    Others, for some strange reason, don't believe the problem is that serious and are content with a piecemeal "centrist" approach...

      Ray's main action link at the bottom goes to When you click on About Us you find that the principle is, wait for it ... wait for it:

      He [Kevin Zeese] has been active in independent and third party political campaigns including for state legislative offices in Maryland, governor of California and U.S. president, where he served as press secretary and spokesperson for Ralph Nader in 2004.  He ran for the U.S. Senate in 2006 and was the only person ever nominated by the Green Party, Libertarian Party and Populist Party.
      Bold for emphasis.

      For some mysterious reason, Kevin has run as a Green, Libertarian and Populist but never as a Democrat.

      Agendas, we all got one.

        because only good-standing members of the CorpoDems party marching in lockstep can write articles about the important issues we face.

        Pretty soon one will not be able to reference articles written by socialists!

        Dude, do you have anything of value to add to the actual content of the diary? Do you have a counter point? A point of disagreement you would like to elucidate on?

          I believe my comment was a counter-point and my point of disagreement. But since it doesn't stroke your points, it's fail, amirite?

          Same as it ever was, same as it ever was.

          •  Oh, I get it... Focusing on the guy's political (0+ / 0-)

            history attempting to cast aspersions about the motives behind his writing somehow presents a logical counter-point to the content and theme of this diary!

            The vacuousness of that (attacking the messenger) approach is truly astonishing.

            Let me ask you something, since Chris Hedges is a socialist, can I no longer quote him here at Daily Kos?

            Should I dutifully check every thinker, intellectual, journalist, writer, entire political history before I dare quote them on anything?
