The Democratic party must ‘return to its historical mission of representing the working people of this country’

    During the forty years I have lived in this country, I have witnessed money being siphoned from the pockets of working people into the bank accounts of the super wealthy.

    I have watched the unions being eviscerated, leaving workers resigned to low paying, often menial, dead-end jobs.

    Student debt has risen to such an extent that many college graduates will spend much of their working lives paying back loans.

    Drug addiction is rife; a symptom of the hopelessness and disillusion felt by a large percentage of the population.

    Many of the misled crowd in Washington, D.C., last Wednesday seemed like ordinary working class people who have been brainwashed into beliefs of stolen elections and bizarre conspiracy theories.

    They have sadly placed their hopes in the wrong leader.

    The only interests the president has ever cared about are his own.

    Who then will address the rightful needs of ordinary people?

    It is high time that the Democratic party return to its historical mission of representing the working people of this country.
