Enough of the D. C. Dems

From Common Dreams

Molly Ivins has some pretty good ideas. They're not original with her; I've seen them at almost every blog I've read and heard them over and over from my friends here who have almost given up on the Democrats.

It's really simple.

Stop apologizing and grow a spine.

Focus on the important issues. Molly lists three - I can think of a couple others but it's a start.

Out of Iraq
Campaign Reform
Single Payer Health Insurance

We probably each have our own. The point is to focus on one message and repeat it over and over and over. When my two Senators voted for the Patriot Act, my jaw dropped. Diane Feinstein supports the flag-burning amendment. They keep trying to appease when that is not possible.

We need to stand for something and we need to do it now.

You're probably tired of hearing me say this but we have an opportunity which will never come again. If we can't put it together, we deserve the government we get.

    Stop acting as if the pulse of the nation is not at the precipice of explode! Do not think the poll nombers need shift anyomre toward the left! We are there! The time is ripe! Bite it!

    That's my suggestion to this spineless, complicit machine we have on the opposite aisle...
