    Don't back down.  Don't get conned into blaming the victims, or accepting the politics of "collateral damage" (that all this wonderful neoliberal reform will be pie in the sky by and by so don't worry if some people are suffering more now.)  Stand up to those who try to pass that shit off, call them for what they are, oligarchs and the servants of oligarchs.  Change the dimensions of the debate, put the interests of the working classes back on the table as part of the debate, and encourage the participation of working people as such, self-conscious of our class self-interests.

    That's where to start.

      by the Obama boosters or the DLC/DNC crowd.  Don't allow them to tell you they can't fix the problem, they can.

      Concern over the economy and DC Dem's refusal to address the problem is valid, is shared by millions in the US.

      It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. ~ Aristotle
