Leadership - NM Democrats Take Note

This, New Mexico Democrats, is how you counter xenophobia. This is how you keep your country, that you take money from, that you pretend to serve, from going from bad to worse. You set an example. You define the boundaries of acceptable behavior. You take a chance. You show courage. You show moral leadership.

Say what you will about Sanders' economic policies, or his support for US imperialism and Zionism. Any politician could do what he did here. Anyone can show backbone, and compassion.

Representatives Michelle Lujan Grisham and Ben Ray Lujan, Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich, where is your leadership? You cower and remain mute while the vitriol and ignorance reign unchallenged. Where is your moral courage?

For more on this please see the post below.

  1. Exactly! I think our Governor Dayton had something to say about his cowardly Republican fellow governors in other States. And our two most famous and now deceased Senators would not have been silent. What a sad charade our so called leaders and wannabe leaders nationwide. :(
