    "I will do whatever I can to fight the kind of plan being described in news accounts today"

    really? will you work to primary any Democrat in the House or Senate who votes for a bill that cuts Social Security / Medicare / Medicaid? will you withhold your support - donations, time, whatever - from any such Democrat in the general election?

    if a politician asks herself, "What will happen to me if i ignore these people?" and the answer is "Nothing.", how much is she likely to care what they think or say or do?

    will you refuse to be persuaded by accounting tricks and smokescreens that try to tell us, "don't worry everything will be all right in the end, it's not as bad as you think, trust us"?

    i hope so. i'd like to think so. but so far liberals in general are well into the Six Steps of Uselessness that Greenwald outlined after the election.
