An economist for 34 years I have remained committed to social justice and economic equality for as long. As long as we keep voting in Tweedly-Demos and Tweedly-Repugs nothing will change. The only way we can affect the political structure is to force the Dems to adopt truly progressive policies and fight for them. And we seem unable to elect the Democrats who are capable of carryng out progressive reforms. Therefore we must deny any moderate or Blue Dog his or her seat in Congress, even if the Dems lose. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
