37. Perhaps, I misread your intentions and you misread mine

When I asserted that Sanders was selfish, I didn't mean that he ran against Hillary for to somehow benefit himself. I don't believe that for a minute. What I meant was that he, like the "true believer' he is, he put the cause, the REVOLUTION, above the needs of the people the cause is supposed to serve.

A true believers get so wrapped up in their causes that they often forget why they took up the cause to start with. If, starting out, Bernie would have known that his candidacy might help in any way to result in a Trump Presidency, would he have still run? If the answer to that question is "yes", then he is indeed selfish.
