I’m With Reason

Thank you for realizing that politics is the art of compromise. We make incremental positive changes in the US. It’s always been that way. Whenever we refuse to compromise, we lose. I think this quote by Stephen Colbert says it all:

“Yes, Obama duped young people by not doing every single thing they want. So now they’ll all vote Republican. It’s like when I want some bread, I won’t settle for a half a loaf. Instead, I will have a muffin made of broken glass.”

Paraphrase that for the current circumstances and its:

Yes, Bernie’s revolution duped progressives by not doing every single thing they want. They just managed to change the Democrat platform to its most progressive platform ever. But now, they’ll all vote third party, or my God, for Trump. It’s like when I want some bread, I won’t settle for a half a loaf. Instead I will have a muffin made of broken glass.

Like what you read? Give Jordan Bray a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
