RTAmerica: The Big Picture With Thom Hartmann: Roseanne Barr says Nationalize the Banks!: What Progressives Need to be Relevant



For all of the Socialists out there or perhaps people who prefer to call yourselves Progressives. But with strong Socialist, lets say tendencies, you have at least two candidates to choose from. The most well known of the two would be Jill Stein, who I kinda respect from the Green Party and Roseanne Barr of the Justice Party. But either one of them will probably be lucky to get 1% of the vote and even with all of these third party Progressives out there, President Obama is still likely. To get reelected at this point, with North of 50% of the vote and North of 300 Electoral Votes, unless we see some type of game change in the next forty days. Thats just the way it is, which is fine with me, part of that has to do with the monopoly that Democrats and Republicans have. On our Political System, where we really only have two choices as far as who could win the election but part of that is the weakness of the Progressive Movement, not so much at least in this. Case their ideas or members but the fact that they are so spread out and end up taking votes from each other, when what they need instead is one Progressive Party and they could even call it that. Or the Socialist Party, with an ideology thats common in lets say Europe rather then Cuba.

American Progressives have the voice and at least an economic message that can communicate to millions. Of Americans in this country, that could be a factor in American Politics, with an economic message that communicates to Middle Class Americans, that we are here on your side fighting for you and we are not here to take away your business or property but to help you have some. Security in your life and protect you from predators in the economy that would take away everything that you've worked for, we aren't going to take it away from you and we aren't going to let. Predators do it either but we'll protect you from people like this so you can live as successful as a life as you make for yourself and provide a Safety Net for you when you need it. They don't have a party that believes in Economic Progressivism, they don't get that from Democrats anymore. At least the Democratic Leadership and I'm not faulting Democrats for this, we are run by Liberals and Moderate Liberals and we are simply different.

Jill Stein and Roseanne Barr should be running on the same ticket and leading the Progressive/Socialist Party. Or whatever they would call it, rather then competing with each other, to get at best 5% of the vote but since they are running for separate Progressive Parties. They end up taking votes away from each other instead and is something that Progressives need to think about in the future. If they ever want to get into power.
