There is an element of Democratic Party supporters, or should I say self-appointed enforcers who hide in the shrubbery of various social media waiting to pounce on any progressive Democrat who expresses even the slightest displeasure with the current crop of Democratic electeds and their failure to protect and promote traditional FDR style Democratic issues. From my perspective, supporting a party that doesn't unite behind a solid set of values and goals is an exercise in futility. Many of the current crew of Democratic electeds in Congress, the Senate and the Executive branch of our government have morphed into mini-Republicans, embracing GOP terminology, issues and to some extent ideology. Democratic electeds in deeply rooted GOP districts or who want to court GOP voters by becoming pretend Republicans blur the concept of the Democratic brand in the hearts and minds of American voters and weaken the Democratic Party.
Adopting GOP doublespeak words like “job creator” is one thing, Democratic Congressmen and Senators voting with Republicans is another. I like to call Democratic electeds who vote with Republicans and the sycophants who support them – Demorats, because they betray everything that their party should represent! One prime example of Demorats in action was the recent Congressional vote where 28 slimy Demorats joined hands with their fellow corporate owned electeds in the GOP authorizing construction of the Keystone Pipeline. If they can do that, how will they vote on issues like Social Security, Medicare, "free" trade agreements, etc.? I think that you know the answer to that by their track records.
The term two party system implies that each party will vigorously oppose the ideology of the other party and truly represent the wishes of its constituency. When that doesn't happen, democracy itself is in jeopardy and must be protected by a slew of new voices from new parties that are untainted by corporate money.
Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
