28. "The candidate that taps into that resource, wins."
I agree completely!! Why don't the dems see this? Every election they tell us that they have to swing to the center because of the undecided voters. Fuck the undecideds! Fuck 'em! Any person who can't decide between Kerry & Bush or Obama & McCain is clearly a person who has no convictions. Why do we cater to these people, this very small group, & give them the power to sway our platform?

I'm sick of supporting a party that doesn't represent me. Yes, I hate the batshit crazies in the repub party & they scare the crap out of me. But I don't know how many more times I can vote for a party that won't stand up for me, a party that constantly capitulates to repubs, even when we have the majority. If the dems would go back to populist policies that truly represent We the People, instead of selling out to the corporations, I think they would find democratic voter registration would increase.

Sadly, it's now a Catch-22 situation. Because they have no credibility anymore, the People aren't going to vote for them just because they tell us they will represent us. So it would take a few election cycles for them to prove they mean what they say. But knowing they don't have those votes now, they don't support populist policies. :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:
