The DNC clearly doesn't want voters to nominate Bernie Sanders. Maybe the problem isn't Sanders. Maybe the problem is the DNC. Maybe they need a reboot. The whole US federal government and partisan organisations need to remember that they exist for the voters, not the other way around.
This seems to be no different from last time, except it was Clinton not Biden.
@fitheach I'd never vote for Trump personally, because I demand a leader with integrity, honour, grace, and intelligence. And I also couldn't bring myself to vote for Clinton.
@resist1984 @fitheach I voted, but not for either of the oligarchy candidates. Strategic voting signifies a badly broken democracy. I intensely dislike the US duopoly and will work hard to break it. I think a Clinton presidency would've been almost as bad as Trump for the world. And that's saying something, given the unmitigated disaster of the #Drumpfsterfire. But the world needs the US to completely wash out its federal gov't. I think only Bernie has a chance of doing that.
@resist1984 @fitheach your entire narrative is messed up. The Dems don't stand for the sort of fundamental structural change that the US absolutely requires to become a modern, just, equitable society. They are beholden to the same corrupt influences as the GOP. Any candidate who doesn't overturn Citizens United on day one, is unworthy of consideration.
@resist1984 @fitheach I support him *despite* his running as a democrat, because I know he's only chosen that side because there wasn't really another option. Of course the Democratic establishment is *desperate* to ensure he doesn't win the nomination... but I think he just might do it. If he does, I'm confident he'll win the election.
@resist1984 @fitheach I have a desperately low impression of US voter intelligence, but I think even a lot of those driven entirely by self-interest & pointless defiance now realise Trump's bad news. What they require is someone who's not just more of the same shit that's been slung by *both* parties for my entire lifetime. That leaves Bernie Sanders.
