29. Yeah, but people who are SPONSORED by Chuck Schumer and other DLCers are NOT for the middle
class, i.e., big business and military industrial complex supporting right-wing democrats.

We don't need to move our party ANY FURTHER to the right. We're already abandoning the middle class in favor of "business" and it's VILE. :puke:
