"Why Bernie vs. Hillary Matters More Than People Think"

-snip-
"....Sanders and Clinton represent two very different ideologies. Each of these ideologies wants control of the Democratic Party so that this party’s resources can be used to advance a different conception of what a good society looks like."


The full article posted at the link demonstrates why history matters now, more than ever. It is exactly this kind of article that draws me to the validity of Bernie Sanders.

I look forward to reading the responses and thoughts about what this author has to say about how and why Democrats have evolved away from the true liberal policies of FDR and LBJ.

Fires are burning this primary season. The smoke is overwhelming.

Burning bridges is the cause of the overwhelming smoke...smoke clouds the vision.

Burned bridges permanently removes the ability to retrace steps and reconsider the path not taken.

I have not racked up big numbers of discussions here at DU - I've only been here since 2003. But I sure have seen a lot, heard a lot and changed my views a lot.

I check in with DU everyday and can not figure out for the life of me what this place will sound like once the Democratic nominee has been settled on...

Will hate continue to reign? Will passions subside and be replaced with apathy? Will people go away, never to return and post again?

Will a Republican win in the fall and give us Citizens United Part Two? Replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a female Anton Scalia or Clarence Thomas?

All of the yelling and screeching and name calling and he said/she said going on now, foreshadows passionate people staying home on election day - because burned bridges will do that.
