The Democratic Party is Unwilling and Unable to Reform Itself



The election of establishment insider Tom Perez as DNC chairman confirms yet again what so many have thought:

The Democratic Party is unwilling and unable to reform itself.

After the blatant corruption of the 2016 election where the DNC sabotaged the Bernie Sanders campaign to clear the way for Hillary Clinton, for party élites to select a Clinton-linked insider demonstrates an arrogant refusal to even acknowledge problems that sent the party’s base streaming towards the exits. It’s now clearer than ever that the Democratic Party learned no lessons from its catastrophic defeat. To build an America that works for all of us, we urgently need to build a progressive alternative that’s independent of both war parties and Wall Street. Historically, the kind of systemic change we need only came about when Americans organised strong alternative parties outside the two-party establishment. The Green Party, which practices grassroots democracy and refuses all corporate money, is a welcoming home for Americans fed up with both establishment parties. The #DemExit was only the first step… now, it’s time for a #GreenEnter.
