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.
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?
