Feb 26, 2017


I was a Dean supporter in this race, and didn’t really care about who won the race once he dropped out. I say that because I knew he would focus on actually building the party and recruiting candidates. Now the whole thing will be based upon the ideological splits.

We have to become the party that wants to protect manufacturing jobs again, even if means protecting outdated technology. This is extremely hard to do in a world where younger people think all technological advances are a good thing. Trump is beating us to the punch in the media by painting his brand as the guy who will protect your blue collar job.
