or refuses to acknowledge it and considering how childish they have behaved I really don't think there is a difference and I am don't feel like beating my head against a wall to find out.

    So yeah to me that's a conspiracy theory, it's a wild unsubstantiated unprovable allegation.  The text book definition of a conspiracy theory.

      I'm not going to get into the rest of your comment, except to point out this actual definition of "conspiracy theory":
      a theory that explains an event or set of circumstances as the result of a secret plot by usually powerful conspirators
      It's a lot more specific than an "unproven allegation." Words have meanings.

      Once again, all SLMD was really saying is the Democratic Party leadership will say and do whatever they think will keep them in power. It isn't a particularly difficult concept to grasp. That you think the modern Democratic Party leadership, virtually alone among all politicians who have ever lived, are not chiefly concerned with their own power, demonstrates little more than your own naivete. (There are of course exceptions.)
