We see stories about the Democratic Party or this candidate, that candidate changing singular actions because the people pushed them leftward.

This is our problem in a nutshell. That we have to push them. We should not have to push. They should be asking us what we want. They don’t. In fact, when we tell them what we want, they push back against us. That’s okay because that tells us what their true intents are, where their true loyalties reside.

The problem is, we don’t have a truly left party or candidates “that can be elected”. You know, “third parties can’t win” and the duopoly makes damn sure of it. The tragedy is how many people keep playing right long.

You cannot demand a change in the system while fighting to maintain that system against those of us demanding actual change. You are fighting against your own best interests. Or ultimately admitting that these were never really your interests to begin with. You really didn’t care from the start. You just want to “win” at any cost, with no change and keep the status quo.

Well, you cannot keep the status quo. The status quo is collapsing as we speak.

You want reform to the electoral system? It will not happen by focusing on “Well, who do you think is a viable candidate?!” You can keep your snotty, self-superior tone. You sound exactly like the Establishment status quo jackasses who fought against change in 2016. Change will only happen with changes to the election funding as a beginning step. It is not optional. You think what the DNC is pushing is real change? Look again. Watch what happens with how much is spent over the next two years. Their bill hands them an extra $5 in federal funding for every $1 in small donations. Who pays the bill for that? You do. Who will reap the benefits? They and their corporate masters will.

Is that the change you want?

Or maybe you want the electoral college eliminated because that’s how your candidate lost in 2016? You can stop denying who was your candidate now. Without the electoral college, only four states will determine the results of every national election- NY, FL, CA and TX. These are also the states with the highest concentration of the 0.1% and which control 100% of the corporate media. Meanwhile, independent media is under constant attack by censorship and demonetizing.

Is that the change you want?
