i started threads about ....progessives , republicans and democratic history , yesterday ... and he was mentioned in it .... i have no problem with any of them , as long as they treat this country and it's people right!

My thoughts exactly and I enjoyed your the threads you started. Smile I'm especially fond of bringing up La Follette because he is a WI legend. It's good to learn about progressives coming from WI.

Geesh ! is it really that important ? We have a hell of a lot more to worry about than this trivial BS don't we ? Seems to me WHAT a person is saying is much more important than how it is typed ! As Belushi would say.............. WELL, EXCUUUUUUUUUSE ME !

Yeah, I agree. If you want to type in caps and insist its your disability that causes you to do it when its just as easy to type in lower case, who cares? Its the snide remarks, I don't like.

I don't think this will achieve the ultimate goal of being able to vote on issues that matter to us. That is to say, with this idea, we have to vote people out indefinitely, whereas I would prefer it if we only had to vote people out until the special interests decided it was no longer worth "investing," and then take our country back. Not to mention this strategy is too indiscriminate in that it also punishes the rare politician who hasn't been bought, and we definitely want to keep politicians who aren't bought.



Agreed , but it requires research on each one .... if they are doing whats best for America and it's people then ok , but right now all i see from both sides is vote me back in i'm not rich enough yet, i'll promise you the moon but i have no intentions of giving it to you .

Unfortunately, I believe alot of people did exactly that in 2010. They were fed up with the economy, blamed the Democrats and voted in a bunch of Republicans who are way conservative. They're paying the price right now for their folly.

There are lots of fresh faces in the House. What have they given us? A budget that will decimate Medicaid and voucherize Medicare for everyone who is under 55, while HR 589 gathers cobwebs in a GOP-dominated committee. They are now even reviving the failed Bush plot to privatize Social Security. I think that all three of those endangered programs may be badly needed, down the road, by a whole lot of those of us who are unemployed (assuming we survive this Great Recession - anyone think that we would have received anything close to 99 weeks with McCain/Pallin and a GOP Conress?).

Besides their attempts to further tear the already inadequate safety net, the new faces in the House and Senate promised that their focus would be upon jobs, jobs, jobs. Instead, they worry about big isssues like NPR and Planned Parenthood. The faces may be new, but the ideology is the same old trickle-down, anti-safety net, pro-corporate, further enrich the already ultra rich, to He// with everyone else, extreme right-wing social engineering (thanks, Newt) agenda that dominates the current GOP. I think that Senators Snowe and Collins are the last two major GOP politicians who come close to even the center-right.

Yes, I agree with you. The worse the economy gets the more we'll need social safety nets.

I think the mantra that both parties are the same was put out there by Conservatives (because that's who says it the most)to fill people with apathy so they won't show up at the polls. Its much easier to keep us away than it is to convince us that their conservative ideologies are good for the poor, the elderly and the unemployed.

I read the histories written by the man from California, but I didn't feel any need to comment. They seemed to be very fair summaries of the histories of the three parties. Yes, history is important. At the same time, I am vitally affected by the parties as they stand today. On issue after issue the differences today are stark. There is one party that clearly represents my values on virtually all these issues, aid for the unemployed and job creation being the most immediate, bread and butter, critical issues for me. Are that party and its leaders perfect? Not by a long shot, but there is no viable third party, and if I didn't vote, I would be turning my back on my values.

Why is this all of a sudden bothering people today? He's been attacking me for awhile now. Ever since I brought up Need2beworking. Why do all of you protect her anyway? If you got all the crazy things she's said and done out in the open, you'd be free of her. I get that some of you were pretty close to her and part of the clique, but this just keeps going on and on.

OK, guys, let's get back to the original discussion. All the hints and innuendos need to stop now. None of this is constructive and creates friction between the members. No two people agree on everything and good debates can start because people see things differently.

However, this thread has transformed into one about making disparaging comments about others and isn't evenly remotely on topic. While I'm not a stickler for keeping discussion threads on topic, I insist they not become a fighting match between members.

I'll say this again, we can all agree to disagree on many topics, but we are all in this together and need to work together.
