I think Progressives are the Adults in the Room

Yep, I truly believe that Progressives are the adults in the room called, our country, the USA. While modern day Republicans are the bullies and Democrats are timid and scared, Progressives, for the most part play the role of the adults.

Progressives don’t really want to bothered by the bickering but eventually– we have to engage. The Republicans want to keep all the goodies for themselves and their friends and the Democrats want the same, but pretend that what they want is something for “the people”. Real progressives Continue reading “I think Progressives are the Adults in the Room”

Why Can’t We Be Non-Affiliate? Why Do We Even Need Parties?

I’m in my mid fifties.  I’ve tried both, Republican and Democrat parties and found them both useless for my intentions and purposes.  I love the Progressive movement and find the Green party to be very similar in mission, but, I’m not too sure I want to join a party.  I’m just not a big fan.

I’m also hoping we can agree that not Continue reading “A Vision and A Plan”

Don’t Take the Money Bernie!

Bernie should not take Bloomberg’s money!  He has a strong support of the people.  And simply put, if Bernie takes the money, and loses, then his principles are gone, and the fight would have been for naught.  If Bloomberg wants to spend his money to help Democrats win, he can run commercials with the same energy—minus himself.

This is the lesson the rest Continue reading “Don’t Take the Money Bernie!”

Democratic Elected Officials and the @DNC are Constantly Saying What They CAN’T Do, MOVE!! Get Out The Way.

If  Democratic Elected Officials and the @DNC are constantly saying what they can not do, MOVE!!!!!!!! get out the way.

Epilogue:  I think it’s way past the time for the actual truth to come out about our great country and its policies.  I love America, I served in its Armed Forces,  I vote.  Therefore, I think Continue reading “Democratic Elected Officials and the @DNC are Constantly Saying What They CAN’T Do, MOVE!!
