Democrats will become a progressive party if Hillary is Defeated

never hillary1

There are a number of minor parties in America that offer progressive agendas and advocate for social and economic justice. The most well known are the Greens (Green party), but others include the Peace and Freedom party, the Socialists, the Democratic Socialists, Progressives, the Humane party, etc.

In contrast, the Democratic and Republican parties are indistinguishable from each other on foreign policy, war, military interventionism, trade agreements, Wall Street ties, corporate welfare, offshore drilling, fracking, GMOs, truth in food labeling, aid to Israel, drone attacks on civilians, and mass deportation of the undocumented.

Until this year!

Bernie Sanders’ political revolution is redefining what it means to be a Democrat. Bernie’s campaign is marginalizing the Wall Street Democrats who have controlled the party for decades.

Even if Bernie does not win the nomination, he has already won the soul of the party.

The Clinton wing of the party now consists of Wall Street lobbyists, political hacks, Blue Dog Democrats, and establishment operatives and bagmen.

Among the rank-and-file, Bernie now commands a majority of Democratic support.

But Wall Street and the billionaires will not go gently into the night. They will continue to cling to power as long as they possibly can. They will not willingly release their grip on the throats of the party leadership. And the party leaders will not willingly pass up the millions in bribes and “donations” that fuel the oligarchy.

If Bernie is not the nominee, only the defeat of Hillary Clinton can free the Democrats of Wall Street, Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Ag, the military-industrial complex, etc.

With Hillary’s defeat, the Democratic party is poised to become a progressive party. A party which will advocate for social and economic justice, for peace, for democratic socialism, for the environment.

And it will be either because Bernie Sanders becomes president, or because Donald Trump does.

  1. I do believe you mean “Democrats will form a progressive party If Hillary is Nominated…..” The behavior of the DNC during this primary cycle has insured I will never belong to their party. We need to collectively form the Progressive Party.

      • Have attempted to run for Democratic State Committee and known many other to run for party positions, it is, in my real world experience, nearly impossible to take over the Democratic Party. The Corporate Elected Officials and the higher party leadership put resources into those running for party positions who are willing to pay fealty.

        In fact, if the Sanders campaign shows anything at all, it’s the impossibility of taking over the party. Most Democrats who vote (please note the number of those who didn’t vote even with Sanders as a choice) don’t vote at all in local primaries for the local leadership positions. They are obscure races that voters don’t show interest in and haven’t for the most part during this primary season.
