30. What's new about political death struggles except, regardless of the civil war,
the USA has had relatively little conflict after the genocide of the American Indian and old border wars with Mexico and Spain and purchases from France, Russia, and Mexico.

I hear every day at DU that the GOP is on self-destruct mode.

I am a long term Democratic liberal that realizes we live in a mixed capitalist-socialist economy and that is just fine with me.

The current status of the USA is appalling on many levels. I will vote Democratic Party (and my local elections are fine except never again DiFi as Senator). I don't understand why Pelosi took impeachment off the table.

I do understand POTUS Obama. As as soon as Obama started making appointments, he revealed his nature (bought or organic) as neo-liberal and counter to the wishes of most of the grass roots of his own Party (and interests of the USA and World in favor of a financial-family-croney elite) and confirmed the "worst" via media to Democratic opposition (GOP, Tea Party, Libertarian, racists).

I will vote for POTUS Obama in 2012 given no other choice and was a strong supporter in 2008 of a candidate that lacks integrity but is charismatic.

Cobell vs Salazar claimed and sold as a "win" is the sealing wax on American Indian genocide aided by short term Indian leaders that sold out their own People for immediate cashflow on at best $0.01 on the dollar. The largest class action lawsuit in USA history that was for Indian claims against BIA mismanagement and fraud of Indian Trust lands over 100 plus years was settled and some Indians smiled but the entire settlement is less than what is due some individual Tribes. This lawsuit settled all financial claims by Indian Nations for fraud by the Federal government and collected claims over decades.

I am aghast that such a cynical blindspot could occur at DU or among those that are American Indian or express solidarity.
