12. The Democratic Party as it stands today IS the replacement for Repigs.
I haven't seen a dem candidate that is actually liberal, other than Jerry Brown in CA or Kennedy in MA. We've been taken rightward for years. Clinton, the best prez in my lifetime, was right of center, really, IMO.
We need a truly liberal, progressive party. Unfortunately, our party has been taken over by money and is nearly as addicted to it as the repigs. We need to get money OUT of politics, period. Same with lobbyists. We need to get back to the things that made America great, much of which is now gone— individualism, progressivism, science & technology — and we need jobs BACK in the USA.
How disgusting that most anything you can buy anymore is made by communist slave labor. Remember how we learned communists were The Enemy? The repigs, and many money-hungry dems, have sent American jobs to China, India, places where people are desperate to make any money at all. We need to become the nation representing freedom and equality that we were taught in school the USA was all about.
Money and religion have fucked up politics. OUT with both of them. And tax the damned churches.
