WE DIDN'T VOTE FOR PRESIDENT MANCHIN
“This party is a broad umbrella.” A phrase that has always been
baffling given that a party needs to have a more or less unified
focus on a whole range of policies and issues. Which leaves us with
the present mess of the Democratic “coalition” that consists of
genuine, radical progressives such as AOC and Rashida Tlaib on the
one hand, and then on the other, very much right hand, are the likes
of Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema.
Policy differences are one thing within a party. Complete ideological
differences based on cynical electoral concerns are another. Both
Manchin and Sinema claim to be Democrats. Yet both are
extraordinarily mindful of the conservative-leaning states they both
represent (West Virginia and Arizona respectively) and are seriously
raining on the progressive parade right now. Both have made their
opposition to the federal minimum wage being increased to $15.00
per hour more than obvious. Likewise, their objection to the Senate
filibuster being done away with, much to the dismay of many. Has
also been prominent.
Be under no illusions, both Manchin and Sinema care little for the
well-being of Americans, while caring a whole lot about their ongoing
political and electoral fortunes given the sizeable number of
conservatives to be found in their states. With a current 50-50
split in Congress, with only Vice-President Harris able to break that
legislative tie in favor of the Democrats, it is very much the case
for that to happen there has to be a clean sweep of all 50 Democrat
Senators in complete unison. Which makes Manchin and Sinema’s
donning Democrat hats while giving a nod and a wink to their GOP
leaning states, all the more dismaying. And even more head-ache
inducing for progressives.
There is though an irony here. While Manchin and Sinema are, and
as much as they won’t admit it, trying to play tin-pot king-makers in
Congress by holding their fellow Democrat colleagues to policy
ransom, they in turn are being held ransom by their own electorate.
Fear does funny things, especially so if you are a pretend liberal
Senator mindful of representing a battleground state with sizeable
numbers of conservative voters potentially waving their electoral
Manchin and Sinema are not only phonies, they are part of a dying
breed – conservative leaning Democratic dinosaurs. If you want to
see the real future of the liberal-left, then NYC is your portal to
the future. AOC is the future. Jamaal Bowman is the future. Suraj
Patel is the future. And so is Andrew Yang, entering the electoral
fray to become mayor of NYC in 2021. These are genuine people
with genuine progressive credentials.
This is where TIP Party comes firmly into play. The Democratic
Party, ran by the DNC, is an emptying husk of representation for
regular men and women of both NYC and the country beyond. It will
never come close to ever registering with the DNC that the majority
of the American people want real change. Not compromise, not sell
it short by an arms-length and hope no-one will notice. No, they want
and deserve change. TIP Party is that change and it will welcome
with open arms the likes of AOC, Yang and any progressive that
wants to actually do something other than re-hash what has come
NYC Progressives, it really is as simple as this: The city and political
party that controls the $8.8 trillion dollar global (currently racist)
travel industry controls the world. NYC is the vibrant, beating heart
of the universe.
The endless oscillation between moderate Democrats and extremist
Republicans will, if not checked, eventually finish the USA off.
Voters want new parties for not only the good of themselves, but
for democracy also. TIP Party is a rising force in NYC, a force that
will continue to build and ultimately wash away the calculating likes
of Manchin, Sinema and any other conservatives clearly posing as
something that they are not.
As we have noted before on TIPNation, if you keeping doing the
same things, that inevitably fail, but each time you expect a
different result, then you are waltzing in the dance-hall of insanity.
And hold the front page – America is actually a liberal, progressive
country at heart. It was born of revolution, with then conservatives
wearing red jackets. Those that wanted change wore blue. Change,
like TIP Party, cannot be stopped. It can be held up for a while, but
its triumph is inevitable.
At the heart of Travel in Peace Nation is a political movement
rooted in social tourism. Social tourism is the extension of tourism
benefits to disadvantaged people who otherwise could not afford to
travel. Our version benefits both the traveler and the host
We believe that 90 million young voters, and growing, are ready to
embrace a new political party that espouses progressive ideas,
universal basic income, social justice movements, universal global
travel as well as political self-funding which effectively eliminates
lobbyists dictating policy.
Technology and the pandemic have already disrupted both travel and
politics—we want to take that to the next level together by
harnessing the power of the pandemic for social good and to reclaim
NYC'S 65 million tourists, FAST.
Every historian, economist and politician worth their salt will agree
the following. That a formerly enslaved people who, after 250
years in bondage were emancipated with nothing more that the
clothes on their back, and then struggled more for the next 156
years, courtesy of Jim Crow, segregation and poverty, simply must
use the power of the pandemic to collectively free themselves
economically from their oppressors by political means.
Fellow New Yorkers, bothers and sisters in arms, we have a plan, we
have the right people in place and we have the technology. Now all
we need is just the political will to free ourselves from the donor
likes of McGuire, Stringer and Donovan. We know that they are
nothing more than puppets for the 1%. Let’s not allow the likes of
Manchin and other conservative sponsored politicians the
opportunity to pretend they govern us when it’s been shown time
after time that they will sell us out.
Consequently, Manchin and Sinema would do well to crawl back under
whatever conservative rock they originally emerged from. Voters
need to have real electoral options. And progressives, from the
most prominent in Congress down to the grass-roots, need to take a
good, long look at their Democratic Party membership card, toss it in
the trash, and sign up with TIP Party.
