To be a true Progressive is to be for the "Common Good". This is something the geriatric gerrymandering Democrat Party leadership is not inclined to believe or practice because they only believe and serve their corporate elitists masters. Only in the last 72 hours have the other candidates begun to 'mouth' the same perspective as Ronan because they fear him taking leadership and see he has a popular following and support. They are only mimicking Ronan in order to falsely appeal to the public. We have seen them do this time and time again and then block progressives. We must continue to hold the Dem party accountable for the "Common Good" and not for the corporatist right of center neoliberal war hawks that have run the party into the ground and handed it over to Trump by nominating HRC.
If you really want to keep the heat on Trump AND ALSO BEAT Republicans in 2018 and 2020, then consider calling the DNC national HQ as well as your home state's DNC HQ and inform them you want Sam Ronan to be the next DNC Chair and if not, they will loose more in 2018 and 2020. Ronan is the only DNC chair candidate that has spoken out against corporate fundraising and acknowledged that the primaries were rigged.
“So many of those people who are disenfranchised thought the primaries were rigged against them and their candidates. The fact of the matter is, it’s true. The Democratic Party has not been open to outsiders and new members in our entire history, and if we want to bring those people back, we need to prove to them that we are willing to open the doors,” said Ronan during a DNC chair candidate forum on February 5. “The hard part, the truth, the reality is that we messed up as a party. We need to own that and hold our fellow Democrats accountable.”
The Democratic leadership has not been held accountable and has instead been rewarded for their loyalty to the Clintons. Former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was hired by the Clinton campaign after resigning from the DNC, and establishment leaders—including Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton—campaigned on her behalf in her primary election. Regardless of her failures and ethics violations, Wasserman Schultz is treated as a Democratic Party spokesperson. Donna Brazile is the Interim DNC chair, despite being fired by CNN for helping the Clinton campaign cheat in the primary debates. No Democratic leader has acknowledged the failures and ineptitude of the Clinton campaign. In truth, it was self-destructive for the for the Democratic Party to anoint Clinton as their presidential nominee.
Ronan has called for holding Democratic leaders accountable and making necessary changes to the DNC to make progressives feel represented rather than resented. He is the only DNC chair candidate to call for banning super delegates and donations from lobbyists, PACs and corporations."
