The Primary is for Vetting... and some facts speak for themselves



In any other year that would disqualify him immediately, right? What about this year?

Just above the other Mayor in the race.

2. yeah... how's this.

 

1 out of 10 Sanders supporters either didn't vote for Hillary or sat out the 2016 election. 70,000 votes or so across 3 states was Trump's electoral margin of victory. If just a handful more of Sanders supporters had acted like Democrats, we wouldn't know who Kavanaugh is.

9. Maybe if some Democrats had not so viciously attacked

 

People who voted for Bernie in the primary, they would not have fallen into Putin's divide and conquor trap.

And promoting divisiveness among Democratic voters, is still a Putin trap waiting to be sprung.

17. Well, browbeating or, worse, attacking them endlessly isn't

 

likely to get their vote in the primary or, more importantly, the GE. Especially those who believe Sanders has the best chance of beating tRump as some polls show and many of his supporters believe. I am one who thinks Sanders would do best one-on-one against tRump. I like Warren best and prefer her, but I also think Sanders has a better chance against tRump.

8. If Sanders is our nominee, I think there will be major issues when his past is brought up. It will

 

make the swift-boating of Kerry look like child's play, and Sanders better be prepared for it, unlike the interview he gave to the NY Daily News:

https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/transcript-bernie-sanders-meets-news-editorial-board-article-1.2588306

According to the latest polls, trump favorability is at 49%

Our nominee had better be a strong candidate to go against that

11. Fact, it wasn't Putin's or Russia's communism

 

Back in the dustbowl, my father's uncles went to California to pick grapes and were chased out. They returned to Oklahoma, a big gray cloud of dust, and joined the communist party. A lot of people were members of the communist party back then, because capitalism had so destroyed the economy and the environment. Much like it's doing today.

12. The presidential candidate he was an elector for praised the Soviet Union

 

He also sided with Iran over the hostage crisis.

And Sanders stood as an elector for that Soviet Communist.

15. I won't take your word for it

 

Do you have links? And how old is this information?

Besides, it wasn't Stalin's or even China's communism.

My great uncles would probably have voted for Bernie because with dust farms and no jobs, they knew first hand how awful capitalism makes the world.
