Sanders being a better candidate than Warren Argument

A lot of people have been discussing Warren vs Sanders. Let me give certain points why Sanders is a far superior candidate than Warren –

  1. Past History & Struggles – Sanders displayed extreme courage to go to jail in his 20s protesting segregation. He fought against Republicans & Democrats promoting oligarchy through incredibly hard 3rd party politics & had a much tougher road than what he would have had he taken the easy road through a Democratic Primary. He ran in 2016 to shift the ideological position. Warren was a life-long Republican while Reagan was destroying the social fabric, attacking single mothers, cutting welfare & cutting taxes on wealthy by half. She was the progressive option but displayed no courage in 2016. She stayed out & let Hillary run through which would have brought Neoliberalism back, only because she could VP or something of that sort. She didn't endorse Bernie in 2016 despite the ideological similarity.

  2. Visionary vs Copycat about Medicare for All – Warren has little expertise on Medicare for all but worse over 6-7 years, she never supported it while Sanders has supported it for decades. She campaigned on building the ACA & only reluctantly agreed to support M4A after Booker, Gillibrand, Harris & everyone else was on board & she did it to not look right wing. Sanders took an issue which had 0 support in Senate & made in mainstream. When there will be 100s of Millions of $ by Pharma & Insurance who will stand his ground. Who has the guts to pressurize Bennet or Coons? Elizabeth Warren can never get Medicare-for-all past. She is an okay ally to have on that policy on that Senate, but not as the leader as the POTUS.

  3. Movement Leader & Grassroots Support – Sanders has 1M Volunteers & 2.5M donations. Warren doesn't have half of that. Sanders has a committed & dedicated & passionate base who will be with him after the election to help make change. Warren doesn't have the base that Sanders has & no plan to make change.

  4. Past Results – Veterans Bill 96-4, War Powers Act, Amazon & Disney raising 15$ Min Wage, US House passing Bernie's 15$ Wage, Amendment King in House, US War/DOMA Vote, War Powers act & so on. Warren has 0 accomplishments & is flop in terms of results.

  5. Warren is the candidate of Rich White Elites – Warren is doing horrible among Black & Hispanic voters despite very high name recognition & likeability. Not only that her primary voters are above 100K$ in Income while Sanders' key base is 50K$ & under. Warren is the candidate of majorly White High Income voters while Sanders represents black, white, brown low income working folks. Who do you want to see represented in the white house?

  6. Warren's bad Foreign Policy record – Warren previously over the years time & again, has voted for Trump's 700B$ Military budget & has taken hawkish stances on Israel. Sanders is a known anti-war candidate preaching humanity & human rights & voting against huge military budgets.

  7. Political Courage vs Political Expediency – Sanders was in the frontline leading against Dakota Pipeline while Warren never took a stand. Neither did she take one in 2016. Warren takes politically expedient calls to further her political ambition & may sell out on M4A if need be & in other areas while Sanders can take tough positions including like giving felons the right to vote.

  8. GE Candidate Strength – Warren may win or may lose as she is politically not smart instinct wise. She played into Trump's hands with the DNA test. She has lied about being Native American previously in various employment opportunities. And she foolishly responds to Trump. Trump has control over Warren. Plus the Dem Candidate needs to win big over Trump so that the Senate & House Dem Candidates also win. Otherwise nothing passes with Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader.

Warren has had 0 criticism. Not 1 question about how she implements her policies or lies about being Native American or GE vulnerability or being a follower in terms of M4All. The Corporate Media is using her as a tool to steal Bernie's progressive base & is fawning over her.

Bernie is the last chance of a Historic Political Realignment which happens once in 40+ years (FDR is 30s, Reagan in 80s). Sanders can lead a new progressive era. Sanders & Warren are not the same candidates. He is a more honest, authentic candidate has been in the picketlines for labour, who resurrected a dead progressive movement single handedly.

Also don't go by the polls only. They change. Many of these polls have 20-25% of voters above 100K income which is nowhere near the voting population. The Fox poll didn't sample Independents. Polls give a general feeling & are all over the place. 25-30% may well be enough to win early states.

Sanders needs to win over Warren. I hope above argument is enough to convince others. Feel free to add more points

As I understand it if no one wins the nomination on the first ballot, the delegates are free to vote for whoever they choose on the second ballot.

If that is true, then we should make an organized effort to recruit as many hardcore Bernie supporters as possible to become delegates for Biden, Harris, etc. so they can nominate Bernie on the second ballot.

OPINION: Bernie needs to make himself THE environmental candidate to stand out

We all know Bernie views climate change as the biggest threat to our country and takes it very, very seriously. In fact he is probably the ONLY candidate that is ready to fight the big money interests and fossil fuel industry to make sure that climate change is effectively combated. But I am afraid many people do not see this as a big issue for his platform, and I think that is something that could be easily fixed.

Imagine at the debate next week he makes it a point to discuss climate change seriously and tells everyone that there is nothing more important in the short term than the long term health of the planet. He needs to drop the income and wealth inequality rhetoric for just a moment if he's going to attract anyone new – this is coming from someone who has watched nearly every rally/interview/forum/speech Bernie has done since he announced he was running 2015. I am deeply afraid that if he does not change his messaging relatively soon he will max out the support and be unable to differentiate himself from Biden, Warren or Harris.

Not only would making climate change the biggest issue separate him – it would make him look extremely intelligent and prepared to fight the biggest fight of our species. That's the framing he needs to pull in all of the support from the under-45 group. He has most of the under-45 support already, but if he can really make himself seem like THE climate candidate, on top of being the wealth inequality champion and all other forms of social/racial/economic justice, I believe his base will only grow.

Anyone's thoughts on this? It just seems like an easy play to jump out ahead of the other candidates and make everyone else have to play catch up.

Can we get a comprehensive list of companies that do not support Bernie or who have thrown their support behind another candidate?

I'm personally tired of companies thinking they can say and support whatever they want and still have my business. What am I using everyday that needs to stop because of their ignorance on Bernie?

I always jumped on the bandwagon that Sanders was a commie and making everything like health and education free would just raise taxes. Honestly I didn't see any difference as a middle class citizen with Trump in office and being a new Yorker, I pay ridiculously high prices for insurance.

How would Sanders make it better for the average American without us paying an arm and a leg in taxes?

This isn't an attack, I actually want us to be on par with many countries when it comes to many things like health insurance.
