Just imagine Bronx-born, feminist Democratic Rep. Bella Abzug showing up to a $35,000-a-plate dinner in a dress that cost more than some people in her district made a year? And then staying for the pathetic vegan dinner to hobnob with the unimaginably wealthy celebrities and other “elites”?…
I am ashamed to admit: I voted for them all (with the exception of AOC, who is not in my district). Because I felt I had no other option. The right is too far right and the left has now become unrecognizable with #defundthepolice and insane handouts that stagnate our economy. It pains me that I fell for the promised equity of Main Street and tax parity time and time again. Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me five times, well. Let’s just say I’m done.
The fish stinks from the head down.
It is time for our system to open up and truly become a democracy for all, with representation for all, by expanding beyond the two-party system. With people who mean what they say and say what they mean, and who will fight — not to stay in power and enrich themselves, but for the people they represent.
