But did they? Or did the people of America do that with their voice and their vote, every step of the way? I am not American, but what I see is that the people of American keep showing the world, time after time, that rich old white men are the preferred candidate, as long as they don’t use words like socialism or healthcare for all.

More than half the population are women. Where were the votes and the support for Elizabeth Warren? I don’t know what needs to happen in the world to collapse the popularity of the status quo.

Maybe the pandemic needed to hit before Liz bowed out. Maybe as mass numbers of people faced loss of jobs and no healthcare, they might have voted different. But even still, I doubt it. Change is scary.
