Here is where I stand. I am not that knowledgeable in politics but I was wondering if Obama had been elected as a Republican, then the Dems would have had to have been further left of him? Right? Then it is too bad Obama did not run as a Republican. I wonder if he would run as a Republican in 2012. Fat Chance.
I am of the mind that Obama has not brought change, he is merely maintaining the status quo. I find his policies more of that of a moderate republican, than of a true FDR democrat. I’m just trying to figure out a way to get O to move to the left without primarying him as it seems there are no takers for 2012.
I understand that the progs need to do a better job at electing better congressional reps and that, that’s one way to get better legislation.
However, is that our only choice? I am hearing mumblings of a possible Liberatarian/Progressive alliance since they do seem to be aligned on some issues, mainly Afghanistan. And together they were able to get that audit the fed deal to go through. Ughhh..the thought of this track were on thoroughly disgusts me. Anyone with knowlege or foresight or inside info or ANYTHING?
Anyways, thanks for reading my post. Have a nice day!
