Arvonne Fraser: Negativism or Constructive Ideas?


As an unabashed liberal-or progressive, if you prefer-I'm worried about the left complaining rather than suggesting new, innovative ideas.  It seems to me most of our commentators and pundits concentrate on the problems; whine about the conservatives taking over state legislatures and the U.S. House of Representatives, but don't articulate their own philosophy very clearly.   


Instead of complaining, we should be preparing for our next takeover.  How do we articulate succinctly what we believe in and what new ideas we have?  When are we going to start supporting our candidates instead of criticizing them when they get elected?   How are we going to get voters energized enough to vote for our side?
