95. Corporatists want Democrats and Republicans to hate each other

and focus on wedge issues that divide us, rather than noticing how the two parties are quietly working together on the most important economic, war, and police state issues.

In most major policy areas, the two parties are in terrifying agreement. It is well past time that Democrats and Republicans stop taking the bait to blindly despise each other and instead open our eyes to actual policy and how we are ALL being sold out by our corporate owners.

We will never have the strength and numbers to stop what is being done to us until we can agree that the real battle is between all of us and the banks and corporations who are now driving policy in both parties.

Our party is now actively complicit with Republicans in advancing the agenda of the one percent:

It's well past time to give up the illusion of what we are really facing here. We are under assault by corporatists who pretend to represent us, and we had better figure out what we are going to do about it, because change is not coming from those who claim to be on our side.
