Someone asked why Cruz is hated, here's a good place to start.

Exactly. It's frustrating to see this circulating on the internet about how you're supposed to be mad at the system when and only when it favors your cause.

Bernie is the "outsider" with a youthful support. And of course that means ignorance is about. It's great fodder and click bait to buy into the idea that he's trailing Clinton as far as he is, and that's why you need to be politically energized.

It's an interesting way to operate, anyhow.

Is your Sanderista label equivalent to a Bushbot, or a Clintonista?

Sounds like a drink with a little umbrella in it.

I'll have a Sanderista, please.

That's what the antisemitic Clintonistas call the sexist Sanderistas.

At some point, you're just going to have to get over it and accept the fact that, for the U.S., he's pretty far left. Noticeably so, versus the norm.

Yeah, honestly, I don't get the aggression(?) of your response at all. I thought we were having a decent enough start to a discussion and there's really no need to assume I'm intent on being condescending at all.

Plus you're not wrong. What those on the American right often label as far left is not so by any reasonable definition. This isn't exclusive to America either - we see it here in Australia too - but it seems particularly common and exaggerated in American politics.

The reverse happens far less often because of the global ascendancy of the right in recent decades. Rather than the left accusing centre-right politicians of being fringe extremists, the reality is that some positions today held by the moderate right were not viewed as moderate some twenty years ago.

You've made clear your political leanings in the past. You've made clear that you don't think Bernie Sanders is a socialist (he's not). But you've made a point about it, again and again. I don't think you're just oblivious. You're very well informed.
