In order to deal with the current situation in which we have lost control of the U.S. House, Senate, and White House and lost the opportunity to place a moderate jurist on the U.S. Supreme Court, we need to understand that the current situation is the end game of a Republican plan put in place in1970. In that year, Lewis Powell, then a corporate attorney in Virginia and later a member of the US Supreme Court, wrote a memorandum to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. That memorandum became the plan the Republicans have followed ever since.
The future of the Democratic Party requires us to create our own plan. We must have vision, unity, and a solid game plan to move forward. Together.

In 2007, two Democratic Secretaries of State, Debra Bowen of California and Jennifer Brunner of Ohio, commissioned studies which established that there were major flaws in the voting system. Specifically, respected computer experts reported to each Secretary of State that the machines used to record and count votes could be tampered with easily either in person or via remote electronic access.
It is imperative for all citizens to be heard and represented. The Millennial Members of Congress, who created the Future Forum of the Democratic Party, have shared their needs with me. I feel strongly about their issues and have responded to the Future Forum members. My response can be read here.
