So much of your dislike of Sanders is based on two issues that I think you’re mistaken on.

1) You base your claim that Sanders economic numbers are magical thinking on poor logic that boils down to more of the “No we can’t” flavor of political pessimism that currently dominates mainstream politics.

Meanwhile, there’s this, in which that argument is rebutted:

2) Your caricature of Sanders as “little more” than “a professional protester” who gets nothing of substance done ignores everything Sanders has accomplished through legislative amendments and that his legislative effectiveness ratings have met or exceeded benchmarks during his tenure.
