IT is time for the people to take the Democratic Party back from the dinos, the third way democrats, and the party officials who have more in common with ceos and executives of the bank-financial cabal, the military-industrial complex, and the 1% than us. It is not the time to try to start a third party, we do not have the time (it takes decades) or the resources. The Green Party and the Libertarian Party will never be able to offer a serious challenge to our political system. It is time to continue the political revolution +Senator Bernie Sanders started with his campaign for president (he would have defeated the drumpf/trump-pence ticket), the revolution that saw the ouster of the conniving debbie wasserman-schultz as chair of the DNC and incorporation of many of the Sanders proposals  to the Clinton-Kaine presidential platform. It is time to endorse, support financially and through activism, the Bold Progressive politics of the PCCC / Progressive Change Campaign CommitteeOur Revolution and We must demand the DNC return the party to the people it was and is supposed to represent, protect and provide for, the poor, the working and middle classes, the retired, vets, students, families, all ethnic and religious groups, the 99%,  Americans one and all. Listen to the words of +Senator Elizabeth Warren just days after the election and become a member of the Elizabeth Warren Wing of the Democratic Party. With enough of us committed to the progressive ideals she champions the Elizabeth Warren Wing of the Democratic Party will be the Democratic Party! The first step is to determine the next chair of the DNC. Please sign this petition to the DNC for +Representative Keith Ellison D MN to be the next Chair of the DNC. And become members of the PCCC , Our Revolution and!

The declining middle class is sick and tired of establishment economics, establishment politics, and the establishment media. People are tired of working longer hours for lower wages, of seeing decent paying jobs go to China and other low-wage countries, of billionaires not paying any federal income taxes, and of not being able to afford a college education for their kids – all while the very rich become much richer.
Voters know these problems — yet they chose Donald Trump as their next president. That means the Democratic Party needs to look itself in the mirror and work tirelessly to become once again the party that working people know will work for their interests.
That's why I believe that Rep. Keith Ellison is the right person to lead the Democratic National Committee.
Keith is one of the most progressive members of Congress, and he was an early supporter of our political revolution. He is a co-chair of the House Progressive Caucus, a strong believer in grassroots politics, and someone who would be enormously effective in leading the Democratic Party against President Donald Trump.
You cannot be a party which on one hand says we're in favor of working people, we're in favor of the needs of young people but we don't quite have the courage to take on Wall Street and the billionaire class. People do not believe that. You've got to decide which side you're on.
Keith Ellison knows the importance of rejecting the policies of the political establishment and wealthy campaign contributors. He is prepared to take on the billionaire class and all forms of bigotry. He vigorously supports a $15 minimum wage, opposes fracking and dangerous oil pipelines, and he wants to get big money out of politics.
I don't think the political establishment and the billionaire class would like Keith Ellison as the DNC chair. Good.
Keith also understands the stakes of what might happen under the Trump Administration. He knows just how dangerous it will be for Muslims, people of color, immigrants, our LGBT sisters and brothers, and so many others. His experience and perspective would be key to leading the fight against Trump.
I'm sure a lot of you have some feelings about the Democratic National Committee. The truth is that it is an important entity to build, support, and maintain if we are to have the chance to organize and win in the coming elections while Trump is president.
We must also do everything we can to elect Democrats to Congress in 2018, and to take back the White House in 2020. We need a Democratic National Committee led by a progressive who understand the dire need to listen to working families, not the political establishment or the billionaire class.
That is why I support Keith Ellison to be the next Chair of the Democratic National Committee, and why I hope you'll join me in advocating for him to lead the DNC.
