Last week Al Sharpton traveled to Chicago to hold a town hall meeting with his “community” in order to discuss “gun violence”. Instead, the people erupted against Chicago Machine politics and rather than gun control, demanded a solution to the jobs and foreclosure problems.
Additionally, Wendy Pearson, an activist against school closings, finally acknowledged that the status quo was not working and change was needed:
“The manner in which we have been voting needs to change…I’m here to say to you that we have been trained to vote in a specific manner…We need to start looking at the manner in which our elected officials have been voting…if they have not voted in a manner that is beneficial to you, and your community, then you need to start voting them out.”
Pretty radical, huh? Imagine—voting your interest rather than lockstep Democrat.
Hard to say if this will result in a real change in decades-long voting habits, but at least someone is bold enough to say the unsayable—people over party.
