So many Democrats get upset when a Sanders supporter says no to Hillary. In reality we get to have our choices to, HRC is not entitled to our votes. The presidential race has been a choice of the lesser of two evils for most American voters for decades now. But we do have choices other than those given to us by two parties organizers the RNC and DNC. Both the RNC & DNC are giving you corporate politicians, these politicians don't care about "we the people" but cater to the profits of the elite that own corporations.

HRC is corporately owned and Sanders supporters are not, Sanders supporters have a vision of America without HRC and her corporate rule! No she is not entitled to Sanders supporters and I doubt she can earn their trust! lol's


Throughout the last few weeks, mainstream media outlets and political pundits alike have incessantly derided the many supporters of Bernie Sanders who claim that they will not be voting for Hillary Clinton in November, should she win the Democratic nomination. Pundits argue that if they effectively fail to rally behind Hillary, Bernie’s supporters will be to blame in November if Donald Trump is subsequently elected. Here is why the pundits are definitively wrong, and why this rhetoric is not only misleading, but incredibly offensive to the democratic proces



Second, it is fallacious to assume that those who are claiming “Bernie or Bust” (i.e. those who refuse to rally behind Clinton if Bernie is not the nominee) are staunch Democrats to begin with. It is even more fallacious to believe that Hillary Clinton is somehow entitled to the support of Bernie’s voters, just by her very nature of running for President as a Democrat. Bernie is posing such a significant threat to Clinton and the Democratic Party establishment because of the fact that he is able to effectively accomplish something that Hillary Clinton has proven time and time again that she cannot: expanding the base of the Democratic Party. Throughout the last few months, it has become increasingly more clear that Bernie Sanders is succeeding precisely because he is bringing in new voters to the Democratic Party’s primary elections, including (but certainly not limited to) first-time voters, Independents, moderate Republicans, Civil Libertarians, Green Party voters, and the politically disenfranchised. It is arguable that these Bernie supporters, who by many accounts do not consider themselves to be bogged down by a staunch alignment to our two-party system (a trend that is becoming increasingly-popular amongst Americans) would not have been Clinton supporters in the first place. In fact, we now know that many of Bernie’s supporters would have instead opted out of voting in their state’s primary elections, had it not been for his presence in the race, which explains the record-breaking voter-turnout in many of the primary elections won by Bernie thus far, and the devastatingly low voter-turnout in the states won by Hillary.


A interesting read! source

I found this exerpt in the article interesting -

Because Bernie seems to really be reeling in the new voters, and this is one reason that Billary should show more concern. The Bern is becoming more desirable as we move forward, seemingly to many of the Republican party.... IMHO.

Good thought provoked thread Alaskandad!

Hows that ?

I thought socialists were all about sharing things they didn't earn.

Hillary will just take Bernie as her VP...and TAKE his supporters. Most of Sanders' supporters will jump on the Hillary mobile, once Bernie has been field-dressed and securely strapped on her hood.

I would not vote for a Clinton Sanders ticket, I am sure some would, but not all!

It makes me sad, to think the hilley corp could be in charge of America.

When there is a R or D in front of the candidate they always suck! unless you're a lobbyist!

I've not seen an R or D that I wanted to vote for, since I foolishly voted for Billy boy way back when!

Neo that is the problem! You let someone else think for you, by passing off a talking point as your thought.

Good point!


Sanders would grow the party, Clinton will continue its decline.

People vs Corps!

At least I'm not regurgitating some asinine ideology created by Marx, and trying to pass it off as my 'own'.

I don't know.
I possibly could vote for that ticket depending on where things are going with the whole email thing...
And there are always nut jobs it there who would draw a bead from a distance...thought it would happen with Obama, though...first sort of black president. Maybe picking Biden saved his life. Who the hell would want president Biden outside of Dullaware?

If my choices are Clinton/Sanders or Trump and universe only knows, I might do it. Might. And only if Bernie is on the ticket. Clinton and anyone else, ANYONE ELSE, and I'll stay warm at home this November and vote absentee for school board and senate and whatever.

Who is doing that?
Marx was a Communist.

This isn't the elementary school playground. Nyah, Nyah's and neener neeners aren't necessary on ATS.

Yep he sure was. That is where class warfare comes from. That's where ALL socialist 'ideology' comes from.

Speaking of "socialist ideology", I've found Thatcher's words to be of great amusement to me:

"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money [to spend]." or "Eventually, Socialists run out of other peoples' money [to spend]."

There is one thing socialists never seem to run out of.

Recycling the same old ideas homing the next generation would be dumb enough to buy it.

If the evil Clinton slithers into office it will prove that America is controlled by shadowy figures in the backrooms of the CFR.

What do the Republicans offer? give the rich enough tax breaks and you poor folk will get good jobs? eliminate the EPA because protecting our ground, air and water cost the rich too much??? Unions are the problem!

They do the same thing, hoping the poor folk will believe it.

Why would anyone WANT Bernie's supporters? For the most part they are ignorant, uneducated people under 30 that haven't worked their whole lives to put anything into retirement. Most of his supporters are just looking for free stuff at the expense of working people.
