I had myself a maniacal chuckle today.

Can you imagine the hysteria when Bernie runs away with the nomination next year and they are unable to rig the primary because he is too popular?
That’s not the hilarious part.
Now imagine the sweet tears of HILbilly butt-hurt when SV’s orc-bots all discover that THEY HAVE TO SWEAR A LOYALTY OATH TO
OMG! That still cracks me up. Any bets on how fast Sauron does away with the loyalty oath over there?

No way I’d take that bet. If Bernie gets the nomination sewed up, I see three possibilities. One, they actually enforce the Vote Blue No Matter Who oath and then wait for Trump to win so they can say I Told You So. After Bernie crushes Trump in the Electoral College, mysterious viruses will overwhelm the site and Sauron will just allow it to die.
Two, they won’t allow Trump supporters but they will encourage support for Daddy Starbucks or some other multibillionaire independent to Save the Nation from Socialism.
Three, Bernie wins the nomination and Sauron changes the name of the site to Thirdwaywhine.com, er, RealDemocrats.com, no socialists allowed.

I would be most amused, but the corruption could create entirely different scenarios.

Ya know, when Bernie is in there, it’s a completely different ball game. It’s time to take care of the people, not the corporations. It’s time these conglomerates pay their fair share, and more.
I strongly feel once everyone settles down from the shock, and see how much better life can really be, the attitudes of many that are currently divided, might just come around to democratic socialism.
Yeah, one can hope, eh?
Otherwise, I see any of the above happening.
In order for this to succeed, this must be a grass roots effort like no one has ever seen before. I’d love to see 75% participation this time around. If that happens, its all in the bag.
I will be a Bernie supporter FOREVER. This whole thing with Bernie and his people oriented policies were meant to be introduced in this day and age!! Many have tried and failed in the past. Succeeding was almost impossible. It's kind of a gimme in today's corrupt 2 party system that you have to work within. Just look how things have changed in the past 8 years from Bernie's policies. It was meant to be. Wait it out. Change will come. Thank you Bernie for all you've done. You are a truly amazing person.

What everybody else just said. Yearning further, I’d also look forward to a deliciously satisfying turn of events whereby erstwhile limousine liberals, having lost hegemony in the party, are pressured to cast their lot with Bernie Sanders and other progressive populists because “they’ll have no other place to go”.
Fiendishly satisfying irony, that.
