    ...no matter how hopeless it may seem, we have an obligation to continue to fight...no matter what.

    It helps me a little to know that we progressives have ALWAYS been the underdogs in this country...and yet we have made some significant progress in the past despite that.

      When you think about it, progressives will always be underdogs; no other condition is possible.

      To be considered progressive, we must be the leading edge. Which means we are in the minority. If we ever become the majority, then we are no longer the leading edge, we are the fat middle.

      If we are not underdogs, we are not progressives.

      And yes, even as underdogs, we have made significant progress.
