I think we need someone more extreme than Bernie, AOC, etc to pop up in order for more people to be receptive to our message. MLK’s message sounded alright and normal after listening to Malcolm X. Play good cop bad cop with the people then the government.

Idk who or if this person will ever happen tho. This person will have to be someone we genuinely disagree with (in strategy and some big goals) but still has some similar goals. This can also be applied to the recent protests. If the protests were connected, we could just have the government talk whoever the leader is since they’ll never talk to the rioters/looters/anyone violent. If they meet our demands, the rioting/looting should at least decrease and we get our goals in 👍🏽.

SandersForPresident is going to start a PAC to better organize in pursuit of the Sanders agenda. What do you think we should name it?

r/SandersForPresident is forming a PAC (not a SuperPAC) to assist this community’s efforts to make the Bernie Sanders platform the law of the land in America. What should we call this PAC?

I love you guys, but I think this sub needs a reality check..

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

We all love Sanders, but I think I speak for the majority of level minded people in this sub in saying enough of this “Bernie could still win if he unsuspended his campaign” shit. If Bernie couldn’t win against the establishment in 2 straight primary cycles despite his incredible, unprecedented grassroot support, then it’s pretty clear that this just isn’t his time and America isn’t quite ready either. BUT that’s doesn’t mean this was all a wasted effort! Progressives have built up so much momentum in recent years, and in reality, movements often take decades to finally bear the fruit of their efforts. We are actually trending toward becoming an outlier with how quickly we’ve influenced the political discourse. And I’d bet most of us here have only been invested in this political revolution for 5 years or less. (If you’ve been invested for longer, thank you for paving the way for the rest of us!)

Now I get that it’s hard to accept defeat (especially for a second time), but as a member of the left, you have to learn when to fight and when to take a loss on the chin and focus on the long term winning strategy.

As for this election? Sure, it’s a coin toss as to who will win this election between dumb and dumber, and obviously either way progressives lose. And I’m certainly not voting for Biden or Trump in the general; however…. if Bernie unsuspended his campaign… it would be political suicide and the left will get smeared into oblivion. Just imagine the optics of that situation for a second. We’ve been smeared from the start for even daring to run in the first place. Pulling this stunt will, at a minimum, allow every establishment news station to “validly” compare us to communists trying to stir up a political coup everyday until the American discourse disavows the left entirely. And while hyperbolic, I’d bet the smears would stick way more than any prior ones thrown at Bernie because people are in a heightened state of fear, distrust, and confusion while being glued to their establishment news stations more than ever during this covid quarantine. This is not a good move!

And smearing aside, if we couldn’t convince the populate to choose Bernie over Biden before, what has changed in the last month to make you think we can now?! Because of a rape allegation? Good luck getting the media to cover it fairly now that it’s an establishment Democrat who’s accused. Most people I’ve observed don’t know or care about Biden’s past, they just want him to defeat Trump and bring back the comforts and familiarity of Obama era (talk about aiming for anything but the stars…) The bottomline is that Bernie has no leverage in a rigged system and our 10-20% strong progressive base in America won’t be enough to move that needle, at least not this time around.

Reality check: Biden isn’t dropping out and Bernie isn’t unsuspending his campaign. Is it fair? No. Is it right? No. But does that still mean Bernie unsuspending his campaign would cause the progressive agenda more harm than good in the short AND long run? Yes, yes it does. Besides, the president only has so much power- and while Trump is a deviant, he really hasn’t caused too much harm despite his best efforts because the checks and balances have so often halted his efforts or forced his hand into compromising. We need to stop wishing for a reality that isn’t possible and instead shift our focus towards those congressional races and local elections that can maintain those checks and balances with new progressive voices.

Listen up guys and gals, Berners and Bernies.. I’m sorry everyone is angry and hurting, I certainly am too… but I hope we can move on from this discussion soon. Please still cast your “fuck you establishment” votes for Bernie in the remaining primaries and then in the general election if you’re so inclined.. and then let’s pick ourselves up, learn from this campaign’s mistakes, and get to work on keeping this progressive train rolling. Choo choo motherfuckers.

Why do you think Bernie dropped out?

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

As I'm sure you know the Presidential Candidate, Bernie Sanders, Ended his 2020 campaign.

Bernie who had a great start, and of course continued well by wining California–which was quite an achievement– in the first Super Tuesday. but the second Super Tuesday toured out to be the last straw that broke Bernie's Back.

There are many reasons why Bernie dropped out–among them Lack of celebrities support, low contribution by people, low turn out by the young and so on could be mentioned.

But what do you think is the real reason behind Bernie dropping out?

Do you think there will be a Democratic debate in April?

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

So, it's April and there's still no Dem debate scheduled. From everything I've seen, Biden is running away from the idea of this at all costs, while it was ~1 week ago that some news outlets were reporting that Bernie would debate in April if one was held. Can't find anything that's been said about the matter since then.

Seems to me that there should absolutely be a debate for multiple reasons, but particularly because so much has changed in just the last couple weeks not just globally but also with further information out there about Biden's shady history with women.

What do you think? Will we have a dem debate in April? When will they announce it if so?
