Rival, I don't think we've spoken.
I for one do not believe that the Democrats or Republicans give a whit for the average American.
No one gets into politics for the good of humankind. As you said, it's for money, power, ego, etc.
However, I find that there are those here who make post after post spouting the most inane party-line BS.
I take it by spells to counter that trend. I don't think it makes any difference overall, maybe in small ways.
But sometimes, a small pebble shifting either creates or stops a landslide, yes? Small moves?
Sometimes inanity has to be countered to bring balance of a sort, don't you think?
Here, that often means holding up the "Democrat/liberal/progressive" side of the tarp.
But it's all shadow-play, I'd be the first to say.
