Screw your oligarchy apologism. Neoliberals on both sides are a problem. It’s not about any kind of purity past “will they let industries write their own laws for donations”. That answer is sadly yes far too often on both sides of the aisle. Show us a moderate who consistently won’t put a donor’s interests ahead of the public good. Right now we don’t have ANY OF THOSE. And for God’s sake stop laughing at the diminishment of rural America, talk to their needs and represent them. I don’t want to abandon blue dogs where they’re the best shot. But I sure as hell don’t want to spend $4 million primarying out a progressive who polls well against Toomey so Katie McGinty can lose to him again. Too many examples of this, including the hamstringing of Sanders which you can deny til you die, still happened and he still would have won.
