But what of the supporters of Bernie Sanders? How are they feeling? Where will they place their trust now?
The article below gives a good summation of the situation regarding the left flank of the Democratic Party. I sympathize with the Bernie Sanders supporters. At the same time I see no point in supporting Jill Stein for President. We simply cannot afford another debacle as in 2000.
But supporting the movement for social justice must continue. There are many ways to do this.
For now we can be glad that at least the Democratic Party platform includes several of the Sanders' proposals on health care and college tuition. At least it is a start. Now it is up to all of us to continue the effort for peace and economic fairness. But a Trump in the White House is simply inconceivable. We must fight for justice while being smart about electoral politics at the same time.
Where Do the Sanders Supporters Go From Here?
