In regards to the June 30 column “Wake up, Democrats” by Bernie Sanders: I am a Democrat, and I am growing very tired of being lectured by Sanders and his followers, who seem to believe that only they understand the problems we face.
I am especially tired of being told to “wake up” by individuals who seem to believe that income inequality is the only issue that needs to be addressed.
If I could snap my fingers and create his utopian America, I would, but reality really is a thing. He needs to convince many more people than just Democrats that he is right. He needs to also convince more than half the rest of the country as well.
He also needs to present a workable plan to make his vision possible given today’s political realities, and so far he has failed to do either of those things.
If by some anomaly he had been elected president, he would have been reduced to a ceremonial role as lecturer in chief, and I’m sure everyone would have tired of that very quickly. He should stop already with the lectures. He lost!
