Progressives mount a Challenge to Obama In Iowa

For three years progressives have been trying to get President Barack Obama to live up to their expectations. And so far according to the founder of Progressive Democrats of America, they’ve been disappointed. That’s why Tim Carpenter is organizing people to go to the Iowa caucus and vote for “uncommitted” as a way challenge President Obama. “We’re organizing uncommitted slates to go to the caucus on Tuesday to challenge Barack Obama because he gave up on his promise to single payer (health care). He took too long to get troops out of Iraq. There’s still troops in Afghanistan. And we need a financial transaction tax.” Carpenter’s call to action can be backed up with political muscle. Progressive Democrats of America was formed out of the people who fueled the Presidential campaigns of Howard Dean and Dennis Kucinich. Carpenter appeared with the Reverend Jesse Jackson at an organizing meeting in a Des Moines area church this week. They both endorsed an “inside outside” strategy — asking activists to go to the caucuses and work inside the Democratic party as well as participating in the “occupy” movement that works outside the party.

Sad to say, even though Dr. Paul may have some interesting ideas and opinions, they are shaded  by his past racism and current associations.  For instance, many view The John Birch Society in a negative light, but come to find out, not only was Dr. Paul the keynote speaker at their 50th anniversary meeting, he has spoken several times at various John Birch Society events.  Here is his keynote address posted by The John Birch Society’s YouTube Channel.
