Bernie Sanders, Member of the Progressive Caucus, Cuts to Chase with Maher

( – promoted by buhdydharma )…

Here are a few more Progressives, with the guts to “say what needs to be said”………

The Progressive Message lives on.

Progressive issues of fairness FOR EVERYONE, remain to be implemented.

Progressive Voices will continue to speak out,

and continue to get elected — in spite of the tough odds,

always stacked against us —

Afterall the original Progressive Platform is quite ambitious, and it will always be resisted, tooth and nail, by the Top One Percent, who’s main goal is simply to Own Everything, that is ownable.

The Progressive fight has noble roots, rarely mentioned in school anymore ..

Progressive Platform of 1912

Still the Progressive Fight lives oneven if our history keeps getting “deleted”

There are Progressive Coalitions building, because, Someday, The People Shall Be Heard! is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to bring together the collective wisdom of progressives inside and outside of Congress to promote

   * peace and global security,

   * energy independence,

   * environmental sustainability,

   * human rights,

   * civil liberties and

   * the health and economic well-being of us all.


There ARE Progressive Organizers, stepping up, because, Someday, The People Shall Be Heard!

Darcy Burner Named Executive Director of American Progressive Caucus Policy Foundation

“An unprecedented number of Americans have worked together to set our nation on a new, progressive course,” said Burner. “I’m honored and excited to be connecting those citizens with the members of Congress working for them in Washington D.C.”……

The FISA Bill that just got passed in the House completely sucks!

Wow! speak bluntly much Darcy?  Keep fighting for the Truth, and for the People.

Keep that American Progressive Caucus challenging America, to just do the right thing:

The Progressive Challenge In 2010

The Progressive Fight lives onOh NO, Mr Bill! … Progressive are even “invading the U.S. Congress”

Oh the Humanity!  Think of the People!  

(I think, maybe they are?)

The Real People. You know us folks WITHOUT a Lobby, in DC.

Hmmmm?  What would happen IF everyone we sent to DC

cared more about the People than Profits?

cared more about Progress than Compromise?

cared more about Humanity than Greed?

Maybe on that day, the “Dream of the Founders”, would finally be fulfilled?

Maybe on that day, America will have FINALLY reached its true potential.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.…

The U.S. Constitution

… the story of The People continues …

    make Progressives, even stronger!

  1. I needed this!! 🙂

    • dkmich on December 24, 2009 at 20:12

    I just can’t stand the place anymore.  I’ve never been anywhere uglier.  

  2. He is a smug misogynist, a racist, a colonialism apologist, and a looney toon who thinks that vaccines are EVVIILLL.  Bill Maher also thought the world of Ron Paul.  Bill Maher is as close to being a progressive as Alex Johns is.

    Just a tiny gripe.

  3. as the so called progressive caucus did.

  4. working together. Progessives believe in sharing. This country does better as a whole when the least among us is treated well. He also said:

    The thing that will work is when we raise public consiousness and millions of people demand that Congress work for their interest rather than the very wealthy and powerful.

    To make Sanders more powerful we need to change the atmospherics around him. We need to convince others of the belief that we’re strong when we’re all strong. Trying to convince politicians by ourselves will not work. We need to make more of ourselves by convincing “millions’ of our views and together convince the politicians.
