I'll keep this lead-in short, since I'm doing it to get a video up and don't know how else to do it.
However, I'll promptly add that Debbie, aka The Sane Progressive, seems to nail it and pull things together better than anyone else I am aware of. I realize there are many on OEN who still advocate for Bernie, as both Debbie and I strongly did, independently (and I still thank him for what he did, and personally see a man struggling to do his best in a distorted system, though can't find argument with what Deb says here). Criticisms strongly encouraged, as I'm sure Debbie would want.
I know there are also many Russiaphobes here and particularly in the MSM, to which I can only say, "Please answer Debbie's question on this in her 45 minute video"--yes, that's longer than anyone has time for, but "jump through" at least. I find it amazing what you take away from doing so, in most videos.
We ARE up against a homogenized duopoly that is deeply entrenched and real answers to redirecting the ship we call America are few and far between.
But awareness is the first step to change, as always, and that journey of a thousand miles always begins... well, you know that.
I would also add as a P.S. that if we'd come on strong for Jill Stein, as many of us did, we would have at least cracked that door open, and there is even no theoretical reason we could not have gotten her in, with "a surprise attack" if nothing else. I imagine some of these ideas are anathema to those who remain focused on Trump (it's hard not to, I well know, and even had a large rash breakout on my upper torso that I attributed to my "Trumpitis" disease! The docs agreed).
So this is "stale news" according to some, having come out on Saint Patty's Day, but I'd call it Most Vital and where we absolutely need to start. Surely food for thought, if noting else. [End of Geery rant.]
For the Sane Progressive rant
Ms. Lusignan is on FB and you can watch as many of her videos as you may desire.
