This statement is correct but it’s hard to get elected to public office, let alone instigate revolutionary change, by speaking only within the technical confines of the office. We need clearly stated goals and are, I think, very tired of consultant approved safe-speak that never uses a simple statement when a twenty word obfuscation has been crafted. I’m even willing to hazard the guess that the majority of Bernie supporters are aware of the constraints of the office. Unfortunately the system is broken and needs a major overhaul and failing to say that gets us nowhere. It is also dishonest and honesty is now the only thing that matters because our whole society is based on lies. . .
