The Problem with the Democrats

What is wrong with the Democratic Party? With a wave of populist revolt and disgust with the corporate elite and Wall Street, the Democrats continue to do the will of their corporate masters. From health care "reform" to regulating Wall Street and challenging corporate power, the Democrats are losing an historic opportunity to be a PROGRESSIVE party of CHANGE.

George Gilder spells it out:
We're Screwed on Everything From Health Care to the Economy if The Dems Don't Shape Up

Progressives Have a Chance to Dominate American Politics for the Next 40 Years

There is a right-wing populist backlash sweeping Europe and the same thing could happen in the U.S. if the Democrats and Obama do not offer a PROGRESSIVE Populist alternative to the right-wing racist, nationalist populism that is growing in the U.S. Trust in corporations and Wall Street is at an all-time low, now is the time to take on the corporate elite and save the American working class from the 30 year war on labor began by Ronald Reagan. The alternative may be a resurgence of FASCISM.

I think you answered your own question, Jim: "the Democrats continue to do the will of their corporate masters." That's their priority as a capitalist political party.
