49. I'll Show You....
Gotta love the online tantrums. If the Democrats don't do so and so then I'm "outta here" or "gonna become an Independent" and so on. Gonna take the ball and go home, eh? Well, don't let me or anyone else stop you...and don't let the door hit you where the sun don't shine on the way out.

So by leaving the Democratic party, you're really gonna show all of us...and the Democrats in Congress. And also to the corporate media who just love to show how divided Democrats are...making sure the meme of Democrats being weak carries on. Congrats, you've made their points.

Yes, I'm pissed and frustrated if Democrats don't stand up to this regime on the Iraq fiasco. Yes, this illegal war for profit should be defunded and this regime forced to be accountable and by opting out of the process, you just became a part of the problem, not the solution. Besides helping Repugnicans hide in their true enabling of this invasion, you've broad-brushed all Democrats, Nader style, as doing nothing and being the same as Repugnicans. The GOOP appreciates your kind donation.

Don't like what the Democrats in Congress are doing? Then do something about it. Find a Progressive candidate that needs someone to make phone calls or send them a couple bucks if you can spare. If its your representative, organize actions, such as letter writing, phone calling and personal confrontation with other voters in your district to express your displeasure as one of that Congresscritter's constituents. Sitting behind a keyboard and throwing an online hissy fit does little to bring this illegal invasion to an end.

If you're gonna bitch, offer positive suggestions on how to remedy the problem.
