Who here is giving up?

Yes,I know it can be depressing at times,the right wing owns the courts and almost all national media,they have stolen several elections since 1980 and are virtually promising a civil war if they dont get their way.

Even with all that every poll taken shows that progressive views and programs are huge majority's so I ask....who is going to keep fighting and who is going to slink away.

Did Senator Kennedy ever quit,did FDR?
Whether it be single payer healthcare,a fair tax code to pay for it and other social programs or an end to the USA war machine is worth the battle?

I am going to fight.

8. What about Harriet Tubman during slavery

or the generation of African Americans after Reconstruction failed that continued the fight during Jim Crow and Plessy v. Ferguson?

What if a majority of them had given up?

11. I haven't given up, but I have passed the torch to the young'uns.

I did my part in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. I'm tired now.

12. "who is going to keep fighting and who is going to slink away." wait is that today's pep talk line?

SO IF WE DON'T MEET YOUR 'STANDARD' to keep fighting, we're considered slinkers?


Jesus, this is as absurd as the fanbois in the Diablo III forums asking who is staying up for 24 hours to play when it's released.


Sorry you think we aren't fighting in our own ways.


Have a nice battle.
