Bernie Sanders

Is there one policy position in Bernie’s slate that you disagree with? I can’t find one. IMO, he stands for everything that we need to re-make America.

Some think he should take a tougher stance vis a vis Israel. He says that he’s pro-Israel, but would like to see a left-wing government installed there. With this I agree. And, besides, I don’t find this issue particularly relevant to a discussion of what he hopes to achieve in this country.

Some think he should speak more to the needs of the blacks and latinos. No doubt he will. And, besides, those reforms he seeks will better the lot of the entire population, minorities included. Can we not assume that he will be on the right side of every domestic issue?

I have now read many, many testimonials to Bernie on Facebook. These are very often enlightening and also very encouraging, and I recommend these threads to you. The only respondents who don’t get it are the ones who have been taught to fear “socialism”, though most couldn’t describe it to you with any degree of coherence.

We thought Obama was too good to be true – a black man who could win one, and then two, terms in office. But now, here comes Bernie, who is REALLY too good to be true. We hardly deserve him. Let’s get him elected.
