You are officially the party of the status quo, now. It’s time to start recognizing that, and acting like it. And if you want change, then, well, make change. Don’t whine about it endlessly, especially if you supported corporatist laws with lies and caveats to begin with. And if you don’t want change, stop pretending you do.
The moment of President Obama’s election, the Democratic Party became the Party In Power. It ill becomes the Democrats, and their apologists, and supporters, to complain about the very things they helped do and pass, or are, even now, helping do or pass. For example, don’t try to sell me on how bad Wall Street has become, if out the back door, you are shoveling money at them as if there’s no tomorrow.
Don’t like the Tea Partiers? Good. I don’t either. So stop talking about them as if they are all powerful bullies, terrorizing you. You’re the government now. Grow the fuck up and crush them when and if they become actual domestic terrorists. You supported the means by which to do so. People as supposedly far left as Alan Grayson voted to pass an extension on the Patriot Act .. do you really want me to believe they’re so dangerous and you can do nothing? Oh, but you sure can do a lot about actual liberals who do anything but protest like baby kittens.
Let me remind you of a few things, Democrats. It was your conservative corporatist wing that joined with the Republicans and refused to do anything about insane gun laws that have turned the entire 50 state union into some mockery of the Wild Wild West. Yet now, Democrats talk about Tea Partiers having meetings with guns .. this is your fault.
