The democratic party needs a galvanizing agenda that includes money out of politics, healthcare, education, training, justice, environment and basically one that works for the people and not the .01%. How difficult is that to put together? Where are our national democratic leaders speaking in this manner? Why are our news stations only speaking about orange faced Trump and not said agenda along with leaders that can bring it to the table. I have been trying to get thru to the DNC for about 2 years with no success. It is very frustrating being a democrat these days. Our fate seem to be in the women’s movement or the HS student anti gun movement. While that is a strong pro in context to the 60’s movements, who is leading the majority of what I call “The Reasonable” citizens – those of us that might see all sides but do see many injustices or poor processes that need to be righted??

I am retired now but was a process engineer in my career which allows me to see the process in what is occurring and analyze what, why and how to improve the process or situation. I like Lisa’s email very much and agree with the few high profile changes mentioned: publicly funded campaigns ( removing money from politics), term limits, free education, etc. The solutions are staring us in the face but we are being divided by the few powerful who just make out like bandits. Our message can be one of unity if we focus on our commonalities which are vast.
At the end of the day, the challenge is how to communicate and mobilize the priorities and needs the vast majority have in common vs. battling over variables too far down the chain where it feels more tribal.
I believe it can be done and I have ideas and strategies to share.
