1. The Real Story – Kleptocrats, Plutocrats, Oligarchs, Corporations And Banks
Run America for the benefit of the 1%.
Oops – Forgot that the DNC DLC Third-Way Donor Class is part of the 1%.
Must explain why we never here stories about The Real Story."In America Today, Power Corrupts and Money Corrupts Absolutely" - Anonymous

2. Right Nancy! The Dems values unite us. They are the old FDR values that Bernie
spread around. If the modern day Dems stood behind those values, we wouldn’t have a problem!NEVER FORGET BERNIE WON!

6. It is those values alone that we must show loyalty to, regardless of party
Or lack thereof.
Neither party shares those values and both parties are sucking the people and the land dry even as they poison both. They have differences but both are destroying everything they touch and all for nothing but profits hoarded by those very rare few that do not need or even spend such obscene excess.
They have gone insane and between the two parties they hold all the levers of power, power that is destroying us all, the core values that were sold or perhaps lost, had one thread in common that made them values worthy to follow, to further, and to protect, that is that the levers of power should be used to grow the health, wealth, and future of the entirety of the citizens ruled by those that wield such power.
Many different policies were tried to accomplish the goal of that main thread, some things failed, other things served the people well until abandoned or destroyed, and there were things yet to try that may have done even more to help the entirety of the whole, but those ideas, those values, those policies, both proven to work then discarded and those yet untried have died on the vine withered by avarice so great that it sucked the very water from the soil that fed the vine.
Now they own the water while the vineyard withers and dies not caring that every leaf, grape and root is a life held in their care, we are the vineyard, we need the water, we need to take it back and nourish the land and the people. The values may guide us, but the power eludes us.
There is nothing left but to revolt and take back what belongs to all. It can not be done by bloodshed because they thrive on bloodshed like the vampires they are and such would only strengthen their grip, so we need a different sort of revolution, one of ideals, one of values, one of a common goal to bind us all.
But we must rise, we must do so in great numbers, and we must accept that neither major party holds within the ideals needed to be anything more than a hinderance to us. They lack values and see no value even in life, to them all that lives is a commodity to either profit from or discard lest it somehow absorb some moisture they would hoard, it is there way and it is death.
For us to live, we must hold only to our values and know they are our enemy beyond redemption or capture, the dreamers must awaken and see that both parties are dead, the game of red and blue is a game rigged by the house. Only our values can guide us now, we can support no party, only those that share our values. That does not mean that all still deluded by party are beyond redemption, it only means that the letter must be completely ignored in favor of the values held by a potential ally in the fight.
We fight only for our values now because it is the only way left to survive.
Make no mistake, it is our very lives we are fighting for and quite literally.
“We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust. We must dissent from a nation that has buried its head in the sand, waiting in vain for the needs of its poor, its elderly, and its sick to disappear and just blow away. We must dissent from a government that has left its young without jobs, education or hope. We must dissent from the poverty of vision and the absence of moral leadership. We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.” Thurgood Marshall

3. Recommended to max!

5. Democratic Party: Driving down every road except the one that leads to success.
You know the DNC needs to go into counseling. I mean, big time counseling.

7. They are insane beyond any hope of healing by councilors
They are sociopaths, dangerous ones that can no longer be saved, only locked away to protect others.
Success to them is counted in coin and not electoral victories, they follow a road they think will lead to gold and likely will so have no interest in following any other road, even if it means outward failure.
They understand more than you think. They simply do not care. The road to what you would call success holds no interest to them because it is the road with the least gold and they really don’t concern themselves about where the gold road takes them, even when they know, and they actually often do, that it will lead to lost seats.
There is no way to council a madman away from his or her obsession. If only there were it would be far simpler for us.

9. Of course, what you say is true. The difficulty in realizing and accepting
..the actions of the DNC lies, I believe, in the inherent goodness of the average democratic voter. They expect their leaders to have a smidgen of integrity and not capable of running only after the low hanging shiny fruit.
Either that or perhaps, I’m the one that needs counseling.

10. Anyone that understands the truth could use some counseling
I believe most people are inherently good, unfortunately any one of us can be corrupted by greed, hatred, fear and even faith when it is placed in those unworthy of it.
It is our unfortunate circumstance to be ruled by people so corrupted that their very souls no longer feel empathy, sympathy, or remorse. When people are as corrupted as that, they care nothing for anything but that which has corrupted them.
Having known many people, nearly all of them mere commoners, I believe the majority of them would see their neighbors as well as themselves happy, fed, and taken care of, they are for the most part the humanity that has long been discarded by those now in power.
If there is to be a world where social and economic equality lifts up these good people as they would see others lifted up, it will come from the people that have held onto such humanity. Perhaps enough such people will lead as needed, but those that place their faith in the faithless inhumane corrupt sociopaths in power will have helped end this hope for us all, rather than promote it from among those that deserve such faith which have retained their humanity, empathy, sympathy, and remorse.
We can only look to the uncorrupted and end the cycle of abuse that creates such sociopathic monsters as rule nearly all today.
You are among the good people I speak of, join with others that are as good as yourself and together we may find among ourselves a new brand of leaders as yet uncorrupted to replace the rotted hearts and souls that now rule us to our very extinction.
There is little else to be done sadly.

8. JD knocks another one out of the park
That was a good one. He destroys the democratic party simply by reading their platform word for word.
The good thing is ( through my admittedly anecdotal observations of breakroom talk at work ) is that this fluff resonates with nobody but nobody, save for one hillbot..much to the hillbot’s dismay.
