Currently the largest political party in the U.S. is “Independent” which is equivalent to “no party.” Like those in the Republican Party who left that party to become Democrats or Independents, members of both parties now can claim “I didn’t leave the party, it left me.” The Democratic Party now seems just as bad as the GOP. The Democrats are neoliberal and anti-union and anti-democratic in many of its policies. Are the Dems further left than the GOP? Sure, there are but so is Attila the Hun.
“We need a Democratic Socialist Party!”
Since it is hard to go somewhere when there is nowhere to go, we need a new political party to represent the large number of Americans who resonated to the call by Senator Bernie Sanders to start a new revolution. We need a Democratic Socialist Party, a party that combines a commitment to democracy and a commitment to all of the people in its makeup.
Bernie, if you build it we will come.
Hell, if you just get it started, we will build it.
I will not longer vote for oligarchy-supporting Democrats or Republicans. We need candidates we can vote for. We already have too many we can only vote against. We need a new way.
