27. The base, that is us, must demand more from our party. And let them
know when they fall short--the bankruptcy bill is a prime example of Democrats not standing up to stop this egregious giveaway to banks and credit card companies--which they have stopped, in the past, by the way. Why did they let it go through this time--you have to ask yourself. Could it be that too many of our Dems have been corrupted by the same special interest, the banks and credit card companies,as the Rethugs.

Without the committed "liberal" groups that make up the core of the Democratic party, the party cannot win. The DLC is intimidated by the Democratic netroots folks like us-and well they should be. We are the base--without which the party cannot win.
