A great story on how Sanders has betrayed the Democratic Party! All this from our good friends and Salon!

How could Bernie do this after all the Democrats have done for him!

They are mad because he is running as an independent for his Senate seat as he has done for the last 20 years! LOL

www.salon.com...



This doesn't mean, however, that the DNC was wrong for distrusting Sanders' sincerity when he claimed to be a Democrat.
The fact that Sanders has just announced he will run for reelection in 2018 as an independent underscores that point.

There are millions of Americans who, unlike Sanders, actually do identify as Democrats. They do not consider the label to be a badge of shame but a genuine reflection of their political values. When Sanders enters and leaves the Democratic Party at his own convenience, it implicitly insults all of those Democratic voters — and raises questions about what other expediencies Sanders would be willing to resort to in order to achieve his political goals.
Just because the DNC was wrong for rigging the primaries against Sanders doesn't mean Sanders is right today for not acting in good faith toward the Democratic Party.

What gives him any faith the Dems won't just screw him again?

Good for him. He's not a Democrat in the first place. Unfortunately if you want to actually be considered a real chance to be President you have to join one of the two major parties.

But Sanders is the only one I can think of who has ever been popular enough to possibly change that. He should have ran Independent the first time. The Dems screwed him over anyway. He owes them nothing.

Hopefully this will strip the Dems of some voters too and teach them a lesson.

Besides, the Dems are still acting like they all had shock treatment and can't formulate a decent idea between all of them.

Bernie betrayed the Dems when he allowed the DNC to steal the nomination from him during the last runoff.

Although he seemed to have monetarily benefited from his last attempt.

Of course that is to be expected. But at least this way they have to stab him in the front instead of the back.

He's the only one who refused any SuperPAC money or big corporate donors. If you're going to accuse anyone of making money from his political run he'd have to be the last one on that list.

How is he betraying the Dems by them stealing from him, that makes no sense.

They betrayed him. There is really no other way to see that.

How does someone get two stars for saying something that ridiculous even??

Screw Party Loyalty to be able to run as "Democrat" or "Republican". Aren't they merely supposed to represent liberals / conservatives?

Well they dont even, but yeah that's their game blind subservient Party loyalty. Party's that are owned by the robberbarrons from above the top down.

He didn't betray anything

More than a year before the primary it was well known that with "super-delegates" Hillary had already won.

Bernie went along for the ride because, quite frankly, it would increase his stature. Did ANYBODY outside of Vermont know his name prior?

NOW... With all the assaults on Trump, Bernie thinks that he can translate the previously REAL grass roots good will into a serious campaign

I can't see the equation yet where this turns serious

Yay. Bernie has not given up. I am sure he did not like the scam that Hillary pulled on him with the Democrats. I will vote for him next election if he gets on the ticket. Unless of course, if a Clinton type person runs, then I will vote for the Republican who runs. I used to vote Democrat for president the majority of the time, but I am not happy with their party anymore. I voted for the best vice president this year, Trump's vice was better than Hillary's.

Bernie should have ran independent or third party, he would have destroyed either Clinton or Trump.

It is precisely what I had hoped would happen, it would have cracked the BS two party corruption extravaganza, which clearly people are sick of and that is why we ended up with Trump.

We need three parties at the very least, we are a diverse nation and our politics should reflect that.

He betrayed the dems by allowing Hillary the nomination. Bernie should have been the one to blow the lid on the whole DNC corruption. He had to have known about it!

Yes they did betray him on that I will agree.

Exactly right! Bernie had crowds of supporters that dwarfed Hillary's turnouts during the campaign. His were ALIVE too!

For a FIGHTER like Bernie Sanders to give in so easily to Hillary's wishes, was not like him at all.

I doubt that old man was running for Stature. He ran because he believed he had the right message and the right plan and that people would respond to it. He thought he had a chance to win.

He's like a hundred years old. A bit late to worry about Stature.

He knew Clinton was flawed and thought he could win over her. But the Dems screwed him out of the Primary win. I'm sure the Repubs had their propaganda wing working against him too being that he was more popular than Trump as well.

He didn't allow it. They just did it. That's how betrayal works. If you allow it then it's not betrayal. You're changing the definitions of words.

When it went down he was actually one of the first to call them on it even. But nobody listened or cared. They all just believed the Dems story until it was too late. What was he supposed to do, assassinate Hilary??

You can only do so much about it.

Bernie is further Left than most Democrats. The man is a Communist. I doubt he would have done well in mainstream America.

No, the man is a Democratic Socialist and he was doing very well with the American People in fact. Extremely well.

Bernies credibility was lost when he sided with HRC and the corrupt DNC. I don't think I'm the only one who views him in this light.

I have no reason to argue with you.

I just ask that you look at publications about 12 months prior to the D primaries. It was a done deal before it got started.

All of this is basically ancient history

Edit to add: Over time it seems more and more like his wife devastated that college and corruption was... well... let's just say it was there.

Bernie knows how to play the game

You're not alone in seeing it that way.

Meanwhile Trump joins the corrupt RNC but nobody complains because it's suits their double standard. Go figure.

It was supposed to be a done deal that Hilary was going to win also. Didn't happen though did it.
