Re: “The choice for Democrats: Evolution or revolution” (Eugene Robinson column, 1-20).
I usually agree with Robinson, but he missed the real issue between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
It is not “evolution or revolution”; the real issue is whether the Democratic Party will continue its self-destructive neo-liberal path allied with Wall Street or return to the people policies of Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman and John Kennedy.
Clinton represents a continuation of identity politics neo-liberals have used to split the working class against itself. Sanders’ philosophy is a belief in solidarity promoting the progress of all working-class people regardless of race, sex, creed or religion.
Never miss a local story.
Americans need to work together and not be forced to fight over the scraps tossed to them by the Wall Street bankers and global corporations. The Sanders-Clinton battle is basic: Will the Democratic Party become a working-class party again or remain the submissive partner of Wall Street?
