19. Its easy to paint a false picture and then attack it, when all nuance is thrown out the window

 

The critique many make about the corporate friendly nature of both the Democrats and Republicans is more subtle and also makes a hell of a lot of sense. The Democratic party is not a leftist or progressive party these days, and hasn't been for, well, as long as I can remember. Its become more and more centrist and right leaning, not the other way around. And it doesn't help matters when President Obama signs legislation such as extending the Bush tax cuts for the richest, when he promised he wouldn't. (to give just one example, there are others)
