The democratic process in America has been chipped at and piecemeal by outside forces since the birth of the nation; today, it is being attacked from within by the very leaders entrusted to protect it.
As a constituency, we grow from engaging, open and vibrant debates; “We the people” have that in our blood. Open debates let us whittle down candidates until we get close to one that mirrors our attitudes and beliefs as Democrats. The current DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz evidently does not feel she is part of that process.
Democracy is by no account perfect. As a dynamic ideology it should be open to change welcoming different voices into the mix. Debbie Wasserman Schultz
appears on paper to embody the democratic tenets we hold sacred. However, she feels that shouldn’t that include vibrant debates that are free of cronyism. As the DNC leader she scheduled only six debates — I’m confounded by her stance against expanding primary debates, even when her own constituency calls for it, this is far from what a democrat party leader should be.
The time to question her leadership is over. She has even turned against President Obama going as far to blocking the Iran resolution at DNC meeting:
“The resolution would have put the national party on record in support of the agreement reached between the U.S other world powers and Iran last month.” —The Hill
A leader displays fidelity, honesty and puts his/her ambitions aside for the greater good of the party; Schultz does not exhibit the leadership traits that represent DNC and certainly not that of we the voters that are the heart of the DNC.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz:
She is bad democracy
She is bad for the party
We demand that she is removed from her position as DNC chair.
That’s why I created a petition to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate.
