I love Bernie, what he stands for and most of all, how he has singlehandedly changed the conversation. He has forced most of my party to adopt his vision. He has succeeded despite failing at legislation. Bernie Sanders’s vision is now our vision and it requires new messengers to succeed
His vision for America is now mainstream and I hope one day my grandkids can visit the Bernie Sanders memorial on the National Mall. But. You knew the but was coming.
But he is a messenger, not a doer. He is a superb rabble rouser, not an administrator. His message is clear but repeated for so long that our minds are numb to it. It’s time to allow new voices to carry the vision forward.
Put another way. Attaining an equitable society on a sustainable planet is so very much more important than one individual’s role in the process of getting there.
Bernie Sanders’s vision is now our vision and it requires new messengers to succeed. Bernie can help the Democratic Party achieve his visions or narcissistically stomp on any chance we have for success.
