Bernie Still Collecting Delegates all the way to the convention.

Recommended Posts

https://www.businessinsider.com/sanders-will-continue-gathering-delegates-to-influence-dnc-platform-2020-4

 

 

IMHO I think that this is a very good thing for the Democratic Party as a whole. 

 

Why should the Bernie camp just turn over to the establishment wing of the Democratic Party?

 

They have a decent chunk of the current delegate load at the moment, So i think they should have a little say in the platform as a whole, because if not people in the DNC don't realize this but it will be a repeat of 2016 if you cannot get the progressive wing of the party on the side of Joe Biden. 

 

The Establishment better not bungle this like 2016 or there will be 4 more years of Trump. Plain and Simple

It sends a clear message that a large contingent of voters want certain promises of support for important issues.

Yes it does, he has about 35% of the current delegate load I think he should have some say of what the Democratic Platform is going to be.

And if that were the case Bernie has already changed the dynamic. The country will only move left even faster after a second Trump term. 
 

And also don’t forget, a second term President becomes a lame duck his last two years. In all likelihood the Dems are going to keep the House, and have good shots at the Senate both this year, and in 2022. 
 

After next year, in lieu of a second term, Trump won’t see another budget bill come across his desk, and even Republicans will be looking to position themselves for a post Trump administration, when they will be running away from him as fast as they did George Bush. 
 

The worst thing that could happen to the conservative cause is a second Trump term. If the Dems do win the Senate, and then retake the WhiteHouse, they won’t make the same mistake they did in 2008.

 

Expect everything McConnell has blocked since the Obama administration to be passed with 51 vote majorities and signed into law. Including the repeal of the tax cut scam, and the new budget from Pelosi or who ever the Dem Speaker is the Republicans are really going to like.

 

Lets just say there won’t be any tax cut, corporate bail out, or increased a Pentagon money in it. It will be very heavily loaded with new healthcare spending though. With all of that new tax revenue to pay for it.

 

Things dont always go as planned. It won’t for Trump and Republicans either. Take it from someone who has kept up with politics since the 60’s.

    Hola

    I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems

    So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • By teacher

    How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now.
