Just a quick hit... the People's Party
Jimmy Dore discussed this today:
This is the continuation of the effort that started with Draft Bernie then moved on to the People's Convergence. Now they have come to the conclusion that the Democratic party is a total loss and so they are working to form a coalition. It's early days. Their website offers zero functionality right now. Even so, I'm rooting for them. Yes, we need a place to coalesce.
With nearly 2:1 people in America thinking we need a new party:
That number includes a whopping 49% of Democrats.
Half of the folks who haven't long since #DemExited think they ought to. I think the time is ripe and so I'm really hoping these folks are able to form the nucleus. Frankly, I don't honestly care who ends up holding the banner so long as there IS a banner and those of us who are actually progressive and populist have somewhere to clump up around.
