The last Democratic Debate was an outspoken, raucous triumvirate of speaking truth to the power and mistakes of a team of rivals, that pin-balled almost every issue on the minds of both the brave and the fear mongered.

Republican bluster and derision was replaced by Democratic passion and decisiveness, and even conservatives were the beneficiaries of clear thinking, mutually respectful civil discourse (until O'Malley's age faux pas), though letting go of Cold War thinking is a worthy gauntlet to throw down on history's fields of dishonor.

Although tremendously moved by the Senator's burning passion, I miss the pragmatism component. Even Obama publically admitted he had to accept contributions from those too big to fail everything, except American poor, unemployed, underemployed, Middle Class, and even gated community inhabitants, who think themselves safe from that tiny, luxurious, elitist, economic minority, using us as K. Street footstools.

BTW passionate undecided twenty somethings, sex discrimination is NOT outlawed in the U.S. Constitution, and, if you're looking for promised perfection with quick and easy solutions, just ask the diminished Right to diminish student loans.

If you've been too posed or paused by selfies and if it bleeds it leads TV Media to know the difference, December's Democratic Debate was a class act, and a truer reflection of what American character was, before the Military Industrial Complex became the troth at which International oil/war/pharmaceutical corporations dip for dripping profits.

Although Lincoln may have come closest, politicians, like Wall Street CEOs and seemingly too big to jail banksters have never been saints -- not George Washington, not the Roosevelts Teddy & Franklin, nor the Kennedy brothers, and certainly not the anti-American shrubs, Prescott, George H. W. and #43 GWB.

So when will we learn to just say no to those who:

appeal to our lowest and basest inhumanity

can only spout repetitive vague catchy phrases, slogans and platitudes

practice: repeat a lie loudly, long enough, and it becomes the truth

embrace foreign leaders who kill dissenters

have peaceful protestors forcibly removed from campaign rallies

pit Americans against each other

incite violence

poison our water, food, neighborhoods, Golden Rule

defame the promise of Lady Liberty
