And paid trolls are still on this sub 24/7 gaslighting about the real problem being republicans.
If we want to make a change we need to force the democrats to adopt progressive values, WE WILL NOT WIN REPUBLICANS OVER, it doesn't matter what we do, the only chance we have is a third party to get all the independent vote (which is bigger than democrat and republican vote) and most of the democrat vote. The only solution is a third party, and Bernie is the only one capable of making that possible.
Stop being a fool and following DNC plan of making you angry about what republicans do instead of getting angry about what the democrats did to us.
I think you can win republicans over by adopting progressive values. I’d just stop calling them progressive and start calling them common sense values, which they are for 99% of the country.
Dems betrayed Bernie. Period. He owes then no loyalty.
When you consider that "Bernie Bro" is a sexist disparaging term, it quickly becomes obvious. Talk about making women and PoC (whom poll after poll has shown as approving of Bernie) disappear by painting everyone as white males.
Medicare for all, raising the minimum wage, fighting to make sure women get "the whole damn dollar", defending Planned Parenthood, and fighting for paid parental leave as well as paid sick leave for families... ugh how far will these sexist policies go?
How dare you present statistics....
Creative Halloween costumes + spreading a positive, political message = WIN!
Poor attempts to shave his likeness into my chest hair is where I rate.
It's a shame that healthcare that works has to be a political position. :(
bringing a political message to a Halloween party.....
Definitely not pro Bush but i am a firm believer in supporting people when they do/say good things. That means if Bush is going to be anti Trump, I'm for it. I am also for Bush being tried for his alleged crimes.
This is literally how the Overton Window shifts.
Bush was Freddy Kruger to the economy. And over a week to Halloween too.
No! Anyone who is anti-Trump is automatically good! #logic
It's extremely unethical and it got her fired from CNN. Also, there was likely more. Only one person's emails were leaked who happened to be Cc'd here. She may have sent more directly to Clinton's campaign.
There should be an investigation and there would be if the DNC had any integrity.
I hope we are all smart enough to realize that the DNC has declared war on us, Bernie is guaranteed to lose the 2020 DNC Primary should he run as a Dem, and they intend to do everything in their power to suppress our voice in government.
Democrats have become equal to the GOP with their immorality and corruption. They are beyond redemption now and have become TRULY identical as parties.
One question that we know of, suggesting that there were easily more. Also, it demonstrates her absolute biased nature in a primary that the DNC was repeatedly saying was fair and unbiased. She directly represents the efforts of the DNC to continually push Clinton ahead of Sanders and appointing her is absolutely a provoking move that suggests they do not care about our concerns nor interests.
We received very few concessions from the DNC to cater toward our interests and now they seem hell-bent on slowly eroding or ignoring even those.
Turns out Russia is behind EVERYTHING!
Best scapegoat ever.
The right idolizes Reagan as if he was a god. Fact is, the current state of income inequality and the destruction of the middle class, can be laid squarely at his feet.
This is in response to Ted Cruz' inaccurate portrayal of the US economy under Reaganonics.
During the debate he implied that "everyone's income went up" when in truth, there was not much difference for the middle class between then and today.
Median =/= Average
In other news; water remains wet.
The reagan Presidency's sole contributions to America were the Zombie Lie and reenforcing the belief that fantasy creates reality.
America has been stuck in the '80s because we abandoned reality to follow a fantasy, in the '80s.
Beto O'Rourke is running against Ted Cruz.
O'Rourke supports universal health care, renewable energy, campaign finance reform, net neutrality, protecting Social Security, equal pay for equal work, LGBT equality, voting rights, and DACA.
I'm a bot and I'm learning. Let me know how I can do better. I'll add candidates who will represent working-class people instead of billionaire political donors.
Why in the world would they slap the entire Sanders campaign in the face like this? What a dumb move. Maybe they don't want to win?
They're fixin to rig it again
Maybe they want Sanders supporters to DemExit so the primaries will be safe for their neolib candidates?
I think you may be underestimating the ghoulishness of a certain faction within the Democratic Party. But if Sanders runs and they screw him again, he would certainly be justified in running as an independent.
It would be awful politics for the Dems to rig the primaries again because it would reveal them to be irredeemable. But as we know from the party that lost to Trump, for Dems, awful politics is often no bar to action.
at least 7% of those who responded are idiots. Zuckerberg? Seriously? After all the shit we know now?
If we, as a nation, ever elect Mark "they trust me, dumb fucks" Zuckerberg to the office of president, we can sign privacy's death warrant at his inaugural speech.
bernies got a good chance and thats awesome but we gotta take over the rest of D.C. as well or else they’ll be blocking him at every opportunity.
Idk... we did elect donald douche. Never underestimate the stupidity of the average uneducated 'murican.
The votes of registered Democrats alone are not enough to secure an election, and any successful appeal needs to target demographics beyond those who identify strongly with the party as an institution.
If Bernie Sanders, the most popular politician in America, is not a Democrat, it is the Democrats, not Bernie, who need to consider redefining themselves.
Encapsulating why so many people feel disaffected by the Democratic Party is the fabricated controversy surrounding Bernie's accepting an invitation to speak at the Women's Convention.
And lost in this controversy is the incredible fact that Hillary Clinton declined the same invitation because it conflicted with her schedule of book signings. However, she was able to make time in her busy schedule to speak at a private healthcare exec symposium - Howard Dean will also be there, and his talk is titled “Positive Impact of the Private Sector in Healthcare.”
But the media establishment is attacking Bernie for speaking at the Women's Convention, where he'll be talking about real issues.
Welcome to /sub/sandersforpresident! We're supporting Bernie's bid for President in 2020, but in the meantime following his lead to take over and replace the Democratic Party.
If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, please SUBSCRIBE.
God this sums up so much about why I can’t stand what the Democratic Party has become.
The Democrats have an integrity problem. 2016 put on full display the leadership had become as corrupt as the worst displays from the Republicans they spend so much time vilifying.
But this one time she argued forgainst universal healthcare! Ugh, I hate that Hillary worshipers can argue literally everything because Hillary has sided with everything and nothing.
Bernie on slapdown mode with the constitution as his chosen weapon
he only knows of the 2nd amendment
We have a President of the United states who lies all the time.. It cheapens and lowers respect for truth... It makes it easier for us to not have a discourse based on facts, but a discourse which is based on "alternative truth". And I worry about that very much in terms of the future on American democracy...
Trump claims that all of mainstream media is "fake news" not to be believed.. Where does that take us as a nation? What is the average American to believe?... Our founders enshrined the press as the one profession specifically protected in the Bill of Rights. A well informed citizenry is necessary for Democracy to function correctly. The power of knowledge, access to information, belong in the hands of the people not just the government...
A President who lies all of the time, that is something new... the kind of attacks against the media that we have seen, that is unprecedented... this affection for authoritarian leaders, that is different... an affection for a strongman type of government. And that should be of concern to all of us... Democracy is an end in itself...
Except the 'well regulated militia' part.
