For the last 40 years, both parties have consistently moved to the right.  Today, the GOP is so far right that the majority of the party are extremists. 

The Democrats who used to be left of center, FDR Democrats, are now right of center because again, for the last 40 years, corporatists control the Democratic Party.   

Bottom line is both parties work for, cater to and represent the economic interests of corporations and the ultra rich in return for massive campaign cash. 

More than 70% of the electorate have ZERO impact on policy. The working class hardly exists. 

America is a total disaster and has fallen well behind other western democracies in quality of life.  We are long overdue for millions of citizens to surround the capital and demand that we have a government that works for the people and not just the 1%. Sanders 2020

Why is Corporate Media Asking Democrats to Move to the Center?

Published on Mar 7, 2019

The corporate media is telling the Democratic party to "Move to the center" as well as telling the American public  that progressives have gone "too far left" 

But these so called far left policies, are actually the center of America.

You can't turn on a cable TV news channel these days without seeing some TV pundit or panelist saying that Democrats need to "move to the middle."

What the heck do they mean?  Do they mean that Democrats should say it's just fine that over 30 million Americans have no health care?

Does "moving to the middle" mean that we love that the big banks make hundreds of billions in profits by ripping us off and putting our economy at risk? That fossil fuel and chemical industries should continue to poison us and our planet?

That it's just fine if drug companies and for-profit colleges and Charter Schools keep ripping us off? That it's just fine that the American Dream is dead and there's no need to bring back unions and union jobs?

What is "the center" beyond the status quo?
