  •  I can think of many ways to "lead" people (14+ / 0-)

    I'm not into "forcing".  The Dem party, with a handful of exceptions, is useless as far as "leading" people to do anything.  We have a completely dysfunctional political system that continues to move further away from democratic principles.  The two party system is an anachronism at best.  And one party, the Grand Old Party (riiight) has been taken over by plutocrats, racists, Ayn Randist ideologues and totalitarian theocrats not interested whatsoever in democracy.  My hope was that the Democratic party would be useful but in my experience since I switched parties back in 2002 I have not seen the change I hoped for.  

    We need leadership.  We don't need to be driven to act by disgust or repulsion.  The troops are ready, the generals are nowhere to be found with few and exceptions like Sherrod Brown and Elizabeth Warren (am I forgetting someone?).

    Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.

      even though she's not a Senator she has been a huge progressive voice in Congress....the only one to vote no on authorizing the invasion of Afghanastan.

      •  I'd say she's a tiny progressive voice (2+ / 0-)

        -- not because of any lack of courage on her part, but because she's just about the only progressive voice there is.  (Forget most of the "progressive caucus"; most of its members are pretty embarrassing from a progressive perspective.)

        Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej

      Maybe Louise Slaughter?

      Oh, Alan Grayson.

      I tried to go online to find a similar bear head...but when I searched “Big Bear Head” it gave me a San Diego craigslist ad entitled “Big Bear needs some quick head now” and then I just decided to never go on the internet again.--Jenny Lawson
