The NYT story about the Democratic establishment’s attempts to stop Sanders [is making] my blood [boil] over...

It’s insanely telling that the people featured in this story—who call themselves “progressives,” despite being wedded to deeply middle-of-the-road centrist policies—are so threatened by a candidate who, after being screwed by them in 2016, isn’t inclined to make concessions to the vast,useless apparatus of consultants and donors that they represent.Of course they want to stop Sanders.He’s sworn off big money, has actual progressive policy ideas, and is thumbing his nose at scolds like Tanden and her cronies! If the voters choose Bernie, he should be the nominee. End of story. If you’re the kind of person who would tack a “but,” onto the end of that sentence, you’re probably more wedded to rewriting the perceived wrongs of 2016 than actually taking back the White House in 2020.

Right on! We need someone to come in to bring back Democracy (I know, there are those who will tell me we never had a Democracy, but the Democratic Republic, yet that was much closer to what we have now.

Of the candidates presently campaigning we have many arm wavers and droppers of words such as "single-payer", "Medicare for all", anti-Trump, etc., and doubling down on the policies in place now. The bottom line on that is they are content with merely moving on without Trump which leaves nothing for the 99% who are struggling, an infrastructure which is collapsing, more incarcerations the private prison industry, and more beggars with their hands out while they occupy their seats in Congress so they can continue the downward spiral our nation has been in.

That said, a good barometer of who NOT to vote for would be if the DNC is backing them or not attempting to block them run as fast as you can.

That leaves only two candidates who the DNC sees as actually working to make changes and who have the stamina to do so. Those two are Bernie Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard. Most know of Sanders and what he is for, but few have any knowledge of Gabbard who actually showed her strength by resigning as Vice-Chair of the DNC in 2016 because of how they were illegally working against Sanders. That showed a strength of character as most would have remained still and simply moved up to be Chair of the clown show. She stood up for what is right rather than self-rewards. She is also for no more regimes change illegal invasions, using the $Trillions saved and investing in infrastructure, education, healthcare, a more positive foreign relations, in other words making our nation stronger rather than weaker as a bully is typically viewed.

That said we need change, not simply from Trump, but from the policies of Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan. Following the DNC choices would merely be following in the footsteps of those in our recent past. We need change, NOW.
