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).

    According to Republicans a Domestic Terrorist is a Hero...why do Republicans hate America and love terrorists so much? Republicans love the guy who committed a terrorist act against America. But let's remember the victim of the attack:



    From Texas Liberal:

    Vernon Hunter was father of six, a Vietnam veteran, and a dedicated public servant.

    Some people think Mr. Stack is a hero of some sort. Yet the clear fact is that a person who flies an airplane into the side of the building is a terrorist.

    Paying taxes is part of what makes us citizens in a free society. The person who resists paying taxes with violence is a terrorist and a traitor.
