  •  Our Leaders are Failures (5+ / 0-)

    One of the more dispiriting things about being a dem, progressive, liberal, leftist, etc. take your pick is how awful the leaders. Maybe some of them are nice, or fun to have a beer with--but nearly all are complete failures as far as stated goals go.

    The truth is we support popular, sensible policies and the people in charge are fuck ups and/or bought off; every they bumble and blunder, with each passing second the state of our world is worse and worse.

    Time for some accountability.

      by corporatist cartels.  They have helped bring about that situation.  We need to step out of the restrictive framework the PTB have conveniently set up and think bigger.  The possibilities are endless.

        What do you suggest?  Someone with an occupy background would get my vote.

          Occupy thinks the political process has cooties and won't play along.  That's understandable, but I guess that's a price that has to be paid.  We can't wait on the process to do the work for us, but it does matter who's elected.

          The '60s were simply an attempt to get the 21st Century started early....Well, what are we waiting for? There's no deadline on a dream!
