The Democratic Party is supposed to stand up for the little guy.
The Democratic Party is supposed to protect people from, among other things, big businesses that, left unchecked, have a tendency to take unfair advantage of their power and wealth.
Now, you may think the people running Los Angeles are Democrats. After all, they're all registered as Democrats, and they claim to be Democrats.
But they're all phony Democrats. Eric Garcetti, Jan Perry, Wendy Greuel, Antonio Villaraigosa and all the rest are not Democrats at all. They're counterfeits, knock-offs, Democrats in Name Only -- Dino's. They call themselves Democrats because that's what you have to do to get elected in this city.
They don't care about the little guy, or the working single mother, struggling to get by. Rather, they are posers, bought and paid for by the special interests that really run this town. The insiders vying running for mayor are props in a city that is not a democracy, but is instead the poster child for "crony capitalism," where welfare is for the rich, not the poor.
You say you want an example? The L.A. Weekly has a report on the latest example of welfare for the rich. The Spring Street Gang has again chosen to take money away from the city's hard-working taxpayers and hand it to the uber-rich for yet another downtown subsidy.
Is that the action of a Democrat? Or is that a sign that special interests run this town, and have installed their agents in positions of power by passing them off to the public as Democrats?
If you're a Democrat, don't fall for the labels candidates put on themselves. Judge them by their conduct.
