Why Bernie Sanders over Warren/Harris?

Not trying to get my opinion swayed as I am all for Bernie. I am asking if there is any good sources as to why Bernie is the right choice for 2020? I know Harris has a history of being pretty right-wing on crime and Warren is just economically progressive as a facade. Is there a good list anywhere that I could use to educate myself for talking points when people tell me they prefer Harris/Warren (Usually because of identity politics, unfortunately)?

TL;DR Looking for a list/compilation of reasons not to vote for them

Should the Sanders campaign work to generate support in states by showcasing how corporations have benefited from state tax policies over the past few decades? For Republicans and corporate Democrats, shift the tax burden at the state level to workers is a win-win. Corporations pay less, and the public becomes sensitized to high taxes and more receptive to pro-tax cut propaganda. Joe Biden and Republicans likes to talk about states rights when it suites them. Maybe it is time to talk corporate taxes at the state level too. As indicated in the 2016 link, "In 36 of 46 states collecting corporate income taxes, net corporate revenues grew at a slower rate than total revenue over the past 20 years." Some of the more extreme examples … In Ohio, corporate tax revenues dropped 81% versus a 64% overall increase. In Michigan, it was a 72% drop in corporate taxes versus a 56% overall increase. In Louisiana, it was a 54% drop in corporate taxes versus a 68% overall increase. So regular people are seeing their taxes going up while corporations, and their investors are going to be reaping the rewards … unless the corporations are paying their employees well, giving bonuses, etc. https://www.governing.com/topics/finance/gov-disappearing-corporate-taxes.html

Why should I vote for Bernie Over Warren?

Disclaimer: I’m posting this in good faith. Bernie will likely be the democratic nominee, but I honestly don’t feel the Bern. I’m not trying to debate or troll- I just want to understand him better or see if there is something I’m missing. My mind is open.

Honestly, the arguments I have seen for Bernie haven’t convinced me he’d be the best candidate for the job. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE how progressive he is. And if it was 2016, I would have voted for him.

But now it’s 2020, and all the candidates have the same platform, and Warren perfects his platform imo with her detailed plans. The fact that he’s been consistent is great, but the fact of the matter is that Warren has been pretty consistent since she’s turned into a democrat. I also haven’t been super impressed by his debate performance, and feel like he gives a lot of platitudes (feel free to argue with this).

What am I missing? What inspires you so much about Bernie that you don’t see in Warren?

AOC: “Student loans are a scam. That’s why I join Bernie Sanders, Pramila Jayapal & Ilhan Omar to forgive ALL student loans AND make colleges tuition-free. PS: for the cost of the GOP tax scam (~$2 TRILLION), we could’ve already forgiven every student loan in America w/ billions left over.”

For the debates, I hope Sen. Sanders raises outrage over the near unlimited injustice that the extremely wealthy can impose on regular people.

We see graphs and statistics about wealth inequality, but I hope Senator Sanders will use the bully pulpit to raise awareness and public outrage over the sordid injustice that goes hand in hand with the status quo. Crimes committed against regular people don't seem to matter much if there is serious money to be made, or very rich people to protect. Joe Paterno, Penn State university executives, and the Governor of Pennsylvania (when he was a prosecutor) sure seemed less than aggressive in addressing Jerry Sandusky's rapes of children; https://abcnews.go.com/US/pennsylvania-governors-handling-jerry-sandusky-case-investigation/story?id=18378718. Politically connected billionaires get away with about anything; https://www.vox.com/2018/12/3/18116351/jeffrey-epstein-trump-clinton-labor-secretary-acosta. Wealth inequality affects many aspects of our lives, and I hope Senator Sanders reminds Americans that unlimited money buys near unlimited immunity, and that the associated powerlessness of 99.999% of Americans is something that the US Constitution was built to defend against.
