How many DUers have left or been booted because of DU politics? [View all]

Having been here since 2004 I notice big changes over the years. The most fervent lefties are gone. Someone like me, who is on the verge of being booted, may just give up and leave. I'm not an absolutist. I'm neither a moderate or a liberal. I consider myself a progressive who is frustrated by our inability to articulate disagreement without breaking some rule that seems to err on the conservative side.

IMHO the rules are hurting us in the first election post the nullification of our Constitution. Evidence of that is: Trump every day, Mitch McConnell every day, Wiliiam Barr every day, Gorsuch & Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS and the SCOTUS itself - Bush v Gore/DC v Heller/Citizens United and because Putin helped trump win the EC*. (The EC, which did not fulfill its duty by being a check on the popular vote has not been articulated by our party.) These are not issues the MSM will address during the debates. The ramifications of that negligence, I feel, trickles down into DU and negatively effects us ALL, let alone the country as a whole.

All the above have contributed to twist the Constitution out of recognition. Yet here in the Democratic Underground, whose name has never bern more appropriate, we obey strictly enforced rules until we just CAN'T because we are being driven insane by an insane adversary and the thieves he has surrounded himself with.

Don't think I can take much more. I am curious to know if anyone else notice a culling of our herd? I will not be missed in this community, but others are already sorely missed. And I feel certain others will not contribute to such a tightly knit group. This is all very sad to have to post. I do it very hesitantly and with a heavy heart.

P.S. Big shout out and thanks to Kpete, who has kept me coming back for more.
