    The "left," or many amongst your kind, wanted when the auto industry went to the cliff. The lefter than thous wanted to push Detroit off the cliff, which would have caused suffering for almost everybody I know including family members.

    Thankfully, Barack Obama is smart enough to see through the limousine liberal bullshit emanating from Northern California and the Upper West Side. He has had more of a material impact on my life and my loved ones than the "left" ever will.  

    We were attacked by the anti labor South and abandoned by our so called friends amongst the left (who regard us, like you obviously do, as racist Reagan Democrats and therefore deserving of punishment).

    Speaking for myself, I will remember who was there for us when the wolves were at the door, and who wasn't. But I get a sneaking suspicion that I'm not speaking for myself around here.

    There can be no agenda enacted without winning elections first.

      We are looking for accountability From the financial sector and preservation or jobs with a decent wage.  Things incidentally that are not preserved by free trade agreements and union busting and deregulation.  Indeed the entire model that says that corporate profits are everything is wrong.  Instead we look, say, to Germany's labor model and point out that social democracy is a great model.  Too bad the mdiwesteners cry "socialist Northern Calfornians!" when we advocate for it and the centrists run screaming whenever Rush Limbaugh says the word "liberal" or "socialist".  But if you think honestly that more pro corporate pro wall street policies are going to work for you, have at it I guess.   If the last thirty years haven't showed you that that approach isn't working then I don't know what to say.  

      (and not sure where the racists notion comes from.  I for one don't subscribe even remotely to that view that there is any particular geographical bastion of racism outside some segments in the south.  Not sure who says that but it ain't me for sure!)

      You'd have guaranteed health care too boot.  I guess that too is too liberal for you
