I've always asked the radicals how their revolution could work when the right has most of the guns. A stranger situation emerges when an avowed liberal, who has shorn his dreadlocks, foresworn sing song chanting, and is able to contemplate the use of force without needing a cleansing shows up, OK I made most of that up and I will let Marc Danziger tell you about his cunning plan.
I'm a liberal Democrat (pro-gay marriage, pro-choice, pro-progressive taxation, pro-equal rights, pro-environmental regulation, pro-public schools) who supported and supports the war in Iraq. As I tell my liberal friends "Did I miss the part where it was progressive not to fight medieval religious fascists?"
I've been waiting for four years for the White House to start really explaining the war to the American people, and to do anything sensible at all to maintain the political capital necessary to keep America in the fight - to keep us from withdrawing because the war is too messy, or too long, or just plain makes us feel bad.......
I've given up, and decided that it's up to each of us to start doing more. To that end, I've decided to start a PAC that will offer support to Congressional candidates of either party who support a foreign policy that doesn't involve wishing problems away.
He's absolutely right and biting off a big piece to chew on. Definitely see what this is about.
