We have a choice
Edited on Wed Nov-03-10 08:28 AM by 1gobluedem
We can crawl into a corner, lick our wounds, and play the blame game or we can come out swinging TODAY, getting ready for 2012. Which is it?

1. Never thought for one moment to go in any corner until the day that I die...
Swinging and hard is in my future...and in my opinion if the criminals are not finally brought to justice my swinging will appear nothing more than another misplaced pendulum..

2. Thank you! And fuck this "lick our wounds" bs - as I said in another thread, we still have
a senate majority, a Democratic president, and we beat some of the Teabagger's most virulent candidates. Angle, O'Donnell, Miller, Whitman - these people would have done untold damage to this country and the American people said HELL NO last night.

This is not an apocalyptic power shift - it makes things harder but what is democracy without competition?

3. Democracy without competition is what we have now. Both parties are working for the same goals,
and the good cop - bad cop routine is paying off as the two sides of the corporate party trade offices in DC.

5. Fair enough - so what do we do about it?
Supporting Democratic candidates doesn't solve this problem, kwim?
