Things are shaping up for a progressive, revolutionary wave. There’s a real chance for America to claim both a progressive Administration and a Democratic Senate majority from the 2020 election. Certainly, more unbought and unbossed progressives will be elected to Congress.
Even non-revolutionary Democratic candidates are building campaigns that are based on progressive ideas. Their plans are watered down, of course, compared to those of strong progressives; they’ll never get on the “Revolutionary Progressive Candidates” list. But in some areas of the nation, perhaps dominated by far-right ideology, these tentative progressives are considered socialist far-lefties.
We have Bernie Sanders to thank. His 2016 political revolution shattered the silence that shrouded a corrupt political system and runaway inequality. This election cycle, nearly all Democratic candidates are riffing off The Bern.
The Revolutionary Wave, State By State
As of today, 82 progressive candidates have jumped into the revolutionary wave that now surges across the United States. Most are Democratic, some are Green. All of them vigorously support Medicare for All. None take corporate cash.
Yet, it’s early. Many more revolutionary progressives will join the 2020 race for office. It’ll be hard to keep up with their number. Please don’t hesitate to inform me of revolutionary candidates in your region who need to be on the list; put your “two cents” in the comments, thank you.
Please share this post (red buttons) to support 2020 progressives. Send some cash to your favorite candidates. When the revolutionary wave takes command of Washington in 2020, the United States will once again lead — with solutions that solve plaguing problems here at home and around the world. #MedicareForAll #GreenNewDeal #EqualityForAll #NoMiddleRoad
Below, are the 2020 numbers, state by state. California and New York are in the lead, with the greatest number of revolutionary progressives competing for election. Illinois and Texas follow. You may also clearly see which states suffer the most from a lack of progressive vision, at least so far. Don’t worry. It’s early. Even red states like Florida (where I live) will eventually offer up a few strong progressive candidates for the 2020 election.
Follow the Revolutionary Wave
We don’t have the luxury of time. With the climate emergency on our hands, which requires immediate effective action, the results of the 2020 election may spell our salvation or our doom. I do not believe anyone — short of a strong, progressive, ant-corruption President in the White House — will galvanize the large-scale governmental action needed to deal with this crisis.
To say that the 2020 election is important, is an understatement. It is vital that we follow the progress of the revolutionary wave, and support the progressive candidates who are fighting the Good Fight along the way. To help all of us to be efficient in this effort, I’ve set up a “Progressive Candidate and Policy” social media news stream.
The news stream combines social media updates from the leading progressive candidate support organizations: Our Revolution, Justice Democrats, and Brand New Congress. It also includes social updates from all the revolutionary progressive candidates running for national office.
The “Progressive Candidate and Policy” news feed provides a central starting point from which you may “like,” “follow,” and “share” the best candidate updates with your friends and family. I hope you’ll find it helpful.
