Our friends the Pumas have just announced this amazing piece of news on their website : they have created a New Democratic party.

Here is the presentation they make :

"Hello Puma PAC,
Goodbye Howard Dean. Goodbye Barack Obama. Goodbye Nancy Pelosi. Goodbye Donna
Brazile. You have not only lost the White House for the Democratic Party. Today
you have brought the Democratic Party to the brink of irrelevancy altogether.
John McCain has played you all like a piano.

Today we say GOODBYE to the OLD Democratic Party. The OLD Democratic Party has
led us to DISASTER. John McCain and Sarah Palin will win in November by a
landslide.


TODAY, August 29th 2008, Puma PAC has started a new political party:

THE NEW DEMOCRATIC PARTY
We have a website launching tonight. at
www.thenewdemocraticparty.org
and www.ndp.org
We will be modeled on Alice Paul’s National Woman’s Party. We will NOT be
running candidates. We WILL be endorsing candidates.
We will be the Party for All Disaffected Democrats who are FINISHED WITH THE OLD
DEMOCRATIC PARTY. We are NOT Republicans, though millions of us will vote
McCain/Palin in November.

Our Platform is the Platform of the TRUE Democratic Party
•   Healthcare for All
•   Equal Rights
•   Reproductive Rights
•   Worker Protections
•   Envmtl Protections
•   Fair Immigration Policy
•   Help for working class college students
•   Good public schools

WE MUST PREVENT A REPUBLICAN TAKEOVER OF THE ELECTORATE. WE NEED A POLITICAL
PARTY FOR ALL THE MILLIONS WHO WANT TO BOLT THE DEMS AFTER TODAY’S FIASCO."

This is a crucial moment in American politics.
This will not be not short-lived. This is not anecdotical.
This new party will  not concern only a minority. For the division of the party is deep, profound, impossible to heal.
Let's bet a lot of disappointed Democrats will join this new party in the coming months, even if the tradition of American politics is not a third party system.

Today's situation is totally unknown : that's why old ways of thinking are not relevant.
To all those who think this new party won't work because it is not conform to the American political system, we say :
you are surely not aware of the force of the anti-Obama movement, and the strength of this new coalition...
No doubt it will succeed !
