The Progressive Movement Has Come a Long Way — See With Your Own Eyes!

The Progressive Movement Has Come a Long Way — See With Your Own Eyes!

"The Awakening" poster - women wake up to democracy

I want people to see, with their own eyes, just how far the Political Revolution has come. Hoards of progressive candidates are running in 2018…

The reason I created the “2018 Progressive Candidates & Ballot Initiatives — A Nationwide List” is because I want people to see with their own eyes just how far the Progressive Movement, the Political Revolution, has come.

A lot of people need some eye-opening hope right now. They are the ones who cling to Establishment Democrat politicians because they think it’s the only practical path — that the progressive upstarts don’t have the numbers. Since they get their news from corporate media networks, they have no idea what is really happening.

I say, take a look. See with your own eyes.

UPDATE: The latest additions to the list:

Ruben Major for California Secretary of State – No corporate donations! Aims to restore honest elections, at least in California. Wow!

Bill Cimbrelo for Massachusetts 9th Congressional District –  former environmental chemist, Green New Deal, universal healthcare, etc. Bold progressive platform!

Tim Burns for Wisconsin State Supreme Court – Outspoken about his progressive history.

Eyes Wide Open!

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.


Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
