  •  Party Activism Must Drop Below Full Time. (7+ / 0-)

    We have to follow the rightwing's example and being working independently after each election on creating better Democrats and better issues. 40 years of GOTV for the election followed by pressuring existing office holders has got us to the point where both parties talk about cutting the most successful and basic services for our seniors who can no longer fend for themselves.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"

    •  Sorry, I don't believe that for a minute (4+ / 0-)

      The GOP never lets up. They work their fundie base every Sunday. They work their "He's comin' fer yer gunz!" crowd at every gun show. They work non-stop.

      And our side has been pathetic in activism. That is until recently. We saw some of it in Wisconsin. But we can't claim the 99% movement, they have to take this party over. Once that happens, say "Hello" to a much, much better Democratic party. A true "people's party". Lord, that will get the wingnuts worked into a lather.

      To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.
