Some... are paying attention.  There is still perhaps too much of "give it to me instead".  Good nonetheless.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

They blame poor OPapaDoc but Saul Alinsky goes blameless.  And apparently so does Rahm.

Come on - do you think most of them have a clue who Alinsky is?

I find it encouraging - it's not likely to shift voting patterns much, but annoy them enough and they'll stay home instead of voting. As has been said many times - failure to vote for the one you are most likely to vote for is a vote for the other side.

All that and a buck fifty will get you a cup of coffee.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
