I highly recommend that you read a new article in Medium by Bernie Sanders. It hits all the bases, including making the point that in order to get progressive reforms, we must elect progressive candidates at all levels of government, not just at the top.
I (once again) thank Sanders for making it ok to be a liberal and a progressive. The right almost succeeded in turning the word “liberal” into an insult. The right had their chance to govern this country, and they shot themselves in the foot, repeatedly. But now, how can anyone look at where we were as George W Bush was leaving office, and where we are now, and argue that we aren’t much better off now.
