As someone who follows american politics but isn´t american, what are the chances that Bernie decides this time run as an independent anyway? It doesn´t seem like the democrats learn anything from 2016 and they will probably pick a SuperPAC/Fake progressive anyways, so is there any talk of a third candidate this time?
It´s tough to follow the day by day aspects, but what he represents in Latin America is a fresh take on economics. Our left here has been far too long held up in minorities (not that this is a bad thing) and ended up lsing the debate on economy. A lot of progressive leaders down here look at Sanders as the best thing that could happen in terms of ending once and for all with neoliberalism.
I wanted to ask because sometimes i think he´s more favorably viewed outside of the US.
Those are some unsubtle dogwhistles.Which would be a shame because Kamala looks more and more like Obama. Looks like the perfect candidate, says all the right things, is socially a progressive, but will bend over to Wall Street and nothing will change for people who work from paycheck to paycheck.
At this point Bernie has to run, i know the party won´t let him win, but at least it keeps the focus on the real issues.
