Where Have All the Leftists Gone?

Paul Craig Roberts, the "Father of Reaganomics," wonders, waxing nostalgic for a time "when there was far less war, far less monopoly capitalist theft, a less rich and powerful elite, less police violence against civilians, less militarization, less privatization and deregulation, fewer attacks on the social safety net, less propaganda from the media, and yet, despite the milder state of affairs, the leftwing was present raising hell about it all" — What Became of the Left?

To answer the question posed in this post's title, let's hope they've gone to Donald, everyone, and follow this right-thinking leftist's lead — Why Sanders Supporters Should Vote for Trump.

I've always found US politics difficulty to understand, especially the way Americans use terms like "left", "right", "liberal" and "conservative". Perhaps this article adds some spice to the mix, and brings out the flavours for those who understand them. Anyway, I've shared it on Facebook as a stone in the bush.

PCR, as they call him, is one of the more interesting pundits out there.

I remember the days back in the '80s when the Left was rightly all over the Reagan regime's running guns to this or that Central American autocrat or rebel group.

Now, you cannot here a peep from the Left about Obama's tacit support for the Saudi War on Yemen, much less Killery's bloody destabilizing of Libya, Egypt, and Syria. The big issue of the day is what bathroom cross-dressers can use.

And forget economics. Mrs. Clinton laid out her priorities with these words spoken against Bernie Sanders:

“If we broke up the big banks tomorrow, would that end racism? Would that end sexism? Would that end discrimination against the L.G.B.T. community? Would that make people feel more welcoming to immigrants overnight?”
