Trump has instigated many questions. People are starting to feel the existential nature of their vote. Progressives must capitalize on this reality.
Democrats are on path to win presidency & hold House whether they run a Centrist or a Progressive. The latter can only lose if they must fight Centrists & Republicans.
The Working Families Party National Director, Maurice Mitchell, discussed centrism and electability in a manner all Americans must hear sooner rather than later.
I got a shout out on the Thom Hartmann Program on Free Speech TV yesterday for my latest Daily Kos Front Page article. It is always an honor when the number one Progressive show in the country acknowledges your work.
The poor and the middle-class are in an existential moment that needs education and leadership. Too many in the Democratic Primary fail to see that.
If one starts to observe the assault on Progressives by the media, Centrists, and Corporatist Democrats, it is not clear if they’ll vote for them.
It is clear that Sherrod Brown does not get it. I understand what he is doing but he is being shortsighted, lazy, and will give the semblance of being owned. He knows the corporations are pilfering his constituents. Why not invest in helping them understand what he knows from the inside.
Progressives cannot fall into the trap once again of ceding policy development to Centrists. They failed us with Obamacare and they will with Medicare for all.
