Short of a Progressive Coup in Philly, I will be leaving the Democratic Party, How About You?

June 21, 2016 -- This week, Bernie Sanders supporters met in Chicago for a two-day "People's Summit," hosted by National Nurses United, the largest union and professional association of registered nurses in U.S. history, with close to 185,000 members. The NNU endorsed Senator Sanders early on and will continue to support him through the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, July 24-28.

Debbie Lusignan, "The Sane Progressive" invites us to look with open eyes at the larger picture of the prospect of a Clinton presidency. Clearly, for those of us committed to peace, Hillary is not our option, even though we are being shamed, cajoled, warned, and fear-baited into thinking it is our patriotic duty to vote for her.

Here is Debby's critique of Bernie Sanders' end game: An Alternative View of voting for "the lesser of two evils" vs voting for the "greater good."

"I was so inspired by the Nurses commitment to social justice. Three thousand of us heard from the publisher of The Nation magazine, the founder of Democracy NOW, Jim Hightower, and all the other stalwarts of progressive politics, old and young. Young activists shared their 'stories from the field,' inspiring us with their direct action in service of social, economic, and environmental justice," said Debbie.


"But if Bernie continues to insist on reforming a party that produced Hillary Clinton, a party that rigged the primary process and election, a party that is pitching their conservative credentials to trump-averse Republicans, I will have to part ways with this beloved man. Short of a progressive coup at the convention, I will be leaving the Democratic Party."

June 17, 2016 -- "This week, Richard Armitage has joined the growing ranks of Elite Neo-Conservative War Hawks supporting Hillary Clinton's Presidential bid. Additionally, high ranking Republican Political Operatives and Donors have aligned with her candidacy through Republican for Hillary as the corporate/military profiteers now seek to utilize the Democrats for the roles once served by the GOP. Decades of efforts to transform the Democratic Party into one of progressive representation have failed to the point, we are now seeing a NEW Republican Party form in its stead." Debbie breaks it down.

This is a difficult time for all of us, but Debbie is bold and competent, and one of the best researchers and progressive pundits out there. Take a deep breath, and consider her words carefully. --- All REAL NEWS is found online these days.

June 18, 2016 -- Dr. Jeffrey Sachs said, "There’s no doubt that Hillary is the candidate of Wall Street. Even more dangerous, though, is that she is the candidate of the military-industrial complex. Her so-called foreign policy 'experience' has been to support every war demanded by the US deep security state run by the military and the CIA. Hillary is a staunch neocon whose record of favoring American war adventures explains much of our current security danger."   -- on MSNBC "Morning Joe" View Here: Clinton has been the lead agent of every recent war.
