Democrats, you have nothing left to lose -- be bold for once.
do not fear controversy, at least it separates who are your real friends and real enemies.

love those who love you back.

act like it's the end of the world and you will rather die on your feet than live on your knees.

act. fuck react.

fuck defense. be offensive.

and to all the confused, angry, dispirited, numb... you know what YOU need to do. do it, do it and care not a whit for consensus.

we all have different visions, different solutions, but they are all worthless whining if no one acts upon them. at least be that one person who acts upon it.

the debating ends today. the work begins today. seek your vision, show it in your actions, invite assistance if you must, and to hell with the naysayers.

the small assaults from a thousand directions brings down great behemoths... leaders are only necessary for the cowardly masses behind them.

lead at least yourself. now go, be free.

(off to do my own thing. no, you don't need to know what it is. i'll invite you if and when i'm ready. now end this pity and blame party and go live.)

1. Democrats have plenty to lose
They currently have the House, the Senate and the presidency. Depending on who retires, they could start to control the Supreme Court. Losing an election to a tea-bagger is only going to convince democrats that they tried to be too liberal. They will grow more cautious so as to not offend the independents that voted against them this time.

2. believe as you must, but people seek strength. they will lose everything if they try for nothing.
as it is the same for everyone and every endeavor out there. no risk equals no gain, and thus death by attrition.

3. Single Payer, Universal Health Care.
Cut the Defense budget to pay for it. Sounds good to me. We could actually have "Free" health care for all.
