Good Cop, Bad Cop, it's a Party shell game....
Do you really believe there will ever be meaningful progressive change from either of the two corporate Partys?....when the same people own both?.....

We need a 21st century progressive ideology as an alternative to the current system, not just our current patchwork....we need intellectual arguments explaining a new state-of-the art working model of economics, government, philosophy, etc.....

Call the best socialist/progressive minds of the world to a convention and write a new 'manifesto'.....explain simply how it will work and how it can be peacefully implemented.....then bring this ideology to the people, Partys will form and 'Joe six-pack' will have a real choice....

What do we have to work with right now?....a discredited 150 philosophy and varying shades of Repub-greedy Capitalism.....

Give people a 'real choice', not just a cosmetic change of labels, and they'll know what to's time to modernize Socialism.....or do you think Socialism can't be 'modernized' and made to work?
