"Our republic is dangerously out of balance. Well-financed special interests routinely bend the levers of power to benefit the few at the expense of our general welfare.

Political bribery has been legalized by the courts, and both major parties have been co-opted and corrupted by the system.

The result: The upper 1% have done well. The other 99% of us have been left behind. And now we’ve reached a breaking point.

Rootstrikers aims to restore power over American politics and government to 100% of the people. We hope patriots of all political persuasions will join us to help build an unstoppable grassroots movement that demands and delivers lasting reforms."

Waiting for a Landslide -
The dream of realignment has become the enemy of such compromises. It inspires politicians to claim sweeping mandates from highly contingent victories: think of Dick Cheney insisting on another round of deficit-financed tax cuts in 2003 because “we won the midterm elections” and “this is our due,” or the near-identical rebukes that President Obama delivered to Eric Cantor (“Elections have consequences — and Eric, I won”) and to John McCain (“the election’s over”) during the debates over the stimulus and health care.

The Monkey Cage: What Will Make People Trust Goverment Again?
What drives the trend in political trust? By and large, it is the economy. People trust government when times are good. They don’t trust it when times are bad.

A Smart Politics analysis of Minnesota's historical U.S. Senate election returns finds Franken's performance to be the 4th worst out of the 22 DFL nominees on the ballot in general elections since the DFL merger in 1944, when measured against the performance of DFLers at the top of the ticket in presidential and gubernatorial elections held that year.

Open Left:: In Evinco, Veritas
"(In defeat, truthfulness) It is instructive watching the conservative movement suffer a second crushing defeat in 2 years. Losing has become a crucible where anyone who hasn't been paying attention should see the ugly truth about conservativism laid bare."

Mondale and Dukakis talked about policy as they lost. Republicans talk about character assaults.
