    Bernie's an old timer that's younger at heart than most US citizens. It's refreshing to see that you can be that sharp and active at his age.

    He should adopt Tulsi and make the US into a socialist globalist empire that is not doing any dirty empire-y things And after he meets his final death, Tulsi would take over as Queen.

    What's with this topic? Where's the enthusiasm? Here's something to show that Bernie is still the great guy he was in 2016.

    As a die hard supporter of Bernie in 16... I'm not feeling him right now. I don't have anyone I'm actively supporting right now actually.

    I'm still feeling confident the most likely nominee is going to be Kamala Harris.

    That's the problem. People say what? 12% of his supporters didn't make the transition to Clinton. 12% isn't anything to scoff about. People spend a lot money trying to win over or suppress 12% of the population.

    Its a distraction that wasn't needed.

    Bernie Sanders was distinctive in the field compared to Clinton's "1990s 2.0" New Democrat model in 2016. He was the progressive alternative. Folks kind of forget (or maybe weren't old enough or politically in the know enough to remember) that in 2008, Obama beat Hillary as a quasi-progressive alternative to New Democrat model that still dominated the party. In the General election, Obama hard pivoted to the center and ran, basically, as a New Democrat, which lead to the all those stories of Obama true believers feeling betrayed in 2009/2010.

    Hillary Clinton fell to Obama in 2008 because Obama's 2008 campaign is of historic importance for those who haven't read about it. It was revolutionary. It was the model of most major campaigns in the Western world since, and pioneered extremely modern methods of fund raises, messaging, voter turn out, and voter-candidate contact. There was nothing else like it. Hillary Clinton's 1990s model campaign barely stood a chance against it, even with her star power. And McCain's 1990s model campaign never had a chance in the world. Obama's 2012 campaign built on that.

    Fast forward to 2016, and Hillary Clinton did the smart and obvious thing and hired away most of the Obama 2012 people, and she ran a campaign that was much more in line with the post-Obama architecture of one. And she was able to beat the progressive alternative in Sanders. Sanders, let's be clear, never had a chance to beat her, and it wasn't because of superdelegates. His supporters greatly overplayed the significance of caucuses in and minor primary victories, when in fact, after Super Tuesday, it was over. They did it because they wanted to believe. As I said in 2016, the math doesn't care what they wanted to believe. The Math judgement's said Sanders lost states he couldn't afford to lose, and he lost them badly.

    And that was against a New Democrat.

    Now the New Democrats are effectively no more, and 2019 Democrats are a mixture of center-left, progressivism, and oddly, historically center-right institutionalism brought on by Donald Trump.

    Bernie Sanders is yesterday's model compared to the superior alternatives in this time. The only question is if he goes quietly, or if, when he loses again, he'll half heartedly support the Democrtic Nominee again.

    I have a generally extremely low opinion of Bernie Sanders. I think he's a charlatan who talks a good game, but that's it. I think the fact that his ex-campaign staff quit on him week one of the founding of his PAC because he put a crony in charge says everything you need to know about Sanders. I think he'll lose the primary and AFK the General election, because like kindred spirit Jeremy Corbyn in the UK, he hopes the blight upon the country (Brexit there, Trump here) metastizies to the point their left-wing ideas gain enough currency among the general populace to move the country to the left of the center-left, rather than the center left, as most other Democrats envision.

    Unlike in 2016 though, I'm not going to spend a lot of time this cycle shooting down Bernie Sanders. I don't think he has enough importance this time, and the alternatives, especially Kamala Harris, are more likely to win the primary and beat Trump.

    And you expect us to just embrace this opinion of yours, because reasons? What you said makes me want to see Bernie nominated even more.

    The rest of the things I want to say would result in me being banned, so eff that.

    kamala lmao.

    I'm happy I wasn't reading this section in 2016. I'm pretty sure you managed to enrage a lot of people and fully commit them to Bernie, so I guess that's a good thing.

    Technically, from the looks of things, he lost the election through illegal outside influence. But we'll wait for the final report to come out.

    Usually you post with some kind of knowledge, but this seems to be an exception. Keep in mind the democratic nominee has won the popular vote in every presidential general election since 1988, save one. So I wouldn't try dying on that particular hill.

    No one was reading this section in 2016. You really need to think about starting to post after you learn things, not before.

    As for Bernie - he's a terrible choice, for a number of reasons. Those same reasons make him a fantastic supporter of whomever does get the nomination.

    What? You think I'm a forum historian or what? What are you trying to imply, say it openly, cause your first sentence doesn't make any sense.

    As for the 2nd one, if you sabotage Bernie AGAIN, a lot of his supporters will vote out of fucking spite. I suggest you don't try the same crap as in 2016, cause this time, people are ready, and it won't end up pretty.

    I hope you realize that your two sentences above contradict themselves. Give us a shout when you're caught up with your own statements, we'll still be here. If case you're confused, this section was started in 2017. Took me 5 seconds to find that out. Like I said, if you started posting after you learn things, instead of before, you won't appear to be so confused.

    Blah blah blah Bernie got screwed over blah blah. That tired old song is done. We're in 2019 and fighting for the moral soul of this country. Your line of deflecting bullshit isn't needed here.

    So, Skroe must've posted his anti-Bernie rants in another part of the forums. Good? What do you want me to do, fall on my knees and ask forgiveness because i didn't know when this subforum was created? You can wait for that.

    Anyway, there's really nothing to discuss. Corporate dems are among the most disgusting, vile, traitorous beings in the world. They DECEIVE the people on the left with SOCIAL and CULTURAL mostly irrelevant trash, like expecting praise and votes because they don't hate gays and blacks, and they NEVER fight the class war.

    The class war is the only war left to fight. It's as easy as that. If you're not fighting it, you're not on the left. You protect the rich and corporations, you're NOT LEFT. You come with big piles of nothingness and "we can have a discussion", you're not left.

    As things are now, there are 3 choices:

    - Bernie
    - Tulsi
    - Warren

    Rest of the dems are pure trash.

    I made most of my Bernie posts before your account was created. And this subforum wasn't made until after politics thread took over the OT section, well after the Primary. Apparently reading about people's deep seated insecurities is worthwhile or something.

    Which just confirms something I've thought for some time:

    Who is your original account? You're not a new face. You're an old face with a new-ish account who is hiding because if we knew the name, it would change the conversation.

    No, just that you made a mistake and that you can admit it. Frankly, that was a lot more than we expected.


    The class war is the only war left to fight. It's as easy as that. If you're not fighting it, you're not on the left. You protect the rich and corporations, you're NOT LEFT. You come with big piles of nothingness and "we can have a discussion", you're not left.
    That's an interesting position to take. And imo worthy of a separate thread (seriously). However, the short answer is that you can't fight a cultural war of any kind without being or getting into a position of power. And the really big ones require large quantities of money. That includes corporate donations, unfortunately. So your position, at least on it's face, is heroic but short sighted. Practical solutions are needed in the coming class war, and delegating people to "left" and "right" based solely on campaign contributions from corporations is helping at all.


    As things are now, there are 3 choices:

    - Bernie
    - Tulsi
    - Warren

    Rest of the dems are pure trash.
    I see you're back to taking the learning about things after you post. Those are perhaps the three worst choices for the Dems in 2020. I guess Trump told you to post those?

    You getting the same vibe I am, that this a Trump supporter engaging in some performance art here?

    I've been getting that vibe since this CryotriX guy showed up. I've been saying it stinks for a month and change.
