  •  yeah, 'visible activism' a la teabaggers. (6+ / 0-)

    That's the ticket to win people's mind & hearts.

    Get in Gear. 2010 or Bust.
    Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.

    •  The thing is.... (0+ / 0-)

      The overtone window sets the conversation we have in the nation.  The teabaggers effectively have moved that window so that the centerist democrat party is now viewed as the "most leftist group of marxist in history" while the extreme right is seen as reasonable for wanting to give tax breaks to the needy rich.

      Your proposal to win hearts and minds is to do nothing and let nature sort it out.  That just won't cut it and we will lose no matter what party is in power.  What we should do is be more like France.  When they tried to touch retirement age and SS, the people went out and had there voices heard.  That action kept the "conversation" from moving in the wrong direction.
