Well we are a nation that also has Mitt Romney as a candidate. Sounds to me like the problem is a hell of a lot bigger than democrats unless you include those who infect the GOP. (like Mittless)

Yes, Romney was the establishment pick for this election year. He represents the financially comfortable class that has controlled the GOP since at least the Grant Administration. These people have a business culture insight on tax policy and economics but view the working middle class with true contempt. I had an uncle who managed to make it good owning a regional trucking company so I no whereof i speak from listening to his contemptuous remarks about the non-country club types of white middle class types. These selfish snobs are happy to be complicit in the destruction of the middle class. That group contains to many people who actually have the temerity to not do what their betters tell them. It is also full of people who attend church for reasons other than socializing for an hour each Sunday. It is also full of people who are ‘stupid’ enough to serve in the armed forces. (My uncle and his family made it clear that ‘smart people don't go to Viet nam (his phrase) while I was on leave before deploying for my first tour there.) The Romney Republicans are very comfortable in exporting the industrial base and replacing the production and manufacturing model of the economy for the consumerism and debt creation version. There are enemies in our own house of that there is no doubt. If we are not to become a banana republic controlled by queers, criminals, banksters , illegals and the Amish then we are going to have to contemplate de facto third party behavior within the shell of the GOP and a willingness to stop being so virtuous and rule obedient as a group.
