Analyzing 2014's Republican Gains
Democrats and Democratic candidates need to focus on what we wish to see EXPAND in the world: Compassion and Peace and Fairness and Healing. People want to vote FOR something, not against something. There is much more ENERGY in being POSITIVE. The Dems who ran on Democratic values like Senator Al Franken did just fine. Colorado's Senator Mark Udall stuck to one issue and people couldn't concentrate on the good things Democrats have stood for. In the meantime, Obama is once again considering the outrageous and not-really "GRAND BARGAIN" which will hurt "We the People" who have lost way too much ground already to add to the coffers of the 1%. ENOUGH. Let's build UP the 99%, the infrastructure, American jobs, the environment, life-giving things -- not life-destroying things!!!!
