We Can Change DU to PU

In it to do to the Dem Party what the TEA Party did to the Republican Party.
There's a reason why this change should happen & its time to push the movement for the 99% forward.
We have to find a leader who is willing to do the hard part of standing with us & getting their name on the Primary Ballot. The base is growing and support is there for a candidate.
This election will end with a big surprise because a real part for the people will emerge.

She is no populist.

5. If her negatives continue to be higher than her positives, that is what will happen.

I don't think her campaign handlers can change that.

9. TPTB have successfully implemented their vision/strategy. Two parties, one outcome.

 

We all get the illusion of choice, but really it's two flavors of the same shit soda, to quote another member in another thread.

I won't support it, I'll fight it as hard as I can.

11. I here ya bud.

How does one win in a war, by funding both sides as the 1% have done to our political system. It's freaking infuriating. I'm with you as well and fight it till the day I die. I have a little girl that deserves a decent future.

12. The truth of it deserves to be an OP, but I don't have the time right now to write one.

 

And it will have to survive the scrutiny of juries to speak the truth.

Hang tight, Phlem.

6. Feingold created Progressives United right after the Citizens United decision.

Peee-Yoooo! I thought it was an unfortunate acronym back then too.

7. Change in spirit, not name.

Brands are expensive.
They also have recognition
and with recognition comes
familiarity and comfort...
or not, depending.

That's why the 3rd-Way stole
OUR party from under our noses.
Take It Back.

Right-wing politicians fear their base.
Democratic pols have contempt for us.
That needs to change.

The Tee Party is a successful template.
They built a farm league, and groomed
candidates to rise through the ranks.
The Democratic party is top heavy.
That needs to change.

REAL CHAMPIONS rise up through the ranks.
They prove their mettle and gain support
through ACTUALLY defending their values.
Real CHAMPIONS are not weather vanes
always going with the prevailing breeze.

We already have a Pee-Yoo.
Time for some spring cleaning

14. When the immovable object of the left...

meets the unstoppable force of the right, who wins?

If compromise is capitulation, and both sides stand on principle, who wins?

We know who wins, because this is the right-wing agenda -- total political dysfunction and a disengaged electorate.

Be careful what you ask for -- you just might get it.
