There are things we can change. And make better. Sometimes all it takes is one person who doesn’t see the obstacles, but only recognizes the need to act with moral courage.

The rally was a conscious attempt to not only re-appropriate the history of Martin Luther King Jr. but also to push the country closer toward adhering to more principles and tenets of Biblical Law.

In trying to come up with a new post for the last few days, I’ve been struck by how negative some of my articles have become. I wanted to write about joblessness, or about Glenn Beck’s upcoming Revelation on August 27, but these things would invariably have led to more negativity. For just one day, I want to write about something positive.
That it took me several days to find something to write about is indicative of what my focus on politics is doing to my mind. You can’t stay here, in the world of bad news, or corruption, unemployment and economic depression, for long. You have to get out of it for a bit and open your eyes, because there is still beauty to behold, and still good in this world.
When I’m looking for something good to focus on I invariably find my daughter.

Some past failures might suggest the US Government is helpless against Wikileaks but an all new strategy never before attempted is giving administration officials high hopes that Wikileaks days are numbered.

It has become fashionable on the Left to feign a world-weary cynicism. The “Audacity of Hope” is often considered a utopian conceit, and a New Fatalism has descended upon the Left. We must not be afraid of the inspiration that we got from the Audacity of Hope, even if our prophet seems to have feet of clay.

That Americans are not supportive of progressivism is largely a conjured up fear to excuse a failure to advance a progressive agenda and win support from Democratic Party leaders for progressive change. The American people support progressive ideas. They just need real progressive leadership that, independently from Democratic Party interests, promotes a vision and future where these progressive ideas are indeed viable and practical.

It is uncomfortable and in some respects unreasonable to take to task those progressive Democrats who should be the biggest allies of social justice movements. This writer (who considers himself to be progressive) is in fact an ally of many of these Democrats. But the direction in which these progressives have led the Left is incredibly destructive to the future of this country and in fact the whole of humanity.

No more talking points Mr. President. Nothing but the truth, the whole truth, will do.
