An insurgency broke out at the Democratic Convention in Fort Worth, led by two candidates for party chair, Lakesha Rogers, a member of the LaRouche Youth Movement, and Charlie Urbina-Jones, a labor lawyer from San Antonio. While Urbina-Jones fought to make the party both more inclusive, and more combative against the faction of so-called "moderate" Democrats, which has presided over the catastrophic collapse of the party in Texas, it was up to Rogers and the LYM to put the programmatic issues on the table.

Texas Dems Make Way for LaRouche
An interview with Lakesha Rogers.
By Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. "All those who would understand the onrushing menace which confronts the world as a whole, immediately, today, must muster from within themselves the same spirit which we might recall from the work of Aeschylus, Socrates, and Plato, who, similarly, faced the onrushing actuality of the self-destruction of the leading culture of their times. Without mustering the same sense of Classical irony, which is more easily recognized in Dante, Boccaccio, Rabelais, and Shakespeare, it were impossible, emotionally, to see clearly the folly of one's own such times."
The U.S. Congress and the United Auto Workers international leadership still share a common problem: They appear to think that nothing can be built in these auto plants except cars and trucks, which leaves them debating solely what kinds of fuel should be in the tank. This puts them at odds with the rich industrial history of repeated "retooling" of America's auto industry.

Now, More Than Ever:
Impeach Dick Cheney
"If Vice President Dick Cheney is not impeached by the U.S. Congress or otherwise forced from office during the immediate weeks ahead," commented Lyndon LaRouche, "the United States will probably not survive the onrushing global financial explosion that is coming before the end of the year, and before the November 2006 midterm elections."
