    I to say this. I know that this will not be popular but it needs to be said.

    I have seen this happen many times with progressives. They have a good solid goal and then start dividing over silly issues of procedure or personality. Monty Python Life of Brian comes to mind. The Fight between the " The Judean People's Front" and "The Peoples Front of Judea"

    We are not like the right. On the right they just want to know who to hate, who is in charge and take their marching orders.

    Most Left wingers are very intelliegnet, articulate good souls who like to respect everyone. These are great qualities unfortunately, it sometimes makes for a decided lack of action. Lot's of debate and little action does not make for social change. At some point their needs to be a setting asside of deabte and arguing and get on with the goal.

    For Gods sake, do not get into divisions and infighting until Walker has moved out. Please keep you eyes on the prize.

      Last year was not, by any standard, characterized by "little action" .

      Though your premise that left-leaning people articulate their positions well is fitting, your allusion to any "decided lack of action" just doesn't fit with how we earned the right to be having this discussion.

      In 2011 Wisconsin, the left's grassroots were not only the impetus for launching Walker's recall in the face of dithering by United Wisconsin and the DPW, they were the ones who's sustained action through two rounds of recall petition circulation, and a round of campaigning for the Senate recall elections, made this next recall election a reality.

      Yes, we're having a discussion, but this is no place to consider factoring in any "lack of action".
