Its tweets like this that we have heard time and time again, that shout at the problem and never go the xtra mile to learn the solution. I see friends liking the bridge to oblivion posts & wonder why they stay silent, ignoring solutions. It makes you realize they never paid attn.
When I see upstart 3rd parties and friends staying in the low hanging fruit of pointing and problems and skipping the solutions (#FederalJobGuarantee, #GreenNewDeal, #MedicareForAll) and then realize they never bothered really getting #MMT... it makes you further realize...
The lights aren't on yet.

There's a big difference in philosophy between progressives and 'liberals'. Liberals prefer to 'resist'. That only means fighting against something 'aka' push back. As progressives, we prefer to #Insist. That means we are actually fighting for something
Because of that, liberals are always short on policy. They care more about fighting the policies of others, usually half witted. Progressives want actual change: a true move of the Overton Window back to the left. Policies that #insist we have a better world.
As we come close to election day, liberals will fight against some of the GOP's horrible policies. But they won't fight to create better ones than we have now. Progressives will always #insist that the world MUST CHANGE!
