Howard Dean: ‘In A Globalized World, No Single Nation Can Shape The Future For Its People’

How’s that title grab ya kids? Yes, ladies and gentlemen; that is an actual quote from Howard Dean himself sending a welcoming message to the Party of European Socialists at their congress in December, 2009.  According to Howie, the American progressives and EU progressives have been working together for a long time. (My sincerest apologies for missing this a year ago.)

Any more doubts that the Democrats have become the American Progressive Socialist Party, or the future that the Democrats want where we have to follow the rules laid down by unelected officials on the other side of the world?

The cooperation between our parties has intensified significantly in the past two and a half years with regular contact at congress, senate, party and foundation levels. Efforts have been remarkable from both sides. The attendance of President Clinton and myself at the Global Progressive Forum World Conference in Brussels in 2009, I think is eloquent and proves this point very well. Many common initiatives have been launched. There’s been consistent work on the issue of the financial crisis, private equity and hedge funds with strong coordination between EU and US progressives. – Howard Dean, address to PES Congress, December 2009.

Pence: “No Compromise”

Greta interviewing Rep. Mike Pence about bi-partisanship in Congress once the Republicans take back control of the House. I want to be very, very clear with people around the country. There is going to be no compromise on ending the era of runaway federal spending, borrowing, bailouts, takeovers, deficits, and debt. No compromise on repealing … Read more Pence: “No Compromise”
