Recent events have raised the hopes and dreams of progressives in the US. I think the popularity of Bernie Sanders is a wonderful sign of this. It wasn’t so long ago that the word “liberal” was being used like it was a dirty word (let alone “socialist”!)
I’m still a moderate. I know change will be slow, but I just want to know that this country is still moving forward, and not back to the (anti-science, feudalistic) dark ages. It is a good time to be alive.
