OK, so Tom Perez won -- now what?
My first posting, so please be gentle, people.
Just sent the following missive to my congressional "representative" (a declared democrat in a "purple" state; although I suspect she supports demorat "leadership" on most issues). BTW, I was/am pretty unhappy about the outcome, in case you can't tell --
... demexit. Demorat (not a typo) "leadership" just demonstrated that they are fully committed to the same, old, tired, neolib/neocon, bought-off, identity-politics, losing "strategy" that they have been pursuing for the past 20 years or so. They will continue to lose, pretty much everywhere, for the forseeable future, although putting up a "good fight" with a "brave game face". It's kind of like the Washington Generals and the Harlem Globetrotters (a sham contest) -- usually a near thing, but you always knew who was going to win, no matter where the game was played.
Won't be caucusing with the demorats (not a typo) any more; and I suspect that most millennials will not either - the primary season (obvious cheating) & national election (more cheating; not quite so obvious) were a revealing experience for many of them. During the 60s, the dems "lost the South for a generation" (actually, probably forever -- good riddance to bad rubbish, in my personal opinion); but a least were striving for a noble cause, rather than simply trying to hold on to a modicum of power. The demorats (again, not a typo) just lost younger voters for at least a generation.
Please take me off of your broadcast email list; I am willing to associate with losers, on occasion, but only by choice --
