39. The corporatism has taken over our party...
We are the in the majority. We have the Presidency. And yet--we don't have Habeas Corpus.
We have immunity for the telcos. Bush and Cheney will never be held accountable. We're
dealing with healthcare reform that has no reform--it's just a big paycheck for the insurance
companies and it is revolting!

We can't do it within the party--because our party has been ravaged by people who are not
upholding the basic tenant of our party. They're owned by the corporations.

You can be loyal to the Democratic party--but step outside of it to enact change. It seems
impossible to make change 'within."

Who are the Democratic politicians who are standing up and speaking out against this corporate
corruption--and screaming as loud as we are about the injustice and demanding change????

The system is broke.
