  •  That's a great idea.. (0+ / 0-)

    If people here ideas repeated, they start thinking about them. That's a way to increase environmental awareness and interest. We need to do that on the economy as well to get Keynesian economics into the mainstream..

    The political battle on an issue is significantly won once an idea goes from being fringe to being mainstream. That happened with social security at one point in history. The GOP accepted it because they had to but many of them never liked it..

    I think the political right learned that lesson a generation ago..

    I was driving yesterday and turned on the radio. The first thing I heard was some right wing radio host talking about the roaring 20's and how Calvin Coolidge reduced the top tax rate to 25% and set off an economic boom the world had never seen. That's a lie but the right repeats it..

    We would of course tell the truth. Markos had a great diary yesterday about how the Democratic Party has come a long way but is still kind of nervous.
