1. We also need people with the guts and principles

to elect people like Bernie (Bernie himself) as POTUS. Party first is killing and dividing us. It keeps the elite in power.

Thom Hartmanns "100% billionaire wealth tax" is such a simple and common sense approach to begin an equality in wealth distribution.
We do have some great politicians with the experience and the peoples best interests at heart. They are not supported by the MSM or the corporations but with the support of the average (80%) of Americans, we could easily elect them (him?) as POTUS.

BTW, Jack Lew as Sec. of Treasury... Lew headed a hedge fund for citigroup, betting on the failure of the housing market...
more corporatism/fascism. We are sick of this shit.

2. Nobody gets to run for President

who isn't 100% Wall Street Approved. Unfortunately for the voters, Bernie doesn't fit that bill. He would never make it out of the primaries, and the paid media pundits would be rolled out en masse to decry his candidacy, claiming him to be a loon with little following save for a rag tag bunch of left wing extremists. Elections for high offices in America are more or less just a formality, resulting in a predetermined outcome.

4. Thank you, NorthCarolina.

I was curious to see how many on DU would admit that. The original DU posters made no bones about it. They realized this and wanted desperately to stop this fascism. I don't think that applies much here anymore. Sadly it seems to have succumbed to the third way mentality that has seized our party.
I realize that DU was founded in protest to the 200 selection of w., we all know that a "democrat" can pass legislation that a rethug could only dream about......

...in these next fiscal debates.
