Charles Ayers — I think you’re wrong about Sanders, especially the “loony” part. That’s something Right Wingers (and Hillary, who’s Really Just The Same!) tell themselves as they see The Cold War Generation dying off, and younger members of society pointing to Europe and saying, “Democratic Socialism is bad…why? Because of an outdated paranoia for some thug like Stalin?”
National Health Care, A Minimum Wage that people can live on, and Rebuilding the Social Safety Net are only “loony Socialist” to people who’ve bought the Clinton/Bush NeoLiberal Lie. Are you doing better than you were when Jimmy Carter was President — Hell, when Gerald Ford was President? If you are, then why are you here commenting on Medium, rather than chucking widows and orphans out out of their homes while lighting your cigars with $100 bills…?
