What is the role of liberals and progressives in the Democratic Party? [View all]

As some would suggest, they are there only to impede progress and liberal ideas. The Democratic Party would be much better off without them. Or if they want to be part of the Party, they should just sit down and shut the fuck up. Let the adults, the chess players, do what needs to be done. The Jerry Brown and Ralph Nader supporters should find a new Party. They are not welcome and we don't need them.

It seems all they are capable of doing is criticizing what the present leadership does or doesn't do. All they really need to do is just vote in the next election and bring all their friends along, so we don't get the fascists back in power. Their job is simple enough. The powers that be are not going to change. The money changers are in control of the temple and there is nothing we can do about it. So get used to it. Stop rocking the boat.

The way to win elections is to appeal to the middle ground. Everybody knows that. So why don't you liberals get on board? We don't need your advice. We know how to win elections without you.
