If the Democrats are ever to win and have any influence for good they have to be real the Genuine Article. The party of Clinton won the battle but lost the war. Corporate Democrats aren’t any better than Republicans, maybe worse. Their hypocrisy and confusion helps nobody but the oligarchs and it’s true that many Democrats are just selling out to the same ole group.
I’m not saying capitalism does not have its place but the fact is that capitalism through greed in America has actively tried to destroy our ideals. There should be some kind of working relationship between capitalism and labor but capitalism in America has said, “I’m in charge, forget you. Forget your ideals, your family and your future”.
Now these same forces have begun to be unleashed upon the rest of the world attacking whom it may: the Chinese, Iran, Canada, whomever. What will it take to demand change? Trump has already assaulted the transgender soldier, the refugee, women, our environment, labor, public education, and has started his attacks on social security and Medicare. The man is a liar. I hate to say it, but it’s true. The only way to counter him is to be the Genuine Article.
So Democrats, don’t compromise to win lobbying dollars from the likes of Goldman Sachs. “The borrower is slave to the lender”. Fight the good fight. Bernie Sanders has done this better than anyone in recent history and it can be done I believe by the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party made a major mistake being aligned to Hillary, to its undoing. The future of the party comes from nominating people like Bernie. He leads by example. Elizabeth Warren is another leader who has earned respect from Democratic voters. Together, these two have showed the way, they set the example. They are not asking for blind trust because they are not autocrats. They are the Genuine Article.
