  •  We need a progressive political party. DK appears (11+ / 0-)

    to be committed to a gradual, progressive takeover of the Democrats coupled with marginalizing Republicans. Unfortunately, what we used to call moderate Republicans have come to dominate general political discourse and the Democratic party. They are often social progressives but remain devoted to economic conservatism.

    The financial crisis was such a tragically wasted opportunity for more fundamental structural economic reform that it is no wonder that support for the Democrats is flagging and a principal tactic I so often see employed on this site may be characterized as "yeah, but the Republicans are worse". Hardly a rallying cry to energize either those who do vote or the many millions who do not even bother.
