13. If you Work for a Living,
...never, EVER send contributions to the DSCC or the DCCC.
They WILL use your money AGAINST your Economic Interests.
They use your contributions to fund Conservative Blue Dog candidates
even in local Democratic Primaries.

The DSCC and the DCCC have absolutely NO BUSINESS messing with local Democratic Primary Elections.

"Have you contributed any money to the DSCC? Some of it went to help reelect ole Ben, the Democrat who, year after year after year, votes most frequently with the GOP on the important issues of the day-- like Choice. He's vehemently opposed to women making decisions about their own health... just like Republicans are. According to the Progressive Punch crucial votes score, Nelson's lifetime voting record shows that he's been with the GOP just over 55% of the time. Even imagine your DSCC contributions were going for that?

The DCCC is even worse. They spend almost all of your contributions on bolstering Blue Dogs who are forever tugging the caucus rightward and then voting with the Cantor or Boehner.

THIS is the mechanism that the conservatives have used to hi-jack the Democratic Party!
The Pollyanna's who sing "All you have to do is get Liberals elected in local elections"
have No Fucking Idea that you have to FIGHT the funding & power of the National Democratic Party and the White House to get Real "Democrats" elected in local elections.

I had the unpleasant experience of witnessing the DCCC's treachery
in the Minnesota Democratic Primary 2005 where the DCCC used MY donations to crush the campaign of a local, grassroots, Liberal Democrat.
(Rahm was the Chairman of the DCCC at that time,
and that is when I developed my deep, personal loathing for that piece of filth
Obama later appointed as his CoS.

let me repeat:
If you Work for a Living,
never, EVER donate to the DSCC or the DCCC.
They WILL use your money against you!

You will know them by their WORKS,
not by their excuses.
