In the entire United States there just over 3000 Counties.
Political party organizations are based by county.that means each party has for approximately 50,000 to 60,000 people involved as regular volunteers including the state and federal level and if you were not part of that 50,000 to 60,000 people then you have no right to complain about anything that happens in America because you’re sitting on your lazy butt watching football or soap opera or scandal or real housewives or whatever stupid thing there is instead of caring enough to donate to the five hours per week of your time.
if you are a single mother and you’re working three jobs and raising two kids, you get a free pass, nobody else does.
I do not know a single human being, of course, I live in an entitled middle-class white world but I don’t know a single person that doesn’t have 3 to 5 hours a week and $5 to $10 a week that they could not give both to their favorite party and if everybody in America did that we would have a very different set of political parties and a very different government.
The party is only an assembly of its pieces. look at the Pat Robertson model in the 1980s, his followers took over the GOP and even though he was never elected president, his policies have controlled it ever since. The Dems could use the reverse to shift the DNC away from corporatism, there are about 450 DNC members and yes, they are “superdelegates” so not only would you, as a DNC member have about the same amount of influence over the party ans a member of congress has over the us govt, you would get to have an outsized role in selecting your party’s presidential candidate. so, if anyone is unhappy with the direction of the DNC, they should get up off their fat asses and go to work, otherwise they are just entitled complainers. I was active in county politics from 2000-2004 and was offered the state committeman position for our county within four years!i busted my butt, but then we moved out of the county, and we had a new born, so since then, i have only occasionaly volunteered and never again taken on the responsibility of leadership. but the path is not complicated. donate about 200 hours or so per year and take on any responsibility the party asked (i took over volunteer coordinating) and you will make state committee within 4-6 years, maybe sooner, if you are in a small county), then from state, you will probably be another 4-10 years making the DNC, and from there, you simply organize other DNC members and recurit likeminded people to join the party and work their way up. taking over a party is hard work and requires patience, but it is not complicated nor impossible.
