|A forlorn political hope|
Leave a comment
I used to hear a lot of people say they wanted a good social safety net plus individual liberty, but there wasn't any political home for them. Maybe it's time to work on a political movement.
Hey kids! Let's start a revolution!
I haven't looked at it in depth, but there's a "Coffee Party Movement" going on over at FB in response to Teabaggers.
Too many bad memories from the "Coffees" of the Clinton years.
I think it's mostly tongue-in-cheek, as far as the name, but the idea seems to be to have a *real* liberal party, or a movement in that direction, since the Tea guys are talking about taking over the Republicans. Also, Avedon Carol has been talking about TL4O, "too liberal for Obama", which is another "take back the left" thing.
