When do we want them? At a time to be determined. (Simpsons reference).
We Democrats, or non affliated liberals, progressives and moderates, have a horrible existence nowadays.
We must be reactive by nature, no matter how much we talk about setting our own agenda of reform, due to the fact that we control no lever of federal power.
Thus our efforts must be focused onto stopping them from doing something, instead of doing something good for society that is an end to itself.
But as Democrats, liberals, progressives or whatever, we have our dreams and wishes for policy and reforms that we want enacted.
I want to know what they are. From the grandiose, to the mundane or small.
Right to Vote Amendment?
Right to Privacy?
Protection of Civil Liberties?
Abortion rights (reframe: Right to Choose)?
Banning of Capital Punishment?
Legalization of Marijuana?
Criminal Sentencing Reform?
Peace in the Middle East?

Equal Rights for Homosexuals?
What's your poison? Imagine for a second we have a progressive President with a likeminded Congress.
What do you want to change?
