[Media Source*] (The Living Left) Here is a good post from a liberal blog (one of the few that I read because most are dumb rants instead of problem solving). I encourage all to read it (especially the Democrats) as it may be an eye opener to a bigger problem.
It seems that one of the problems the Left eternally faces is a lack of passion. Why is it that the Right always seems to have more passion? Why is the Left so 'cool ranch' compared to the 'hot salsa' Right? Zeal is not a word historically associated with the Left. Perhaps the rise of secularism amongst the Left has contributed to the decline of zeal within the Left?
Why can the Left not find a way of harnessing the passion, the zeal used so effectively by the Right? What makes the Left passionate? What gets the Left all zealous? If the Left can answer that they may be better placed to motivate themselves in the future. Any suggestions?
I might have a couple suggestions.
I emailed (or Gmailed for the Google lovers out there) this blogger about what I saw as problems with the Liberal Left in general and this is what I said:
You do have an interesting blog. One thing that I have been
dumbfounded about the left is this: why did they ever stop networking
I don't see this on the left at all so I am wondering where their zeal
has gone. It's a pity...b/c our system needs two strong parties lest
we become like other democracies and have special interests rule the
I would go one step further and say that the Democratic party is quickly becoming a "special interest" party. No longer united under a single cause (was that big government?) they are now forced to unite under various creed's, thus splintering them up into little bitty pieces. Although this might sound great for Republicans, this is dangerous for "our way" of democracy as it leaves us exposed to the systems of other nations where "coalition" and "opposition" groups need to be formed and if one group bolts then elections are held (so chaotic).
My one suggestion is that Democrats stop ignoring/isolating their center base (those who are in their party who are strongly religious, oppose abortion and hate stem cell research) otherwise the Republicans will continue to convert the former faithful into their flocks. As ironic as it sounds the Republican party has people in it from different faiths (from Jewish, to Christians to Muslims) and creeds (Socialists, Homosexuals, dumb UN lovers) who are tolerated as long as they embrace the general principals of government.
When the democrats start to learn this, they may begin to win elections. Selah!

I have been to your site and I too am working very hard at adwords adsense to increase my revenue. I am also looking into many NEW ways to utilize the design to further direct people to follow my ads.
