Michael Moore is wearing a tie? Really?

Michael Moore (click here) shared his plan to save the country on Facebook Wednesday following Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election. Titled his “Morning After To-Do List,” the “Trumpland” director listed five things voters should do if they’re feeling upset about Trump’s win on Tuesday. 

1. “Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people.”

2. Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn't let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on.

3. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn't wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that's about to begin.

4. Everyone must stop saying they are "stunned" and "shocked". 

5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: "HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!" The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Let's try to get this all done by noon today. -- Michael Moore

The DNC needs new leadership with a vision of the future. I sincerely believe the Labor Secretary is perfect. Seriously. Labor has always been the center of gravity of the DNC or at least it used to be.

The Democrats in the USA need to return unions to the landscape. We know for a fact the Middle Class is strongest when there are unions involved where they work.

Senator Bernie Sanders was amazing. He has the message the people of this country need to hear. His policies and agenda is very doable. The only thing that needs to be done with the ACA is a public option. The increase in health care insurance premiums is directly related to Americans with chronic and severe illness, such as kidney failure. Those folks should be back on Medicaid, hence a public option. Those folks need their own focus. It will relieve the continuing increases in premiums across the country.

I think Senator Sanders has the best message for the country. We need to continue to refine that message into policies and make that part of the DNC platform. 

I do agree Americans need to be more involved with their elected officials.

The popular vote is the wave of the future. We need to move in that direction.
