Maybe it is time for Senator Sanders to stop trying to be America’s conscience. How dare he point out over and over again that we have become a country that caters to special interests, that involves itself in self-perpetuating wars without end, that worships the rich and famous no matter how ill-gotten their fortunes, oppresses people of color despite the advances made way back in the days the Civil Rights movement, and denies millions the right to a better wage, better education, and better health coverage. Our current president came into office with high ideals and goals and learned quickly the reality of how this country operates …and that it’s run by, for the most part, bureaucrats and political hacks.
Please, Senator, leave well enough alone!
