I am a strong believer in third-party and encourage it whenever I see it.
I’ve been watching the strong influence of Bernie Sanders since 2015 as there are aspects that I liked even if not the whole thing.
I didn’t join in that but I did support Andrew Gillum in 2018 FL Who had a mixture of progressive policy with standard FDR democrat ideas.
I’ve looked at the subtle changes in democratic party platform as they hesitantly tried to absorb bits and pieces of progressive ideas.
One of the things that sold me on Biden’s campaign, which I was paying attention to while everybody else was focused on Trump train wreck or Nancy Pelosi, was not only a change in language and focus but accurate changes in language and focus.
But not in all things.
That’s one of the things I respect about this process.
