Bernie Sanders is possibly one of the best politicians, from a moral standpoint, to ever run for office

It literally hurts to see these libs complain about how IT"S ALL ABOUT BERNIE when Bernie never, ever made it about him. He ate a steaming bowl of humble pie in '16 to help Hillary. He's done everything in his power, at every step, to help the US and the down trodden. And these people hate him for it.

I think the people who actually hate Bernie hate that he shows them the man behind the curtain, that everything in Oz is a facade, that the US govt hasn't had the people's interests at heart for the last 90 years, maybe ever. They hate that he shows them a mirror. For this reason, I cannot accept another candidate for 2020. I did it in '16. Never again. If they aren't willing to help the common person, and truly help them, it's not worth it.

What's the difference between Obama locking up immigrants and and Trump? Trump's a little harsher about it? What's the difference between Bush invading Iraq and Obama basically reinvading Iraq? What's the difference between "Leading from Behind" in Libya (creating a literal broken state) and arming the Saudi's against Yemen? Obama let the banks throw people out of their houses, then jailed exactly 0 people responsible for the great recession.

When the bills are piling up, my job is cutting hours, and healthcare is as accessible as the moon, does it matter if the boot on my neck is Blue or Red?

“Not Voting For Biden is Voting For Trump”

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Seen this a lot lately and thought I'd throw out my counter-argument.

If (1) Biden can only win against Trump if Bernie supporters vote for him, and (2) Biden supporters suspected most Bernie supporters wouldn't vote for Biden, and (3) Biden supporters tend to be "Vote Blue No Matter Who" people,

Then Biden supporters should have voted for Bernie in the primary because they would still vote Bernie but Bernie supporters wouldn't necessarily vote Biden.

It won't be Bernie supporters fault if when* Biden loses to Trump, but the fault of Biden supporters for not supporting the Democratic base that was motivated by Bernie.

It's so clear that they're already building the narrative that Bernie's to blame for Biden losing, I don't think they even believe that Biden can win. It's pretty flipping frustrating and I'm not even American. I can't even imagine how y'all feel.

*Under the idea that Biden wins the primary, which is NOT necessarily true! Vote, vote, vote!

I’ve got a friend that is determined to be a Biden voter. Is there a primer, or a list of links to sway her?

She's adament that Biden is the only chance to defeat Trump. I've sent her some info about how that isn't true, but am wondering if someone has a concise list of the skeletons Biden has, evidence of Bernie's unwavering history, and whom will be the stronger candidate.

Some observations as an European for M4A against the argument that ‘there are long waiting times’

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

So I saw The View (and don’t want to get more into that) and one of the hosts made the claim (which I’ve seen before) that under M4A there would be long waiting times to getting an appointment and what if you can’t wait for so long. I live in Europe and my country’s healthcare system is basically what Bernie is advocating. To some specialized doctors – yes, there can be waiting times up to a month or so.

However, what I haven’t seen anybody address is that even though some rare cases you might have to wait for a little amount of time is that in case you cannot wait, you can always go to the emergency care. Urgent care does not only cover the care for immediately life threatening cases but also cases in which you cannot get help from anywhere else in the necessary amount of time (thus some urgency is needed). E.g. there are eye infection emergency rooms separate from others. You just don’t call the emergency number but you just go to the emergency room yourself. I’ve never heard that anyone who really had any problem that needed to be addressed would have been denied care. We also have an alternative to face-to-face help – there is a 24H line you can call and general practicioners answer – they will help you based on your symptoms to choose where to turn to with your problem. Additionally, you can e-mail your own GP with pictures etc and they can write you a digital prescription, if they are sure of the diagnosis. You can get emergency help for all conditions – including mental.

Also I have to mention that if you are insured under your coutries policies then your country will usually cover your healthcare if anything is to happen to you in another EU country, so you don’t have to worry about having emergency care in other EU countries and receiving a huge bill for that.

Maybe you can use this as a counterpoint in a conversation or maybe this just helps to complete your understanding of (one of) Europe’s healthcare system(s). (Wrote this on my phone so excuse for any grammar/spelling mistakes)
