We need more of this. Donald Trump must be confronted.
This is what I’m trying to do with “The 99 Percenters” movement. So I humbly offer the name mentioned above. Whatever we call it–let’s start now. No matter what happens in 2016 elections. A progressive movement is more than just 1 candidate or election. Even if Bernie wins the White House we still need to takeover the Congress and state legislatures/governorships:
The energetic Sanders supporters, including the Millennials who voted so heavily for Bernie, could form a New Progressive movement to exercise a policy pull on the establishment Democrats before November and to be a growing magnet after November with the objective of taking over the Democratic Party starting with winning local elections. This will have long-term benefits for our country.
