Response to Coolest Ranger (Reply #46)

47. I was not and do not Support Sanders. That was just a statement on his campaign.

He is an economic warrior who appears to believe that economic justice will fix all the problems in our society. I think he is wrong. Racism was not created by the 1%, and neither was sexism.

As to his support of a primary challenge to Obama in 2012, he also failed to heed the lessons of history. Carter was primaried from the left, and that primary split the Democratic Party and helped Reagan win. Had a primary challenger from the left arose, I think Romney would have won in 2012.
