Sending a Progressive Message to the Democratic Convention By Stephen Dinan OpEdNews.com if your main focus is beating Bush, the game has now shifted. Either of the two leading candidates are fine. The MAIN danger now is if the progressive wing decides that the two-party system is actually a rigged, one-party system and that the game is stacked against candidates who advocate for peace, sustainability, justice and against the Iraq war, NAFTA and corporate domination of politics. If cynicism builds, feeding on the disillusionment of Dean backers, it could cost Democrats the election. So your challenge in voting strategically now is NOT to decide between Kerry and Edwards. The challenge in voting strategically is to keep the progressive wing of the party fully engaged. This is true even if you belong to the Lieberman camp: without the more radical wing of the party, you lose the election.

Iraq had never issued a threat to the United States but Osama Bin Laden had. We kept telling you this but I guess you just weren't listening.
No Iraq Intelligence Investigation Needed Sources Have Already Spoken by Erik P Sorensen OpEdNews.COM The Bush administration today is expected to announce its reluctant endorsement of an "independent " commission to investigate the intelligence flaws that led the US to believe that Iraq possessed large stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons and an advanced nuclear capacity. However, in the period before the war many intelligence experts had warned that Iraq did not possess an active weapons ' program and that the Bush administration was operating on spurious evidence.

By William Rivers Pitt OpEdNews.Com This run for the White House is about far more than winning that office. If you think the end of the primaries will spell the end of his run, think again. If the Democratic Party should win the White House in 2004, a powerful progressive network will have to be in place to push the new administration in the right direction, and against the tide that has been unleashed.

Anyone who doubts this has not seen the man in action, has not met the people who surround him and support him. It comes down to this. Dennis Kucinich is running for President, but he is also formulating a national movement that will be in place long after the race is run. This movement, in all 50 states, will stand ready to defend the most basic American principles that have been lost for years.

Choosing Your Candidate. Are you A Strategic Compromiser or a Burning Flame? by Stephen Dinan A single flame, with patience, can light a million candles. OpEdNews.Com Strategic compromise often puts different parts of ourselves at odds with each other, which diminishes the amount of life energy we can utilize. When our heart battles our mind or our soul conflicts with our will, much of our creative magic is locked up rather than extended to the world via our mission. Strategic compromise leads people to burn out over time because of the lack of alignment. The mentality of strategic compromise contrasts sharply with the mindset that leads to "burning flames." A burning flame is someone whose body, emotions, heart, mind, and soul are lit up with a purpose, someone who is on fire with a calling. A burning flame is passionate and purposeful. A burning flame is love with a mission.
