WE Have to Build Tomorrow

"The Democrats just don't have a plan."

Herein, I have to agree with the Republicans.  Democrats, we aren't pushing bigger better ideas.  Why aren't we fighting right now for a single payer health care system?  Why aren't we pushing paying down the debt, as a way of making the money in your pocket more valuable?  Why aren't we suggesting we build bigger wider roads, as a way to reduce travel costs for businesses?  Where are our big ideas for tomorrow?

For YEARS, I have been pushing high speed rail, that carries both passengers and their vehicles, powered by only renewable resources.  Look around, isn't it nice?

Where is our 'tomorrow'?  We've got great gadgets and media devices, but where's our infrastructure of a new age, where are the new means and ways?  Tonight is the third debate, and I likely will not hear any more about bigger and better ideas there either.

Clearly, conservatives are stuck in the past, absolutely unwilling to let go of the old ways, and accept that there are better days ahead, if only WE accept better ways.  So, why aren't progressives out there pushing for a bigger better tomorrow?

What is holding us back?
