PPI on "Winning the West"
If you've read this blog for more than a few months, many of these themes covered in the Progresive Policy Institute's "Winning the West" report are familiar to you. But, it is good to know that our message is being heard back east:
If more progressives weave these themes nto their vision for the West, if theydemonstrate that they really understand core Western values, then more electoral victories are sure to follow. As other progressives have already shown, they need to stand for sensible development of Western natural resources that respects local values, meets straightforward economic and environmental tests, and protects the interests of future generations. If they do, they will expose the false promise of conservative calls for unbridled resource exploitation and at the same time gain a hearing for their broader agenda of health care, education, jobs, and other quality-of-life issues.
