This is a progressive manifesto that outlines a plan to re-right the country economically and bring about increased equality.
I strongly suggest supporting any politician who supports this plan, because it is in my opinion it would not only increase fairness, but lead to a stronger country in the future. None of the components of the plan would be very easy for the Republicans to attack head on without being seen as unreasonable (although I believe that if Obama found the cure for cancer, the Republicans would vilify him for putting some doctors out of work).
Normally, I don't respect political pledges other than the vote for office, but in this case the pledge could be the only way to unify the Democrats under a progressive agenda rather than continue fighting on Republican ground.

DISCLAIMER: I do not attempt to be polite or partisan in my articles, merely truthful. If you are a partisan and believe that the letter after the name of a politician is more important then their policies, I suggest that you stop reading and leave this site immediately--there is nothing here for you.
Modern American politics are corrupt, hyper-partisan, and gridlocked, yet the mainstream media has failed to cover this as anything but politics as usual. This blog allows me to post my views, analysis and criticisms which are too confrontational for posting in mainstream outlets.
