Democrats: Beware the Loss of the "Lesser-Evil" Choice

Well, it seems that the labor movement is catching on to the "lesser-evil" copout.  (Pertinent link to follow.)
Too bad, Dems.  Y'all may need to exercise some integrity (Wow!) now to convince voters that you'll actually stand by them once they pull your lever.
You had a majority in both houses of Congress and the presidency in 2009 and 2010, but you boosted the stakes in Afghanistan BEYOND THE BUSH LEVEL (to zero advantage except to the weapons lobby), and you have not brought one criminal bankster to the bar of justice in the face of the bankruptcies, homelessness, economic chaos and human misery they've caused, and you have increased the thuggery by the TSA in groping mothers, taking xray shots of grandmothers' pubic details, and one supposes can we can assume that you'll support an extension of the Bushco "Patriot Act," thereby putting to shame the wildest dreams of the Gestapo and the KGB, not to speak of insulting the Constitution and disgracing the future history of the world's once oldest republic.
Most of us fairly intelligent folks know that most Republicans do not merit our trust or our votes, and this allowed you to reap the benefit of the "lesser-evil" persuasion.  But now you're losing it, Dems, as many more every day are catching on and seeing the choice between you and the Republicans as a "same-evil" choice.
Below you'll find a link that reflects union disillusionment.  And more of us are getting on to you every day. 
What do we want?  We want a government of Intelligence, Goodwill, Courage and Integrity.  You may snigger at that proposition if you will, but you will discover that you can afford that reaction only at your peril.
The good people of America are catching on.  We know that we face a tough challenge and that it will take some time, but we will prevail, and it appears that we'll need to do so without either of the current "lesser-evils." 
...Bye Bye, Dems....Rafe Pilgrim (a former lifelong Dem myself)

Rafe Pilgrim, after "a life largely wasted on hard honest work," found himself a jungle of turkey oak, scrub pine and giant palmettos up a dirt road running east of Crystal River, Florida, which neither school busses nor the U.S. Postal Service dare (more...)
