    Therein lies the unfathomable irony of Democrats.

    They keep voting the same way over and over, and they keep falling behind further and further.

    If you think corporations will be stopped from political donations, you're dreaming. They have, can, and will.
    Then this is the biggest reason America is lost.

    And it's down to people like you believeing one party is truly better than the other, stuck on the right wing left wing hamster wheel that will get you nowhere.

    You support plutocracy.

    You support the end of democracy as we know it.

    I'm still arguing about corporate "personhood".

    We have limited corporate political spending since 1976...that is until Roberts decided to ignore history.

    Except that I never vote straight party line, because I know that they're both beyond polluted. Your post indicates that you don't get that yet.

    I don't support a party. I support reality. I support what I know to be true, and what works. I understand that half my country can't get itself out of bed before noon, but instead of placating them, and exploiting them, I look them in the eye and tell them what is real, not what they want to hear.

    One party talks along those lines, but doesn't follow them. However, the other party carries on with no sense of integrity and without shame. It's not a 50/50 crime that's being perpetrated.

    There is a soulless, inherent evil in the Democratic Party today.

    See my response above to Jetboogieman regarding my opinion of the level of corruption in the two parties.

    Property is not represented in a government designed for The People. Even if corporations are taxed (as all property is) there's no such this as taxation without representation for property. Not in such a way as to assume immoral behavior.
