Sometimes  what is done by  an enemy shows  very  clearly what you have to do:

1. CPAC has a yearly conference. Every year they meet, talk about  their future as if they have one and their leadership as if they have any. And yes, they are covered and discussed.  How about us, progressives? AHOY!

2. They  do not exist. American Conservatism  is a term invented  by the media. They have no philosophy,  no ideology and  they do not know what those words mean. And they have a conference. And it is covered.  How about us?

3. They are   a coven of malicious idiots.  Most of them  are psychologically unstable and very shallow- minded. If you line them  up they look as a mediocrity   raised to the power of 64. And they have a yearly conference. And they will be discussed. And what are we doing?

4. They do not represent anyone but corporate money. The Tea- party  is a surrogate entity, devised by the  group of  rich people to be used as a hammer  so that any normal element in the GOP gets scared. The people who  follow them  are doing it for two reasons: because they are stupid and  because they are  scared. And they have a yearly pulpit and call themselves  salt of the US people.  How can we call ourselves? Losers of the Century? The worst possible losing is when you lose not to power and smartness  but to stupidity and malice.

5.   Hugo  Chavez died and today on Morning Joe some no-name moron said that  'it was good for the people'. Imagine if  someone saying that when when Reagan died. Now, here a person dies, a President of another  country and our MSM mocks the death and  we? What are we doing? Did Obama send his condolences? I do not know- MSM does not say.
Did we demand an apology for mockery through say CISCO gas? Not a chance.

6.  CPAC are not patriots- they are traitors. They do not love this country- They love their way of life although that way of life is illusory.  They speak clishes 99% of times.  They claim to protect the backbone of the US - small business while  small business is being destroyed by the very corporations they serve. They claim to fight against big government but support Homeland Security, NDAA and TSA. They love distant wars   like cowards. They pretend to care for the US young while sending them to death.  They sell themselves to whoever and then claim  exceptionalism. And they have a voice. We don't.

7. We have  all the good people. We have the bulk of very educated, dedicated folks. We are real patriots- we want our beloved country to  live long and prosper among the equals. We want Americans to be respected, not feared and loathed. We want  labor to be in charge, not greed. We want business to be in service of the people. We want  us not  to attack anyone. We want due process and we want  to stop the fascisation of the country. We want universal health insurance. We want  the voting reform and democracy renewed. We want our political leadership to profess  and exercise honesty first and foremost. We want  renewable energy  and clean air/water. We have a philosophy and ideology based on the best minds in history. We are the  voice of the people of America. And we have no voice.

I am looking at it with dismay.  If we here do  not stop bickering and do not start organizing, if we   do not start fighting for the voice, real voice  in the media, if we do not push the progressive money - machine by openly asking and receiving funds from whoever, here and there, foreign  if necessary, if we  do not  proclaim the goal of Popular Front and start the campaign right now- we all will be burning in Hell for that sin after  our dear CPAC people  destroy first us, then themselves, then US and then the planet. They are  the clear and present danger and we have to state that. There is no compromise, no  'we are there together', no ' we all are good'.   If that was the case they would have invited some of us to their  conference. But they know better. We have to make our  own. Then, when we are strong we can invite  the most reasonable of them  to join us. But until that- we must  state the unification of all real progressive forces at the face of the imminent danger. That danger is here; it smirks from the TV screen because it has all the coverage.

 One more thing. Those morons, those idiots, those shallow-minded imbeciles- THEY KNOW THEIR GOAL AND KNOW WHAT TO DO. They will be having a great time at CPAC. And they fully deserve it because so far  they ARE NOT IDIOTS AT ALL.  We are. And we will continue to be   ones  unless we turn the things around. We can do that so that they really feel the heat.
