Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment
and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.
The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people
in favor of plutocratic and corporate interests, and absolutist religious groups. 
Why? Because they're evil GOP bastards!

Who leaked our plan to  eliminate overtime pay for workers? That was supposed to wait until after 2004. Get that sonofabitch on a small, poorly serviced plane ASAP!
lying about the justifications for war, precious few said so publicly. Why?  Apparently they were afraid that resist-
ance to Bush's war would be used against them in attack ads during the next election.

Those cowards who knew better but stayed quiet and "went along" with the Republican goose-stepping on Iraq are the reasons for the growing insignificance of the Democratic Party.  The same can be said for Democratic acquiescence on a host of disastrous GOP policy initiatives -- such as the series of tax cuts for the wealthy. It's Democrats like those who give life to the GOP caricature of the mamby-pamby bed-wetting liberal.  Only in the resistance to radical GOP judicial appointments have the Dems shown some backbone.

If lifelong Democrats have to hold their noses to vote for gutless, unprincipled Democratic candidates as the "lesser of two evils," how the hell do we expect to attract the independents and apoliticals?

For the Democrats to survive as a viable political party,
IT MUST STAND FOR SOMETHING and put its ideals
to the test every day.  The Democratic Party must have candidates who view power as a means to an end -- not an end to itself. 

The ends, of course, are easy: traditional Democratic values of full employment, progressive taxation, com-
mitment to public education, quality health care for every American, separation of church and state, protection of the environment, the reestablishment of the Fairness Doctrine, military strength coupled with a rational foreign policy, and with liberty and justice for all.

If the Democratic Party were to rededicate itself to these ideals, we'd see the Green Party adherents return to the fold. The voters, given a choice between two differing views of the function of government could then make a choice.  As it stands now, the voters don't have a much of a choice between the GOP and GOP-lite.

For immediate political impact, the party should stage
a televised mass signing by all Democratic office-holders and candidates of a pledge to uphold these principles. 
Those Democrats unwilling to sign should be dropped from the party (they probably would be voting with the Republicans anyway).

The GOP has been the voice of a radical, but powerful, minority.  The Democrats have been, and must remain "the voice of the people."  It's been Democratic initiatives that have brought forth the programs that have actually improved the lives of average Americans and earned the respect of the rest of the planet.  The Republicans only offer tax cuts and lies -- it's all they've got.  Give the American voter a real choice between these two competing visions of America.

One definition of insanity is to repeat the same action while expecting a different result.  The stakes are far
too high -- the well-being of literally hundreds of millions
of Americans -- to allow the GOP to continue its destruc-
tive domination of American politics.  As chairman of
the Democratic Party it's up to you to lead, or failing that, to step aside to permit more effective leadership.

Respectfully,

An Open Letter to the DNC

Dear Chairman McAuliffe,

It's hard to be a Democrat these days.  American progressives have
a long history of supporting the Democratic Party as the engine for social justice, economic prosperity and rational foreign policy, and still reflexively vote Democratic. But in
all due respect, sir, it's becoming more and more difficult.

And it's not because we're becoming more conservative.  It's because the Democratic Party has ceased to be an effective political force. Instead
of a party committed to principles and ideals, the Democrats have devolved into, as
Arianna Huffington recently opined, a party of "dithering poltroons." Sadly, this is an all-too-
accurate description.

First, about the "dithering." 

Since the stolen "judicial selection" of 2000, the Democrats have dith-
ered on the Republicans' disastrous economic programs, Bush's erosion of the wall of church-state sepa-
ration, the neocon's radical foreign policies, and the right-wing's abso-
lute monopoly on political debate in the public airwaves.

We traditional Democrats are left wondering "Where's the leader-
ship?"  Is anybody in charge of mounting an effective, coordinated opposition to the Republicans?  Is there any coordination between the various Democratic interest groups?  While we expect to be outspent by the GOP, the Dems have at least been in the game. Where's the money going? 

Judging by the political success of the GOP in recent years, the Dems have all the fire and determination of Wiley Coyote peeling himself from the pavement after being steam-
rolled by Roadrunner.  Has anyone at the DNC noticed that for the Republicans, politics is bomb-the-
civilians-and-execute-the-prisoners total war?  The Dems have been playing by Marquis de Queensbury rules, and still don't seem to realize we're getting our asses kicked electorally. 

Is there a Democratic counterpart to the legions of conservative think tanks and foundations?  These are some of the GOP's most potent weapons. With the trappings and gravitas of academe, these organi-
zations provide the intellectual Viagra for GOP candidates, policy-
makers, pundits and talk-show hosts.  While corporate interests lavishly fund these organizations (which in turn distribute funds as upper-class "walking-around" money), between organized labor, Hollywood, and progressive mil-
lionaires, the Left should be able to endow an effective (as in actually influencing middle-class voters) intellectual counterbalance to the Right. After all, ours should be a much easier sell.

Considering that GOP policies are harmful to the vast majority of Americans, in an astute electorate the GOP wouldn't survive as a major political party.  But right-wing think tanks have been brilliantly succes-
sful in honing effective rhetoric and propaganda and have imposed rigid rhetorical discipline on their cadres.  For example, Republicans consis-
tently refer to the Democratic Party as the "Democrat" party.  Or take the so-called "Death Tax."  The
GOP has capitalized on a tax imposed on a tiny fraction of the wealthiest estates and fraudulently convinced average voters that the government will confiscate their small bequests. 

Republican rhetoric can easily be challenged.  For instance, why hasn't the DNC countered with a counter-characterization of the "Unearned Wealth Tax"? The DNC doesn't seem to realize that the Republicans are using rhetoric as a highly effective weapon.  The Dem-
ocrats have been unwilling or unable to craft an effective response.  It's been Machiavelli vs. Mayberry, with predictable results.

Of course, Republican propaganda wouldn't be as successful as it is without a compliant press. Obvious GOP fibs are reported as "news" with zero critical analysis.  Amer-
ican network coverage, such as in the lead-in and during the war in Iraq, is so disgracefully credulous as to abrogate their essential function as
a "free press."  As more and more media is consolidated, this situation will get only worse, with network news ultimately assuming the same role as talk radio has today (i.e., shameless GOP cheerleaders).
This is absolutely poisonous to our democracy -- but where is the Democratic opposition?

Which brings us to the "poltroon" part of Ms. Huffington's character-
ization.

Republicans could never have been so successful without an "oppos-
ition" fearful of risking their popular-
ity. Democrat political cowardice has been instrumental in GOP success.  Democrats' waffling on the justifica-
tions for the war in Iraq are illustra-
tive.  While the majority of Demo-
cratic (and Republicans, for that matter) members of Congress were surely sophisticated enough to know Bush was obviously, shamelessly
