As I was listening to NPR this morning, I heard a voice of reason, a voice of intelligence and decency, booming across the airwaves. This voice wasn’t unfamiliar to me, as I am already a big supporter of the man, but all the same it was an early morning blessing to hear Sen. Bernie Sanders on the air.
At any rate, the focus of Sanders’ rant this morning was the epic failure of the Democratic Party to represent America’s working class, the millions of men and women who struggle each day to keep their heads above water. It’s funny that Sanders would rant on this issue today as, just yesterday, I was raving the same rant about the Democrat’s failures.
As working Americans look to Washington for help and understanding, they see little more than a desert flooded with dried-out creatures seeking dollar bills to horde in their caves. Not only that, they see large, scaly reptiles working to sacrifice smaller ones to their corporate gods and slimy, side-winding belly crawlers dodging beneath the shade of dried brush so as to not agitate their large reptilian opponents.
