These new progressive Congress people are the folk I’ve been waiting for; my people! And, we need more of them. Sitting back, taking it all in was never the way in my opinion. Lest we forget, at some point in history, Republicans and Democrats were pretty much interchangeable.
In my opinion, Progressives and so called Democratic Socialists have always had the voice of the people at heart. I encourage voters to start looking into the politics of these two types of representatives. They seem to be smart, forthright and communicate very clearly about their positions and where they stand.
Frankly it’s disappointing to think that for the past 70 years, we have not gotten any further than we have in economic security, justice or equity in these United States. We need progressive action that will spring us forward into a new economy and a new way of life.
Keeping black folk down and immigrants out is not the way. And not acknowledging the past is not the way either. Change is coming–and ignoring it is not going to stop anything.
We are in the 21st Century. There is a lot of work to do and a lot of corrective actions need to be taken. We, the voting people of America have to effect and affect that change–for the good of all.
This is an exciting time. Let’s make it happen.
