They sided with HRC before he announced his running!



So, he decided to run as a democrat to give himself better chances.

Yeah...that makes no sense.

I would love to see Bernie run as a Democratic Socialist.

That's what he is. He's got the nationwide recognition now.

I for one would have far more personal respect for him than lining up as a Democrat (who are not, by the way, socialists).

Tear it up, Bernie.

I also hope to see the actual fiscal conservatives/religious right in the Republican Party field their own candidate, as Trump is obviously neither.

But, the Republicans, at least at this moment, have apparently decided to pull together ... we'll see if the rank and file agree.

Back on topic:


What appears to be happening is that the Clinton camp and the DNC are trying to paint ALL Sanders supporters as having a violent history so they have justification for arresting them at the convention for the most minor of infractions, such as voicing their opinion. Dianne Feinstein is already making comparisons to what happened in 1968, setting the stage for the police to round up anyone the DNC disagrees with.

There's been isolated incidents of violence coming from each camp.. more than any other election since 1968? I doubt it. Where are these violent leftist revolutionaries? Where's even a violent bro?

No-one is attempting to portray all Sanders supporters as violent criminals. Most people understand that the bulk of his supporters are students concerned with their debt load, idealists, and minorities who feel their needs are not addressed by the two major parties. The problem is that Sanders is also attracting people who consider themselves to be "revolutionaries." Sanders needs to strongly disavow these factions and their violence. Instead, his supporters seem to be taking refuge in denial, creating paranoid fantasies to avoid confronting this very real issue.

I guess you don't follow the news:

If he ran as a third party candidate I would actually vote for him -- because I am confident he could exceed 5% of the vote.

If he did that, I'd be impressed that he would put a cause like tearing down the two-party system above supporting the eventual Democratic nominee, Hillary. It's his loyalty to the DNC that keeps me from trusting him. If he's who he claims to be, 'party loyalty' would not be his priority.

They are not necessarily Sanders supporters so much as Anti-Trumpers... still, there was not this much violence during primary season in decades.

Protesters going overboard on a cop car do not violent revolutionaries make.

No, I literally mean self described Bernie supporters.

Just to correct the record:

The Nevada Dems swiftboated Sen Sanders delegates as being violent, yet there is no proof of their claims of chair throwing.

Then there is the claim of death threats, where none exist.

It's swiftboating and the dirty politics that HRC is known for!

That's one of the ironies here. If polling suggested that Sanders could beat Trump in a three way race I would vote for him, if only to defeat Trump. Unfortunately, his words and actions have become divisive, and he is failing to demonstrate that he understands the implications of his own "movement."

I'm not sure how I'd view Bernie at this point if he ran as an Independent or as a Democratic Socialist. I really like Bernie, and I was very glad to see some of the issues that he raised ... but something seems to have happened to him along the way.

I think we mistrust him at this point for the same reason ... with different causes, LOL.

I think Trump will continue to serve the role as the 'Divisive Candidate,' until the very end. By comparison, no other candidate will seem as divisive because Trump's race & gender issues will always be in the headlines. Oh, and he'll continue to be the 'Instigator Candidate,' too.

That's my prediction, anyway.

Setting up a Bernie supporter is easy.

Just have them show up somewhere, let them loose, and something is bound to happen.


This post. The one quoted just above these words. Hell Yeah!!

I hope Sanders lets the Bern Squad out with matches and gasoline. Bern it Down!! Set it alight and let's watch the world Bern!!

Up until 1972 the party decided the nominee. Primaries are an experiment in allowing people a place in the process. Superdelegates are the parties ace in the hole if they don't make the right choice.

For the same reason Ron Paul ran as a Repub, to stand a snow balls chance in Hell of winning the race. I guess you guys don't remember, but Bernie was basically an unknown before the race began and so much so that ALL the media outlets were laughing at the idea of him running. So had he ran as an independent and not had the resources of the DNC he would still be an unknown.

That's why I'll probably be voting for Gary Johnson to help get 5% needed so a 3rd party can be as powerful as the DNC and RNC.
