Glenn Greenwald has the penultimate post regarding the Democratic Party’s betrayal of America with the recent FISA vote.
For those of you still clinging to the illusion that the Dems are actually salvageable and worth salvaging, allow me to state once again that as long as Congressional Dems and those in the DNC think you’ll stay with them no matter how many times they stab you in the back, they have no incentive to stop stabbing you in the back.
This is the party that refused to stand up to Bush, who is not only a lame duck but the most unpopular president in American history. Do you really think that all the emails/letters/phone calls/petitions/threats to withhold campaign donations in the world are going to sway the DNC and Congressional Democrats after a surrender like that? If so, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’ll sell you for a song.
Cut your losses. Join a party that actually espouses and fights for liberal ideals and liberal policies. Join a party that is the only viable alternative to the Dems. Stop choosing the lesser of two evils because you think you have nowhere else to go; that’s what Howard Dean, Donna Brazile, and Barack Obama are counting on.
