Alabama Progressives Need College Dropouts

Not college as in higher education. Nearly every measure reveals the strong correlation between education and receptivity toward Progressivism although I'd argue anybody that hears us and actually ponders our ideas can know we make sense. It is rather the archaic way we elect our President. Over on Captain Plaid I tackled today's New York Times editorial on reform of the Electoral College. The piece is very relevant to Red State resistance fighters that we Progressives often must travel as. If our citizens here in Dixie never hear Progressive thinking as are often best presented via the national stage, then we will continue having limited success. We know House Districts are drawn to assure a result consistent with Department of Justice requirements and that our Senate seats will remain long shots for the good guys/gals. It is a grand idea I think! Peace ... or War!
