    Oh, goody gumdrop. Another one of these threads.

    The main fallacy being espoused here is that the Democratic Party represents the interests of "the left."

    I already asked a very specific question in the OP. If you want to keep crying about the question we aren't going to get anywhere.

    There are plenty of leftists who aren't in the govt. And they seek to exert influence. Are these leftists becoming more authoritarian?
