Listen, Liberal. Whatever Happened to the Party of the People?�

Recommended Posts

Just out this week the author of "What's the Matter with Kansas?" brings us his latest book on the political state of America. It should be required reading for all liberals. Frank details how the Democratic party intentionally abandoned the working class and the New Deal under Presidents Clinton and Obama. They have given us NAFTA, MFN for China, Workfare, mass incarceration, a Wall Street bailout, mandatory subsidies to the insurance industry, etc. Clinton even had a secret deal worked out with Newt Gingrich to privatize Social Security, Thankfully, a blowjob in the Oval Office sidetracked that deal. Our party has been stolen from us. Frank documents how that happened and why.

 

Frank details how we've been sold the great lie that we have to vote for a neoliberal candidate because the Republcans are so much worse. He explains how only a Democrat could have gotten the dismantling of the New Deal passed. How only a Democrat could have deregulated the banks and the derivatives market, which led to the crash of 2008. Most importantly, he explains how we don't have to put up with it anymore. We can take the party back.
