With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

WE NEED A FAIR SLICE OF THE PIE




Where are the public voices of the liberals who went into the streets when George W. Bush's budgets spent even less than this on militarism?

Are the Republicans right when they denounce "liberals" as hypocrites who only complain about militarism when the "right-wing" is in power? 

If Romney had won the election would the liberals be protesting in the streets if the new president had suggested cuts in Social Security, Medicare, and much more?  If Romney kept the occupation of Afghanistan going would the liberals protest then?

Why are local Democratic Party town committees not holding public meetings to defend social progress from being knocked out with a deadly punch?  Why did one Democratic Party official in my community once tell me that "We have to kill all of them in Afghanistan"? Was the person just trying to defend Obama?

We won't get a fair slice of the pie unless and until we demand it over and over again.  The corporate banksters and war mongers will only yield to massive public pressure.
