I am a progressive Warren supporter. I decry racial, financial, gender, and social inequality.
I believe that free markets result in a consolidation of power and wealth that benefits the already-rich and powerful…which harms of the rest of us.
I believe that a person’s intelligence should be extolled and not feared, and that the people running our government should be smarter than me.
Progressivism has its roots in pragmatism; I also consider myself to be a pragmatic person.
We are all flawed people, after all.
But the key part of progressivism is right there in the root of the word: progress. Change…for the good. I try hard to learn from my mistakes. To grow. To adapt.
I will vote for Elizabeth Warren. If she drops out, I will vote for Joe Biden.
And I will vote for the Democratic candidate—*no matter who it is*—in November.
And I won’t insult anyone else for supporting a different Dem.
Critical thinking is an important skill to have, and I can’t possibly teach it in 280-character chunks.
But I’ll probably keep trying. 🤣
Anyway, #VoteBlueNoMatterWho, and be good to you. 💙
