4. A person has to dig way down and wide to get a swing at that pinata.

It's appalling that in a country that only has two viable parties, one of them, that regularly gathers close to half or more than half the votes, is so far out to lunch on simple matters of human decency. All Dems should recognize this - that an alignment with such an evil political party can't be let to define what is "moderate" or "center" in political discourse. All Dems should recognize this - that the Republican "base" is big money in the form of investment capital and that there's no way a Dem can reasonably "abstract social issues from economic issues", as third-way politics asks of us. To say nothing of abstracting economic issues from issues regarding the MIC and a foreign policy established on the principal of eternal war.

It's all part of the same thing and Trump/Cruz are only the most nasty faces of it, in today's political news.
