I'm tired of democratic activists being thrown under the bus... [View all]

...by the institution that is the Democratic Party.

I'm tired of having to vote for "the lesser of two evils" to have my vote count.

I'm tired of having to hold my nose and vote for Republican lite.

I'm tired of every progressive promise being betrayed, broken, and sold down the river.

I'm tired of the military being stretched to the breaking point, and of a Democratic President continuing and expanding the polices of a Republican President.

I'm tired of this President's utter indifference to the plight of LGBT Americans.

I'm tired of this Party embracing everything the Republican Party stood for, in many cases going further to the right than Ronald Reagan,

I'm tired of having to negotiate for unemployment extensions by agreeing to huge tax cut extensions for the wealthy.

I'm tired of the false choice between the two right-wing parties.

And most of all, I'm tired of vesting my hopes in the Democratic Party.
