Be very very careful with words and images. Words have precise & specific
meanings that can be used to illuminate...as well as manipulate.
"Hope & Change" leap to mind. "Democracy" sounds like a good word...but
be careful how its used. America isnt a true democracy. True democracy
amounts to mob rule. Our founding fathers knew this well.
Dont be fooled. Do your homework.

TRACING THE ORIGINS OF THE DAYS OF RAGE PROTEST
Appropriately, spearheading Progressives for Obama was the man who
had spearheaded SDS: Tom Hayden. Hayden was one of the four
“initiators” of Progressives for Obama, along with Barbara Ehrenreich, Bill
Fletcher, Jr., and Danny Glover. Amazingly, Hayden, who wrote the
founding Port Huron manifesto for SDS, also penned the founding
manifesto for Progressives for Obama.
Yes, Tom Hayden was the spearhead for both.
Beyond its initiators, Progressives for Obama featured a list of 94 formal
“signers,” including Hayden’s ex-wife, Jane Fonda, and Mark Rudd, Carl
Davidson, Thorne Dreyer, Daniel Ellsberg, Richard Flacks, John McAuliff, Jay
Schaffner, and more. Columbia University was certainly represented, if not
through the likes of Rudd, who once shut down the campus, then
specifically through current faculty such as Todd Gitlin, a former SDS
president who today is professor of journalism, sociology, and chair of
Columbia’s doctoral program in communications.
