Would you rather vote for Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren for President?

Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are the leading progressives in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Sanders is presenting the case for Democratic Socialism—he believes in major reforms on behalf of the working class and reining in the wealthy. Warren, on the other hand, sees herself as a capitalist—her reforms go further than most candidates but stops short of Sanders's policies. The two have made their claim to the left-wing of the Democratic party, but only one can win.

Sanders provides a different path forward. He is not a Democrat. He is a Democratic Socialist. That basically boils down to economic rights are human rights. Economic stability and independence should not be a privilege for just a lucky few. Sanders is proposing a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights which would guarantee:

  • The right to a decent job that pays a living wage
  • The right to quality health care
  • The right to a complete education
  • The right to affordable housing
  • The right to a clean environment
  • The right to a secure retirement

Warren believes capitalism can be fixed. Instead of funneling wealth to the hands of just a few, markets can work for the average person. The problem with capitalism is that the rules aren't being enforced. Her policies would introduce a series of necessary reforms that would reorient the market to share the profits with workers, not just the super-rich.

Okay. You’re taking it to a hundred thousand feet, which is great, but my argument is far more personal. We need to make capitalism work for your family and we need to make democracy work for your family ... It’s not that you’re wrong, I’m just saying this is where I land it, right with how families experience this economy. A rising stock market is not helpful to the half of all America who own not one single share of stock. Rising productivity that doesn’t translate into rising wages for the people who actually do the work is not building a better future for them. Costs that are skyrocketing for education and health care and housing put a squeeze on families that are struggling with flat wages, so every one of those is about the lived experience, and that’s what colors our view of both capitalism and democracy in 2018.
