How do you feel about many on the Left who abandoned Bernie and are still Hillary apologists all of a sudden now are enamored with AOC?

I love Ocasio-Cortez and really hope she will reach the presidency in the future and is a great person to spread Bernie's original message however what bothers me is many now who still continue to bash Bernie and still love Hillary claiming her loss was the result of anything but her being a bad corporate candidate now love AOC isn't that hypocritical/poorly educated? I feel like that's our {The Left's} major flaw right now disunity and lack of knowledge of the core beliefs of our canidates. It seems now we are to quickly to decide we like someone based solely on gender/race/age etc. I've seen so many people bashing Bernie for no apparent reason yet hail AOC as the hero of the democratic party when their ideologies are nearly exactly the same. I'm really afraid this kind of mindset might scew us over in the election this year especially seeing the bad media already throwing hits at the likes of Bernie and Tulsi Gabbard.

I feel like Sanders has misunderstod the Scandinavian modell.

*Note that i am not super well read on the subject and this post is only to clarify things for me.

Bernie Sanders has said that he wants the US to be more like Scandinavia, but i feel like he has misunderstod the model when he wants to greatly raise the estate tax when we don't even have an estate tax here in Sweden.

The experince i have of the Scandinavian model is that it has high income taxes but low taxes on estate, inheritance and investmenst. Bernie though seems very keen on just taxing the shit out of everything.

Do you feel there are divisions/judgements in the Democrat Party not based on platforms that could keep Democrats from being united in 2020?

I have seen on many groups and in many comment sections with for example democrats of all races saying I will NOT vote for a white male especially not an old white male because "that's who got us into this situation in the first place". These type of comments get 100's of likes and it just feels wrong. I for one would love to see a woman president or a woman minority president, or a minority president especially as someone of native background a native american president would be amazing but for me its all about platforms first. It seems to me many just want to pick whoever can be the next 1st without taking their actual platforms into consideration. I only see 2 or 3 big name politicians with platforms similar to Sanders and those 2 or 3 are not being talked about a lot of potential candidates. I also still here large numbers stating Hillary would still be a good candidate/was best candidate in 2016. I'm just wondering how you all feel about this as Sanders supporters.

Zogby: Palestinian rights are the measure of a politician’s strength of character, integrity, & ability to resist political pressure. When asked about Palestinians, you can see & feel most politicos panic or say what they’ve been told to say. This issue sets Bernie apart. He’s strong.
