: I think that things in the US will have to become much worse before any popular movement is born.

SDF: This is a fallacy. As I've pointed out before, bad conditions do not, in themselves, impel people to create popular movements.

Nevertheless, if one wants to create a popular movement, certain political moves will have to be made. Dumping the Democratic Party is one of these moves. The Democrat elite is a bunch of Republicans who think they can blackmail anyone with the least inkling of his or her working-class political self-interest. "You have to vote for us, there is no alternative," the rallying cry of the Democratic Party.


If Gore or Bradley is elected, either will be FAR WORSE than anything imaginable under Shrub (aka Bush Jr.) And it will do NOTHING to create a mass movement.

I will never vote for a Demopublican from here to the grave.
