The national Democratic Party elected a new chairman today, Tom Perez, an Obama - Clinton troll of Wall Street, the Podesta Group, and Washington D.C. lobbyists. The progressive candidate, Keith Ellison, finished second and was given an ill-defined job as Deputy Chairman. This election demonstrates that the DNC has learned nothing from losing the last election running the corporatist, opportunistic Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The fact that the party has lost almost 1000 legislative seats over the past ten years does not appear to phase the corporatist demos. They still insist on holding hands with the criminals on Wall Street, sucking-up to the Israeli lobby, and putting forth fence-riding mealy-mouth candidates is their modus operandi for winning despite the fact that they don't win.
With Perez's ascension, progressives can forget about single-payer healthcare, free college tuition, a reformed tax system, reforming Wall Street greed, elimination of bogus free trade deals (Perez supported TPP), and most other progressive initiatives that Senator Sanders put forth.
Progressives are stuck with a party of greedy insiders who live with the phony notion that they can be successful by working for the top 10% while ignoring the bottom 90%. The bottom 90% are begging for a progressive agenda to improve their economic and social standing and they have no where to turn except to a charlatan like Donald Trump and an uncaring GOP. The DNC had an opportunity to become the true party of the people but in the end they sold out, The DNC is dead!!!!!!
