If they made elections more secure it would be harder for both parties to cheat in the future
The media establishment that propped up Hillary’s unpopular campaign is in full damage control now trying to downplay the rigging of the Democratic Primary. Don’t be fooled by them
“One could reasonably infer that the tacit agreement between the signatories was that the state parties and the Hillary Clinton Campaign would act in unity and mutual support. And that the Super Delegates of these various partner states would either pledge loyalty to Clinton, or, at the least, not endorse Senator Sanders. Not only did Hillary’s multi-millionaire and billionaire supporters get to bypass individual campaign donation limits to state parties by using several state parties apparatus, but the Clinton campaign got the added bonus of buying that state’s Super Delegates with the promise of contributions to that Democratic organization’s re-election fund.”
Collusion between the Clinton Campaign and the DNC allowed Hillary Clinton to buy the loyalty of 33 state Democratic parties last summer. Montana was one of those states. It sold itself for $64,100. The Super Delegates now defying democracy with their insistent refusal to change their votes to Sande…
Working Families Party getting it done! ✊???
“Organizations like the Working Families Party are building a roadmap to a multi-party future, a new political environment in which dozens or even hundreds of distinct local parties could operate successfully beneath the umbrella of the Big Two, or in some places outside them altogether.”
By constructing an organization in a specific geography, with a focus on small-volume local elections, a third party can very quickly become a local second-party.
The Democratic and Republican parties have done more to “undermine American democracy” than any foreign power could ever dream to. In 2016 alone:
– The democrats rigged their primary, propped up Trump in the GOP primaries, and used the media to manipulate and cover all of it up
– The GOP used Jim Crow tactics to purge voters, make it next to impossible to vote, and gerrymandered their way to victory
Both of these offenses are way worse than Russians possibly hacking an email account which was loaded with shady info and then leaking said shady info
Too many incumbents in both parties are married to this idea that bipartisanship is a solution to political obstructionism, but it’s not a solution when you cross party lines to vote against constituents and vote for corporations.
#BrandNewCongress is calling out these Senators, and the Republicans in the Senate, because we recognize the danger of dark money in politics. We recognize the oddness of having so many millionaires throughout each and every branch of government, how alienated judges on the Court can be from everyday Americans, and how corporate-friendly rulings made by Gorsuch pose real threats to our democracy.
America doesn’t need more moderates in Congress. We need a #BrandNewCongress who represents people, not monied interests.
We are at a pivotal moment in American history. Both parties have shifted to the right over the past four decades, embracing neo liberal “free market” ideology over the will or welfare of the people. The public has awoken to this nightmare, and the shift to populism is already underway.
The election of Trump, the decimation of the neoliberal order in the Democratic Party, and the current revolt against the GOP establishment over healthcare are all indicators that the country is ready to move left and forward.
It is now up to all of us to make sure the void is filled with good people ready to fight for our futures. It is said that fascism rises when the left offers no viable solutions to the problems we face. This is why Trump won and Hillary lost. Hillary represented the corrupted status qou that left too many behind and impoverished. We must rally around:
-Tax reform that benefits the worker
-Bold solutions to combat climate change and create a carbon free energy grid
-Refinancing of student debt and tuition free university for those with the aptitudes
-Reforming our broken primary schools
-Massive investment in re-industrialization and infrastructure
-Public campaign finance and ballot reform
-Anti corruption laws that jail people who commit white collar crimes
-Ending all war profiteering and the American Empire
We urge everyone to get involved in your communities. Join local grass roots groups, get seats within the local power structures, and offer alternatives to the problems we face. It is time for progressive renaissance in America. It’s up to each of us to make sure it happens! It is up to us to push for the Next Deal, and support and vote for those who will make it happen. Are you in?
