Building the Progressive Majority

Last Thursday, I attended a Symposium on Building the Progressive Majority in 06 and 08, sponsored by the Committees of Correspondence on Democracy and Socialism. Reverend Morris, the ED of Community Renewal Society - a progressive faith-based organization - spoke at the Symposium. The following entry is taken from my notes from his speech.

He said we are attempting to defeat a radically reactionary political mafia. So what are the common elements to bring together disparate groups?

Winning requires voter registration, identification, and mobilization.

What are the values that we share?

We need to appeal to a broader electorate with the message that this is an unjust war and an unjustified war.

Don't Vote Your Fears, Vote Your Faith: the US has lost its way.

We need to articulate and define "the American dream." If we allow fear to reign it leads to an acceptance of the "war" on terrorism.
