3. The left is already fractured.

 

We used to win back when we focused on economic issues and tried to raise all boats.

I am not sure what we are focused on now, but we aren't standing by all working people.

Age discrimination is a terrible thing in the workplace. Wages need to rise. We need some form of single payer, something that spreads the high cost of today's medical care across as many billfolds as possible.

We need relief for people repaying student loans as well as affordable education and post-secondary vocational training.

We need safer schools, better public transportation, better roads, help for the poor, fewer, maybe even no homeless, more home ownership, more help and stability for renters and so much change on economic issues that affect the lives of most of us ordinary people.

I'm just starting with the obvious changes we need to make.
