  •  Folks, we have to grab that pendulum and shove (5+ / 0-)

    it with all we got in the correct direction.

    It isn't going to shift towards our way without a major movement, and we have to marshall the issues which help coalesce a majority groundswell, and a momentum that's impossible to deny.  Women's rights seems it should be a relatively easy 51% of all voters (all female ones), plus the fair number of men who support these rights, maybe another 25-30% of voters at worst, but at best may be more.  We should have 80% of voters except we have fundamentalists & pro-Lifers twisting the minds of around 30% to 40%.  Moving the pendulum means we need to do some deprogramming.  If we can deprogram 5%, election results would shift enough to move the pendulum.  If we can deprogram 10% we get enough momentum to retake the nation.  But we'll need another 10% at that point to rebuild all the infrustructure damaged over the last 3 decades.

    When life gives you wingnuts, make wingnut butter!
