President Warren Sanders can then start clearing the wreckage left by Trump

There aren't 20 Senate Republicans with enough integrity to remove the most corrupt president in American history, so we're going to have to get rid of Trump the old-fashioned way -- by electing a Democrat next November 3.

That Democrat will be Warren Sanders.

Although there are differences between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, I'm putting them together for the purpose of making a simple point.

These two have most of the grassroots energy in the 2020 campaign, most of the enthusiasm, and most of the ideas critical for America's future.

Together, they lead Biden and every other so-called moderate Democrat by a wide margin in all polls.

That's because the real political divide in America today is establishment versus anti-establishment -- the comparatively few at the top who have siphoned off much of the wealth of the nation versus everyone else whose wages and prospects have gone nowhere.

 

Warren and Sanders know the system is rigged and that economic and political power must be reallocated from a corporate-Wall Street elite to the vast majority.

This is why both Warren and Sanders are hated by the Democratic Party establishment.

It's also why much of the corporate press is ignoring the enthusiasm they're generating. And why it's picking apart their proposals, like a wealth tax and Medicare for all, as if they were specific pieces of legislation.

And why corporate and Wall Street Democrats are mounting a campaign to make Americans believe Warren and Sanders are "too far to the left" to beat Trump, and therefore "unelectable."
