Hello again

Post  FelidaFAL on Thu Aug 16, 2012 1:50 am

So I heard you got this new place and decided to check it out ;-)

As time has gone on, I've gotten progressively and decidedly more left-wing. In the past, I've been actively involved in local Democratic party politics, but at a certain point when all of your progressive candidates get defeated by corpo-Dems, its been time for a thorough reappraisal. No amount of "grassroots activism" is going to counterbalance the pernicious influence of money on our elected officials. So rather than play the game, it was better to do something else.

Another thread mentioned Robert Williams, who comes up quite a bit in a book I just read called the "The Deacons for Defense: Armed Resistance and the Civil Rights Movement" which described efforts in Louisiana and Mississippi to protect SNCC and CORE members through armed self-defense. Not your typical portrayal of the civil rights movement as a bunch of non-violent marches and vigils.

As a recipient of Black Panther provided medical care and free breakfasts, I'll gladly take a resurgence of local socialist action.

Comradely greetings.
I will vote for democrats at a local level ( or the Greens if they are running at a municipal level ) but you're right- at some point ( usually when they get to Congress ) they become part of the global imperialist network and lose my vote.
Welcome!

Welcome to the forums. Life continues to teach people that the Democrats are nothing more than Republicans with a "human face."

We no longer have a Democratic or a Republican party, we have a Banana Republican Party

and confusion, lies and distortion I can do without. I have enough trouble dealing with the increase in morons on the highway. Well, I live in the south. Hospitality my ass. They act the same way everywhere I guess - Rude and self-centered.
