Joe Biden is giving Progressives a bad taste in their mouth. The reason people are saying that it is death for our generation is becuse there is no middle ground on climate change. You have to go big and even then it is still going to fall short. What do we know about Republicans? That even when you are willing to compromise, they won't. They will make you back down and compromise more. If you start from the middle and they start from the far right, when you compromise, you end up on the right. If you start far left and then have to make compromises, you have more room to budge without going over to their side. For the first time I had to turn them off. Their inability to even understand the view that there is no middle ground on climate change just speaks worlds to how the Obama administration, or how the Biden one, will fall so short from ever achieving a valuable goal. Sanders, Gabbard, Warren, these are people with bold policy. Biden doesn't have time to talk about his plans but has plenty of time to hate on Trump while trying to be the guy against hate? He has zero values, he does not want to end money in politics, he does not want universal healthcare, he does not want bold climate change policy, he does not want anything bold. He wants the status quo, and as much as I loved Obama, we have to remember that eight years of Obama's Neo-Liberal, Centrist Establishment politics left 30 million Americans still without insurance. It still left tens upon tens of millions of Americans under-insured. He made the economy look good on paper and he did get some 20 million Americans health coverage that otherwise would not have happened, but average Americans are still struggling. That is how Trump was able to appeal to them. Saying Biden will make things like they were before Trump does not speak to how he is going to fix things, because he is not trying to fix things. Sanders, Warren, Gabard, they have legitimate plans that they are passionate about that will make everyday Americans so much better off. Biden did not even get into the race because he had any policy that he was passionate about, that he thought would make things better. His campaign launch video wasn't about anything. Oh wow Joe, you are against Nazis? That is such a low bar to set in a Democratic race with actual goals and values. Empty talking points. Hillary 2.0 will see the same results as Hillary 1.0. You need to bring in young voters if you want to win. Sanders polls well with young voters because he has policies that matter to them, that will setup a future that they want to live in. As Biden talks more, more young people will feel less interested in voting for him. Their inability to see it is infuriating - "wait for the white paper to come out".... they already said that it is the middle ground. Scientists are in favour of BOLD policy and even then we are still in for a ride.
