Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Perhaps the sequester will finally bring CLARITY to this party.

Maybe this will finally get our party to face the fact that it's our DUTY to defend the idea that government is a necessary and valid force for good in society-that some things ARE more important than just "saving money" or "making money"-that, in the end, we have to fight for the idea, proudly and without apology, that ALL OF US matter, not just the tiny few that sign massive campaign checks.

It'd be nice to think that, if nothing else, at least THAT would come of this-the universal acceptance, by all Democrats, that there are two sides in this society, and that the side that includes the majority, the side of those who are not privileged, not born to dominance, not lucky enough to win at the game as of now(or possibly ever) is the side this party has AN OBLIGATION TO FIGHT LIKE HELL FOR.

3. They're already clear on what they stand for.

 

It's this. Austerity is what the corporate masters want and so that's what we're going to get. It's incredibly naive to think that this party, apart from a handful of good guys, is any better than the other party on fiscal issues. Bought off, lock, stock and barrel.

4. Not as long as Obama keeps throwing chained CPI at the Repugs, and every Dem in congress isn't

 

saying HELL NO. I still can't get over Obama trying to do the Repugs' dirty work for them, without a peep from so many Dems.

5. Finally: a showdown between the party of austerity

and the party of austerity.

I can't pretend to know who will win.

I'm certain I know who'll lose.
