This space is dedicated to the proposition that we need to know the history of the struggles on the left and of earlier progressive movements here and world-wide. If we can learn from the mistakes made in the past (as well as what went right) we can move forward in the future to create a more just and equitable society. We will be reviewing books, CDs, and movies we believe everyone needs to read, hear and look at as well as making commentary from time to time. Greg Green, site manager

Wall Street CEO: "It can't be Bernie" Our Revolution Heather Gautney
If Bernie runs, he will be up against the entire financial establishment. Wall Street bankers and corporate lobbyists are lining up to oppose him in 2020 because he has a long history of taking on big money interests and oligarchs.
Ideas like universal health care are now mainstream positions among a majority of Americans -- which is exactly why a health care industry group on Thursday launched a digital ad campaign against Medicare for All. And it’s exactly why the CEO of a giant bank just stated with regard to the next U.S. President: “It can’t be Bernie.”
Just last week, the Our Revolution Texting Team turned out more than 30,000 voters for the California Democratic Party’s elections. We helped to elect 646 progressives to positions within the California Democratic Party -- the biggest state party in the country.
Victories like this in California and the Unity Reform Commission’s success in ending superdelegate control of the Democratic nomination process are critical to leveling the playing field in U.S. politics. These victories don’t happen by accident. They take constant pressure and grassroots organizing.
Each of us will have to dig deep. Let’s finish what we started in 2020 and get Bernie Sanders into the White House!
