Progressive Democrats of America CNM Chapter Newsletter – Black History Month

The Democrats’ Moral Dilemma 

With the rise of Michael Bloomberg in the polls, the values that have historically defined the Democratic Party are being challenged. Every day we are exposed to more and more of Bloomberg’s racist, classist, and sexist comments and actions, many of which seem to be quite similar to those of the current occupant of the White House. And yet, we hear liberal Democrats say “No one is perfect” as they justify their insistence that this Republican Light is the only one who can beat the Republican Hoax. This kind of hypocrisy sounds so similar to that which we accuse Trump Republicans of. We find him loathsome but he’s our loathsome. A caution to those who say that Bloomberg is the most electable. There are Democrats and Independents out there who still have a conscience and will vote accordingly.

Our mission is to transform the Democratic Party into a party that works for world peace by:
* changing our economy from war-centered to life-affirming,
* serving public interests rather than corporate and military agendas,
* working to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons, and
* promoting problem-solving through diplomacy and non-violence.
We will take actions to influence our policy makers toward these goals.
