Sanders, Biden and the Electability Scam; Sanders is the Only Electable Democrat

Only Bernie Sanders offers programs big enough to convince a small portion of Trump’s whites to choose saving their sick mother over stoking their sense of racial superiority.”

Joe’s corpse-like Miami performance should have interred him to the presidential history graveyard. Kamala gutted Joe for his opposition to school desegregation, but the stake missed his supremacist heart, leaving Biden gasping but un-dead. Reuters poll conducted after the Miami debacle showed Biden dropping 8% among Dems. Electability is Sanders’ greatest asset. Trump must duplicate the GOP’s larger Black voter suppression schemes. Polls show Trump will do better in MI and WI this time; his supporters like his racism. If a few blue collar whites in 3 states can be peeled away, Trump is doomed. Sanders is the only candidate that can do it.

I'm not bothering to read this Op Ed as the author is 150% correct. All the data for years completely supports the author. OK, I read it, but I didn't need to.

I'm reconsidering Bernie, at least for the primary (as I did in 2016, before voting for Stein in the general). BAR provides further credence. Sanders has been nothing if not consistent. I have little hope that polity will solve this. Empire's collapse is essential to rein in US imperialism. Preparing for that is the work of Now.

Glen Ford is always worth reading. Sanders has the best policies. I sure wish he'd stop calling himself a socialist when he's really just a social democrat (according to Noam Chomsky, Cornel West and many others).

Don, I have thought that for a very long time. Could you (at least) send him a letter to that effect, or (at best) write an article along those lines and then I will not only send it to him but blast it all over Bernie Facebook groups, please? What you are saying could make the difference in winning or losing.

Of course, our opponents will exploit any and all of the slightest semantic nuances of the word "socialist." I run into this all the time in my conversations about politics in my own gallery in Santa Fe. I see that as a small notch above idiocy.

Stephen, I already have written an article about why Sanders should stop calling himself a socialist: Socialism, even democratic socialism, is quite different from progressivism: click here (Something is wrong with OpEdNews' editing controls, so I couldn't format the links above correctly.)

Thank you.


Your article is almost a year old. It should be updated, and given a title focused on what we agree on. For people at his Original Sanders Institute, they may have time to only read the title and yours from last August is just not going to snag their attention. You might want to join that group. Not real active, but the brass are all members.

Thanks, Steven. I've made a new version with more recent references and context:

Bernie Sanders, please stop calling yourself a socialist. You're a social democrat!

Great. You republished it, tout suite!


That is what you need to do and then send it to him and post the hell out of it on Facebook.


Are you on Facebook? The Bernie groups are very fertile ground for such efforts.

Sanders is the Only Electable Democrat

You got that right. Just like in 2016.

So we need to brace ourselves to be re-trumped, because the DNC will not allow Bernie to be the nominee, again.

trump, knowing he must win to avoid prosecution for obstruction, will be absolutely ruthless in order to save his a$$.

And the spineless Dems will bring a water pistol to a nuclear war, as always.

It's Bernie or Bust.

While I agree Bernie could beat Trump, as he could have in 2016, the DNC and the stodgy mindset of their leaders will throw out either a Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren to be annihilated by Trump. Then they can go back blaming Russia or whomever else and we will have another four years of investigations and $30 Million more wasted on nonsense when it is known the only foreign nation that interferes with, nay controls, our elections is Israel.

I also feel Tulsi Gabbard would do an excellent job of dismantling Trump in a debate. Her composure and deep thinking would baffle the bully. She also has attributes that make her a much better candidate than either Harris or Warren and is the major reason she is being smeared and silenced by the establishment propagandists.

That said a Sanders/Gabbard ticket could be a "winner" for 12 years, 4 of Sanders as President followed by 8 of Gabbard. I believe Sanders could only stand the pressure for 4 years.
