Episode 119: Party Suppression on the DL
The 2 Party system: Most hate it; few fully understand exists; fewer are prepared to stand in opposition to it. I’m joined by new volunteer Lou Bitler to explore the issues of our election system by looking at the Dem primary in NY: which is a one party state in various areas. Private money in Politics, who controls the voting, and DSA Vs radical election strategy are discussed. Lou and I also go over basic positions on police abolition and other concerns. Also a reference to Bullworth, an unknown classic, buried in the same way for the same reasons as Alt parties.
