Why are so many well-meaning people so attached to a fake opposition party that works against their interests?
It is the day of the big sports game. You root for your favorite team. They are more or less the same morally, more or less the same skill-wise, and practice more or less the same amount. Yet in order to feel a part and live through them, you create - the key word being create - meaning attributing to them superiority over the other team. You see in them what you want to see in them.
The same applies to the game of Democrap vs. Rethug/Repug. No matter how similar they are people will turn them into opposites. They go with the fake opposition party with name recognition not because they are any different, but because they want to be part of the competition, they want help, they want change. They therefore desperately create in their minds traits in the Democraps that they wish they had, but that in reality do not exist.
...And the Democraps in power know this and play into this by making empty promises, while turning around and supporting the corporate terrorists once the election is over and no one is looking.
People wake up! There are no saviors in our government. It is time to take back YOUR government, instead of taking the easy way out and supporting the fake opposition party.
