The time is approaching when many Progressives are going to have to make a choice and unite to ensure an undeniable win at the Democratic Convention. Will it be Warren or Sanders?

The choice of Warren or Sanders must be done strategically
As Progressives get happy as Joe Biden begins his descent to a necessary irrelevance if we are to move forward, there is still a dilemma that we will have to come to terms with preferably sooner than later.
Progressives have two solid candidates in Warren and Sanders with overlapping bases. Both support policies that will help all Americans. But only one can be President. How do we go about choosing which one? We discuss that today. This is a great problem to have. Suffice it to say in my humble opinion we do not need them both on the ticket. One navigating in the Senate is invaluable.
I also discuss the subject about factionalization of Americans — Facebook, Twitter, racial silos — by creating false differences. If we let it continue the Plutocracy wins. The unsustainability of the form of Capitalism we practice depends on dissension, war, and then a corrupted rebirth. Tomorrow’s program will feature Ted Howard, President, and Co-Founder of The Democracy Collaborative who will discuss some of this.
We also discuss the advantage of terrestrial broadcast radio over the Internet. It allows for more free access to you.
