Specifically to deny the will of the people, and subvert the election in favor of the oligarchs ...

Shame shame shame ... Only the most cynical citizen could approve of such graft ...

I guess DU is full of that cynicism ...

I guess the leadership of DU has also been seduced by the pull of filthy lucre ... OR ... They merely approve of very unliberal/pro oligarch policies ...

Either way - you have to wonder what happened to the purpose of DU ....

Was DU intended to be used as a media vehicle for promoting the oligarchal world view? ... that's not the impression I had when this started in the early 2000's, but it certainly is a reality today ....

We have no place here ... This pit of Machiavellian cynicism and political graft denies progressive goals and favors bankers and the status quo ...

THAT is shameful ....
