After several years of trying to "retake" the Democratic Party and make it more progressive, today I am giving up and becoming a conservative Democrat. Upon careful consideration, the benefits packages are simply too heavily tilted toward the corporate wing of the party. Check it out:

So really, why would anyone be a progressive Democrat given the different bonus packages that are on offer? I think my move makes a lot of sense. Every Democrat should be a conservative.

In the future, instead of robotically reposting all of these excellent articles, how about organizing them into a permanent hierarchical format, a "Progressive Federalist Papers" of sorts, and just robotically adding Open Threads with links to them?

Motivation: I think Greatest Hits reposts probably aren't a great idea, for both technical and social reasons.

Socially, I think it dilutes the encapsulation of thought represented by the diary, it cheapens the discussion in the comments (because the original comment section is not reposted).

Technically, doesn't reposting potentially split valuable search engine traffic in half for the reposted articles? That is, some people who link to this post may link to the repost, and some to the original post, unnecessarily bifurcating the page rank over time.

Just thinking out loud. Ignore if inapplicable.
