As soon as anyone who understands policy checks out Michelle Nunn's neoliberal screed they start worrying about having to defend Social Security from Democrats in the US Senate come November of 2014. That is, if Dr Rad doesn't win the primary down here in Georgia.
The labor movement is starting to raise its voice across the country against Michelle Nunn; since her passionate and "fiscally responsible" defense of the 1% is a quiet but powerful effort to cut the hard earned Social Security benefits of Americans across the country. Michelle Nunn is nothing short of a textbook profile of the Death of the Liberal Class in action.
I'm not kidding check out this response from Labor in New Hampshire (no bastion of radical Socialism)
@JimNichols If she is a democrat I am SCARED> Her pages read just like the propaganda from the NH #GOPThe austerity wing of the Democratic Party has played a key role in devastating millions of lives; citizens who will never recover from the policy intransigence of these "fiscally responsible" defenders of the 1%. Nunn wants to ignore reality and sell austerity on the campaign trail--this is just a glimpse of the damage she would do in DC.

Opposition to Michelle Nunn is not only necessary, but the only moral action a Democrat in Georgia can take in 2014 (and those not in Georgia need to open up their wallets).
to continue the austerity shell game. We have more important things to focus on; but Nunn wants us to focus on austerity--her campaign donors in the 1% insit on it!. The Michelle Nunn campaign is showing you how the 1% say "Yes We Can".
I'm glad to see people across the country raising their voices in opposition to her campaign to hand the car keys back to the people who crashed the economy.
We do have a choice on election day in the Democratic Primary here in Georgia so be sure to follow Dr Rad on twitter (and give him lots of RT love) to keep up with his campaign. He, unlike Nunn is actually busy on the campaign trail talking to voters. She's busy raising money from the 1%--when she's not in the media making the case that we need to comrpomise with the hostage takers who shutdown Government this past fall.
@chrislhayes would totally make a great segment to bring @MichelleNunnGA and @DrRadForSenate on to talk pro/cons of austerity economics.

No matter if you live in Georgia or not this primary may well decide if we see cuts to your Social Security or not.
Its up to the readers of this blog to take actions to undermine the viability of the Michelle Nunn so that she doesn't make it through the primary. She won't defend us when she's in DC; why should we defend her now? In fact we have a moral obligation to stop Neoliberal Nunn in her tracks.
For my own part I've set up a political action committee that will be working to get on TV to defend Social Security from the hands of Nunn and her 1% buddies on Wall Street. I hope you join us in our fight here in Georgia as we occupy the US Senate race and let the 1% know we have not gone away.
Together we our stronger--so go like us on Facebook, follow us on twitter, and tell your friends to do the same!
