This reflects and sums-up my own thoughts (with one exception) on this subject as of late. I have seen enough evidence that such a change within the party is needed, between:

- what the Obama administration **coughHoldercough** did to uphold a corrupt status quo in big business, merely slapping them on the wrist to appease the public,

- the democrats cowardly, and predictably disastrous, mid-term election campaign strategy,

- and the rather (for lack of a better description) right-wing legacy the lame duck dems are content to forge in their final days.

As for the exception in this article, I don’t agree with Atkins that there is nothing wrong with the teabaggers’ tactics, only their aims. He mentioned threatening to shut down the government, but I didn’t catch the part where he mentions threatening to default on the national debt. Not only is the debt ceiling a line we shouldn’t cross, its a line that shouldn’t exist. Stupid debt ceiling… Anyway, that strikes me as a big oversight on David Atkins’ part.

It’s called the Green Party.

Unlike the Teahadi, they have minimal money and make little impact.

Unbending fanatical idealogical zealots of any stripe is never a good way to go.

re: #3 missliberties

You mean as opposed to what we’ve got now?

If you think today’s democrats are truly any different from republicans, you are fooling yourself. (each word is a separate link)

I don’t want or need any “unbending ideologues.” But the same goes for the corrupt cowards in today’s democrat party who, for all their posturing, are clearly complacent with corporate culture. Surely, between these two points we can find some people who give a damn about us, have spines, and at least an ounce of dignity. There needs to be a new wave.

The Dems and the Reps are the same, that’s why you see regressive policies like anti-women, anti-choice, anti-science, anti-immigrant, etc. happening equally in both Dem and Rep States.
