My prediction – Tulsi as Bernie’s debate attack dog, later VP candidate

Bernie is too nice when he debates, and that was part of why he could never call out his 2016 opponent on obvious lies.

This time, Tulsi will take no shit and be on the offensive while Bernie gets to keep his hands clean (have you seen her speeches recently? Shes on fire)

In return for helping knock down the right wing faction of the party in the debates, she drops out after Iowa or NH, endorses Bernie, and later becomes VP. He already said he is leaning toward picking a woman…

What do you think of this theory?

Q: What to do when establishment’s anointed candidate (Harris) co-opts Bernie’s message?

A: Push them further. Medicare for All is a fantastic program but it is certainly not enough. The next step is to take on the greed of Big Pharma which created the opioid crisis. And perhaps antitrust action on big hospitals which jack up prices.

Keep the populist rhetoric up until Kamala Harris has to take so many popular left wing positions that she can't break them all, and is forced to go into detail on exactly HOW she would do it. We shouldn't bother trying to persuade people this early with attacks…a better strategy is to shift the center of gravity to the point where Kamala has to either stop talking like a progressive or break with her establishment support. Either way we win.

Here is an analogy – when General Grant was fighting for the Union, his style of leadership was this. When you get a victory, follow up aggressively and immediately before your enemy has a chance to regroup. Kamala Harris saying she wants to eliminate private health insurance is a victory for us, we need to follow up. Calling her dogshit is not going to do anything except make everyone think we are assholes, it certainly won't persuade any Kamala-stans. Shifting the conversation left is the best option in my opinion.

WaPo: Sanders only appears to be the most electable candidate (but he’s not for reasons they will tell us later)

No media bias at WaPo. By this WaPo article's own metrics, Sanders is the best candidate to beat Trump. But wait – those metrics can only be applied to ALL OF THE OTHER CANDIDATES, but not to Sanders. Don't ask why – they'll tell us later, much later – like sometime after they can come up with a really, really good reason that they haven't thought of yet.

What’s with all the hate for Bernie from the previous election and even now?? He’s the only candidate that makes logical sense.

I voted for Bernie in the primaries of the last election and I was so disgusted to find out that Hilary beat him. How can people idiotically support someone who is so politically corrupt?

On top of all that, people drank the kool aid and thought trump would be a great president for our country. I didn’t vote in the actual election because trump and Hilary were 2 different faces on the same coin.

Now everyone hates him and no one is willing to admit they were wrong. America elected in an incompetent buffoon into power, this really made me lose faith in the system.

Now that Bernie is planning on running for the 2020 election, those same people are shitting all over Bernie.

The question is… why???

Bernie is a saint and America’s last hope. He actually gives a damn about the people, he’s already old, what does he have to gain from politics monetarily at this point?

It really makes me angry and honestly, at this point all I can do is donate money to Bernie’s campaign, vote for him, and spread the word.

If he doesn’t become president after the next election, then I’ve lost all hope.

How can American citizens be this naive when our savior is right in front of our very own eyes?
