By all means, continue to support Bernie Sanders, as I am doing. He is the candidate whose values most closely reflect my own; I do not think the "democratic socialist" label is going to be the electoral kryptonite everyone makes it out to be once Sanders is rolled out to the American people properly and his ideas are given a fair shake. I have been following Bernie Sanders ever since he was a weekly guest on the Thom Hartmann show back in the days of the old i.e. America radio network (may it rest in peace). Some call him the most honest man in government. Having followed him all these years, I am no bandwagon jumper, and I am hard-pressed to disagree with that assessment.
All I am asking is that both the inside-the-beltway types and the Bernie-or-Busters start listening to one another and start facing a certain amount of reality. You need each other. Otherwise, the bad guys are going to win.
Is anybody listening?
