<blockquote>They are pouring their hope into uncertain vessels, and surely know it. Bernie Sanders is an actual radical: He would fundamentally change an economic system that imperfectly but for two centuries made America the wealthiest country in the history of the world. In the young his support is understandable: They have never been taught anything good about capitalism and in their lifetimes have seen it do nothing—nothing—to protect its own reputation.</blockquote>

BTW – I know he might want to do that … but …. we all know that without ‘we the people’ fully supporting him (not just through the election, but after the election), without The Senate, without Congress … well just how much power will he have – and what exactly will he be able to do ?
Way back last year ... ok, December 15th <a href="http://beyondbridges.net/2015/12/couped-up-in-coups/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">I wrote this piece</a>. It was primarily about the ongoing assassination attempt of Corbyn in the UK - initially by 'his own' ... though I wouldn't exactly call Tony Bliar (sic) and Mendelson 'his own' - but they are at least <strong>meant</strong> to be in the same party. Anyway to my point, I wrote ...
Bernie doesn’t have it quite as bad here in the USA, since he hasn’t yet got to that dominant position of ‘numero uno’.
Well how fast does time move. Here we are just 5 weeks later and we have the New York Times weighing in. Notice – liberal pundits ganging up against Bernie. That’s right – vote for BAU, because otherwise the status quo might change. And we do not want that do we ?
In recent weeks, major liberal pundits are putting in overtime to freshen their case against Bernie Sanders, urging citizen’s to ignore their conscience and quit screwing with the interests of the moneyed elite.
The New York Times reports “alarmed Hillary Clinton supporters” are warning Sanders “would be an electoral disaster who would frighten swing voters and send Democrats in tight congressional and governor’s races to defeat.” Supporters cast Sanders as “unelectable” and attempt to present him as the Republicans’ favored nominee because super political action committees run by operatives like Karl Rove would supposedly prefer to see the Republican nominee run against Sanders.
