What Do We Want to Be? Part III – The Importance of Hope

It is hard to believe this is a controversial statement, but given the amount of shit I receive every time I say it, it sure seems to be. Yet, I’m going to keep saying it, because it’s absolutely true: The vast majority of voters are motivated by hope. I know,

What Do We Want to Be? Part I

As a lifelong progressive who really, truly wants to live in the greatest country in the world, I find both the progressive movement and the country at a crossroads. There are two fundamental questions that we as a movement must ask and answer if we are to finally be successful.

Supporting Democrats is a Moral Imperative for Progressives

A lesson should have been learned last Tuesday, when Democrats pulled off the kind of win they used to pull off on a regular basis for many years, when this country was becoming the economic and civil rights standard bearers for the world. It was amazing to watch and it

How “Hard” Did Bernie Sanders Work for Hillary, Really?

This could easily be the shortest article I have ever written. Yesterday, former LOSING Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said on Meet the Press; “I worked as hard as I could after endorsing Hillary Clinton.” (Source) He is right about that. After he finally endorsed her, Bernie did work hard

The Sinking “Progressive” Ship, the SS Bernie

I really hate to break it to many of you Bernie die-hards, but you are on a ship that has been sinking for years. Actually, the ship has been sinking for almost 50 years. It started to sink in 1968, when some “college educated” white liberals decided to give up

The Problem Isn’t Trump, but the Entire GOP

You know, in the last few days, I have caught myself calling the Republican healthcare bills, “Trumpcare.” I have done this numerous times. I apologize. See, here’s the thing. It should be called “GOPCare.” This is a Republican idea that Lord Donny hasn’t even read. He only feels like he

Jobs and Income: Democrats vs. Republicans

Every election season, unicorn progressives and the professional left try to entice me to vote for an independent or third party. Hell; over the weekend, one of them was already pushing Someone like that for 2020. As if we don’t have 2018 to worry about. This points to two of

Both Parties are the Same Only if You’re Insane

Why aren’t more people, especially liberals, tired of the notion that both political parties are “the same” in any way? This is getting serious because the idea that both parties have any similarities at all is absolutely laughable. There are no similarities at all. None. Zip. Nada. And if you

STFU Bernie!

We need to be tired of this crap. Seriously… BERNIE: The Democratic brand is WORSE THAN TRUMP. Really? Worse than gutting health care & deporting DREAMERS?pic.twitter.com/teJTD6sAv7 — Mikel Jollett (@Mikel_Jollett) June 23, 2017 The far left’s current chew toy, Bernie Sanders, just told CNN that the “Democratic Brand” is really

Nothing Wrong With Democrats, Bernie!

I keep being told that there is something fundamentally wrong with the Democratic Party. Apparently, their “strategy” is lacking and that is why they keep on losing to the reprobates who represent the Republican Party. I am told repeatedly that Democrats don’t “fight.” I’m told that Democrats are just as

Disposing of Left Wing Trolls

So a day or two ago, I was perusing the Stephanie Miller Show Fan Club Facebook page and someone posted something of a troll, in which he (of course, it was a white man – who else would dare?) posted a declaration that Bernie Sanders would win in a walk

We Can Do This, You Know… And We Have To

I find myself laughing at all of the breathless punditry, asking if (name of someone in the Trump Administration) has broken the law by (citation of something specific. The implied hope is that someone will do something to make it so that Lord Donny will be impeached and removed. There

The Idiocy of the Bernie Left

Sometimes, I just see something coming from our side that makes me want to scream. There is a strain of so-called “progressives” who haven’t the political sense of a Trump voter. And right now, they are being led by Bernie Sanders, who is one of the least effective members of

When Talk is Cheap, Shut Up

I was just listening to The Young Turks prattle on about how pissed they are over the fact that former President Barack Obama will be paid to make speeches. Imagine that! The first black president, who worked his ass off for eight years, now gets to make a little for

We Already Have a “People’s Party”

We are in crisis right now, which means we, as progressives, should be in crisis mode. That means we have to do whatever works to get us out of this crisis. The biggest problem this country has, really, is an apathy problem. Too many people think voting is an option
