Candidate update: Clinton and Sanders

Here are some short ones from Common Dreams.

"Clinton Sheds Progressive Façade with Bold Rightward Lurch"

From her call for a major air and ground war against ISIS to her attack on single-payer, Clinton appears to be sprinting full-speed to the right.

"Amid Terror Fever, Sanders Refuses to Back Down on Climate Threat Stance"

"If we do not get our act together and listen to what the scientists say, you're going to see all sorts of international conflict," said candidate, repeating previous assertion that climate change is our greatest national security threat.

"Democratic Socialism: Let Us Finish What FDR and MLK Started"

... this is what Roosevelt stated, and I quote: "We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. Necessitous men are not free men." End of quote. In other words, real freedom must include economic security. That was Roosevelt’s vision 70 years ago. It is my vision today. It is a vision that we have not yet achieved. It is time that we did.
