Democrats: If you don’t ever have the support needed to build the required infrastructure for your policies, aren’t you just throwing the subjects of your experiment under the bus? You can fault Republicans all you like for not supporting your policies, but it doesn’t change the reality of the situation. These are people’s lives, being lead on by a system that can not and will never fulfill its promises. We need a different route where we’re directly in charge of things and can bypass their gridlocked game. That route will only come about through bottoms up, grassroots decentralization.
