23. You seem to be confusing personality with platform.

Sarandon said I believe in a way she is more dangerous [than Mr. Trump],. People always leave out the "in a way" part. Which is that she thinks a slow boil is, in a way, more dangerous than a quick boil. I agree with her in principle, but disagree that this was the right time, as the quick boil folks in charge now are much too dangerous to be applying that strategy at the moment.

But it all stems not from being too "far left" in what they want for their fellow citizens, which I would challenge you to find anything they promote you would even disagree with, but in the trust of the deliver system of those benefits. Policies that are not so radical and even normal in all other democracies.

Jill Stein is a lot like Sanders in their platforms. You just don't agree with any challenge to the Democratic party as being the sole saviour of America. I say we need to be challenged from the left. We sure as hell have been pressured and squeezed from the right in the past few decades. Democrats should heed the warning bell and work to usurp the Green party's platform out from under them instead of simply bad-mouthing them.
