Look! This is the most critical time in this country’s history. I know you have heard this before. But NEVER has their been a “Trump” and/or a “Sanders” in the equation. Two very skilled CON MEN! Trump on the right and Sanders on the left.
The question I pose here is “CAN A NON-DEMOCRAT LEAD DEMOCRATS?”
I SAY “NO“! WHAT SAY YOU?
Secretary Hillary Clinton said “we are stronger together”! I believed and continue to believe that. But from the Primary to TODAY Bernie Sanders has done everything to HIGH JACK the Democratic Party. He almost had even me fooled. Almost!
BUT then it occurred to me, wait a minute “Captain Obvious”. (He is GREAT at listing problems we already are aware of so the only response is “YES” you are right). You’ve been wondering in the wilderness of Congress for a quarter-century and passed ONE bill. “ONE”! And now You emerge from the wilderness to become the “Messiah” of the Democrat Party…OF WHICH YOU ARE NOT A MEMBER? Not “NO” but “HELL NO”! On it’s face it sounds like a CON.
But I digress! About what he and “he alone” is doing to make the Democrat Party (of which he is NOT a member) a “Grass Roots ” Party. Lets see. He LOSES the Democratic Primary and is then rewarded for losing with a “LEADERSHIP” position in the Senate by Chuck Schumer. You must admit that was, pretty slick. So Bernie! What are you, Leader of the Party going to do to make US, THE DEMOCRAT PARTY, A GRASS ROOTS PARTY? Well!
SO! Let’s re-cap! You, Bernie Sanders, Senate Democrat Leader, who says the Democrat Party has to open it’s doors and let young people in, at least 3 Billion times, REFUSE TO GIVE YOUR EMAIL LIST TO THE DNC SO THAT IT CAN REACH OUT THOSE GRASS ROOTS PEOPLE TO LET THEM KNOW THE DOORS ARE OPEN?
AND WHO THE HELL IS THIS “WE” HE KEEPS TALKING ABOUT YOU MIGHT ASK? Well let me tell you who it ain’t; It ain’t DEMOCRATS!
But “WE” IS Bernie Sanders’ organization of which he is the Leader. He can’t claim that because his position in the Senate prohibits it. But have no doubt EVERYTHING he does is in support of that organization. When he says “WE” he is referring to the “Our Revolution” organization. He said “WE ARE PREPARING TO DO”? He is CLEARLY saying “My list is for Our Revolution, my peeps, and NOT the DNC. So they ain’t getting it. Furthermore WE will NOT support down ticket Democrat candidates, UNLESS “WE” determine they are “PROGRESSIVE ENOUGH, AS DEFINED BY “WE”! Got that?
He has his MSNBC series “Bernie Sanders goes to Trump Country“. Even that is a CON. It just so happens the states this traveling farce goes to, are Not really Trump states . They are in the sense Trump won them in the General. BUT more importantly , they are states Bernie won in the primary. It’s BS people! Now listen to this. It’s “fake news” on the right and “Progressives” on the left. Two terms redefined by the 2016 election. It does get a bit garbled when so-called “Progressives” attack the Democrat Party on FOX of all places! But then it is the TRUMP era!
Listening to her I’m reminded of a line from the movie the “Formula”. This guy tells Brando his big plan. “We could raise the price of gas at the pump by 10 cent a gallon and blame it on the Arabs”! Brando replies “WE ARE THE ARABS”!
Guess what? When you take over , you are the establishment! It’s scary that I have to explain this. But even during the election, the lack of how the government works, such as the importance of the Supreme Court nomination was astounding. I was told I was using “scare” tactics. No, I was showing what was on the line. Look at where we are.
Look! There are “Progressive” elements in the Democrat Party. There always has been. BUT lets get this straight! ALL Democrats are “PROGRESSIVES” by definition. The Democrat Party is truly a “big tent”. We have Conservatives, Moderates, Liberals and yes Progressives. And each has an “EQUAL” seat at the table. But The 2016 Presidential race gave Bernie Sanders an opportunity to “HIGH JACK” the term “Progressive” and use it to further his agenda. Bernie Sanders is NOT now and NEVER has been a Democrat. He didn’t have the Guts to run as an Independent or a “Progressive” so like a snake in the grass slithered into the Primary under the guise of being a Democrat. Taking our money, our data, and everything else that came with the PRIVILEGE of running as a Democrat. While in his own words “running AGAINST the Democratic Party”!
By the way, under the agreement attached to running as a Democrat, each candidate agreed to donate to “down Ticket” DEMOCRAT candidates. Secretary Clinton DID. BIG TIME! She raised a lot of money. NOT for herself , but for down ticket Democrat candidates. Bernie didn’t give a DAMN PENNY while “bragging” about his millions raised thru $27 donations. And keeping it for himself. I suppose they weren’t “Progressive” enough. Even one of the largest donors to Sec. Clinton, George Clooney, came out and explained his event was for “down ticket candidates” and defended her fund raising. Yet this snake used that against her. Claiming it showed she couldn’t fight Wall Street, because she was some how beholding to her Donors. He pushed it so hard ,to the point where one of his surrogates, namely Paul Song, Husband of CNN’s Lisa Ling felt comfortable enough to call Sec. Clinton a “Money Whore” before a crowd est. at 27, 000 before Sanders took the stage. And rather than denounce it right then and there, Sanders waited until the Clinton campaign demanded an apology, and then and ONLY then did he “tweet” his denouncement! And saying they hadn’t heard about the comment! And we are suppose to believe that? It happened at the same event on the same stage. And you hadn’t heard? Again, sound like someone else we all know with initials DJT? A lot of similarities.
The Democrat Party NEEDS Independents! I know this. But it’s like being sick and need blood. You NEED blood! BUT if you are “O” positive you need a certain TYPE of blood. NOT “A” or “B” you need “O POSITIVE”! We need Independents who want to JOIN US. What we don’t need are ideologues who wish to take over the party, with “if we don’t get our way it’s “rigged” BULL! Don’t we have enough of that BS from Trump?
So again , although I agree with Secretary Clinton’s statement “we are stronger together”, I also ain’t no fool! As the self proclaimed “Progressive” in the video said “there will be no unity”! Fine. Because I’m not JUST a PUMA, I’m a “raging” PUMA! For those who don’t know what that is, it’s an acronym for “PARTY UNITY MY ASS”! Bernie is running a CON game on the party. A-G-A-I-N! And has been from the beginning. Just think about it. He is ALLOWED to run as a Democrat. He then “accidentally” hacks Sec. Clinton database! He proceeds to use emails within the DNC to become a victim of the Party? The DNC stole the Primary and now those same people “stole” the DNC chair? Trump voters are “misunderstood”. They are just hurting and he feels their pain? The other thing Trump brought to 2016 was “nick names”. Well how about “Lil Donny” for Bernie?
AND IT ALL SOUNDS A LOT LIKE A MAN IN CONSTANT CAMPAIGN MODE.
What we DEMOCRATS MUST UNDERSTAND is this: These rally’s , these TV appearances are suppose to be to further the agenda of the DEMOCRAT PARTY not Bernie Sanders and his organization. BUT THEY ARE!
BERNIE SANDERS AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE NOT PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS. AND WE NEED TO STOP TREATING THEM AS IF THEY ARE!
I for one am sick and tired of all this “rigged” BS and demonizing the Party. The beauty of this country, is you can form your own Political Party. Yeah! It’s legal. Google it. Why waste so much time on such a “terrible” Party? While at the same time, as my late Aunt would say, getting on my last nerve. Yes the Party has problems, but which Party doesn’t. For all our problems I’M A DAMN PROUD DEMOCRAT!
And Bernie needs to grow a pair and quit criticizing DEMOCRATS and form his own Party!
THIS PARTY IS OCCUPIED AND PREPARED TO RESIST TRUMP AND ANY HOSTILE TAKEOVER!
I’v already answered the question I posed. “CAN A NON-DEMOCRAT LEAD DEMOCRATS? I’VE SAID “NO”! WHAT SAY YOU? IF YOU AGREE THEN NEXT COMES WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT IT?
WHAT WE DO IS LET CHUCK SCHUMER KNOW WE WANT BERNIE SANDERS REMOVED, BY CLICKING ON THE LINK BELOW AND SIGNING THE PETITION. “RESISTANCE” IS MULTI-FACETED AND REQUIRES ACTION!
