    One hates to be a cynic, but change is so slow. Consider the numbers noted below, and the question reminds, what do the majority of Americans want? No one hears from them. Or when they contradict the political powers, they are unheard still.

    "In the political turnover in the United States in the autumn of 1994, as previously indicated, those opposing aid to the poor in its several forms won their stunning victory with the support of less than one quarter all eligible voters, fewer than half of whom had gone to the polls. The popular and media response was that those who had prevailed represented the view and voice of the public. Had there been a full turnout at the election, both the result and the reaction would have been decidedly different. The sense of social responsibility for the poor would have been greatly enhanced." John Kenneth Galbraith 'The Good Society'

    Michael Tomasky is excellent and outlines change with a bit of history.

    There wasn't a "full turnout" at this election because the false utopia of progressivism was out in the open.

    What is "progressive" about explosive government dependence?

    It won't matter.

    The GOP and the Dems are essantially the same damned party of insiders taking care of insiders.

    Liberalism / Progressivism is the only idea concept ideology that moved a nation a people or even an idea forward. But allow me once more to ask for an accomplishment from the right, from the conservatives. I know of none and no one in years of asking this same question has ever provided an answer. Even our founders screwed up until a liberal constitutional government was finally created that established a federal government that allows freedom rather than chaos.

    "Look at our history. All of us know that the American Revolution ushered in what one historian called "The Age of Democratic Revolutions." For the Great Seal of the United States the new Congress went all the way back to the Roman poet Virgil: Novus Ordo Seclorum" – "a new age now begins." Page Smith reminds us that "their ambition was not merely to free themselves from dependence and subordination to the Crown but to inspire people everywhere to create agencies of government and forms of common social life that would offer greater dignity and hope to the exploited and suppressed" – to those, in other words, who had been the losers. Not surprisingly, the winners often resisted. In the early years of constitution-making in the states and emerging nation, aristocrats wanted a government of propertied "gentlemen" to keep the scales tilted in their favor. Battling on the other side were moderates and even those radicals harboring the extraordinary idea of letting all white males have the vote. Luckily, the weapons were words and ideas, not bullets. Through compromise and conciliation the draftsmen achieved a Constitution of checks and balances that is now the oldest in the world, even as the revolution of democracy that inspired it remains a tempestuous adolescent whose destiny is still up for grabs. For all the rhetoric about "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," it took a civil war to free the slaves and another hundred years to invest their freedom with meaning. Women only gained the right to vote in my mother's time. New ages don't arrive overnight, or without "blood, sweat, and tears." This is Your Story - The Progressive Story of America. Pass It On.

    What is conservatism but reactionary politics, but you guys have my credit, you may accomplish nothing but you keep at it. The Rhetoric of Reaction - Albert O. Hirschman - Harvard University Press "He argues that a triplet of 'rhetorical' criticisms--perversity, futility, and jeopardy--'has been unfailingly leveled' by 'reactionaries' at each major progressive reform of the past 300 years--those T. H. Marshall identified with the advancement of civil, political and social rights of citizenship...Charmingly written, this book can benefit a diverse readership."

    Its the money that is corrupting us folks.

    That is why it just amazes me that so many idiots champion the very people buying our system out from underneath us.

    So the solution is to take money out of Washington, that would mean a smaller government, which you are all for right? No you're not.

    Bush is more popular than Obama.
