Progressive Democrats 14

This man is no socialist. He is no communist. He is a progressive. Sadly, his party didn't back him to the hilt. Had they done so then perhaps the United States would not now be facing a President Elect who's policies are at best a muddle, a man way over his head, a man who's self deception will possibly lead the greatest power the world has ever seen alarmingly close to fascism. Bernie Sanders is the antidote to that development. He is thankfully not alone. 




"Finally, let us understand that when we stand together, we will always win. When men and women stand together for justice, we win. When black, white and Hispanic people stand together for justice, we win."

I am one who felt the Bern. When he didn't get nominated, I supported Clinton because even though I feel that she's more a moderate (old school) Republican than a progressive Democrat, I thought that she'd be a far better bet for the U.S. than that monstrosity that we have in office instead.
I'm literally having nightmares about the fate of this country and about marginalized people. Sometimes I think we'd be better off if the asteroid would just hit and get things over with.

He has none of the passion of a Hitler or Mussolini, none of Pinochet's conviction yet he is attracting fascists. Clinton would most definitely have been better. At least her policies recognised climate change whereas Trump denies them.

At the very least, she isn't an utter megalomaniac. Trump is that and worse, but I think that what is worse yet are those who are pulling his strings. He isn't intelligent enough to make a go of this thing on his own. I may joke about these asshats, but honestly, I've never been quite so nervous for the fate of my country.

I agree. It is those pulling the strings, along with the even further far right, that concern me. Trump may be put off his stroke when he points his finger and says to those goons "you're fired" when he discovers those goons cannot be fired.
