The Democratic Party is never going to change as long as 'progressives' like vanden Huevel, Sanders, and Brown support Neo-Liberal, Security State, Imperialists candidates like Clinton, Schumer, and Perez. Until they are willing to revolt, to not only not campaign for this ilk but refuse to not support them by calling on all 'progressives' to not vote for them but vote true progressive third party candidates instead, the establishment of the party is happy for them to propose platforms, do marches, and write articles.
They know when push comes to shove these quislings will support them in the end even though the party actually stands for the opposite of what they've been spouting. This is nothing but a phony steam valve to keep the machine of the establishment running smoothly.
When we walk away one of two things will happen. Either the party will collapse and a viable third party will rise up to be a contender -or- the Democratic Party will finally reform. But this phony revolt is never going to bring that about.
This ongoing phony movement within the Democratic Party is being done by people who just don't get it, they aren't as smart as they appear, or they are part of the phony kabuki theater too. Either way they've lost my respect.
