    This is a repeat of 2016, theres no real change ahead and we’ll prepare for a high probability of a 2nd term of Trump, which is what the corporate democratic establishment, corporate media, and their donors would prefer, then transformative life changing policies for 90% of Americans

      @Comrade Kingston Honestly, I really don’t know of anyone who can’t pay for their prescriptions, rent or food,,they all have jobs. Get a job and you’ll see how you too can pay for your own stuff.

      @Marcus Aurelius We’re not going to lose the war though. There are battles fought by the working class and grassroots organizations daily. Every strike, demonstration, and local election is a step to the more perfect union we dreamt of.

      @Marcus Aurelius Yeah we have jobs and are still below the poverty line and one bad accident and we’re fucked. It’s not that we’re incompetent in any form or lazy, we are being exploited.

      @Comrade Kingston Ha, ha..what union? Hanging and collecting gov checks, get a life and a job!
      BTW, socialism will never work here in the USA so again,,,,give it up!!!!

    When asked “what would you do to convince Bernie voters to vote for you?” He answered “I would expect Bernie to tell his followers to vote for me.”
    He offered NOTHING, and expects us to fall in line the way every other moderate did when their candidate endorsed him.

    • @Ace Ha No need to question my intelligence. Please send me the link. I’m very interested to know. Its the hidden information that causing him to lose this Primary. please Share! Unless you are bluffing?? Then what does that say about Bernie?

      @Some lol player I live in IL. Me not voting wont give my states electoral to Trump. Tht was my point. But I think u should vote and be educated on representatives in Congress just as much as President if you want to see change. If you cant get anything passed because of the partisanship of the only 2 parties, it wont matter who is in the oval office. And using the reasoning that trump needs to be stopped and only Biden can do it would work, but, most people I know have a spectrum of political views. Some are more likely to vote for trump over biden when they would have voted for Warren or Sanders. Not me, personally. Dont really get the WHY myself. But dems dont seem to understand that it could happen

    • Bernie will suspend his campaign and keep all the unspent donations. It is better than working for it.

    Not voting for someone who wanted to cut social security said that he will veto Medicare For All supported awful trade agreements and supported Iraq war.

    now from Biden “i hear you”. yes, that fixes all your policy blunders.

    • @Steven Bailey I swear… I can see why you would not like Biden, but please do not vote for trump. Honestly, he’s not at all a “relatable” guy or anything else that his fans say, he is just another crazy old billionaire who throws money at his problems and the women he knows and just knows how to play to a camera and make people think he is a not corrupt politician (see “The Apprentice”). He does not care about you or me, and he didn’t do much of anything to stop Covid until a week ago and now we’re looking at a pandemic across the US. Also he is letting climate change go on unrestricted so that by the time I turn 40 (I’m 15) the world is going to be apocalyptic. Voting for him would be a huge mistake for the longevity of all of our lives, so please give me and other kids a good country to inhabit and don’t vote for trump.

      @kohl cooke I am Not voting “FOR” Trump. I would never do that. But I am not voting for Biden either. What you don’t understand is Big Money is destroying the economy, and the environment. It has nothing to do with the president under our current power structure, if nothing changes you could put anyone in who has no intention of changing the system and the result will always be the same. Biden = Trump with a nicer tone.

      Steven Bailey. Not voting for Biden means you are voting for Trump.Please don’t make that mistake. I want Bernie just as much as you (and I am Canadian) but if you and all the Bernie supporters take this approach, Trump will definitely win – and a man with Bernie’s political position will never have a shot again. If you vote for Biden, you have a hope of getting Bernie’s policies through. Trump on the other hand will be merciless to both these men. Please do the right thing.

      ​@singtweetypie Sometimes there is meaning behind how you respond to suffering. I am not going to intentionally sell myself or my country short by choosing to suffer under the hand of any politician, but if I am going to suffer, if the choice is to be stabbed or be shot, I am going to choose with my conscience. That is the only thing they cannot take away from me. Biden will re-institute the Affordable Care Act where they will force people to buy worthless policies. Biden’s family will make millions of dollars from the sell of policies with high deductibles and force people to buy them. He will do nothing else about the climate. He is a neoliberal who will spout social liberal policies to sound good while instituting conservative policies that strangle the American people. Trump will just strangle the American people and outright and lie all the way. I am sorry, but there is nothing I can do. The American people are going to suffer from a crisis of imagination. They cannot imagine a better system and fear anyone else who can.

    Makes an appeal? They are just doing what they did in 2016: “Fall in line behind US, progressives/young people.” That’s not a plea or compromise, or much of anything else. It suddenly becomes about the “moral vote” even though voting for someone to do nothing besides hold up the status quo isn’t exactly “moral vote” either. There are problems that need addressing, not glossing over.

    • @David Lloyd-Jones You do know that when Trump says “The do nothing Democrats” he’s speaking about centrists that just want to keep the status quo, right? All you do is HIDE and stay QUIET during elections because you’re always chasing that right-wing vote. Guess what, now you LOST all liberals by pulling in 2020 the same nonsense you did in 2016. Nobody wants your center-right corporate candidate except yourselves. Republicans don’t want him because they blame his administration for globalism, and all the bad deals America got, Liberals don’t want him because he ignores their interests. Good luck carrying Biden to the White House on your own, and picking up the slack from all the Liberals YOU LOST, who were the only ones debating right wingers and encouraging the young to vote. After primaries, many Liberals are going to outright LEAVE your garbage center-right party, so you can’t pull that “Fall in line” nonsense, the same way you can’t tell people from other parties to “Fall in line”. You’re going to be ALONE carrying Biden, so you better get to WORK and do everything you erroneously assumed Liberals were going to do for you indefinitely while you stayed quiet in the background.

    • @jones : Yeah, it’s always vote against the BIG EVIL isn’t it? . . . But I’m done with that. I don’t ask for perfection, but we need a candidate that rises to the level of “good” and that is NOT Lieden. And for all the people who put “beating Trump” as their highest priority, maybe they should have made sure we had a good candidate to get behind.

      @Dusk Dawg
      Sorry, anonymous Dawg, I don’t know any of those things you say I do.
      I think you’re playing silly changes on categories that only exist in your own head and don’t have too much to do with the real world.
      The simple fact is A Biden Presidency will mean different and better judges, administrators, expenditures, and laws on the books. There will be small and continual improvements everywhere.
      Another Trump Administration would mean a continuation of the daily meanness, cruelty, lies, corruption and waste.
      Try looking at reality for a change. Stop repeating the bong-wong-dong rattling around between your ears, OK?

    • @jones I appreciate what you’re trying to do and know you want Trump gone . I do too but the candidate we are likely to have isn’t good enough for people to get behind without fundamentally changing his ways.

      I played the game you want me to play in 2016 and voted for Hillary. My ONE vote did not matter whatsoever. Even if you can sway me you need to sway a lot of other people. But it’s Biden really that needs to actually unify everyone. If he doesn’t he’ll lose. I believe he will fail to do it.

      There is no denying it…Biden has his work cut out for him. Voting for the lesser of two evils never gets us anything but evil. If Biden supporters force him to change he will. He won’t listen to a Bernie support like me.

    If only we had some indication from four years ago about how this is going to end. #DemExit #VoteBlueNoMatterWhoDIES

    • just vote another party than Trump and Biden

    • @Furkan Sahin Green party is good. I stand behind my position that beating Trump is task number one. If you cannot bring yourself to do that, DON’T vote for Trump. At least vote for something you believe in and make a statement. AOC 2024. Good Comment, Furkan. Thanks.

    • @jones Yes but maybe Tulsi or Yang are making a new party?
      yes, rather green than Trump than Biden 100% I agree
      but they are not much difference I would rather have Tulsi or Yang

    • @jones i live in Denmark 😀

    • @Furkan Sahin Good point, but again, but Yang or Tulsi are not realistic contenders. Yang backed Biden and he broke my heart. But It looks like Biden is it, like it or not. I supported Bernie and still do, but it looks like it is over for him. There is still a chance, and this virus shows how bad Trump is and how much we need Bernie’s health care.

      I know someone in Denmark, and I appreciate your participation. As you know, the USA is in trouble and we need all the friends we can get. My hope at this point is that if we cannot get Bernie the nomination, that maybe he will run anyway, but then Trump will win. But at least we have made a statement.

      If we all vote for Biden and he loses, then I am the jerk for asking these young people to vote for him. But I believe in the long shots, and Bernie still has a very slim chance. Yang and Tulsi do not. Either way, I think we should learn from our mistakes and start immediately to educate America to get ready for AOC in 2024. There is some talk that the DNC will pull a fast one at the convention, but that seems extremely unlikely . . . but the theory is they will sideline biden and come up with someone else.

      I would pray for it to happen and for it to be Adam Schiff . . . . who could destroy Trump. But Bernie is a lost opportunity, a tragic one. It is a heartbreaker for sure, and America has nobody but ourselves to blame.
      Namaste, my friend. I wish you could vote here.

      @Dirtrock1252 ya. That’s the ‘or bust’ part. Lol. If everyone wanted to beat trump why not line up behind Sanders to beat him? Two way street. Obviously Clinton didnt have the electability everyone said she did. But MAAAYBE the dems are right about Biden this time? Probably not lol

    I’ll vote for Biden the day that my brothers in arms who died in Iraq and Afghanistan are miraculously ressurected.

    • Then ask the Orange Orangatan to resurrect them. Get ready for war with and try resurrecting because with Republican war mongerers. DEFENSE CONTRACTORS WILL MONEY AT EXPENSE OF MORE LIVES.

      But in all fairness, what did they die for? Did Iraq have WMD? Was it Afghanistan that caused 9/11? What was Libya’s crime?

      Bernie cancelled his ads. Trump wants to be President for life. The GOP will help. If we get to vote, the choice is Biden for 4 years or Trump for life.

    • @Rusty Writer My vote is earned not assumed. Biden can pander to moderates or progressives. He chose moderates. I’ll be voting third party president and maybe down ballot Democrats.
