Let’s show all the haters what we’ve got! If you haven’t donated yet, please doSanders formally joined the presidential race Tuesday morning, telling CBS he intends to win the Democratic nomination and the White House next year
Sorry I haven’t been posting more, making memes, or writing analysis papers lately. Lately I have been very busy working on local politics and preparing to run for office. Some comments on local politics
1) it appears most local politicians are totally devoid of ideology. They are only partisan in the fact that they have relationships within parties and rely on politics for their livelihoods. Many people owe their careers and big salaries to having the right friends locally. This makes them fear outsiders
2) it is next to impossible to know who your allies are. From what I can tell alliances are constantly shifting, people use one another to advance their cause. When you will help someone move ahead they are your friend, when you won’t help them they will stab you in the back
3) politics and personality collide. Some people who I respect politically are absolute scum bags personally. Some people who are very nice people are ass backwards politically.
4) the parties don’t want people like us there, but their bases do. When I stand up in meetings and speak honestly about problems, people in the crowd clap and applaud me. People know we have problems and they’re tired of people sugar coating.
I suggest everyone get involved and start speaking out. Go to local meetings, town council hearing, public hearings, speak out against these people and let it be know we are watching!
