What’s missing in Congress these days is real progressive leadership and real political courage.Howie P.S.: Anybody heard anything from Congressman McDermott?
Over the past several decades, the Democratic Party has been entirely taken over by corporate shills and money-grubbing sleazes while those who might still have some vestigial remnant of a conscience or genuine concern for the plight of the common person have been co-opted or intimidated into silence or powerlessness.
So here’s the call: If you have a so-called progressive as your Senator or Representative, tell him or her that you will no longer giver them your vote unless they first quit the Democratic Party.
It’s time for the Progressive Caucus in Congress to put up or shut up: Quit the party! You ain’t doing no good for nobody serving in Congress as a Democrat!
