Made a political contribution to Bernie Sanders this morning after realizing that my support of Elizabeth Warren was thinking about who I "thought could win".

Warren is still great, but I want to support the candidat who most fits my views and values.

Bernie 2020

Would love if Mastodon supported editing posts, rather than just "delete and re-draft" so spelling errors wouldn't be there forever.

Does Pleroma support the Modify activity?

@emacsen do you think anyone should become a president when they are 70+ and had a heart attack? (irrespective of their ideas)

@szbalint

> irrespective of their ideas

Ideas and ideals are the key here.

It's also why I worked (albeit very briefly) on the Nader 2000 campaign.

If we just have an incremnetal "back to the status quo" (ala Biden), the US isn't going to be where it needs to be. It certainly won't fix the damage Trump and the others have caused.

Sanders is the politican we need to move us to being the society I know we can be.

@szbalint @emacsen

The vatican think yes! ;-)

(even if the pope is actually king, he is elected from a minority of all the citizen :-) )

@cwebber If I could update the post, I would change modify to update.

@emacsen not yet, but we will soon-ish, because delete-and-redraft is a really bad idea

@emacsen
How it looks from outside thé US: Warren is a good person, Sanders has good politics.
Or, Saïd otherwise: Warren wants to do thé right thing, Sanders wants to do it the right way.

@emacsen
Not to forger that Warren will most probably have to keep the military tradition of killing innocent non-american people while maybe Sanders will be able to prevent it (yes, I may ne extremely naïve). And for non-américains it's suite an important issue...

@LienRag Just remember that the president is not able to do a lot of things without congress, and also the supreme court.

The president is not a king (no matter what some of them might say)

@emacsen
You are absolutely right but I dont get your point?

@LienRag My point is a new president won't fix the US. We need a new congress, and we need to get rid of the corruption in the system via money and jerrymandering.
