(Swans – September 8, 2008) Before you say it, let me say it: I am espousing a political view that is counter to current mainstream feelings and thought in the “progressive” community. My main thesis is that the support for Barack Obama by so-called progressives is a disgrace, because Obama in no way represents authentic progressive ideals and political reforms. These people are neo-progressives or, less politely, fake progressives. Real progressives should vote for third-party candidates because they are passionately against the two-party plutocracy that has shredded American democracy, promoted bellicose globalism, and pounded the middle class.

  4. It’s just the latest incarnation of Clintonism – turning the Democratic Party into no more than an imitation of the GOP.

    I don’t understand why more progressives aren’t seeing that there’s no there there for them.
