David Korten on Clinton and Sanders
Here he said: "I'm sticking with Sanders and voting for Clinton." He's right that Clinton is far better than Trump, given her political experience. But he's mistaken that Sanders has actually moved her to the left, or that the progressive movement can hold her to implementing her progressive spin. I agree that we must support progressive candidates that are not beholden to any Party but instead are committed to progressive policies. But this election has proven that the Dem Party is not in the least committed to those ideals and is just as corrupt and undemocratic as its nemesis, the GOP.
