I can agree with the article.

I'd add that in general,, Americans believe the Margaret Thatcher motto "There is no alternative"

It's nonsense, of course, but they accept it. They've forgotten the "People's History" in this country. It isn't taught and we don't have an oral tradition to pass it on..

Can Democrats Set Out a New Path?

Democrats must embrace a pro-government platform, not run away from it.

Those were the sentiments of Senator Chuck Schumer today, in a speech given at the National Press Club. Talking about the reasons for Democrats’ losses on Election Day, Schumer said that those losses were proof that the American people and middle-class want a government that will work more effectively for them.
