Why not go Full Socialist with Bernie Sanders?
Grumbling lefties are complaining that Alinsky Gal Hillary Clinton just isn't far enough to the left to suit them. Instead they're cheering on a run by Elizabeth Warren whose political career consisted of
1. Being a high-paid Obama government crony
2. Winning a senate race in one of the most liberal states in the country
They would have a better shot at running Bill de Blasio for president. At least he can plausibly deliver a speech without sounding like a liberal college professor... which is exactly what Elizabeth Warren is.
But progressives don't have to settle for moderate Communists like Bill de Blasio and Elizabeth "You Didn't Build That, the Collective Did" Warren. Why not go Full Socialist with Bernie Sanders?
Bernie Sanders is a Socialist independent who caucuses with the Dems. Considering how thoroughly the left has moved the Democratic Party to the left, he could just make the full switch.
“That is honestly not me,” he continued. “Anyone who really, really wants to be president is slightly crazy because this is an unbelievably difficult job given the crises that this country faces today.”
Still, Sanders says he is willing to consider making a run if no one else with progressive views similar to his ends up taking the plunge.
It is essential, he said, to have someone in the 2016 presidential campaign who is willing to take on Wall Street, address the “collapse” of the middle class, tackle the spread of poverty and fiercely oppose cuts to Social Security and Medicare.
Also, addressing global warming needs to be a top priority, not an afterthought, Sanders said.
“Under normal times, it’s fine, you have a moderate Democrat running, a moderate Republican running,” Sanders said. “These are not normal times. The United States right now is in the middle of a severe crisis and you have to call it what it is.”
These aren't normal times. We've got a Socialist in the White Houses who refuses to use the "S" word. We've got a college professor who claims to be a Cherokee when she isn't and won't admit that she's a Socialist when she is.
Bernie Sanders is at least completely open about being a Socialist. Why vote for lying Socialists like Elizabeth Warren, when you can vote for an honest Socialist like Bernie Sanders?
If you're worried that Bernie Sanders won't go around saying crazy things just like Elizabeth Warren... worry not.
The climate change debate "reminds me in some ways of the debate taking place in this country and around the world in the late 1930s," Sanders said during a Senate hearing on the Environmental Protection Agency's 2011 budget
"And during that period with Nazism and fascism growing -- a real danger to the United States and Democratic countries all over the world -- there were people in this Congress, in the British parliament saying, 'don't worry! Hitler is not real! It'll disappear! We don't have to be prepared to take it on.'"
Your move, Warren.
