What Now?

Today, John Boehner bowed to the inevitable logic of the impending political season and placed a “clean” debt ceiling increase bill on the floor of the House. At this writing, the bill passed with 28 Republican and 193 Democratic votes. Now it moves on to the Senate, where it is expected to pass in time to allow the Treasury to keep issuing debt instruments.

So, now we have had agreement on a budget partially rolling back the sequester, and the Republican leadership appears to have decided not to have another debt ceiling crisis. I wrote a post called “What Happens Now?” just after the Government shutdown ended last October. There I analyzed the political situation and made a number of predictions about the short-term future. Here's how I answered the question: “Growth and Jobs or Shutdowns and Debt Ceiling Crises?” Read below the fold...

Grassroots Basics: Training for local emergent party committees

danps' post got me to thinking about training for emergent parties.

More Americans than ever are open to emergent party candidates. But unless they are organized, emergent parties cannot take advantage of the current atmosphere. In defense of Jill Stein, she got more publicity than all the other 2012 emergent party candidates combined. She also ran her campaign in areas where the Green Party had candidates running, unlike Nader, she ran her campaign in such a way as to reinforce Green Party local efforts. After the campaign there were two training camps. So the Green Party has done some training. But clearly more training is needed.

So, I am offering my services to any left of center emergent party. I am an experienced activist, with years of precinct operations and GOTV work for the Democratic party until I gave up on them. I can teach your committee: Read below the fold...
