    It really is time to stop being victims. If we have policy positions on our side, then we need to turn those positions into votes. Clearly we have yet to match the sustained intensity of the Right.

    Just look at the rec list. Do you think anyone wants to listen to people who are waving "good-bye America"? Americans love winners,we have to start winning, and that means efforting and showing up everywhere. Fox News and Citizens United cannot bolt your front doors, or sew yours mouths shut, or keep you from visiting with other citizens. They cannot stop us from mastering the use of social media, in fact, social media should make it easier for us to compete with the Right's messaging.

    It is sad that in this reality-based community, we many cannot accept that the country isn't yet as progressive as we love to believe. It is time we project strength and unity instead of always being divisive and looking for self-defeat.

    "There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.".. Buddha
