Hi, everyone! I guess you can say I’m the founder of the Progressive Independent Party as it’s what I called for in a petition launched last week, and honestly, everything has been a whirlwind since! I know many of us are busy with volunteering for Bernie, I am as well, since the state I reside in, good ole’ Indiana, has yet to vote in the primary. So, first let me thank you for joining us and lending us some of your time.
We are on the brink of a very big movement, the “political revolution” as Bernie Sanders calls it, and one which we are preparing for; right here, right now. And although there are no guarantees which way the wind may blow by the time of the general election, we all know “in our bones” it’s time to take our government back, it’s time to finally have a vibrant, exciting, VIABLE third party in this country, a place where many of us who feel disenfranchised; Progressives, Greens, Democratic Socialists, Independents, and frustrated Democrats and Republicans alike, can feel empowered in the promise of democracy in our county.
There is a sense in the air, if we miss this opportunity to unite together in our common cause, it could be decades before the enthusiasm for another movement, like the one we see today filling stadiums and rallies, arises again. As Bernie Sanders’ supporters, contributors, and volunteers, we all know exactly what’s at stake if we fail this opportunity, for our country and for our planet, which is why we should put pride and splintered progressive politics aside and not hesitate to unite.
I won’t lie to you – what I am asking of all of us is to build something which has never been done before in US history; build a long-term, truly viable third party. I believe we can do it; we can do it together with the same enthusiasm and love we have for Bernie Sanders with our mission to continue the fight and keep the progressive fire alive for many generations to come.
It’s a leap, but I’m asking you to believe in me, the small team I’ve selected so far, and most importantly, to believe in yourselves as an integral part of all change moving forward! We have all been inspired by the Sanders candidacy and it was Bernie’s message of unity which inspired me to write the petition in the first place, and it’s in the spirit of Bernie’s message which will inspire this party to succeed.
Thank you, Araquel Bloss[/ultimate_heading][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Membership Sign Up” main_heading_color=”#ffffff” sub_heading_color=”#ffffff” main_heading_line_height=”desktop:30px;” sub_heading_font_size=”desktop:22px;” sub_heading_line_height=”desktop:22px;” main_heading_font_size=”desktop:32px;” main_heading_margin=”margin-bottom:70px;”][/ultimate_heading][contact-form-7 id=”4″]
