  •  And the flip side (7+ / 0-)

    Democrats need to stand up with a positive agenda for blue-collar working people.  Point out that government has been in the pocket of the rich for decades now, and that it's time to stand up for working men and women.  No more trade deals that screw American workers.  Invest in new industries that create good-paying manufacturing jobs here in America.  A major commitment to conservation, retrofitting and renewable energy would create hundreds of thousands of jobs for people like welders, pipefitters, sheet metal mechanics, machinists, etc.  Tax reform that shifts the tax burden off the shoulders of the working people that have been struggling for a long time now, and make the fatcats that have been getting all the breaks carry the load for a while.  Put an agenda like that out there, and you'll see people perking up.
