The DNC, the corporate media, and establishment Dem pols keep saying that a progressive candidate for prez can't win, but that's a shit-eating lie and they all know it. The facts are that they were scared shitless of Bernie and knew that if they didn't stop him from the nomination he would have won last time and this time in landslides. They know that Biden only won, barely, because a majority of voters were just sick enough of Trump to tolerate Biden. When they say Bernie couldn't have won, I shoot back " Then maybe we should finally just prove it by allowing a progressive to get the nomination and participate in the debates for the general election". How can any of the centrists know that when the Dems have not had a progressive candidate since McGovern in 1972? I would bet my life on it that if allowed to participate in those debates and wipe the floor with the neoliberal policies of any Repub, the voters would respond and we'd have turnout of 80% or more of eligible voters. But my guess is that if a progressive did get the nomination by some miracle, the corporate media would ignore them as much as possible except for smears and the debate commission, run by the heads of both parties, would collude with the Repub candidate to boycott the debates.
It's disappointing to find out how many stupid MFers call themselves Americans.
They think Trump did a good job with Covid because he said he did a good job with Covid.
We have 4.25% of the worlds population with 25% of all the deaths, yet Trump did a good job, because he said he did a good job.
He's should be charged with a quarter million negligent homicide deaths at the minimum.
He declared biological warfare on America, since this is an unreasonable thing to do, who had enough of a reason for this to make Trumps choices reasonable to Trump?
We have candidates for sure... yes we do.
