Why do we need it?
In all my years of local organizing and politics within and outside of the Democratic party, I have been made aware of the reality that change, real change, will have to come from outside of the political establishment.
Nonpartisan people do not trust political parties. They see them as too concerned with ideological problems and not enough with everyday issues. They see them as bickering and unaffected. Direct lines between policy and personal outcomes aren't drawn for average people and all they see is their quality of life diminishing.
Neoliberal policies of the past forty years have left our working-class communities decimated while individual people have gathered the wealth of small nations on the backs of working people. People see nobody willing to stand up to the status quo to say, "This is wrong". They don't see a movement designed to fight for them.
