It's hard to overstate the transformative moment that we're in as a nation and, particularly, as progressives. In just a few years, we've gone from the high point of conservative power to a stunning rejection of conservative federal leadership and the historic election of a progressive African-American president.
But the electoral sea change is just part of the extraordinary national moment. The financial meltdown and slide toward deep recession have crystallized Americans' anger over deteriorating economic security, stagnant mobility, growing inequality, and policies of isolation instead of connection. Americans are ready for a new social compact and a transformed relationship between the people and our government. They are calling for a new era of big ideas and different values than we've seen over most of the past three decades.
The electorate has shown an unprecedented willingness to overcome racial and ethnic barriers to take on daunting shared challenges. Young people, people of color, and low-income people turned out to register and vote in unprecedented numbers that bode well for a far more participatory and egalitarian democracy going forward.
Even before this year's remarkable events, opinion research showed a historic, progressive shift in Americans' views on issues that (not coincidentally) were barely mentioned in the election. Perhaps most striking is the shift on criminal justice and problems of addiction, where the U.S. public has moved broadly to support rehabilitation and treatment over incarceration and retribution, as well as assistance and integration for people emerging from prison.
But an unprecedented opportunity for progressive values and ideas is not the same as victory for a progressive social and policy vision. The stark challenges of rising inequality, faltering security, and broken systems of health care, immigration, and criminal justice are the same on November 5 as they were on November 4. What's changed is only the chance for transformative change.

I might be the first in history to be elected that i was a actual witness in the 911 attack and the democrats in the state ignored me,and in the barnstable complex in massachusetts they could be connected to fund cash for political purposes,on 911 i was hired a day prior by a afganistan owner disaters specalists near otis air force base i worked there two days at exit two in sandwich massachusetts he was on a massive hiring spree,later i was orderd to clean a dead mans house in chatham on 911,later i i contacted legal services of capecod 460 west main st hyannis massachusetts 02601 about rapes of my daughter www.presidentcandidate.zoomshare.com dss report,later that very agency convinced my wife to get a divorce in wich one of the people i reconized in the office at disasters spealists as they denied me legal help but repesented her for free and i mean free,later as the rape trial was comming up the stepson who was accused away in the miltary army only because the wife at the time said it was him and my daughter was told to be quit about it by the wife was let off because it sounded like a woman at trial and she had before we met as the second wife here and my daughter a stepwife to her was involved prior in brewster massachusets in a case 1993 same thing happened we met 1994 as i lived on roosevelt ln plymouth at the time and then moved to exit two sandwich and the judge kicked me out just before the rape trial paid off i think and a day after the stepson committed two 209a orders i was making flyers at the time to be governor of massachusetts on printer the wife was upset,later i met a girl being thrown out of the house she said she worked at the kennedy compound and reported to a mr wilson there and later she said she saw jfk jr the day before he died as she was ordered to get bags out of his car isabel her son was in volved with barnstable complex charges it was a acident what happened but later 560 crimes was committed on me by the complex the rapest chrged me 4 times the democrat attorney generals office would not help even in the gubernatorial race in which i was a candidate the police that worked for the democrats office the judges made rediculas moves in the case like the wife stated she knew what was happening molest and later stated yes the stepson innocent well that means it was her dur,and acted like they where on the right side like right sure thing buddy,and ignored the facts garmet bag and sword in wich matched my miltary records sword,and later never even had a licence to get to the campaign events by the actual rapest and later charged by being sick by the way they kicked me out and went back to cure my mental health to my house with 300,000 in equity and was charged by the da and sent to 460 west main st hyannis cape human services where the phsycologist told me there to shut up about me daughters rapes and stated she had the power to put any one away in the gubernatorial race and i was forced to pay out all this cash to courts and the office 460 west main st hyannis and intervined in my job to make money too,the democrat attorney generals office and police did nothing but ran when the rapest cryed wolf in which was a lie and lies well when im president these facts will be proved and you can see them know www.presidentcandidate.zoomshare.com im the only one that would ever figure this out remember by being in diffrent places and events and she maintains custody of my son with no visitations thats a hole another crime all together 7 days before the election but what im trying to say if any one comes close to figure out what there doing on the take they kill them my friend william galvin the secretary of states nephew charged numerouse times and me by a rapest for politcal purposes becaus e i helped microcom where they invented the module that linked computer to telephone in the 80s norwood massachusetts rt 1 the inevntion of the internet and where afraid i could win because im smart and have good looks and great credentials but they needed to nail me so i could be eaten up by the media and took the rapest lies and ran with it,and they could also be funding bin laden as the dont forget there family is in boston,there alot of cash that goes thru there and funding the democrat party also why else does the attorney general dont help rape judges crimes and da crimes because a little later they cut a deal with a drug enforcement officer in sandwich same town and sent him to 460 west main st hyannis the same class i went too so we all agree the cash goes there back to the judges and the democrats office one ashburton place boston and police that are controlled by the democrats office are told not to help me help submit this case to washsington dc 1600 pennsylvania ave nw its my only means of comminications at this point by computer i was open before but they used some kind of weird phsycology with hypnosis to make me less open and social it happened when i went there in the gubernatorial race when i was a candidate,and think my friend was nailed too all of them the more the nail too the less candidates too thats why we lost half the people in the state and the case is i had a rape trial a divorce a crime related exspenses and a district case and a gubernatorial race all at the same time and the da had the very same rape case in his hands the one that charged me but was freinds with mrs white and the other members in the state house and attorney generals office and two lawyers miss repesented me big time one said look for the sword in the proceeding how would she know it was there,the second stole 5000 from me and signed a restraining order as i fought with the lawyer i did not want too in wich is right near the state house that was referred by the bar ascoc there is some thing severly wrong in this entire matter and the scary thing about this its all true
