I agree with you about that.
Unfortunately, many people don't pay much attention to politics. Such people may have perfectly good reasons for this, like simply not having enough time due to other concerns.
Sometimes they only tune in to the Sunday morning talk shows for their political news, where they are treated to a whole smorgasborg of Centrist thought. To a person who doesn't follow the day-to-day drama of politics, they may think the problem is simply that the two sides can't get along. They might like to position themselves as "above the fray."
To this kind of person, a "Third Way" sounds pretty good.
Like I've said many times we will be destroyed from the inside by the right wing nuts and the evangelical Christians. I don't fear Isis or any of the Arab terrorist groups I fear the evangelical Christians and the white hate groups here at home.
There may be another option. One that a lot of us progressives are planning on utilizing. If the DNC does to Bernie what they did to Dean and Kucinich then vote Green. Jill Stein is a much more progressive candidate than Hillary will ever be.
As a country, and a species, we can't afford to engage in these prepackaged political charades any more. As long as we buy into the shackles that we can only vote Dem or Repub then the aristocracy will continue to get their agendas handed to them on silver platters, served by wage slaves.
The two party system is no longer a rut, it's become a grave.
I tried to warn 'em that nails was not the right way to stick all of those teabags to their foreheads, but would the listen? No, they would not.
All of whom? The concubines, the slaves, or the passing strangers?
