    first you claimed that just reporting the truth would be enough to make the progressive view win every time and you were 100% sure of it.

    now you are claiming that no one is running on what the people want, and there's no plan to get us out of this mess (i disagree) and politicians aren't offering anything to get the voters flocking to them.  apparently no one is progressive enough for you.  fine.  you are not alone in that.

    i'm not browbeating voters with how stupid they are.  I'm just acknowledging that they are responding to the disinformation they are fed.  I want them to hear different information and I am not sure how to do that.  But we all have to figure out a way between now and November.

    2008 was an anomaly as elections go.  If young voters and all those first time voters turn out as they did in 2008, everything will be fine.  But they did not turn out in 2010, so my fingers are crossed hoping they will get re-energized for a presidential election year.

      Two different things: the info available to the public at large; the program put out by the Democratic Leadership to motive the public at large, reflecting their desires.

      Whether the first happens or not, the second would change the way politics are reported.

      We're Democrats: we can hold two ideas in our minds at once.

      I don't think you can site me one instance where anyone in Dem leadership has said that they are going to end job-offshoring; break the bankers; stop the destruction of the middle class; make a Manhattan-project scale change to kinetic energy; tax speculative trading; ending the War of National Suicide; connecting banker corruption and the Wars with the increasing impoverishment; or the other things on my list. Those things which would draw voters in hordes.

      I'm certain you can't, because it never happened.
