Bernie Slanders: How The Democratic Party Establishment Suffocates Progressive Change -
"The Democratic Party establishment has recently found itself discomforted by Senator Bernie Sanders’ campaign to return the party to its modern roots of New Deal social democracy. The establishment’s response has included a complex coupling of elite media and elite economics opinion aimed at promoting an image of Sanders as an unelectable extremist with unrealistic economic policies. The response provides a case study showing how the Party suffocates progressive change. Every progressive knows about the opposition and tactics of the Republican Party. Less understood are the opposition and tactics of the Democratic Party establishment. Speaking metaphorically, that establishment is a far lesser evil, but it may also be a far greater obstacle to progressive change." ‎· Eivind

@saeedgreen: A bit too right leaning for me, but not bad at all ;) ‎· Eivind
well he's in America, if he were European he would have been to your liking I guess, the main thing is that he really considers the wishes of the low earning and vulnerable parts of society which makes him awesome ‎· SaeedTheGiraffe ?
@saeedgreen: He's very much to my liking now. I was just playing with perspective :) ‎· Eivind
