This country has had too many straight, white old men presidents. We need something new, diverse, while Bernie is more of the same.

Electing Bernie Sanders would make him the 46th straight, white, old man in a row to be president. Why do you so called progressives want this trend to continue, when many younger, women and people of color candidates have the same policies he does, or in some cases even better policies? Bernie has more of an imperialistic foreign policy as evidence by his support for NATO, support for invading Yugoslavia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Somalia. Does the international proletariat not matter? Foreign policy is a huge reason why Tulsi Gabbard should be the preferential candidate to yet another old white man. She's diverse in her background and her ideas. She can bring people of varying sects together. With Bernie, he only attracts millennial whites, hence the sexist and racist Bernie Bros of 2016. He cannot motivate a diverse crowd like Tulsi can.

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.

There are so many Democrats running in the primary. If we work out asses off, maintain and expand on the level of support Bernie got in 2016, the rest of the Dems will split the primary vote and Bernie wins. It’s up to us to make it happen. Are y’all ready??! #Bernie2020

If we maintain and expand the level of support Bernie got in 2016, the other Dems will likely split the vote and Bernie wins.

But it’s up to us to make it happen.

Ignore the pundits and the naysayers. We know how much we won in 2016, and were better prepared than ever to increase that level of support now.

We have to volunteer, donate, spread the word to every body who will listen.

Bernie can only do so much, we have to power this movement.

Y’all ready?

Q: Why isn’t anyone talking about how many state’s primaries are structured in a way that prevents independents from voting in them?

I was just reading a thread that went through the typical talking point maelstrom: DNC corruption vs. didn't support Hillary vs. not a real Democrat vs. 3rd parties split votes, FPTP system vs. doesn't fundraise for party vs. progressive caucus Etc. Etc.

No one ever seems to talk about reforming the many state's closed primaries so that they're more inclusive and alllow for more independent participation. It's arguable that this was a large component among the many other advantages Clinton had over him in the primary, no?

He did great in states with open caucuses and poorly in closed primaries. It was certainly a talking point at the time(https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vox.com/platform/amp/2016/4/28/11469468/open-primaries-closed-primaries-sanders) but for some reason doesn't get hurled by Bernie Bros at Shillbots with nearly the same frequency as these other, arguably less important, tired old talking points.

The issue of super delegates was dealt with. What gives?

Bernie Sanders: “The Maduro government has waged a violent crackdown on Venezuelan civil society, violated the constitution by dissolving the National Assembly and was re-elected last year in an election many observers said was fraudulent. The economy is a disaster and millions are migrating.”

This sub needs to be alive. The movement needs to have the same passion it had 4 years & honestly it is not there.

We need more active participation from everyone.

So can people start sharing their stories about 2016/How active & involved you were ?

Did you think you will come back? When did you come back & are you ready for the political revolution?
