Why do you think Bernie has a chance to win in the elections

I’m talking about both primaries and general. For the primaries, I think that his last attempt brought him into the presidential spotlight, and this time he’s a front runner instead of an underdog allowing him much better odds of winning. For general, I think the trumps actions will probably motivate a lot more people to vote. What about you?

The Bernie episode on Joe Rogans podcast is now the 8th most viewed episode of JRE at 8.3 million views! Do you think we can share that video enough to get it to 13.5 million and pass Ben Shapiro to get into 3rd place all time!? Let’s atleast try! #FeelTheBern

I know it might be cheesy but that video has brought a lot of centrists to our side and I think it would add some cache to Bernie’s starpower and it’ll motivate him to get on more long form podcasts!

An approach I think Bernie should take.

I think Bernie would benefit tremendously in many different ways, if he made a simple statement and plan of action, one that mostly consists of views and plans he's already shared, akin to:

A plan for repairing our relationship with our neighbor to the south, and hopefully with the help and teamwork of Mexico and other nations, work towards improving both the issues of drug violence as well as the immigration situation.

this alone is an obvious good and pretty neutral statement to make, which appeals to all political sides here, and hopefully even with Mexico. It addresses two issues everyone is concerned with, even if they differ in opinion of what to do about it.

One thing we can do right away is to federally legalize cannabis/marijuana, both for the ample obvious reasons we have to do so, but also specifically to take the money and funding out of the criminal and cartel hands, both here at home and in Mexico. The Mexican government has already shown interest in this idea and approach to addressing the cartel situation, and I believe if we work together this could ultimately be a very effective strategy. From there I'm sure we can figure out even more approaches to removing the cartels' funding completely and taking them out of business.

Bernie has already announced his support for legalization. This is just using that in an even farther reaching political way and addressing more issues with it. Also since Mexico is thinking this way already, there is no reason not to use it to regain favor with them as well.

And especially if it can be tied in with the idea that improving the situation in Mexico (by taking money/power from the cartels thus hopefully increasing safety etc, as well as potentially other aid-like options I think the U.S. could do, but that's another story) can ultimately lead to a lessening in the need to immigrate in the first place … This whole idea can start to reach across the aisle in appeal for the more reasonable conservative voters.

I feel like not only is this idea smart politically but also really the only logical approach to actually combat drug violence. Obviously there's more to it than marijuana, but it's a good start to the approach.

I was gonna flesh this idea out more but I'm tired and gonna sleep instead. I'm just also real tired of seeing in my head like the seemingly obvious political moves for candidates to take this election and garner more support, but like nobody is making any substantial smart moves. Nothing really. Maybe if we start talking about these ideas more, these geniuses in D.C. might actually put some of them to use and not just gift wrap the election for trump, again.

But yeah, let me know what you think and feel free to share any other ideas on this, or any other approach you think might be smart for Bernie to take.

Do you think it’s possible that the ones saying a far left nominee is too high a risk, are being swayed by Russian meddling?

I never really had a nose for politics, just looked at my parents, both teachers, and thought they live in a bubble. and have had my gut tell me different things in different elections. But it's not like there's any chance just cause the party chooses any unprecedented nominee than I wouldn't vote for them or vote at all. Trump could ridicule them in the debates all the love long day but it wouldnt phase me. Even if AOC were eligible as the nominee, who I think is too inexperienced for her own good and has lost all objectivity for her current position, if she was the nominee I'd still vote because this isn't about anyone except getting Trump out. This may be a hard truth and not a sugar coated American story about hope, but, ideals are gone with the wind.

but anyway I think and it showed in the midterms that a lot of dems and independents are rallying around the party strongly. So who really is not going to vote if someone like Bernie or Warren becomes the nominee!? It seems to me that anyone who is sick and tired of the last 2-3 yrs have too much motivation to vote against Trump.

So why am I hearing rhetoric that a moderate candidate is the most logical choice? The republicans always have a crazy and Trump is the perfect example and yet he still had the full support of the party (and honestly still has more than he deserves).

Edit: one word

Does anyone else think it’s complete shit how primaries and caucuses are held?

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

Like it might actually end up helping Sanders, but they way certain states like Iowa and NH decide the entire race is actually the stupidest system I've ever seen.

Why are some primaries WEEKS before others? why do a handful of states before "super tuesday" always get to decide who stays in the race for us plebians in late voting states to vote on?

It's literally giving people in certain states WAY more voting power than others, and I don't understand why everyone seems so ok with it. people literally say "if you don't win any of the first 4-5 states, drop out so you don't spoil other candidates"

What do you all think of this video including Bernie?

CNBC uploaded a video yesterday on the rising popularity of Democratic Socialism, and heavily features Bernie and AOC in the video. Overall, I believe it is a good video, but could've done more to show the difference between democratic socialism and communism/authoritarianism (USSR) & how "socialism" is just used as a scare tactic to make people think we want the US to be identical to the USSR.

Would just like to hear what you all think, & if you think it's a good video or not. Hope this doesnt go against Rule #3, though it does highly include/talk about Bernie.

What is a Democrat? The Bernie isn’t one I think, I don’t know argument

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

I have been told a number of times by ardent Democrats that "Bernie is NO Democrat!" When I asked what exactly is a Democrat to see how Bernie isn't one or a variation of the argument a Liberal I never get a straight answer. It's usually like this:

  • "Democrat" – Bernie is NOT a Democrat
  • Me – What's a Democrat exactly?
  • "Democrat" – Something Bernie is not.
  • Me – That didn't answer my question
  • "Democrat" – I don't have time to explain to Bernie Bros/bots
  • Me – Do you actually know or are you just echoing the DNC?
  • "Democrat" – BLOCKED!!!!

I feel this comes from the fact that if they actually started explaining the core principles of what they think the Democrat party is – helping the poor, fighting for equality, ending our wars of intervention, fighting for workers' rights, calling for police reform, etc… – that they can't really separate Bernie from this as his record shows a consistency on being on the right side of history when many of his opponents including the entire Democratic party at one point were not. He's more like what I used to think Democrats were supposed to be like FDR, Kennedy, Carter who held high ideals and worked for the progress of all. Since 2016, I realize the DNC is simply corrupt and paid opposition while their followers are naive supporters of a sports team they don't even know who the players are anymore only the color of their jerseys.

Anyway, I say press those people to say what they think a Democrat is then ask how Bernie is not that and more (unless they say the DNC is corrupt and inept – lol!).
