  •  Look at the polls. Issue after issue. (16+ / 0-)

    You're wrong.  Just flat-out completely wrong.

    The majority wanted a Public Option and No Mandate.  That's what Obama ran on, and it's why he won by the largest margin in 20 years.

    You keep talking like that platform lost.  It didn't.

    A poorly constructed stimulus one third the size of what we needed lost. Pretending it had "worked" while wages and household income kept falling made the loss even worse.

    The People support a new CCC. They support writedowns of mortgage principle.  They support a Medicare buy-in.  They support (by huge margins) a Minimum Wage hike to at least 9.50.

    They aren't anywhere near as far Left as I am - but they are solidly center left on economic policy.

    They just don't trust Democrats to deliver center left economic policy, so they don't vote.

    Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?

    •  Agreed ... 100% (8+ / 0-)

      We have the right policies, the right ideas, the right message.

      And Republicans still win because everytime Democrats win, we let them down.

      The minimum wage has the buying power half of what it had when introduced.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      •  Very few of them actually go vote for Republicans, (7+ / 0-)

        which is what saves our asses.

        On the rare occasions we can get them to trust that the Party just might be returning to its roots - 2008.

        Rare voters all turn out and vote, even in the real long shot races.  

        One of the major failing of our sides "leaders" is that they just don't understand motivating the base.

        The Republicans keep passing futile "Overturn the ACA" bills in the House in order to show their base they're keeping the faith.  And for their base (much smaller than ours) it's working.

        Imagine if we made the Republicans filibuster 10.50 an hour 40 times in two years in the Senate.
