You are nothing but an ATM to the Democratic Party. Daily Kos is a cash cow they pander to only during election years because of the money you can generate for their campaigns. And once you have secured their seats, they no longer return your calls, and your emails are returned with generated noreply responses. They do not care what you think, they only want you for your money.
Once they have what they want, they do not feel the need to comply with the wishes of the ones who sent them there. You are irrelevant in their eyes since they have no need for fund raising this year. If they cared, if they truly cared what the netroots wanted, they would act on the principles of those who canvassed, those who worked their phones, those who gave them money.
They don’t. You are just a typing ATM machine to them, and nothing more.
If they cared,
They would have repealed the USA Patriot Act.
They would have repealed the Bankruptcy Act.
They would have restored habeas corpus.
They would have repealed the Military Commissions Act.
They would have reformed the Prescription Drug Act
They would have repealed the Clear Skies Act.
They would have reformed the Farm Bill.
They would have dealt with the budget by now.
They would have crafted a withdrawal plan, ANY PLAN, to get out of Iraq.
They would be supply our troops with legitimate body armor, made camel packs standard issue and fast-tracked the MARP into production to replace the vulnerable Humvee. They would have increased veterans benefits, they would have REALLY dealt with the Walter Reeds of the land and they definitely would have protected the troops from the back-door drafts. They would actually be supporting the troops.
They would have repealed or reformed No Child Left Behind.
They would have restored all points of the Geneva Convention.
They would have issued subpoenas to the DOJ.
They would have issued subpoenas for warrantless domestic wiretapping.
They would have issued subpoenas for intelligence gather before the war.
They would have issued subpoenas for corruption in non-bid contracts in Iraq.
They would have helped New Orleans by now.
They would have reformed the student loan fiasco.
They would be pro-active in protecting the environment.
They would be pro-active in protecting worker’s rights.
They would be pro-active in ethics reform.
They would be pro-active in health care reform.
They would be pro-active in restoring our nation’s infrastructure.
They would be pro-active in developing non-carbon emitting power grids.
They would be pro-active in developing non-carbon emitting transportation.
They would be pro-active in restoring faith in the ballot box.
They would be pro-active in restoring faith in the American dream.
They do not care, they have done none of this. They only care about how much money you can put in the war chest. You are just a cash cow they milk every two years and then go about on their merry way.
They are laughing at you. They are laughing at you because you believe you have a place at the table. They are laughing at you because you believe that by supporting them, change will come. They are laughing at you because you bought their pandering hook, line and sinker.
The only power you have is the power of the purse for their campaigns. Get their attention.
BOYCOTT ALL FUNDRAISING FOR SITTING MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHO USE YOU AS A CASH COW.
Boycott them now, then I bet you get their attention.
Not a single penny more for these people, unless you enjoy being laughed at.
