Isn't that due to the Gov of Ohio asking for all public events to be suspended?

Right now he could have all sorts of reasons for that not directly related to near-term plans to suspend his campaign.

He is out of time. He needs to accept that people have rejected the bros, and reject them as well. Rebuilding the movement without them will take a few years, but that is preferable to continuing the movement in its current sick state. People want change, just not from them., and that aversion is strong enough to decide people's candidates. It's time for Bernie to face that.

This is such utter nonsense that you've swallowed hook, line, and sinker.

Most Americans are such farking sheep.  Which is why we can't have nice things that other nations have, like healthcare, or affordable education- because all someone has to do is tell idiots that someone is their enemy and they'll gladly throw their own best interests under the bus.

The mythical "Bros" will always be with us, always showing up to ruin everyone's support for anything and everything progressive.
Sure, that comfortable centrist likes that progressive candidate, they like some of his or her ideas. But is he/she really electible? And have you *SEEN* the supporters?

I just wonder what they'll be called when moderates are ass-pulling excuses not to vote for AOC.

AOC has a bright future in American politics. She has years ahead of her in Congress. Will she use those years to hone her skills and build a coalition or will she squander them by yelling at clouds like Bernie?

I hope for her and the future of our country she becomes a leader in Congress and a future Speaker or Secretary of "fill in the blank" or Vice President or even President. She won't do that following in Bernie's shoes.

TIL;

When a slim plurality of registered democrats supported Bernie, he was divisive and tearing the party apart.
Now that a slim plurality of registered democrats are supporting Biden, that's a unified party that has left Bernie behind.

Bernie leading national polls with heavy independent support a few weeks ago "meant nothing because soshulism" but somehow Biden with 55% of 30% of of the electorate is a national mandate in favor of neoliberal moderates.

American progressivism has a long, storied history of getting sabotaged by external forces both foreign and domestic.  The Wobblies in the 20s, the Strike Wave in the 40s, the counter-culture movement in the 60s.

When AOC runs for president in the next decade, expect similar shenanigans.

I voted for Sanders today.

Because I believe deep down that we all deserve the right to healthcare. That we need more power distribution away from Billionaires and back into the hands of the people.

During the economic crash of 2008 I left college with no prospects. No opportunities and just struggling to even make it. Yes. Things are better now, but I remember one time I was so sick that I might die. I had pneumonia. I couldn't afford to go to the doctor and I missed so much work I lost my job in an instant. This was, of course, during a time when jobs were not plentiful and you could lose your job for no reason at all.

I see the dissolution of unions based off of Republicans and Democratic enablers. I see the end of entitlements that we so desperately want and all for the interest of the greedy.

I cannot begin to describe the level of economic depravity and shame it feels like living in poverty. Barely having anything and then worrying you could die because you cant go to the doctor. I climbed out of that hole. Incrementalism didnt save my ass for the 2 goddamned years I was struggling.

I cannot imagine another person ever living like that again. I cannot, in good conciousness, vote for someone like Biden and any politician again that does not offer bold change. America is farking broken and it has been for quite some time. If you are thriving it's because you dont see what's going on around you. You live in the times of moderation and hesitation.

But I hope that would explain why I've been arguing and fighting so hard for Bernie Sanders. You can rewrite Joe Bidens record to make him sound glamorous for the general election. He is exactly who he is.

Anyway. That's my story.

That was a damn good article. Thanks, Subby. This part in particular resonated with me:

In general, Sanders should do a better job talking up all of the bills he's authored and worked on with other Democrats and Republicans over his decades in Washington, even if they didn't pass. He should say, in fact, that he's spent nearly 30 years pushing things no one thought were possible but that Democrats can now achieve if they defeat Trump and work together.


One of the popular attacks against Bernie is that he doesn't have a history of legislative victories. It makes it sound like he's spent his time in Washington doing nothing, which is obviously not true. He's been slowly and steadily chipping away at the arguments against progressive ideals. And now here we are...openly discussing things like Medicare For All, which a decade ago would've seemed like a pipe dream. At least now it seems possible, and he has a lot to do with that.

There's an old analogy that a lot of coaches use (I can't remember the exact wording), but it goes something like this:

'It's not the final swing of the axe that brings down the tree, it's all the swings that came before it.'

That's the kind of message he needs to lean into.

"The most generous explanation for the DCCC's harsh attack on Moser is that the party believes she can't win the general election, so it is trying to block her from winning the primary. 'I think the DCCC believes they'll struggle to win in November with Moser,' tweeted Walker Agner Jr., an observation that was retweeted by the DCCC's Kelly.

[...]

But in 2006, the last time Democrats were washed into the House on a blue wave, the DCCC also worked against a handful of candidates it believed couldn't win the general election. When they won their primaries, the DCCC walked away, declaring the races un-winnable.

They won anyway."

There's this idea that the super-rich are just like us and know exactly what it's like to walk a mile in our shoes, like how hard it is working without sufficient health benefits, if they even have them... even though the super-rich aren't above slashing or outright abolishing such benefits if it means saving themselves a couple extra pennies.

Bernie Sanders is not a charismatic candidate.  His ideas on the other hand, when properly packaged, are very attractive.

Had Bernie stepped aside and not ran, but rather found so.eone younger and more attractive to endorse, who shared his ideas, that person would be running away with the nomination and killing Trump in the polls.

As it is, no such candidate, had he/she existed in this campaign, could have gotten any oxygen to run without the Bernie cultist undermining them, which is why no one stepped up for the spot.

Make no mistake, democratic socialism is the future of the democrat party, but that future can not start until Bernie dies and his cultist learn to grow the fark up and how to make allies and communicate their ideas without talking down to people like they are idiots.
