There are a lot of "double agents" out there peddling the "anything but the establishment" narrative. Cheering every time a Sanders supporters comes out and says they won't vote Democrat in November.

This thread is not to convince you to vote for Hillary. But if you want to continue the Progressive agenda, don't be fooled into adhering to the "anything but the establishment" narrative that has been dominating the Republican party. After all, look at what that got them. They're on the verge of nominating an egotistical blowhard full of hot air.

Bernie Sanders has already planted the seeds of the next progressive era, right now there are still a lot of baby boomers and old school Democrats that will get in line and vote for Hillary because they think she's the safe vote. If she indeed gets nominated don't lose hope. At worst she will be Obama 2.0. Not perfect, but she won't bow down to the Republican establishment. Hillary is flawed, I agree, but right now we need someone that can hold the line until Millennials overtake and outnumber baby boomers. Once that happens, Republicans won't be able to do anything to stop it.

In 4 or 8 years there will be another Sanders running, because what this election has told us, the left is on the verge of being ready to nominate a TRUE progressive. Right now it's simply not Bernie's time. People aren't ready. But in a few years they will.

You can all make fun of me and call me a Hillary shill but I don't care.

However keep in mind that the Supreme Court is at stake. Do you seriously think that Trump won't bow down to the Republican establishment and replace Scalia's seat with another Scalia? Do you want that hindering us for the next 30 years? Do you want a supreme court full of conservatives repealing gay marriage?

So Sanders supporters do not be fooled.

As the saying goes, they're not laughing with you, they're laughing at you.

The least we can do this election is vote for a candidate that can hold the line until we are ready to elect a true progressive.

Who are these "double agents"? How do we identify them...by their cheering?

What do you meant 'next' progressive era ?

For over 100 years 'progressives' have been recycling the same old 'tired' ideas.

Hoping the next generation would be dumb enough to buy it.

When they don't ?

Rinse, and Repeat.




You can all make fun of me and call me a Hillary shill but I don't care.


Tell me. What is the difference between Clinton's 'debt free tuition' and Sanders 'free' college?

Other than the obvious word choices.

Last thought here.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, DNC chair, can’t name differences between Democrats, socialists

And just when you can't think it can get better.

Hillary Can’t Explain The Difference Between A Democrat And A Socialist [VIDEO] Read more: dailycaller.com...

The obvious answer is OBVIOUS.

I'm not voting for Trump or Hilary. Gary Johnson it probably will be. Yay...

We're screwed come November. Every night before I go to sleep I pray to the spaghetti monster to indict Hilary for those freakin emails already causing her to drop out of the race.

Spaghetti monster, if you're listening, we could really use some help down here. Amen.

Honestly with the SCOTUS and redistricting on the line this November, throwing hissy fits at the ballot will prevent any chance of a true "Bernielution" for the next 20-30 years probably.

Or just don't vote at all. I refuse to choose between a giant douche and a turd sandwich, I refuse to support a system that gives us such god awful choices election after election, it's like going to a restaurant over and over and giving them money for terrible food that you hate, it's dumb. It's just a big fat joke in my opinion and it's not one that I can laugh at.

Look at the mayhem that has been happening the past couple of weeks, that should speak volumes on the choices we have. They are dividing us more than ever and the candidates in place right now are playing their roles perfectly. Most people are clueless and choose to cheer on their favorite pile of crap, ATS has been a shining beacon of how far their propaganda has infiltrated the people in my opinion. People are falling for it like flies hitting a bug zapper.

Why do you assume most Millennials would agree with your point of view?
I have three kids in that age range and train a couple thousand USN and USMC students a year.
Most all of them seem pretty sharp.

Additionally, you do know that lots of the boomers your kind like to hate were the dirty hippy "progressive" pain in the a$$es of the 60s and 70s.
Some times wisdom does come with the life experiences of age.

Me thinks people ought to be able to vote for who they want to.

Be it Clinton,Sanders or Trump.

Remember now it's not who you vote for, or how often, but WHO counts them in the end.

Democrats have appointed liberal majorities to both Federal district courts and appellate courts thanks to winning 4 of the past 6 presidential elections.

The Supreme court is the last stop on an otherwise liberal Judicial majority. If Hillary wins the judicial branch will be liberal at all levels for years to come.

I want this to continue and that's why I'm voting Hillary this November.

I won't argue with Bernie supporters any more.

After all we're on the same team

So, basically just wait till the ol farts die out and you can take over?
You know that the last 8 years of Obama's Progressive policies are what have helped wreck this country and made us a laughing stock around the world. right? Progressives have had their turn for 8 years. Where has it got us? Please don't tell me you think more jobs at McDonald's counts as adding jobs to the economy. That counting part time, 10 hour a week jobs, as "employed" and use that number to claim they've helped the economy is honest. That ignoring Federal Law on Immigration is good for the country or cherry picking which law to follow, depending on what they're trying to do, is somehow good leadership.
The very reason folks are supporting Trump has nothing to do with wanting to go back to the days of discrimination and/or racism, it's that folks are fed up with the current administration and it's "progressive" policies. They progressed us to the poor house. We can't take any more progress

I am having a difficult time understanding/processing this: THIS IS BEST WE HAVE as candidates on either SIDE?! Where did the smart people disappear to; Private Practice?

If Bernie doesn't get the nomination, I'm voting Jill Stein.

Let the establishment have Trump and his supreme court picks. That will destroy their credibility as a party forever, on both sides of the scam we call red VRS blue in the US.

Not a kid, either. 46 here. Just sick of you.

Trust me, there's very few republicans I would vote for but there's also very few democrats I would vote for too and Clinton is on the naughty list. My main concern for the next candidate is foreign policy. Whose really gonna tackle this so called war on terrorism and stop spending $14 million an hour in the Middle East? That number's probably gone up since I last checked it.

Sanders is it, or Gary Johnson.

This is very true.

My 18 y/o daughter just cast her vote this primary and she voted for Ted Cruz. She did research and said this was the person she identified. When asked by her peer (who didn't bother to register to vote) on why she didn't vote for Bernie Sanders she said "who do you think they want to pay for all of Bernie's free stuff? Me".

Not all millennials are stupid.

ETA: I didn't vote for Cruz, but I am glad she did her own research and came to her own conclusion. I was proud when she voted for the first time. We got a picture together with our I Voted Today stickers.

I don't necessarily agree with the vote, but I absolutely agree with doing your own research. I agree that's GREAT for an 18 year old to care so much, to do the research and pick the person she identifies. Good for her and good for you to have that moment together!
