2. If we had a real force in the DNC....
and pundits on the ground, this would be
the result from this historic day on the
floors of the House and Senate.

6. neither do dems
they don't want anyone looking too closely so when they pull strings the repugs won't cry foul or look too closely. I think they showed us their true colors. Democracy for America! All new leadership. That's the only way we'll get free & fair elections.

7. and replace them with who?
I agree we could do better with more
courageous voices out there speaking
for Democrats and progressives but throwing
out the whole bunch is a weak argument.

8. This is the core of the repub party
This has always been what they have been about. They are Mega business. They want what they want and only the strongest can survive. If you get to vote and don't = you lose, If you vote and don't catch them in the act of steeling or not counting = you lose, We have to fight them by finding out how to bring down a major company monopoly = we win.

10. Ha! They never have!
Do you ever see repukes doing any kind of get out the vote efforts?

NO.

Instead, they try at EVERY TURN to stymie the vote.

They are the ONLY ones who bitch that you should have to be older than 18 to vote. They are the ONLY ones who bitch that you should have to pass a fucking TEST to vote (echoes of the olden days anyone? Trying to keep blacks from voting? Anyone remember literacy tests?).

They are ANTI-DEMOCRACY. THEY ARE ANTI-AMERICAN. And I've known that for a long time.
