Today I’m reading, “Bernie Sanders’ Endgame Is Increasingly Bewildering To Team Clinton”: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/bernie-sanders-convention_us_5773f0f4e4b0352fed3e97f7?section=
So the “moderate” centrist DC Establishment Hillary Clinton, with the Wall Street contributions, are wanting Bernie to end his candidacy before the Democratic Convention delegates vote; “But as time has passed and the party’s convention nears, supporters of Hillary Clinton really want to know what Sanders’ endgame actually is?”
Bernie’s endgame is complex; Hillary wouldn’t understand.
Actually, Hillary is neither liberal nor conservative politically, she is a “moderate”, centrist Republican Lite Democrat, or in simple words, Hillary is a “Neither-Nor”.
Hillary is a female, but she is a “macho” female. As a Senator in 2002, she voted for the PNAC and Republican W. Bush Iraq Invasion Resolution, with other Republican Senators; and recently, in response to the Obama Peace Treaty with Iran, Hillary said she could accept it, but when she is President she “will not take off the table, attacking Iran.” Hillary is a hawk! Holy crap!
Bernie’s whole purpose in running was to present a liberal progressive agenda candidate for Democratic voters. Bernie did a bizarre thing; he refused contributions from huge corporate entities, and ask for small donations from liberal progressive working Middle Class and Poor voters. And for that, Bernie won the confidence of liberal progressive Democrats, millions of votes of liberal progressive Democrats, and actually beat Hillary in a number of state primaries.
And as “presumptive loser” of the Democratic Primary, Bernie doesn’t want to be President Hillary Clinton’s Secretary of State . . . or her Vice President . . . or anything, for his self.
What Bernie would like and intends to fight for in the Democratic Party Convention, is the liberal progressive Agenda that he represents.
Bernie wants to eliminate trade treaties that are taking American jobs away from Americans and giving the jobs to cheap Mexican labor in American manufacturing plants built in Mexico since NAFTA was approved, plants who sends their products, tariff free, back across the border to the U.S.A. for selling to American’s who are out of work because their jobs went to Mexico.
The NAFTA Treaty allowing jobs to go to Mexico, was signed by Hillary’s husband, President Bill Clinton of course. (If you want to see where American jobs went because of NAFTA, go east from San Diego to Mexicali and then south to San Felipe; just south of the border, the highway is full of American manufacturing plants built on the highway, mile after mile, just south of the border; the manufacturing plants of course, are manned by cheap Mexican labor.) (American workers would have to sneak south over the border illegally to Mexico, if they wanted to get their old job back.)
I was amazed yesterday when I heard Donald Trump making a speech right out of Bernie Sanders campaign book, saying he, Trump, would eliminate treaties like NAFTA and TPP; I went into shock. I wonder how or if Hillary will respond?
Basically, I see Bernie staying in the race through the Democratic Convention, forcing the Democratic Party to decide between Bernie Sanders’ liberal progressive Middle Class and Poor Democrat’s agenda and the Corporate America’s Democratic agenda for Hillary Clinton who is basically supported by Wall Street contributions and corporate America’s super PACs for Hillary.
Those Democrat delegates, especially “special delegates” supporting Hillary, are going to have to vote against Bernie Sander’s liberal progressive working Middle Class and Poor’s agenda to support Hillary’s Corporate America candidacy. And Bernie will make sure voters get the word.
Just what is it that Hillary doesn’t understand about Bernie’s purpose in running for President throughout the Democratic Party Convention?
However, it looks like Hillary just might attract a lot of Republicans to vote for her because they oppose their own Donald Trump and “the Donald” is using Bernie’s campaign speeches to attract liberal progressive Democrats to vote for him; it would appear to me that there will be a lot of disgusted Democratic Party voters who will not vote in 2016, just like they didn’t vote in 2014. When liberal progressive voters do not have a liberal progressive candidate that they can salve the conscience voting for, they just do not vote.
And a vote for the lesser of two evils, is still a vote for evil, to govern America.
