31. And I have not done so. Saying you are dissapointed and expect the party to represent the people is
not a "smear". And I have not advocated for the removal of any party member, although I have seen many many posts on a regular basis discuss this of the blue dogs, and that seems to be tolerable by the mods, by the way.

I am a registered democrat and have been probably longer than you have been alive. And I certainly have earned the right to expect my party to listen to people like me. I don't see anythign in those rules about blind party loyalty, as you seem to be inferring in attempting to silence my voice.
