Fuck the Money: Organize

The sooner Democratic candidates realize the path to victory does not run through Wall Street, the sooner they'll have to come to the grassroots for real power.

Erik Loomis at Lawyers, Guns and Money:

The problem today is that progressives believe the ballot box is where change is made, when in fact it is where change is consolidated. Organize on the ground to demand the change desired and the money can be overcome. But if you think a social movement is buying ad time on television or the right kind of media messaging, that’s a game that progressives are never going to win.
