Just came across this first in a new series of vlog posts from a guy named Davis Fleetwood who has the lofty goal of moving the whole political center a bit to the left. Essentially, Fleetwood's argument is this: right-wing voices with big microphones like Glenn Beck are moving the whole conversation to the right and are not being counterbalanced by voices from the left. Fleetwood wants to be that voice and he submitted his first of 365 posts today. Says Fleetwood:
"Despite the laudable and truly valiant efforts of groups like Iraq Vets Against the War and Individuals such as Cindy Sheehan, David Swanson Cynthia McKinney, Ralph Nader and even Dennis Kucinich- Single payer healthcare has been marginalized to the fringes and all but removed from the debate, the peace movement is a complete failure, the new energy bill could actually make the environment worse, and we are no closer to a two state solution and justice for Palestine than we were under Ronald Regan."
