Bernie is Wrong

18 11 2016

“…Facts are facts.  When you lose the White House to the least popular candidate in the history of America, when you lose the Senate, when you lose the House and when two-thirds of governors in this country are Republican, it is time for a new direction for the Democratic party!”

That’s Bernie Sanders the other day.  Remember him?  He lost his macho for quite some time while he was trying to enthusiastically back Clinton, and though he’s back he’s having a hard time rising to the real challenge of his own fading years.  Remember when he use to take pride in being an Independent and a Socialist and demanding that the new politics be bottom up not top down?

It’s not the “Direction” of the Democratic Party that needs to change.   It’s the whole party — it’s leaders, structure, methods, controls and most of all financing.  The old adage “follow the money” applies!

If that were to happen it would no longer be the Democratic Party as we have known it.  But those who control it are not going to give it up…they in fact specialize in rhetorical deceit, political deception, and financial corruption.  That is all they know.   That is all they are school in.   That is how they all came to and have kept power and personal privilege, wealth, and aggrandizement.   They are all creatures of the Washington swamp.   That is how they have brought America to the current dastardly state of affairs, to the current national nervous breakdown.

Only a complete take-over of the party by the grassroots — which means a historical purge of nearly all of the current leaders and money men — will do.

So where are you Bernie when we really need you?
