Ive lost my confidence in the Democrats. IMHO, we have two right wing parties right now. We have a party that's in denial on why they they are hemorrhaging seats in both Senate and Congress when they have been neglecting their voters interests for the past few years.
Then I see this video via the Jimmy Dore Show:
The old treasurer is basically admitting that he found a guy who can convince the corporations to make more money so the corporations could choose the Democrats over the Republicans.
I'm done with the Democrats vs Republicans narrative. Everyone is done with establishment politics. It's time for everyone to realize it's the establishment bought politicians vs us. The Democrats don't even pander to lefty interests anymore and hope you fly a blue flag.
The Ds have done nothing but lube themselves up for the Rs for decades.
While the Democrats have pandered to corporate interests, the Republicans are SWIFTLY changing this country into a police state, into a White Nationalist Authoritarian Regime dedicated to enduring corporate dominance pushing Evangelical Christianity.
There is no comparison!
Consider their trial balloon Arizona law.
Direct initiative was the major factor in fighting gerrymandering in California and Arizona with independent, nonpartisan redistricting commissions, helping legislators choose their voters rather than vice versa. In recent years Arizona legislators challenged that removal of their power in court, all the way to the US Supreme Court, and lost.
Some of this might explain why Trump recently said that politics would soon all be one party. Many thought that he was predicting a dictatorship with that remark, but maybe that's not what he meant at all. Maybe it's just the fact that they are all in bed together.
Notice also that tRump has lightened up a little and claims he is willing to work with people now. I think that Miller and some of his other speech writers realize that puffing, blowing, and bragging just doesn't cut it and won't get anyone anywhere.
Just like China. How nice.
At least the food is good.
