Not Bullsh*t….but a Progressive Bull Moose Party….and we need it desperately…..our failing country is a prime illustration for change and change will not come if we stick with the two tired old parties.
This country has been driven into the ground by conserv and centrist policies…..it is time for America to once again wake up and do the big ideas that it is famous for in the past.
For years I have been calling for a Progressive Party…..here on IST…….https://lobotero.com/2016/05/24/a-new-national-progressive-movement/
The politics of the past decades has killed political thought……Clinton (Bubba not Hil) started down a path of ruination and we continue through the death of real political thought…..https://lobotero.com/2013/01/10/who-killed-political-thought/
There is a chance for this to happen…it is the Progressive Bull Moose Party…..check them out…..http://www.progressivebullmoose.party/
Why do we need a Progressive Party?
Good question and the answer is simple……
There is no room for progressives in the Democratic Party.
No matter how many votes he or she gets, no progressive will be permitted to be the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party.
Progressives who try to work inside of, contribute to and support the Democratic Party have no real chance of moving its candidates or policies to the left.
Remaining inside the Democratic Party achieves nothing; to the contrary, it is insidiously counterproductive. Working for “change from the inside” strengthens centrist politicians who oppose progressivism with every fiber of their being.
If American electoral democracy has a future, and progressives want to be part of that future, there is only one way forward: create and build a new party in which progressivism isn’t merely tolerated or partly accommodated as some fringe or necessary nuisance but is its core mission.
For too long big ideas have been at the mercy of the “Good Old Boys” of the DNC….time for them to move over or go to a mountain top and wait for the end……this country can NO longer afford to to wait for the slow turning wheels to catch up.
ALL progressives need to embrace a progressive platform……and to do so you need to read another op-ed I wrote awhile back for my opinion blog, Gulf South Free Press…..https://gulfsouthfreepress.wordpress.com/2018/09/26/why-not-elect-progressives/
