I have been saying for well over a decade that the D party is absolutely tone-deaf to the average American. My experience as a Democrat has been that of disappointment and cynicism.
Perhaps average people who are still clinging to the memory of the D party that we were raised with can now be heard? I know as an average person who completely fits the HRC demographic that I had no pull to vote for the Dem nominee other than an anti-T vote. That is not good enough. It is not about winning. It is about winning and being effective. It is about winning and doing the right thing not the expedient, corporate ass-licking that has become the trademark of both parties. T won because he is not kissing butt. He grabs it (yes, he disgusts me).
So, read this article by Robert Reich because maybe some name dropping will get somebody’s attention. http://www.newsweek.com/robert-reich-democratic-party-needs-clean-house-519704
We need a people’s party—a party capable of organizing and mobilizing Americans in opposition to Donald Trump’s Republican Party, which is about to take over all three branches of the U.S. government. We need a New Democratic Party that will fight against intolerance and widening inequality.
Clearly, the arrogant, star struck, pay to play (Ambassadorships) DNC leadership (Brazile, Wasserman-Schultz = gak), do not hear a God damn thing.
