Response to question everything (Original post)

4. We don't have civil war. We may have a splinter faction

 

AND we have a very large and cohesive force for liberal progressive government formed by all the other Democratic factions.

In an unstable era when many elections are won by very narrow margins, the danger we DO face is that, even though almost all of us will support our nominee, a small splinter faction could conceivably once again throw power to the increasingly authoritarian, white nationalist and theorcratic forces behind the Republicans. And we might not get another chance to save our democracy.

In this very dangerous time, third party/dissident voting is an indulgence that could literally blight, even destroy, the futures of almost all of us. Our state and federal governments will be controlled by either Democrats determined to advance the wellbeing of all or dangerously anti-democracy, increasingly white nationalist Republicans. That is the only choice.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
