45. LOL at being downhill from a load of shit
Sun May 29, 2016, 05:45 PM
May 2016

We all are, and the loads will just keep on coming.

They think they are burying us, not realizing we are seeds. Let's see what grows in this shit.

A new and improved DU and Democratic Party (unlikely in both cases), a lot of the 40% independents migrate to a new entity (the Green party, the UPP (http://www.unitedprogressiveparty.org/), the Democratic Socialist Party (http://www.dsausa.org/), or something else), JPR establishes itself as a vibrant progressive lab for change (likely), who knows?

I think it's important to put our energy into places not invested in corporate money and corporate interests, which to me means the ownership of internet sites we call home, and leadership of political parties. If it isn't with our agenda at the top, we should work in some more populist context, or we'll just continue to get screwed by institutional bias and barriers.

There's a great of energy looking for direction, we'll see what form it takes. Peace!

I don't know of a way to delete your DU account. If you do, please post. Thanks. merrily May 2016 #1

You can't delete your account. Personally, I don't see much point in deleting posts, either, winter is coming May 2016 #23
