  •  Well, this is the thing that drives me up a wall. (0+ / 0-)

    I would LOVE if progressives were taken more seriously by the Democratic party.

    I am trying to get them to understand; however, that that will NOT happen as long as they cling to extreme, unhelpful positions like "No cuts ever ever ever ever".

    They just don't seem to get it. They continue to take positions and use electoral strategies that pretty much guarantee that no progress will be made, and then turn around and complain about how no progress is being made!

    Unless they change that, I truly see no hope for the future, so I guess I'll keep banging my head into that wall...

    •  Oh come on, you see "no hope for (0+ / 0-)

      the future" because some of this community says "never ever no cuts"?  I think you are overestimating the influence of the extreme left.

      •  We haven't had an extreme left (0+ / 0-)

        since McCarthy.

        No trade unionists, socialists, communists, or anarchists are ever allowed to talk at the Democratic Table.

        It is a rare day I see anything "extreme left" on this site in the way that tea partiers are "extreme right". The extreme right wasn't criminalized and stigmatized by our government in to nonexistence over the past 70 years. The extreme left on the other hand.....
