One of the first political bloggers, a hyper-partisan Democrat who coined the phrase netroots, has bailed from the party.
I’ve ended my hyper-partisan allegiance to the Democratic Party. In moving beyond the past decade’s partisan affair with Democrats, I am ready for a real revolution to happen in this country.
It has got to happen over the next two years, and its going to take progressives, libertarians, tea partiers, coffee partiers, conservatives… everyone that is not part of the problem (the financial/political/military elite). Get radical, first by moving beyond attachment to a single party or a political identity. Radicalize them both, go independent; whatever, and if that’s not you too, then get out of the way.
May more more from both parties join him. The only way we will have real change in this country is by independent action by citizens across the political spectrum. Forget the Republicans and the Democrats. They are corrupt, complicit, and clueless. Real change can not come from working within them.
He post the following video to explain his change. It’s familiar territory for Polizeros readers – the banksters and their increasing grasp on a way too complicit and willing government.
The near takeover of the government by financial interests has been aided and abetted by both parties. Certainly Reagan and the Bushes played huge roles in destroying regulation, but Clinton happily presided over the destruction of Glass-Steagall and Obama road to power was greased by the investment banks. Charles Gasparino’s new book “Bought and Paid For” amply documents this.
