Level 1

Realizing dystopian novels were a commentary on potential future events that were preparing you for the rebellion and that’s why you read them.

Level 2

Realizing these events were already going on, and that it was a modern day attempt to wake you up to a corrupted system you are a part of without being aware.

Level 3

Watch V for Vendetta and get hyped. Vote, post political articles on Social Media in an attempt to make others aware “hey guys, you seeing this shit? Wtf man, people are racists and corporations bought our government.. that sucks, right, like, we should all be upset about this, I read about this… heyyyy.”

Level 4

Find a local progressive group like Justice Dems or Our Revolution, figure out who to support and volunteer once. Just so you can say “I was out there making calls and/or knocking doors!”

Level 5

Actually get involved yourself. Try a PTA meeting, go to a school board or township council meeting. Research your representative and lobby for your interests. The larger the group to do this the more successful, because dollars are powerful but ballots get counted. Find a local progressive group to join and start recruiting. Organization and unification are the establishments and oligarchs biggest weakness at the moment. You want to say you helped? This is helping.

Win

If you find that there is no candidate that represents your interest in your district AND you are qualified for that position, Run for something yourself. Here is a good guide for what “qualified” means: https://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/videos/news/2016/06/16/86017378/

Level Up

Progressives, I offer you a challenge:

Vote and bring at least one other person who doesn’t usually vote with you to the polls (minimum).

It is your job right now to figure out what level you’re on, and between now and November; Level Up. Do just a little bit better. We can push just 1 Level Up when shit is this fucked up, I know we can, we read those books on level 1, it’s our job.

PS: It will help you sleep at night.

Our ascendant movement cannot truly assume national leadership without welcoming the support of those who are not always with us. It’s not selling out. It’s called winning. -Jeff Weaver

Many are expressing concern about Hillary Clinton's endorsement of Andrew Gillum's campaign for governor of Florida — not to mention Bloomberg and DWS.

I have also heard concerns that centrists who prevail in Democratic primaries always expect progressives to actively support them in the general election but the centrists don't vigorously back prevailing progressives.

These two sentiments seem to be in direct conflict.

All of you know I have policy differences with Secretary Clinton. Bloomberg and I are not even in the same universe. And DWS? I'm pretty sure she still considers me an "ass" and "particularly scummy."

Andrew Gillum is in a historic fight in Florida after winning a hard-fought primary. As he has pointed out, people endorse his candidacy because they support his platform and not the other way around. We should be proud that we have built such a powerful movement that Secretary Clinton is now rallying behind Gillum's progressive candidacy.

So I, for one, appreciate those Democrats who are not aligned with the progressive wing of the Party who are stepping up to support Gillum.

Our ascendant movement cannot truly assume national leadership without welcoming the support of those who are not always with us. It's not selling out. It's called winning.

Forever Forward!

How is this going to work? Before the primaries were with just two people running as dems. Now there is a bunch of faux progressives and biden . So whoever raises the most right away and wins states right away? Won't some drop out after the first few months?
