I keep hoping that the presidential candidates will be addressing the deeply serious political-economic and environmental crises that our country (and the world) are facing. So far, global warming is never even mentioned by the Republican candidates. And the only candidate of either party to mention the urgent need for deep economic reform is Bernie Sanders. Why are we, the electorate, not demanding of our candidates that they address these life-threatening crises? Why do so many ordinary people in our good old USA feel so detached from facing these issues head-on? In many ways, I think the European countries are ahead of us in moving to address these issues.
What are your thoughts about this?
