    And you know what? I actually don't mind it, one bit. The fissures were there all along.

    And the reality is that uggly commies...err lib'ruls, will be blamed for 2014 and 2016. The problem is...that threat is not working anymore.

    The country is not conservative. The elites are. The elites used to understand that you have to give something to the people from time to time...they are really are not. In fact, they are taking away fundamental rights. So 2014...the ones to blame will be the elites, in particular the party elite of the Democratic Party who has chosen to turn a blind eye to these concerns.

    It's not because Democratic Party elites hate lib'ruls (some do). They decided to become the party of business...that's cool...the US goes through this every so often. Just be open about it. Nature abhors vacuums, so do political systems.

    This is a natural evolution in American political history, it's time for the people, the base, to smell the coffee and realize the party of business does not want the lumpen proletariat anymore.

    Local Labor councils are starting to abandon electoral politics as the end all of the system. Electing pols is no longer their highest priority, why? Card check is often well as free trade agreements. Behind closed doors both parties are now lumped together.

    Then we have the current NSA kerfunkle and the name calling on all civil libertarians.

    What I am seeing is the beginnings of what both parties fear: voter revolts.

    Oh I expect acid responses, it goes with it. I am the enemy of the party, for I am an uggly and dangerous lib'rul.
    Some really delusional replies, like this one...

    What I am seeing is the beginnings of what both parties fear: voter revolts. the disaffected DU's are going to vote Tea Party? Pleeeaase! Not buying it. Not one bit.

    Looking at all that the government has done to trample their rights - they will nonetheless conclude "What difference does it make" and vote Hillary. Members of the DU are not particularly known for their independent thinking... just sayen.

    And so it goes.
