    The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

    Using bogeyman tactics are ok for me but not for thee. Always projection.

    FWIW:

    Democrats’ newest midterm pitch: A crackdown on corruption

    Democrats are preparing to highlight allegations of corruption surrounding the Trump administration — and a legislative agenda to prevent future abuses — as they continue rolling out their party platform ahead of November’s midterm elections.

    The first planks of the “A Better Deal” platform, released last year, focused on the party’s economic agenda. Now, with questions about pay-to-play politics swirling around President Trump and his current and former aides, Democrats are set to introduce anti-corruption proposals Monday billed as “A Better Deal for Our Democracy.”

    According to a senior Democratic official familiar with the announcement, the new agenda will include proposals that would eliminate loopholes that allow lobbyists and lawmakers to buy and sell influence without the public’s knowledge. The message: Elect Democrats in November to “clean up the chaos and corruption in Washington.”

    One proposal — which would tighten the federal laws governing lobbying disclosures and foreign-agent registration — responds to the apparent sale of influence by Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal lawyer. According to recently disclosed financial records, Cohen earned millions of dollars from companies that wanted to secure access to Trump’s inner circle in the early days after his 2016 win.

    Democrats are also preparing to highlight an apparent atmosphere of rule-bending, if not rule-breaking, in the Trump administration. Several Trump Cabinet members — including Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, as well as former Health and Human Services secretary Tom Price and former Veterans Affairs secretary David Shulkin — have been subject to official investigations of questionable spending on travel and other expenses.

    It's the old guard vs. the new guard.

    Hard to shake off tradition but we've reached the tipping point so it's game on.....

    The primary system breeds extremism--on both sides.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    I don't believe she was either. I believe she is just a run-of-the-mill politician who had dreams of making history and lining her pockets. I believe she was someone who would change direction in a NY Minute if it bettered her personally.

    The thing is the progressive candidates only won a few victories (granted a few big victories). For comparison, it's not on the level of the Tea Party yet.
