a recipe for disaster on a global scale!
“About the only way Democrats could lose their 2018 momentum in 2020 is to return to the same old neoliberal, corporate-friendly policies that lost them the election in 2016.”
Which is why they’re pursuing this very course!
Warren x Warren x Warren (Warren cubed) still < Bernie
Warren’s not acceptable to me. Reasons TNTC (too numerous to count)
Instead, let us wrest the wheel of the ship of state from these pusillanimous
pus sy-footers, and save ourselves from being blown into the fast approaching
leeward shore, with its fearsome shoals that can tear out a ship’s bottom in
moments… sending us all to Davy Jones’ Locker!

can keep pushing and shilling for the Democrats. The DNC has quadrupled down on neutering progressives and enacting Third Way legislation.

He must feel that it is possible to convince Dem primary voters to vote for a progressive candidate. He must feel that GOP primary voters are not open to that kind of idea. I’ll give the DP (more accurately their primary voters) that much credit.
Is Warren progressive enough to win my vote if Bernie does not win the DP nomination? Probably but not certainly. Getting rid of the ‘pathological liar” in the White House is important.
When you think you have no choice but to start a war, think again. Wars promise to be quick, clean and decisive. Wars lie. They cause more problems than they solve, they just won't tell you that beforehand.

they much prefer Trump wins in 2020 rather than Bernie or Tulsi. They’re saying it LOUD AND CLEAR…all we have to do is listen.
How much more proof do we need that the corrupt “Democratic” party has no intentions of changing a damn thing? They do not give two hoots what we, the peasants, want.
We NEED A NEW PROGRESSIVE PARTY and Bernie is the ONLY candidate who could take that party to the White House.

but this has been happening since the DNC became the wholly owned subsidiary of the Clintons. But they were correct that progressives have nowhere else to go(atleast for 90% fall-in-line type)
Never expect different result by following the previous steps

Sadly, I am now very much against the Obama-type method of so called incremental change.
In many ways, some laws were better off left alone, while in many cases there are quite a bit of issues that can be solved had the President been enforcing the laws currently in the books.
Basically, they should have been doing their job, particularly in regards to monopolies, trademarks, and many other laws that could have kept us from the brink.
The problem with someone like Obama, is that he basically “Protects a small aspect of a law” to say “See, we’ve done something for you” while trying to obfuscate from all the crap that is passed and given to the sharks underneath.
This is the case with many things like Banking regulation, giveaways to Corporations, the Environment(he actually drilled more than Bush), and even healthcare.
I would have loved to say “One Step-Forward / Two Steps Back” but the way they are doing it, is multiple steps backwards, while looking to the front with a condescending look to the left.
