The frustration level among progressives is at an all-time high. It won't be dropping anytime soon.

With impeachment off the table and immunity on the table, grassroots pressure is building from the Left to the Right. Across the political spectrum, people want more attention to the issues.

But like George Carlin said about our leaders, "It's a big club... and you ain't in it.  You and I are not in the big club."

Naturally, if a club didn't want me as its member, I would just quit showing up to support the club. I would tell people not to go to the club meetings anymore. I would create or find another club that accepted me for who I was and didn't force me to subvert my morals or principles. Or that didn't ask me to censor my thoughts on politics and current events. 

It's time we stopped being part of the club. We all need to exit stage left or stage right.

We can meet in the lobby and form our own club with new leaders who will make this club that keeps taking and taking and screwing and screwing and ignoring and ignoring obsolete.

Make the club wish it had its membership back. And when they come crawling to us to rejoin, tear up the offers we get in the mail. 

Hang the phone up when they call. Delete the emails they spam us with.

Let history show that parties and interests that form clubs and keep Americans out are not allowed to own Washington.

This isn't about a Nader. A McKinney. A Barr. Or whomever would like to challenge our nation's broken, corrupt, rigged system that the big club enriches at the expense of the people.

It's about righting the wrongs our leaders have allowed to be the norm for far too long.

It's about repealing the reforms that are forming a nation we wouldn't want our children to grow up in.
