[Ed. I’m pinning this to the top of the blog today. Fresher posts below.
On Saturday the DNC held the first of four regional forums in Phoenix.
I didn’t watch the whole thing. It was a pep rally for the DLC, to propagandize DLC candidates and spout bullshit about the DLC plans for the future.
The Constitutional Convention
The only thing that held my attention and scared me was when it was pointed out that the Republicans control 37 state legislatures, the senate and the congress. If they gain control of one (1) more state legislature they could/will hold a constitutional convention and re-write our constitution.
If you’re concerned about what the Russian Puppet is going to do to us with his Supreme Court appointments, then imagine the constitution as written by Gohmert, Ryan, Pence, King and the Koch brothers.
If the whackjobs, d1ckheads, and child molesters get control of one more state legislature what’s to stop them? Basic human decency? Xristian values? Enlightened self interest?
The DLC has focused on three “swing states” in the Presidential Elections for the past thirty years, and the Republicans have worked to take control of the government at every level in all fifty states. And they’ve done a pretty damned good job of it, too.
Only We the People can stop them. We, all of us must be involved in the governance of our land from the lowest levels to the highest.
Fifty State Strategy
“The fault, dear Brutus lies not in our stars, but in ourselves,
that we are underlings.”
The fifty state strategy will return the governance of our country to the liberal foundations upon which it was built.
First: Get the DLC out of the DNC. They put us in this position.
Second: We need to stop bitching to each other, get our asses off the couch, and go out in the real world, be adults and get involved. We must take control of our school boards, parks and rec, city councils, judicial, state legislatures, congress, senate, executive. If we don’t do this, Wingnuttia will. In fact they already have.
Third: We need good people like Elizabeth Warren, Keith Ellison and Bernie Sanders in elected office all over the country, from the local dog catcher to the Senate.
Make three calls to members of the DNC listed in the activism tab above. Advocate for your preferred candidate for DNC Chair, but most importantly advocate they support the 50 state strategy.
Please make the calls today. Our “life” depends on you.
