The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Four Marines may not have died in enemy action in Iraq, but they are dead nonetheless. They’ll be coming home in boxes. Bring our soldiers home alive before it’s too late.

There has been some discussion that John Dean is spending too much money trying to build broad support for the Democratic Party, and not paying enough attention to the upcoming election at hand. One way you can build broad support is by governing and governing well. You can’t govern at all if you don’t win the election of 2006. There needs to be more of a balance between building the party and winning the election. If you have an opportunity to gain control of Congress you should seize it. It is easier to build the party from a position of power than from a position of weakness.

According to an article at, the United States has a very high rate of newborn mortality. Part of the reason for this is that the rate among blacks is almost twice that of the country as a whole. Similarly, life expectancy for blacks in this country is considerably lower, by at least five years, than it is for whites. These two concerns – newborn mortality and overall life expectancy – have profound implications for American blacks. These concerns need to be studied, and something needs to be done about them. Blacks should not be dying at higher rates than whites. If they are, then something is dreadfully wrong.
