The Principles Project

I’ve ranted before on the importance of a clear message in politics. And that the Democrats were lacking that in the last election. It seems that I am not the only one who made that observation. A group called 2020 Democrats has started a website called The Principles Project, which is “an effort to develop a one page statement of principles that summarizes what we as progressives stand for.” It’s pretty interesting. They posted a draft, went through a round of revision, and are inviting comments on the second draft this week. I poked around for a bit, and added a couple comments of my own. I think it’s a pretty decent stab at a coherent statement of progressive principles. I don’t fully agree with it, but it’s closer than anything else I’ve seen. So take a look and see what you think.
