AOC and Fellow Progressives: It's Time to Ditch the DNC

The American two-party set-up is the fossil-fuel industry of political systems – archaic and toxic to the vast majority of Americans. That’s why the Democrats and true American Progressives now need to part company.

The best interests of the American people are not represented by an oscillating two-party set-up, both of which rely on big corporate dollars and lobbyists on steroids.

Every day, further evidence comes to light to show us just how out of touch the DNC / Democrats are with the real needs and wishes of the American people. When E. Jean Carroll came forward to allege that she too had been a historic victim of serious sexual assault at the hands of Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi’s reply was tepid to say the least:

“I don’t know the people you are referencing, I don’t know the person making the accusation. I haven’t paid that much attention to it…I don’t know what Congress’ role would be in any of this…”

Here’s the difference. The American people most certainly are paying attention to the fact that yet another woman has come forward to allege the sitting President of sexual assault. If Pelosi is trying to champion the rights of women with the newly elected Democrat House, she needs to start doing a much better job of doing so.

But it’s not just that – far from it. While the Democrats are good at making superficial noises about the horrifying Trump camps for immigrants on the southern border for example, the follow-up action is anemic.

While Pelosi has been vocal about this of late, it beggars belief that she and the majority of House Democrats then recently voted in favor of Mitch McConnell’s $4.6 billion bill for funding immigration authorities, but, and tellingly, without any humanitarian provision within it.
