So Sanders Should Fold Now, You Say?
I saw the tweets of faux compassion last night. Awww. What a rough night for Sanders they said. Really, you should ask Sanders to stop the campaign and join us in unity. We can defeat Trump together. Honestly. We’d love to have you join us in our fight against Trump. Now, don’t you worry that our leader Biden represents no hope, no change. Just join us, for Trump is the problem. If we could just work together to get rid of Trump, we will have rainbows and sunshine. It would be so beautiful!
Nevermind that Biden, with 8 years in the White House with Obama, and decades in Congress, has made enormous contributions to the conditions that gave us Trump. Never you mind that while Biden and Obama were in office, Democrats lost 1000 seats in statehouses, governors mansions, and Congress.
They keep telling us that Trump is the problem. No he’s not. Trump is a symptom of a much deeper problem. An inability for the elite in American politics to think of anyone but themselves.
When the people voted in 2016, they wanted change. They got it with Trump. It might not have been the change they wanted, but they wanted someone to break the system and got Trump. We could have had that with Sanders, but he was derailed by Hillary Clinton and her enormous network of political and media friends. The voters saw through Hillary. They did not see her as an agent of change. Trump, for all his faults, is an agent of change.

I see one more wealthy influence on the government, serving no one but himself. That relationship, I have money, therefore, I have influence, and I can indulge myself at taxpayers’ expense, epitomizes Trump to me. That is why I support Bernie Sanders.
I see Joe Biden as the other side of the same coin with Trump. I see his family riding on his family name. As a very experienced and influential politician, Joe Biden’s sons can use their father’s influence to make money. It is a wonder why the son of a vice president can get a plush job in a foreign corporation that mines natural gas, for $50,000 a month. Most people are lucky to make that kind of money in a…
