There’s no call for reform - real substantive reform because Dem’s never rise above marketing/selling. Everything about Dems is about their look. The electorate are NOT particularly brilliant. Just look at how many people voted for Clinton and Trump. A thinking electorate would have simply ignored the crooks and voted Green. When it comes to policy, the greens are the ones that offered virtually EVERYTHING that most folks wanted. But virtually no one voted for them. They were on enough ballots around the country to win. But no, there are all these major compelling reasons not to go with the greens. Instead, just keep voting for millionaire’s and billionaire’s like Clinton/Trump who are just SO painfully in the pockets of their fellow crooks.
No, Greens are not perfect, but they have integrity - something people are just wishing/despairing the dem’s will someday embody. But decades go by and too many of us just won’t see corruption even when it’s blatantly obvious.
To my mind the major reasons we have a fucked country/world is because we keep voting the same bastards into office and never seem to learn. I wrote to many people about the greens, and most of the response I got back were SO defensive, repeating propaganda, and various insults - like you’re just voting for Trump by voting Green. But no one seems to realize unless we vote for what WE want, we don’t get it - period. Green had all the right policies. If the people were behind them (like in other countries) we’d have a shot. But as long as we keep up the same old same old, then we just get the same old shit.
