  •  Some of us kossacks believe the (5+ / 0-)

    act of debating issues here, as well as on other social media sites, is an important component of educating and winning over the less active base.

    The arguments that are informed and honed here carry over to our discussions with family, friends and associates in the meat world.

    Rather than decry the "irrelevance" of the GOS, I appreciate this forum as the incubator of ideas and policy demands that will take root and grow among the larger populace.

    Think back to a couple of years ago. How many rank and file Dems knew what the hell the filibuster was? Thanks to discussions (and raging arguments) here and in other political internet forums, more and more not only know what it is, but recognize it has been abused by the Republicans to gridlock progress.

    So, you can take solace that Joe Sixpack is not as progressive as your average kossack, OR you can work to win Joe over to demanding progressive policy solutions. Your choice.

    Take note: If you and I are engaged in a heated exchange, disabuse yourself of the notion that I'm trying (futilely) to win you over. My goal is to persuade the hundreds of non-commenting observers who've yet to make up their minds.
