That's good framing from our side for a change, even if it is reactive. God I hope progressives learn how to do that politics thing again...and soon.
Tom Friedman in yesterday’s New York Times: “Last year, we cut the National Science Foundation budget, while indulging absurd creationist theories in our schools . . . ”
F I just want to stress that those of you who are Republicans or libertarians are welcome in the Democratic Party.
- We don’t rack up massive deficits without good purpose (the last one we racked up was to fight and win World War II).
- We find ways to topple and imprison genocidal dictators like Milosovich at relatively low cost – we would have been more effective with Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.
- We would be encouraging embryonic stem cell research, not seeking a global United Nations ban (which, thankfully, we “lost” most recently, 79-80).
You won’t like everything about us. But overall, isn’t it time to reevaluate?
- We don’t believe Tom DeLay should make life’s intensely difficult choices for your daughter or your dying parent.
