Progressives Finally have a Leader in the Democratic Party, and it is not Schumer or Pelosi


When President Obama left office on January 20, 2017, he took with him the leadership of the Democratic Party. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi called themselves ‘leaders,’ but you cannot be a pacifist and survive in Washington. Make no mistake about it, our nation’s capital is a war zone, and only the strong and courageous survive. Regardless of how aggressive your words may be, actions and the truth are the weapons which will defeat the enemy.

Republicans are the enemy, and they cannot be defeated by eloquent rhetoric. For far too long Democratic politicians have moved further to the right in a lame effort ‘not to lose elections.’ Meanwhile, Republicans slander their left wing candidates, and lie incessantly; they will do anything to win an election. Democrats will do anything not to lose an election.

Several things must happen to change the situation in Washington. If Democrats and Independents are to regain control of our dysfunctional government, their direction must drastically change. Liberals must move back to the left. They must return to their principles. They must attack and stop defending.

Schumer and Pelosi are too old and completely out of touch with our nation’s population which averages 37.8 years of age. They have either refused to or have chosen not to be truthful about the white supremacist in the West Wing.

The midterm elections will take place on November 6th. First of all, I beg every qualified American to go to the polls. This is the most important election in history. I not only believe that all Republicans should be removed from office, I know that more progressive women must be elected to serve the people. At present, women compose 50.9 percent of the population but only 19 percent of congress. Equally important is the fact that younger, aggressive liberals must win their elections. Change in Washington will never happen if old, white men continue to ignore the majority of the American people. Millennials are the largest voting bloc; baby boomers such as myself are dying off.

Trump is the poster child for real change in Washington. He is a 72-year-old man who is moving our nation backwards. He rejects any positive change in America. This dirty old man in mentally incompetent, and 100 percent of his proposals are intended to move our nation into its dark past.

America is the most diverse nation in the world; this is our strength. Every other developed nation in the world recognizes the rights of all minorities, the LGBTQ community, and complete equality for women. Under Trump the United States has become the most prejudiced nation in the free world.

Finally, although Representative Maxine Waters will soon be 80 years of age, she is fighting for the rights and freedoms of all Americans. Ms. Waters is mentally younger than her physical self. She is telling the truth and refusing to be politically correct. For me, she is the current leader of the Democratic Party. We should all rally around her if our nation is to move forward into the 21st century.

Please tell others about my blog, and how I offer the facts without restriction from advertisers or the influence of ‘political correctness.’ Thank you.
