    NOBODY really wants to talk about that.

    IMHO, it's very difficult to then believe that there will be any chance at all of ever seeing progressive legislation.

    No amount of manipulation, protest, etc... is going to remedy this.

    The amounts of money are simply too large.  We either start to take some power more directly, or deal with the product of not doing that.

    What we are seeing right now, in this Presidency, is the product of not doing that.

    Howard Dean started with a 50 state progressive strategy.  Notice how he's been shuttled away?  Exactly.

    This is on us, if we want resolution.  Who else to do it?

    IF THEY ARE GOING TO SCREW THE PEOPLE, MAKE THEM OWN IT. #opengeekorg
