i'm not devastated because i expected this.

i've expected this since they pulled this same bullshit in 2016. that's why i changed to independent and will never change party affiliation again unless we, all of us, create a third party that actually represents us

i'm not giving up. i'm not quitting. i'm not surrendering. i'm not succumbing to despair.

i'm pissed off and i will stick this out for no reason other than pure spite to outlive these fuckers just so i can spit on their graves

uspol 

oh and by third party, i don't mean the DSA

while i do think the DSA has done good in places, it's far too scattered and lacking cohesion to really get anywhere

plus it has a real problem with sexpests in its leadership for some reason and that's really concerning to me

@extinct hell yeah! and honestly, look at how far we've come getting people to vote for a self-described socialist. a few years ago, this wouldn't have been even close

uspol 

@extinct I'm not really about electoralism but I think this is a good sign

uspol 

@aidenagreen it is a bit of a litmus test if nothing else

uspol 

@pantransautie nothing, that's kind of the problem

uspol 

@extinct yeah as a person who used to participate in a lot of DSA stuff (including founding a chapter): DSA is not what we need lmao

uspol 

@shooshy can't even imagine the crap you've seen, lol

@extinct @shooshy as a former co-chair of a chapter, member of an organizing committee, and a delegate to the national convention: I second comrade shooshy's opinion so hard that my copy of robert's rules of order bursts into flame

uspol 

@melissasage @extinct genuinely feel that a lot of other folks in the North Bay chapter did great work. Also? Constantly struggling to get any support from national, and being held back by their bullshit (like the fucking cop in the national committee???? Are you kidding?????)
