Really Disappointed in you,Democrats,really...

I guess I thought that this election would be different. Democrats would be talking a storm about the issues ,the policies,the caring,the truth, the transparency ,and the honest feeling that we don't care and will not care how much money a candidate will be raising because we care about the person and not the purse!
I was wrong. Here we go ,boasting about who got more donations, more donors, more donors who donated under $200.-, donors above.
What happenned to"We will educate ourselves on the candidates and we will choose the one who shows and proves to us that she/he care."?What happenned to who has the best healthcare policy? Would Michael Moore approve? Who is answering questions about the world and diplomacy?Who really cares about our high schoolers and has done something about it? Who is the first candidate who has announced the support for Open Source Voting Machine? Does anyone know who that candidate is? Probably some, others no because they are drowning in the number game which I thought we were not going to play.
Open Source Voting Machine-the thing that we are screaming to have.
What else do Democrats want?....Oh,yeah, getting out of Iraq?
Who has repeatedly, over and over again,taken a stand about this?
Isn't this what we want, someone taking a bold ,strong as a rock-will-not-budge stand on getting out of Iraq? Yes Democrats and Republicans voted for wanting this stand, in the last election.
Who in Congress hesitated before taking a vote on funding for that war? Did that show leadership? Is that ok with you?
What about corporate money,corporate support?
Who best shows that they will accept absolutely no corporate,PAC or lobbyist money? But also who has confronted the Pharmaceutical Companies,Insurance Companies and Agribiz Companies?
Anyone knows that confronting the Big guys means you will be severely attacked back.Yet who has decided that it was time someone did it?
You don't want the overpowering pharmaceticals,you don't want the high insurance and you don't want to support factory farming!!!Yet do you support that candidate?
Who has been the candidate who has been the FIRST to respond to MoveOn,Progressive Democrats of America and DFA? The groups that are actively working at grassroots level to bring back our Democracy.Not that this fact is so important...but it does show that that candidate prioritizes those groups.
I guess I thought Democrats would be banning together and saying, yes the campaign money is important but not that important. What is important are the issues the candidates stand for,the boldness ,the I'm-not-scared-of-corporate-America.I will stand up to them during the campaigning.
Yes we need change,but who is the one who is showing us NOW what they would do, and who has everything to loose for it.
America, Who is the candidate that truly understands every woman and what she risks loosing,every child and what that child risks loosing and every man and what that man risks loosing...
...but are you paying close attention or are you swimming in the glory of the number game....
