      It seems as if the collective minds of a lot of people fail to recognize the tinkering and often times outright theft that occurred during the 2016 primaries.

      I think if we get a good progressive to run they will be kneecapped.  They got away with it before and I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t do it again.

      We’ve got NY February 4th and CA March 3rd – the primaries will be decided by March 3rd.

      CA is going to dictate this thing, we need to be vigilant they don’t hose us again.

      What do you think?

      I am not a Democrat, I don’t care about that Party, and I will vote against a corporate Democrat candidate, and counsel others to do the same.  I don’t know what else is possible, because the DNC is pretty up front about being a private organization, naming the candidate it wants, and that the primaries are just money-gathering pep rallies.

        A 3rd party nominee probably doesn’t stand a chance, so if someone like Sanders gets bagged again the whole thing is futile.

        Perhaps that’s the way it’s always been – makes sense.

        Oh well, back to the scotch.

      We make it clear that we cannot pull the lever for a candidate imposed by the donor class.

      We make it clear that we are working class Americans and Russia has nothing to do with our crusade for representative democracy.

      That is all we can do for now.

      Follow them around and don’t ever let them do a live interview uninterrupted?

      All out riot at the convention?

      Yellow vests?

      Scream loud, long and often. Hit as many media outlets as you can. Demand recounts. Demand exit polling. Demand paper ballots.

      pretty much the same things we’ve been doing.

      the corrupt “Democratic” (ha!) party would rather have Trump elected than ANY Progressive, but especially not Bernie. That’s a fact. They hate Progressives. So purged voter rolls, shredded provisional ballots, closed polling places, hacked EVOTING machines, etc…is a given. They will do all of that and more.

      I DemExited. I will never vote for anyone in that corrupt party again. I’ll vote Green Party before I vote for Biden or Warren or Kamala or Booker. I would think about Ojeda…he voted for Trump and has never voted for a Democrat for President…that is extremely worrisome to me, but I LOVE his honesty and spunk and his support of Unions.

      Vote Green Party if they screw us over again. They have to know we’re not going to be their abused and battered constituents ever again. They either let the people choose their President or they can eff off.

      we should focus our anger onto Trump and also a foreign country that had nothing to do with it and then remain in this hopelessly corrupt party that is designed to and just did, yet again, hose the left.

      No one knows the future. Not you. Not I. We don’t know what will happen in the 2020 primaries. Nothing is pre-ordained, and people(not you, definitely) who say they know what is going to happen are full of mental excrement at this point in time.

      What we can do is try. Refusing to try because one convinces oneself that one knows the future is an arrogant, lazy, cop-out, IMO.

      If the DNC rigs things again, well, I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it, but I recommend something like the French yellow vest movement. I have always wanted to set a luxury car on fire. The worst I’ve done so far is to back my steel-bumpered truck into a Porsche. Gods, that felt good! Statute of limitations long expired.
