Some good articles [11/9]. But please give us more articles on how we analyze and organize to recover from years of disastrous neglect of our base (Let’s define and refine) and swing voters. Anti-Trump is not enough, except for our core liberal supporters.
Peace, Dr. James R. Anderson
I’ll keep an eye peeled and please send along anything you find of interest.
Did you read the piece on the recent “Autopsy” of the Dems 2016 campaign? There is a good executive summary but I would urge you to read the entire 33-page report. It’s very well written and, to my mind, spot on about problem and solution. We had it featured in The Commoner Call recently. You can find it at: https://www.
thecommonercall.org/2017/11/ 06/autopsy-what-killed-the- democratic-party/
Let us hope someone at the DNC and DPW takes it to heart, but as I detail in a recent story and cartoon (11/20), big money has their ear and heart. ( https://www.thecommonercall.

It is a challenge. There is so much damage being done by Trump and crew and I am always a little surprised to see how may people are unaware about so much of what is happening, and yet at the same time we need articles like we posted recently about some of the successes of the recent elections (two governorships and a number of progressive and even socialist victories in local elections – a black immigrant mayor in Montana!).
If you haven’t already, check out and follow the ongoing stories on political messaging in the ever growing “Your Brain On Politics” archive on The Commoner Call home page. This is a HUGE area of opportunity for possible reform and redemption of the Democratic party and winning elections through really connecting with voters. ( https://www.thecommonercall.

As always, thanks for reading and writing.
