Why don't you post the same list for the Democratic Party? It's not very different.

Supply it for me and I will... immediately.

But you see the demos are not in such a position of power and so I am going to fixate on the republicans for awhile--you don't mind?

In case you are wondering I am neither demo or repub... I'm a socialist stuck in a two-sided one party system.

I like your moniker, it reminds me a cool musician I used to groove to ... lets see, was it Django Rheinhardt???? something like that (any help?)

Going to visit your site now...
