Lauren I have been reading your stories for a few weeks now. I share your progressive leftist views. But unless Biden is elected president none of this analysis matters. The progressive agenda will be but a blip in history. I am a canadian but I seriously urge you to use your voice to focus on the long game. There are 2 sides and Obama is on your side regardless of what you think. The world is watching and holding it's breath. The prospect of a trump victory is devastating for everything we care about, especially basic human rights.
