5. When campaign cash means more than those that voted for you believeing
you would protect labor, the environment and consumers (i.e. the BANKRUPTCY BILL which is DRACONIAN) then that's fucked up and those centrists need to go.

WHen policies of Democrats HARM the people they claim to represent then something's wrong.

Furthermore, the DLC has led Dems AWAY from a 50 state strategy so that they could use this cannard that only a conservative Dem that votes Republican can get elected in those states.
