How bout chaning this site's name to iamaquitter.com...
When things looked bad in the early nineties for the Republicans did they just give up on their party... NO. They fought like hell(by lying and cheating of course) to get back on top. I for one am not going to give up on my leaders.

We are right and it's time we quit crying about losing. It's real easy to put blame on our leaders on some message board.

Time is on our side folks. If we continue to work we will get back on top, just like the Republicans were able to do. I hate to give any praise to Rush, but he never gave up and he never talked about leaving his party.

The problem is not with the Democratic leaders. The problem is with the media. That not only includes right wing talk shows on television and radio(which are fucking everywhere), but also bumper stickers and yard signs. Most Americans are to apathetic when it comes to politics. If almost all of the exposure they get is from the other side then that is what they will start to believe.

I am thouroughly convinced that AAR will be huge help for our side. Web sites like mediamatters.com and americanprogress.org should motivate all of us to take our country back. Yes we are all bitter and pissed off, but we can't give up on what we believe in. We can't afford to continue to lose.

Keep your heads up and don't take shit from anyone.

2. "How bout chaning this site's name to iamaquitter.com..." - it could
definitely become a forum here from some of the posts I've seen lately.

I was glad to hear last night that AAR is now going to be in Wash DC. I think that is very good news.

4. Get up Stand up
I agree about the whining. Drives me nuts, as it accomplishes nothing and is very frusterating.

6. Things were not bad for the GOP in the early 90s.
Clinton got only 43% of the vote against an eleitist country club republican and a semi-right-wing nut from Texas. They already had the foundations of their media empire in place (minus Fox) and they had a New "Democrat" president who would keep taxes low on the rich and corporations and eventually would allow even more media consolidation for them. Clinton's center-right policies allowed them to define the center even further to the right. Things were great for the GOP in the early 90s, culminating in Newt seeping the house in '94.

Things have been going south for the democratic party every since Carter's colossal failure to lead, IMO, and Clinton did almost nothing reverse that (although he deserves credit for doing what no republican has done, running the country as a REAL conservative, and getting the debt under control.)

The democratic party will be worthless until it goes back to being a PROGRESSIVE party, one that fights for PROGRESS, real headway, not just trying to slow down the republican destruction of this country.
