Sanders is NOT a "champion" of a progressive agenda. He is, at best, a mouthpiece for it. And for that I'm grateful.
But a "champion" connotes the best, the top dawg, a true hero. Sanders has proven himself to be a shill for the DNC—even when the DNC torpedoed him, he caved and gave his endorsement to Clinton. Unforgivable.
Please, Bernie, go on a speaking tour. Retire and count your blessings. Or better, actively seek out and support a true champion of a progressive agenda. Perhaps Tulsi Gabbard. Now there someone who just might prove to be the right first woman President.
Show us, Bernie, what you're willing to do to break the back of the tyrannical DUOPOLY. Show that you know we do not live in a democracy but a plutocracy, an oligarchy of the Deep State. Redeem yourself thus!
