12. There is no such thing as a whole Democratic Party. I know that the hubris of the Democraic Elite

 

Leadership thinks the rest of us should just bow down and fall in line but they don't know true Democrats very well. There is a huge split in the party with the Progressive Wing that does support the middle class and working class and then there is the Wing of the Party that worships Citizens United and the big money of the billionaires and Wall Street.

The Progressive Wing doesn't like wars, the Patriot Act, domestic spying and drone killing, while the Corporate Wing likes the tight control of the Patriot Act and domestic spying.

The Progressive Wing supports whistle blowers and all that dare speak truth to power, while the Corporate Wing wants those that dare speak truth to power tortured and severely punished.

The Progressive Wing doesn't like Prisons for Profit and the militarization of our local police while the Corporate Wing likes the tough control.

The Corporate Wing controls the Media and propagandizes the public into believing that they need to give up their freedoms and liberties for the weak-assed promise of security.
