176. What good has electing more Democrats done for us?
Seriously look at Bush's last two years in office and you will see that some of the very worst legislation he signed into law was passed by a Democratic Congress. Warantless wiretapping and the Military Commisions act were approved by a Democratic Congress. We have tried electing Democrats, the problem is that Democrats side with Republicans once they are elected and then the party does everything they can to fight off primary challengers. Occupy Wall Street is far more effective at bringing about change than the party of Ben Nelson is.
