As your proposal stands, the state legislature and governor will move forward with these [budget] cuts WITHOUT penalty from you [as they did- G.L.], OS, the dems, or the far-right. Maybe (hopefully) from the anarchists. Lol.
This proposal sells Obama-like dreams and false hope to a [faux]letariat that still has something to lose materially (besides its chains) and thus still needs to suffer more, lose more, and learn more. You all, in essense, "tell the workers in the handful of rich countries where life is easier, thanks to imperialist pillage, that they must be afraid of ‘too great’ impoverishment, [which] is counter-revolutionary." (Lenin).
How does your proposal, during this embryonic stage of worker's democracy in amerikkka, nurture those seeds here and globally? It doesn't. Why? Because it doesn't go far enough!
Further, we the 99% of amerikkka, are 13% of the world's wealthiest, which shapes larger attitudes and worldviews amongst amerikkkans, even, including, and especially amongst the 99% of amerikkka. Thus, we can see the reasoning behind your proposal's appeal to "low information voter/Homer Simpson 'proto-socialist' ". There's a world of difference between your line, that of the Egyptians in Tahir Square, and that of the Greek militants. Or the Naxals in India.
Lenin, one your organization's major prophets, tells us why this is:
"Is the actual condition of the workers in the oppressor and in the oppressed nations the same, from the standpoint of the national question?
No, it is not the same.
(1) Economically, the difference is that sections of the working class in the oppressor nations receive crumbs from the super-profits the bourgeoisie of these nations obtains by extra exploitation of the workers of the oppressed nations. Besides, economic statistics show that here a larger percentage of the workers become “straw bosses” than is the case in the oppressed nations, a larger percentage rise to the labor aristocracy. That is a fact. To a certain degree the workers of the oppressor nations are partners of their own bourgeoisie in plundering the workers (and the mass of the population) of the oppressed nations.
(2) Politically, the difference is that, compared with the workers of the oppressed nations, they occupy a privileged position in many spheres of political life.
(3) Ideologically, or spiritually, the difference is that they are taught, at school and in life, disdain and contempt for the workers of the oppressed nations."
