    The PARTY does not tell me what to do.

    I DO NOT RE-WRITE HISTORY ON A DAILY, WEEKLY, MONTHLY OR YEARLY BASIS AS EACH NEW DEVELOPMENT COMES ALONG.

    What happened in 2009?  Some people sought to divide the Democratic Party in order to win a primary election.  Now, the Establishment, in its infinite wisdom, wants to put that bunch in power?????

    It gets worse actually when you get into comparing the candidates and what each has indicated they plan to do with their time in the next few years.

    My response is simple:

    Grassroots Strike.

    • Hugo Estrada

      Mexico was a single-party dictatorship for 70 years. Among the many things that kept the dictatorship in power was that the right and the left would take turns on not participating in elections. Its beautiful climax came in 1976 when neither side of the opposition ran a presidential candidate. Some even campaigned against voting.

      Amazingly the government-party candidate won.

      The dictatorship was brought down once the right and the left began running candidates and keeping up the pressure to increase the democratization of the country. There was a sustained opposition beginning in 1982. Several elections were outright stolen, including one for president, and many governor races. Yet people kept working for democracy.

      And the sustained active pressure brought change to the Mexico.

      I understand that you feel disappointed, while striking will make some feel good, it won’t accomplish anything. You can’t hurt establishment Democrats by making them lose; they are used to that.
