I like substantive essays about the issues. I like writing and reading essays that explain the issues and why they matter. Inevitably, that will include explanations of why the Republicans are so terrible on the issues. Because they are. Inevitably, that will include explanations of why the Democrats are better than the Republicans on most issues. Because they are. Inevitably, that will include explanations of why the Democrats aren't better than the Republicans as much as they should be, as often as they should be. Because they aren't. Inevitably, that also will include actions we each can take, both inside and outside of politics. Because we can.
Politicians come and go, issues remain. I prefer essays about the issues. I prefer informing people and becoming more informed. Knowledge can motivate behavior and inspire action. If you prefer that kind of essay, write and post them. If you prefer other types of essays, write and post them. Please.
Make Daily Kos the blog you want it to be. Write and post the essays you want to read.
