  •  I think the message needs to be (none)
    a positive one. It needs to be about what WE stand for and what WE can do for you and each other, and not about what is so wrong about our enemies. The message needs to have a name, a modern equivalent of the New Deal. I'll leave that up to the marketing wizzes.

    Then it has to have a list of what this New New Deal means so that people can understand it and digest it, i.e. core values: e.g. universal healthcare, better education for all, higher minimum wage, etc. Something like that. This would be a core platform or core message designed to enlist as many voters as possible.

    Then there would be a broader platform or broader values that flows from that, e.g. human rights (including gay rights, reproductive rights, elimination of torture and indefinite detention), end to supply-side economics, commitment to world peace and the United Nations, etc.

    •  Bush can't cancel the tax cuts (none)
      because that's his way of "proving" Dems raise taxes and Repubs don't.
      Rove has successfully fused DemoRats with taxes and many other evils such as healthcare, peace, environment, ACLU, Clinton --ahh so much to hate that the sheep are unaware they're being sheared.

      •  Yeah.. (none)
        few in my school even seem to grasp the concept that taxes = roads, schools, hospitals, countless grants, public transport, etc etc etc.

        Bad sheep! Wakey wakey!
