I love memes that explain what I've been trying to say all along, but do it so concisely.

This one nails it.

Image may contain: text

P.S.  If there are any people out there who still think that the Democratic Party is progressive, especially after the crap they pulled in the primaries, the "screw you, voters!" disclosures from their lawsuit, the dash to the Big Money Right orchestrated by the Clintonista and Perez AND good 'ol BarryO's making Hillary-esque, big buck speeches to Wall St., then I got some scenic swampland beach front property in Florida I want to talk to you about.

No faux-liberals or progressives we hurt in the making of this post (any butthurt they feel after reading this is all on their own)

Amy, why do you believe that vile epithets and obscene invective are necessary for you to make the case for your posture, position, or perspective...

The meme makes the point as it is presented... The idea or definition of a meme is that it speaks for itself as it is...

That said, believe me, I get it.

Remember, I told you that the American poltical process and system has been rigged against 3rd parties since day one .

It was conceived as a self perpetuating binomial, bicameral entity with the built in balance and inertia against the incursion of a third party "outlier ".

The only issue I have with the post is differentiating between the Democratic leadership and membership. At this point I'd say they're historically out of tune with each other. I'm a lifelong Democrat, having only voted Republican once, and that was because back in 1972 my Republican Comgressman was more liberal than his Democratic challenger, but my opinion of the DNC at the moment isn't a whole lot better than yours. What I would suggest at the moment is an unofficial organization functioning as an alternative DNC and backing actually progressive Democratic candidates. That's what Bernie should really be doing instead of running as an Independent. Don't threaten to walk if the Democratic leadership plays games, just de facto hijack the party. Make the DNC irrelevant. Compete with them for fundraising. Why leave the Democratic Party in the hands of social but not economic liberals? Frankly, as weird as this may sound, I'd even go after the economically progressive rich as donors if there is no quid pro quo. Some of them, like Warren Buffet, have said they aren't taxed enough. I'm sure there are more than a few in Hollywood. 

If the splinter faction is accused of splitting the party, the answer is "No, You're splitting the party. We can prove with poll data that we represent the views of the membership better than you do."

Here's the difference, the last time the Rethugs were for "The People" was in the 1860s through the end of the Gilded Age. Since then, well, the fact there is even a Hoover Institute and it is considered a "Think Tank" says it all. The Dems were the KKK for a long, long time. Only LBJ forcing through the Voter and Civil Rights Acts changed them, into, well, Rethugs.

The Billionaires have been there the whole time, and now, with the help of the Russkies, who far outstrip our technically ability, not when it comes to putting men on Mars but when it comes to stealing credit cards online and faking Redneck news stories they cover some larger percent of your first point and to a smaller percent your second.

As to the third, ANTIFA- time is now. Kick all the bastards out and replace them with Jimmy Stewart clones. The problem? 400 years of whitewashed brainwashing. Thank Dog the access to truth is getting easier for the intelligent folks, unforturnatelly the propaganda has moved from signs over freeways to phone screens bought at Wal-Mart.

I've actually always agreed with your agenda, I do not, and will not believe, Brazil or Clinton or anyone and their dastardly acts, is not the lesser of two evils. Which will kill more people? Duh, The scumbag right of course. You refuse to make a distinction, yet, I don't remember you or your kind in the streets in the 60s when we fought like soldiers against first LBJ's huge mistake and then Nixon's Trump style psychosis. You offer generalities, what is your plan? Again, the election is over so we don't have to argue about how stupid it was to support Stein or Nader anymore. Bigger fish to fry.

Depends which Republicans. In the East there were liberal Republicans into the 1970’s. 

Maui,

I now know what you're talking about and even what you mean when you talk to Vega.

Ron, why do you believe that NOT USING vile epithets and obscene invectives (I can only assume you are referring to the horrible, terrible, vile and obscene word "freakin' "  ::roll eyes:: ) are UNnecessary for you to make the case for my posture, position, or perspective...???  That is how I speak, dude.  If you don't like it then don't listen/read.  To "scold" a grown woman who can speak any fucking way she chooses is paternalistic as hell, so stop it.

Bullshit.  

If you are a card carrying, dues paying member of the Democratic party then you have, at least tacitly, accepted their leadership and control.  To do anything other than flipping them the bird and walking away after the multitude of screwings the Democratic party has given you and its other members time and time and time again is a combination of the textbook definition of insanity and bending over while complaining about people shoving something up your ass AGAIN.

Let me ask you this...  what would it take to make you walk away from the Democrats?  Its not lying (they did that and you're still one), its not cheating (they did that and you're still one), its not corruption (they did that and you're still one), its not stealing (they did that and you're still one) and its not telling you that they can and will do ex-freaking-axtly what ever they damn well please and screw each and every one of their members ((they are DOING that and you're still one).  So tell me...  I really don't get it.
