  •  I agree it matters which Democrat we elect (5+ / 0-)

    It matters the way a lot of important things matter,; it makes a difference. So yeah we can and should try to elect the best Democrat possible, but in the bigger context it is more about what we all are doing on a daily basis that will shape the future of this nation.

    •  Why don't you go make (0+ / 0-)

      BO oppose the TPP.

        I'm not a Koch brother, nor does Obama answer my phone calls. You left yourself out of the plural we if that is what you meant.

        That fight is still ongoing, and we may well lose it. But "we" have already gotten Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader of the President's party to oppose it, and the Leader Reid in the Senate has for now refused to move forward with it.

        Do you or do you not believe that grass roots organizing, including the type that led to the creation of Labor Unions and the fight against segregation among others, are worthy of attempting? In their early stages they look nothing like the powerful tides they later can sometimes become.

        •  We'll see on the TPP, (0+ / 0-)

          or if BO's new found concern for workers 'sticks.'

          Time will tell.
