There's no understanding of how goals are achieved, historically, because these folks are being misled by red-brown alliance media figures, sapping them of energy & cash. Progress isn't linear. A long-term goal without short-term strategies is just moral posturing. Read a book.
If we could just demonize & maniacally harass 1 member of Congress who happens to be our ally like the right wing would, maybe we can reverse centuries of capitalist incentives & exploitation in the US & secure Medicare for All. We just haven't been vicious enough. Duh! ๐Ÿ™„

The large swathe of former "progressives" who are now caught in the Dore-Greenwald or Qanon web is frightening.

Bernie Sanders is doing what he can to improve #Medicare now. Hopefully, Medicare will cover dental, eyeglasses, and hearing aids soon.

When I need someone to do something for me, I just scream at them at the top of my lungs while complimenting myself for being a brave fighter for the less than fortunate. It works every time!!

And short-term strategies to raise $$ from people without ever being accountable to deliver something in the long-term in exchange for the $$ is just capitalism at its fucking worst, and name me an "independent" media company that isn't doing just that.

While true, doing absolutely nothing while they are in power isn't an answer either.

An immediate small improvement would be to direct the anger at centrist Democrats and Republicans who are against M4A instead.
