The establishment, corporate owned media, and national political committees like the DNC and RNC anoint a candidate and once having done so do whatever they can to undermine the candidacy of others within their party.
Far from being a new or novel approach there exists a long systemic history – the label of choice seems to always have been “radical”.
In the current campaign cycle “socialist” has become a part of the narrative with a thinly veiled attempt to equate democratic socialist reforms with communism – which is far from the truth.
Radical change is exactly what’s needed in this country, from campaign reform to walking back corporate influence and control, ad finitum.
Change though often called for seems to frighten people, the known being better than the unknown.
Such a fear serves to guarantee every existing inequity and rather than fear people should make the effort to empower themselves by doing the math rather than accepting sound bites at face value.
Hopefully the included link will serve that end and also inspire the reader to look a little deeper – to be their own person and in doing so cast their own vote rather than act as proxy for the anointed establishment candidate.
Bernie Sanders unlike Trump doesn’t present a threat to the well being of the nation, his “radicalism” is one of positive change.
In light of existing realities I submit mainstream opinions differ greatly from the mainstream of governmental representation, and that is the underlying problem.
Apologies for the language in the second photo related to the bumper sticker for those who may find it offensive – I’ve posted it before in another blog and it echoes my sentiments exactly.
