SANDERS AND THE NEW PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL PARTY TO REBUILD THE MIDDLE CLASS AND MINIMIZE POVERTY IN AMERICA
Sanders and New US Progressive Political Party independently financed to produce the “political revolution” unifying our currently fragmented movement cultures to achieve deep institutional and cultural reform to gain a united society truly ruled by ALL the people with meaningful input available to everyone.
SANDERS & PROGRESSIVE PARTY = FREE from pressure of elite power brokers of the ZIO-MAFIA Corporate Complex and its ZIO-MAFIA Media Lies and brain-washing propaganda.
SANDERS & PROGRESSIVE PARTY = Rely on internet tools to define grassroots guidance using new tools specially built for that purpose including aspects of Direct Democracy and forms of political and economic participatory democracy institutions that bringing our society’s investment of its wealth under full democratic control.
SANDERS & PROGRESSIVE PARTY = An economy designed to produce wealth and spread to meet the material needs of all of our people within our planet’s natural limits. Moving far beyond our ZIO-MAFIA driven hyper-competitive culture of artificially produced wealth inequality.
SANDERS & PROGRESSIVE PARTY = End concept of political parties are fundraising and marketing mechanisms used by Democrats and Republicans from the Super-Rich ($7 billion in 2012 election cycle) only responsive to their wealthy investors “pay to play” (0.0013% of US citizens + a little over 1 million lesser agents – 30,000 people gave 28%) — effectively disenfranchising 98+% of our society.
SANDERS & PROGRESSIVE PARTY = RAISE money for name recognition using millions of small donors. Sanders’ campaign has demonstrated unequivocally the grassroots support for his platform. Plus Sanders campaign earned legitimacy and news coverage afforded by the Democratic primary process and created a powerful fundraising apparatus.
SANDERS & PROGRESSIVE PARTY = Sanders campaign has built its fundraising institution in this primary and no longer needs the Democratic Party in order to continue to have an impact on presidential campaigns. This fact is Nothing short of historic in that the skeletal fundraising infrastructure has become the backbone of the new political party.
Sanders, a savvy politician and longest-serving Independent in the history of the US Congress, has more than half a year to use the presidential campaign process to continue to build this fundraising institution — Vowed to remain in the Democratic primary until the convention in July delivering the message and building the fundraising an name recognition across America with advertising on TV and news coverage (disproportionately minimal), but extremely strong internet coverage to spread his ideas.
If Sanders loses the Democratic nomination (with less than 5o% of the delegates), his campaign can use his popular support to justify a run in the general election. The Sanders campaign can explain that if Sanders is not viable a week before the general election, then he will encourage his supporters to vote for Clinton versus a Republican.
Sanders winning with the Progressive Party would be an improbable uphill struggle, given the other parties resources to campaign all at once across the country getting out their messages on-the-ground, through their elected officials and organized local chapters across the country, in a way that Sanders simply would not be able to match.
Sanders does not need to win the general election, but instead build the new political party by adding to the funding he has raised so far of $140 million from 7 million contributions, averaging around $27 and he should be abole to at least double that in the general election as Sanders name recognition continues to build especially among independents — the largest block of potential voters.
MEDIA: Sanders campaign money is not well spent on traditional corporate mass media that sells advertising and corporate propaganda in a “pay to play” two party system. Bypassing the corporate mass media and use the internet to spread ideas and create its own media and information mechanism — Like an independent 24-hour YouTube channel with significant resources ($10s of millions) for professionally produced videos coveraging Sanders’ campaigning and extensive interviews of actual people and experts supporting Sanders and political education and awareness materials produced by and for the people who support Sanders’ candidacy to amplify the party’s movement-building. Topics logically include campaign finance, income inequality, breaking up the banks, banker prosecution, institutional racism, environmental degradation, permanent US wars, public financed health care (Medicare for all), Free college tuition and education, public financed $1 trillion to building infrastructure, comprehensive institutional reform to transform society, and reasonable solutions to them — Topics that get NO air time on the corporate mass media and promote a progressive culture of activists to serve as the basis for the Progressive Political Party.
Potential Interviews = Professor Lawrence Lessig on campaign funding + Professor Bill Black on Banking + Piketty on Economic Growth + Stiglitz on Economy + Chomsky on propaganda + Michelle Alexander and Paul Butler on institutional racism and criminal justice system + Stanford Environmental Professor Mark Jacobson on transition to 100 percent renewable energy + Gar Alperovitz on creating widely shared wealth + Economics professors L. Randall Wray and James K. Galbraith on modern monetary system + other people like Andrew Bacevich, Greg Grandin and Matthew Hoh + Rev. William Barber of N.C. NAACP on the Moral Mondays movement + Karen Lewis of the Chicago Teachers Union + Cornel West and others on justice + Groups like Dream Defenders, Black Lives Matter, Black Youth Project 100, Million Hoodies, HandsUpUnited, United We Dream, GetEQUAL, 350.org, Ohio Student Association, 99Rise, Mayday, Green Party, Socialist Alternative, Democratic Socialists of America and the Working Families Party.
LOCALIZED POLITICAL BASE: Secondly, to build a new political party you must invest in local and congressional candidates for office. Invest $100+ million in on-the-ground organizing to promote new progressive candidates and convince the most progressive Democrats to finance their campaigns through the new political party, rather than the corrputed Democratic Party campaign finance system.
FACT: Sanders campaign has generated more electoral support and funding than anyone ever imagined was possible. Now producing institutional models for change must be focus to transform grassroots support into institutions that extent their life and power. Model institutions for financing elections and modern internet media, create a decentralized energy industry, Model to support worker-driven industry and worker-community owned cooperatives through public procurement and reduce reliance on multinational corporations, institution to tranform to free public internet for every American, instituions that build political and economic democracy.
SANDERS & PROGRESSIVE PARTY = Sanders campaign can build a new political party and supporting instituions committed to political and economic democracy = Vehicle for “The Political Revolution” = Seize the opportunity already made possible.
