18. But you can change that
You can get involved in the primaries and elect a better candidate of the same party. We don't have that. We essentially just vote for parties, most of the time it doesn't matter the name of the candidate because he/she will vote in lockstep with the leadership's positions on the issues.

Yanno, when I see roll call votes in the House, and a group usually featuring Kucinich and the Black/Progressive Caucus, standing up against some fascist or pro-corporate piece of legislation. It makes me envious that you have people in the Democratic Party who will not march in lockstep with enabling Bushler.
