14. I may just have the right name ... and it reclaims some key words and memes from the repukes.

How about the Freedom Democrats along the lines of Roosevelt's four freedoms (though not necessarily the same exact words, as repukes have twisted so many fine terms that when they say freedom it means freedom for the global corporations, banksters and billionaires to loot and pillage the 99%. The thing is most ordinary people on both sides have no idea of that. They still believe that freed means freedom for the little guy, so most of the tea party types probably think.they're fighting to keep their own freedom from what they have learned to view as tyranny.

The.name could then seamlessly flow into the simple but powerful statement of "freedom from what" and "freedom to do what" which form our most basic core principles Like.Roosevelt's four freedoms, this works best as one simple declarative statement for each of our categories. Policies can then flow from these statements.

I think most Americans would flock to the polls to vote for candidates who are committed to our positions.

What do you think everybody?
