There are now 100 Democratic Representatives in the House of Representatives who have co-sponsord HR 676, JusticeDemocrats.org have had a petition that has been putting pressure on Congress to get HR 676 passed, Bernie Sanders had 13,000,000 Primary Voters in 2016, if these 13,000,000 Individuals signed the Petition and then went about engaging in Activism with laser focus on HR 676 Medicare For All it would become much closer to becoming a Reality, Like Bernie Sanders says “Its time the United States end the national embarrasment of being the only developed country in the world without Universal Healthcare”.
Pick up a copy of Ralph Naders “Breaking Corporate Power: Its easier than you think”, that is a blue print for Grass Roots Activism.
Hillary Clinton and the neoliberal order went down in flames in 2016. Over half of Democratic voters think that their party is “out of touch” according to recent polls, and the majority of Americans no longer trust the corporate media.
In the first four months of 2017, the right wing and their media propaganda outlets are imploding. Bill O’Reilly has already been taken down, and it appears that Tomi Lahren and Alex Jones are on the ropes. Jason Chaffetz won’t seek reelection, and many others are sure to drop out before 2018. Trump’s populist rhetoric has been replaced by business as usual, and he is already the most unpopular president in our history.
The corporate establishment and their media mouthpieces are crumbling. They have lost all credibility and they can do nothing to regain it. Now is our time to fight back, and reclaim the American dream of a government by and for the people!
We urge everyone to get involved locally and start planning for 2018. Organize local activists and get people on the ballot. Run for board of Education, Town Council, Planning and Zoning, Mayor, State Legislature, or Congress! If you don’t want to run, find good people who do and help them! People want change and they want real people to take the lead. Now is our time to create a better world. If we don’t do it now, we may not get another chance.
1. A Constitutional Amendment to the US Constitution Anchoring the Right to Vote into it, as proposed by Mark Pocan, Keith Ellison and Bernie Sanders.
2. Federal Automatic Voter Registration.
3. Election Days to be Public Holidays “Democracy Day”, Legislation to make this a reality has been introduced by Bernie Sanders.
4. A Federal Law stipulating 30 days early voting in all 50 States.
5. Ranked-Choice Voting or Instant Run Off Voting or Single Transferable Vote for Federal Elections.
Peace, liberty, freedom, the opportunity for advancement, and equality under the law are the cornerstones of the American System. Over the past six decades we have drifted away from our founding principles. It is time to restore the American Dream, it is time for The Next Deal!

“Many of Donald Trump’s cabinet nominations faced vocal opposition from constituents and public interest groups. But well-connected corporate lobbyists stalked the halls of Congress to make sure Trump’s team was confirmed by the Senate, new filings show.
Koch Industries, a fossil fuel conglomerate that owns a variety of business interests that have clashed with environmental regulators, directly lobbied to help confirm Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency.
The firm’s latest disclosure form reports that its in-house corporate lobbying team spent $3.1 million to influence lawmakers over the first three months of the year on a variety of issues affecting its bottom line including the EPA’s Clean Power Rule on carbon emissions , carbon pricing, the Clean Air Act and “nominations for various positions at the Department of Energy.”
While public-interest groups were complaining, well-connected corporate lobbyists stalked the halls of Congress to make sure Trump’s team was confirmed by the Senate.
