The Democratic Party is part of the problem

There’s a number of progressives like Hartmann and Goldman that say it we’re unhappy with the Democratic Party then we should join it and change it. Let’s face the facts. The Democratic Party is controlled by corporatists and beyond repair. If you’re a progressive it’s time to support the Green Party and/or form alternative progressive parties. To still think we can make the Democratic Party progressive is naive and futile. That was well proven with Sanders campaign.

Which is not to say don’t vote for Clinton. Given our choices we must defeat Trump and vote for Clinton. But after that we need to organize independent progressives to challenge and defeat the corporate Dems in future races, including Clinton in 2020.
