Democrats are no Better

Democrats frequently portray themselves as a progress party. True, they are marginally better than the Republicans, but not much. In spite of the rhetorical differences between the two, there exist only minor policy distinctions. Walter Mondale's campaign manager, Bob Beckel illustrated the point well on Fox News recently. Speaking about Julian Assange, Beckel declared "this guy's a traitor, he's treasonous, and he has broken every law of the United States. And I'm not for the death penalty, so...there's only one way to do it: illegally shoot the son of a bitch." Obviously, Beckel does not know what he is talking about. An Australian cannot be guilty of treason or being a traitor against the United States and that the Justice Department has so far failed in it extensive search to find a single American law Assange has broken. However, the more remarkable issue is that a prominent member of America's "progressive" party is openly calling for the murder of his political opponents.
