  1. Isn’t it a shame we didn’t elect Bernie Sanders? Then we would have what the majority of people want in all Parties: healthcare, education, higher wages, maybe even a UBI. Tulsi Gabbard as Sec. of State, end of wars. Andrew Yang and Elizabeth Warren somewhere in finance. Three most on the SCOTUS. In other words, a good administration. But wait! The DNC screwed the Democrats over, thoroughly, just like last time. Now we have someone in the pocket of Wall Street, big Pharma, and the MIC. Oh, yes, Israel, too.

    1. On one hand, Bernie has proven to me he’s now more in the tank with establishment Dems to be any good. After all, he scolded his supporters a few months ago for not supporting his “friend” Biden. He crossed the line with that shit.

      That said, had he been elected four years ago, there at least would have been some kind of meaningful hope among the mass of people instead of what we see today among liberals, which is pure delusion. While I have my issues with Bernie, his message back then was strong and it resonated across the country, giving a political awakening to many people, myself included. He de-stigmatized that awful profanity, “socialism”, and that alone was big. But his message was larger than that, and it stuck with a lot of people.

      But when you run on that kind of thing, with all that energy and support, then bend your knee to Hillary after she just cheated you, then four years later bend to the will of who might be an even shittier candidate like Biden after the latter’s boss put his thumb on the scale, then you lose me. To this day, Ralph Nader gets skewered for the 2000 election, the allegation that he cost Al Gore the presidency was thorough crap, but at least he didn’t cave to the Democratic Party. And for that he’s paid a price, and continues to pay it.

      Bernie once said he doesn’t want to end up like Nader. Well Bernie, you’re not going to. Congrats on that.

      1. Marble Rye,
        I agree with you. Bernie should have stuck to his ideals and told the DNC, Hillary, Barack and the rest to stuff it. Then he should have revealed what they did.

  2. The Democratic Party corporation will just have to dig our disdain of their back stabbing of the youth and future of their country…

  3. to claim that sanders isn’t a typical fascist ignores that he supports Clinton/biden, votes for all military appropriations and described Hugo Chavez as a dead dictator—amerikans despise morality
