    I have as much authority as the Pope. I just don't have as many people who believe it.

      you address any of the points people have made to you instead of lashing out.

      The crooks are leaving have left office, unprosecuted and scot-free.

      And will continue to be more so as more Americans wake up to the reality of a modern world where the planet's very existence is threatened without decisive action on climate change. A world where murder by spreadsheeters and cost plus contracters pay the puppets to dance in Washington DC. A world where Exxon Mobil has 40 (yes 40) separate front groups purporting to be thrird party organizations. We need to win the idealogical war, and I don't use that word lightly. Our future depends on it.

      Now what is open for discussion is tactics. Obviously it does not behoove us to primary conservative democrats with pro-choice, gay marriage supporting, gun-control loving politicians. We must pick our spots and be pragmatic on what issues we put forward in certain districts. However Obama showed in 2008 that a progressive minded democrat (you can disagree with that statement, but even if you do I bet you would be hard pressed to find a more progressive president in the 20th century with the possible exception of FDR) can win in culturally conservitive hotbeds like Indiana and North Carolina.

      If we are smart and pragmatic this can be a great thing for progressives (and more importantly America).
