Agreed. The Dems have done such a poor job with branding, messaging and the game of politics, that I suspect they are losing on purpose. Otherwise, it is too incredibly inept to explain.
Sort of an Oligarchy "good cop-bad cop" scenario. Repubs's (big voice) - "We will have corporate rule . You will call it freedom and you will like it."
Dems (tiny voice) "We are fighitng our little hearts out to stop corporate rule, but they are just too big and powerful, its not our fault..."
Meanwhile- corporations become people and people become resources. The super rich stay super rich and powerful. No one is to blame ...
