When we step back and look at American politics from afar, the two party system has seemingly streamlined the political radicalization process, and is now producing extreme caricatures of the Democratic and Republican ideologies who are continuing to be elected to office.
On the right, we have folks like Marjorie Taylor Greene, who often says things that not only get her into trouble with her own party, but sound like they came from the writer’s room at Saturday Night Live.
On the left, however, there is Bernie Sanders, who is thought of fairly highly within the Democratic establishment, and who posed a real threat at the polls back in 2016 and 2020. This, despite being a self-avowed democratic socialist whose very ethos is entrenched in decades of brutal failure.
