If Trump gets an infrastructure bill with any kind of teeth passed, he will get a second term automatically, and the Republicans will get all the credit for it and be ascendant for 20 years.
We don’t even have a clue yet as to how badly the “3rd Way” Democrats have fucked us over, but it was thirty years in the making, and that’s what it might end up costing us.
If they hadn’t brought us to the point at which the Republican candidate won the election by attacking the Democrat on unfair trade, wars of choice, and Wall St. coercion, we might still have an identity.
It is absolutely essential that the Democrats change their spots, because we’ve missed a few.
The old guard will try to absorb us as they always do. It’s already happening. They will keep trying to placate us with as weakened measures as they can get away with until we become quiet enough for them to go back to business as usual. Agreeing to Keith Ellison as DNC chair is a large concession from them; much larger in their eyes than ours. They will try to ratchet down from there.
President Obama will be their most effective weapon. His popularity will be their only bulwark, and he will do his best to hold their line, and his best is not something to be taken lightly.
But we have Bernie back now. His new appointment in charge of outreach is the absolute best place he can be. It’s as if someone is reading my wish list.
Nothing will further the Progressive agenda more than an influx into the party rank-and-file, because nothing will make the establishment more nervous. They laughed their asses off at the DemExit.
#DemEnter is picking up speed exponentially. Friends who resisted for months are now on board.
Trump’s win has the very bright silver lining of not only getting rid of the Clintons forever, but revitalizing our revolution, which had lost momentum during “the interregnum”.
Instead of being overshadowed by Hillary, the revolution moves back to front and center, taking up virtually where it left off.
Read “Our Revolution”. Give it as a gift to anyone who wouldn’t be too mad at you. Watch the podcasts. Spread the word. We’re the ones who are taking our country back.
