  •  You bet your sweet ass we fight (4.00)
    You bet your sweet ass we fight.  We give them both barrels if need be.  We remind them they work for us, that we are the party, and we will not be silenced or shut out.

    There is one thing that stands out for me, in the media and within the ranks of leadership there are stirrings of talk of the liberal base of the party.  We aren't often talked of in gracious terms or polite terms or welcoming terms but we, as true liberals, are being talked about as a force to be reckoned with.  I find that extremely encouraging.  We are a thorn in their sides which, to my mind's eye, means we are doing our jobs.

    The things that really matter in life are often the things we have to fight the hardest for.  That's as true today as it has always been.  I'm pissed off as Hell with this party of ours, I want it to be so much more, so much better, I want it to remember what its values and principles are so we can all hold our heads up high because we are Democrats, dammit, we are proud Democrats.  I want to feel that deep inside my soul once again.

    I hope it inspires you to make the Democratic Party what it ought to be.

    That's what I'm talking about, the party it ought to be.  My hope is that I can inspire others to do the same.  

    Men, their rights and nothing more; women, their rights and nothing less. Susan B. Anthony
