In the wake of Donald Trump’s election, have you found yourself–long a liberal, perhaps you even called yourself “progressive”–wondering why the Democratic establishment has failed us so many times over?
Were you disappointed when Bernie Sanders promised to work with Trump? When President Obama and Secretary Clinton asked us to “give him a chance?” When they kept letting opportunities to stand up against Trump’s cabinet picks, executive orders and blatant, dangerous lies fly past them?
Because I was too. I was a longtime progressive liberal, and while I found myself regularly frustrated with the Democrats, I didn’t feel I had a better option. After all, you move at all to the right of the Democrats and you start getting real racist, real fast. And what was to the left? Jill Stein? Like, no thank you.
