Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    And let me leave you with a good idea for the holidays. If you are looking for the kind of gift that encourages true values and not materialism (and I am not completely against materialism!), you might want to check out Alternative Gift and GoodGiftShop.org (UK site, but takes US orders...just remember to convert currencies). They have some really cook stuff that make good gifts for the less materialistic minded people on your list. Other people have been making it a tradition to give Kiva gift certificates for gifts.
