Bernie Sanders ran as a Democrat in the 2016 primary. Like it or not, that began a dialogue about what the Democratic Party really stands for. It didn’t mean that everyone in the Democratic Party unanimously embraced socialism…but it started a conversation.
Sanders is an environmentalist, he’s for single payer healthcare, he seems more concerned with income inequality than Trump or Clinton.
We can criticize our party. We can evaluate past Presidents. We can even admit that the American system has flaws.
Even among American socialist, people will disagree.
But one thing is for sure, whether you consider yourself a liberal, a socialist, or a democrat, we’d better learn to work toward some common goals if we want to defeat Donald Trump.
