  •  It's a tough row to hoe (7+ / 0-)

    I've been all about non-partisan progressive-left, independent grassroots organizing for a very long time.  It's why I was so excited by the Occupy movement.  Why I was so unsurprised by its suppression, largely by Democratic mayors unleashing our paramilitarized police state powers.  Why I wasn't the least surprised by the political murder of ACORN by the right while the Dems who had benefited so greatly over the years from ACORN activism stood by and didn't raise a finger in defense.

    Independent base-building and organizing is tough as hell in a society so saturated with disincentives to political participation outside the "official channels", but it's the only hope we have.

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
