We Will Not Be Erased

You can promote bigots ahead of us. You can cut our leaders from the programming. You can cut the speakers so the crowds can't hear us. But still, you can't erase us.

I am ashamed to be an American today, but I am still here.

To quote Edna St. Vincent Mallay,
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

Ryan you've stated before that >90% of the Democrats support your Progessive positions, maybe that was overstated. If you're not willing to push your agenda and stop settling for crumbs from the table of the typical politicians maybe you should look for alternatives. You've said you won't create a Progessive Party, then come on over to the Libertarians. Check out their positions (ex gay marriage), you might be suprised.

Simply put, I'm not a libertarian. Far from it.

I seek to change my party from within.

You have to admit then you overstated the support for Progessive ideas within your party.

But you know what, overall today is a day to celebrate the structure of government a bunch of old white men came up with a long time ago, the structure has evolved enough for the continuing peaceful transfer of power to a newly chosen representative.
