I think I just described the reality we're facing pretty accurately.  I'd like to see something better happen for our kids and grandkids...and beyond.  And, like the thread title says, we can't afford to continue dragging our national feet.  It's up to We, the Electorate...and we have to join forces this year and carry the momentum right into the 2024 campaigns.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


We'd all like to see a lot of things. Most recognize the reality, and do what we can.




The first thing we've gotta do is snap out of it, grow some bawls and swarm the polling places.  Voting is still pretty quick and easy...but it won't stay that for long. No other message will change their playbook.

As a student of grammar, I'm sure you know the definition of "platitude".

And I'm sure you know how much delay and rationalization is guaranteed when the concept of pragmatism is being bandied about as an excuse for lack of action.  It's a call to action that we need...in no uncertain terms.  Will enough of our leaders and activists step up?

There is something to be said for pragmatism, Bill Clinton is remembered as a good President because he abandoned the Robert Reich stuff for the Contract With America.

Trying to re-write history again? Would that be the same President Clinton who's budget passed without a single republican vote?

Do you mean the 1993 budget that gave the Republicans the congress?

That wasn't the reason. Why is it that many times you cons/trumpies  can't make a point without being disingenuous?


By the way, I was talking about the budget that gave the US a surplus and got him reelected.
