Tom Perez Stacks 2020 Convention Committees With 'From the Swamp' Nominations

Given the popularity of progressive policies in the actual country, it appears the primary goal of the DNC is to guarantee the continuous flow of corporate dollars to DNC coffers, approved consultants and lobbyists. In that sense, the whole organization seems focused first on insider jobs and wealth security; winning elections is secondary.

Proving as if there were any doubt, the Dem establishment works for the donor class, not us.

Do you fight back? If so, please describe how.

I'm an activist with a number of groups. One of them is holding a fundraiser for the 4 Embassy Protectors who are facing a year in jail and a $100,000 fine for defending the Venezuelan embassy from the illegal coup plotters. We do many other actions to help the victims of US foreign policy. That's just one of many examples.
