The Democratic Party has been redefined by the Progressive fringe. There is no room for moderate or fiscally reasonable voices in the Party of Karl Marx. Cuban style Collectivism in the goal now. Massive Govt, massive taxes and reduced personal choice, freedoms, and opportunities are the future.

When the History of the Rise and Fall of the United States is written, and translated from spanish into chinese, the libs and dems will get full credit for the ruination of this country. The pages will be littered with the names of Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Obama, biden, Waters,Jackson, Waxman, Rangle, Boxer, Kerry, Kennedy(hic), wassermanshultz, and a host of usual characters.

Look at it this way. If they shut down the Government we will save billions of dollars a day. It is a win win.

Pelosi all ready got rid of all the centerist Democrats in the 2010 mid term elections. 67 of them. They were too patriotic to support her Orwellian Nightmare agenda.

TODAY ONE SIZE FITS NOBODY?.today we have more types of everything that panderes to everybody, and nobody ,at the same time.a diverse society where nobody has a place , can afford it,or wants one.cities and communities that cant find their way to benefit the whole ,unless their a part of a group..and a government as far away from reality as it gets .because the whole has become a part of a hole ..and its been going on for decades....or so it seems
