Another lost opportunity

The opportunity to really push progressive policies has been lost by the Democratic party in the American mid-term elections. The mid-terms should have delivered the promised ‘Blue Wave’ instead there was a blue trickle that merely snapped at the heels of established Republican politicians like Ted Cruz and Ron DeSantis. The leaders of the Democratic party are corporate Dems, bought and paid for stooges, who left to their own devices would have been totally crushed once again.
The progressives in the party delivered the diluted ‘blue wave’ and brought a message of medicare for all, a 15$ minimum wage, getting money out of politics, student loan debt revisions, action on climate change, an end to America’s wars and instituting stricter gun laws. But the party leaders once again moved to the centre and instead of supporting hugely popular progressive policies, diluted the message – to their own detriment.
The Dems have taken the House and it will make a difference in fighting the destructive policies Trump wants to promote, so there is something positive to be taken from this election but it is unquestionably a massive lost opportunity and that fact needs to repeated over and over again. The Democratic Party’s leadership won’t get the message and must be removed from within, now that the progressives have much more influence. The likes of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Diane Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi need to go along with other corporate and massively corrupt influencers.
