Republican Congress or not, big-money opposition or not, progressives can win victories over the next couple of years if they stay creative, stay aggressive, and never give up. The last couple of weeks have given proof enough of that reality.
I want my children to live in a progressive America. When I was my sons' age, my hope for a progressive nation was dashed when the Reagan "revolution" set in. I want them to have the future of which I dreamed, and I can sense that we are on the verge of a new progressive era.
I personally find it disgusting how much the U.S. emphasizes the tenets of death instead of the tenets of life throughout our policies. However, is shaming and guilting people really the best way to win them over?
