The power of progressives keeps getting siphoned away by one particular corporate-sponsored party. They are the ones who keep harping a single BIG LIE, that third parties are taking away from them...but,in fact, the exact opposite is true. The progressive movement has been consistently undermined by the two party system: real economic justice and social progress won't come until we leave the old, pro-capitalist, pro-Big Business, pro-endless war two party system behind. After all, we will never fix the problems within the system because it is the system itself that is the problem. Proportional representation is the only means to real democracy.

Gladly signed & noted. Thanks, Brian!....and I agree 100% with your comment. When speaking Truth to Power, sometimes it just seems like we're getting nowhere. But Occupy is celebrating it's 1st birthday tomorrow with many actions planned in NYC on Wall St. and around the county in various cities. (Watch "live" at beginning 7 a.m. ET). Contrary to the media, Occupy did not die. In fact, it worked to gather many people all over America and the world, building other working groups that have put "feet on the ground" to help homeowners in danger of foreclosure, among other issues.
Earlier, I read an article by Rebecca Solnit--explaining that we progressives must look at "the big picture" over a period of time. She referenced the civil rights movement and women's movement of the past and reminded readers that it all didn't happen in a day. We are just beginning to form this progressive movement, and are adding numbers and gaining successes. We have networked with other like-minded groups and have even made MainStreamMedia cover various events.
Pushback from groups like caused the White House to backpedal on the Keystone Tar Sands Pipeline. The new mantra of the 99% and the 1% is everywhere.
We must take our small successes and build on them and continue to educate others with our messages.

Republicans have NO intention of EVER cooperating with ANY Democrat in office. They are against women, children and the middle class. Why they have become so obstructive over the years I can only guess is that they want more money in their pockets and to hell with the rest of the nation. Vote Republicans out of office in every state and at every opportunity.
