There is an organization called Draft Bernie For A People’s Party. In the March 23, 2017 weekly conference call, they had an experienced organizer explain exactly why we don’t just reform the Democratic Party.
The Draft Bernie organization sent an email summary of the conference call from which I quote.
Last night on the second call, we were joined by Bill Bianchi, the former head of the Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) in Chicago and now a member of Draft Bernie, and Lee Camp, comedian and host of Redacted Tonight.
Bill Bianchi traced the history of many failed attempts to bring progressive ideas into the corporate-controlled Democratic Party over the years. Not even Bernie Sanders with his millions of followers have been able to make a dent in the party after his historic run in the Democratic primary. Bill thinks it’s necessary to fight the corporate Democrats by drafting Bernie to unite progressive groups into one huge movement and people’s party.
Lee Camp emphasized the impact of election fraud that has been documented by experts for well over a decade. He described how it was used in the primary to thwart Bernie’s victory. He ended by telling us to, “Keep fighting”!
Here is the audio of the conference call. Bill Binachi’s part starts within the first 2 minutes of the audio.
