Day 360:

Oligarchs Are Not Looking Out For You

The neo-liberal power structure entrenched in the leadership of the democratic party (and a fair amount of its members as well) will never volunteer to get better. That is the thing I see most democrats don’t understand. They must be primaried, and voted out of office.

Only when Schumer, Pelosie, Durbin, Manchin, Heitkamp, and the rest get voted out and replaced by progressives will there be change.

The Dems need to clean house before they can take on the republicans. Sure if you can replace a republican with a democrat it helps, but look at how Doug Jones has voted since he has been a senator…nothing impressive so far, in fact he voted to approve the new HHS guy, who is the former head of Eli Lilly….

Simply because they have a D after their name isn’t good enough. We will desperately need to primary so many Dem’s this next cycle, and the one after that. They wont give us any power, we will have to take it from them.

Trump is ignoring a near-unanimous (98-99%) Congressional agreement on imposing sanctions against Russia for interfering in the US election. He won’t even acknowledge that Russian interference happened. Instead, he is ignoring Congress to serve the interests of Putin. This is not how America works.
