I know Clinton’s loss was an upset. I know some have yet to get over it. I know some may never get over it.
But, Jordan Edwards, a Black child, is dead because a White police officer shot and killed him either out of fear or hate.
In Anaheim, an officer won’t face charges for assault and attempted murder of a young Brown child.
We still have a jacked-up health care system that should already be a single-payer system and Democrats are more passionate about proving Trump conspired with the Russians than taking care of the American people.
Our seniors are still cutting their prescription medications in half, if they can buy them at all, while also trying to decide whether to pay their rent or buy medicine.
Our Vets are dying in VA hospitals while waiting for care.
Over 70% of Floridians voted for medical cannabis to be legalized and the state Congress has yet to enact a plan to give the voters what they want and need to treat ailments and illnesses themselves.
Democrats in Congress are voting against lower prescription drug prices and young people are drowning in debt over student loans.
There is STILL a Muslim Ban in America and racial and religious profiling happens everyday.
Democrats are voting against bills without having written one better than the one they’re voting against.
These are just snapshots of the issues that matter to us.
Democrats, you’re touting yourselves as the party of the people but you seem to have forgotten for whom you work.
On second thought, maybe you haven’t forgotten.
Maybe you are working for your true bosses and that’s big corporations.
Maybe, just maybe, our donations aren’t big enough for you to consider working for us as opposed to working for them. Maybe those companies Trump us on the amount of money given to your campaigns, but while you weren’t looking, you got Trumped. Literally. And you still are losing elections across this nation.
Here’s the real deal.
Black Lives Matter.
Our Elders matter.
Our economy matters and our health care and clean water is everything.
While you worry about Trump and the Russians, the Dakota Access Pipeline and other pipelines are still an issue.
In Florida, Democrat Congresswoman Corrine Brown was found guilty of corruption. While that is a black eye for the party, we, the people, have two black eyes, a worn-out back and a broken heart from trusting you. Yet, we have a fiery spirit.
We will not allow our Elders to be neglected.
We won’t allow Black Lives to NOT matter and we won’t stand for jacked-up health care.
We won’t just protest a Republican President and Congress.
We will stand up to you, too, our own party who we trusted to fight for us.
What we’ll do is primary each of you who neglect us by turning the world’s attention from the embarrassment of Clinton’s loss, to building upon the greatness we can do together as a unit.
Have fun in DC while it lasts, because if you are one of the Democrats who are neglecting us, we are coming for your seats.
See you soon,
