Where are the real Democrats? Here is the run down of current votes...
75 Dems voted for Energy bill, and 15 for CAFTA, and 73 for bankruptcy

Number of legitimate excuses for any of them: 0

Kicking their asses in the primaries: priceless


Its time to oust the DLC'ers and elect some damn progressive folks into office! Let the primaries begin!

2. No support the moderates... Rise up against the corporate-owned!
Edited on Thu Jul-28-05 05:54 PM by calipendence
The DLC, and many of the Dems that follow in line with their strategies, does NOT necessarily OWN the moderate vote. They ARE owned by corporate sponsors though, much of whose agenda doesn't support moderates any more than it supports us as progressives. Let's make it clear we're after those Dem politicians owned by corporations. We need NATIONAL passage of Clean Elections propositions to help us rid ourselves of this corrupt filth!

4. They weren't DLCers
What was it 3 of the CAFTA voters? I've checked the other two as well, it was more Blue Dogs than DLC.

If you want to target specific districts and support different candidates, how about you do it on left/Green policies. Be FOR something. Then everybody in those districts can see the difference, and the Democrats can decide which set of policies they prefer and which will beat the Republican.
