What is the Bern thinking today?
Would it have been better to have run Bernie?
Or would the socialist have ben slaughtered?

If the DNC had been more hands off during the primary and let it shake out with the little people picking the nominee, what would we see today?

Socialist Sanders was the opposite side of the coin of Trump -- a populist but one who believed in the power of big government. And he would have squashed Trump like a bug. The Dems nominated -- through their screwed-up system -- the only candidate Trump could beat. Of course, the Repubs did the same with Trump. That's what the vote was so, so close.

I think Bernie was a great guy and would probably have voted for him over Stein, but if the DNC could rig the primaries, why couldn't they rig the General? Wasn't last night a perfect example of how the Democrats are not really rigging elections as they are accused by half-baked high school paper investigative journalism?

Superdelegates suck and should be abolished, but they seem to what they are designed to do and aren't "corrupt" per se.

I think Bernie would have beat Trump. But then again, all the GOP candidates should have beat Trump, so there you go.

Just because Clinton lost, does not mean there was no fraud.
Super delegates seems to exist purely to get who they want into power.

Considering you started with the "rigged primary" canard I was going to pass.

Bern would have won in a landslide. Most likely a mega-sweep. People are fed up and want someone to stir the pot. I knew this message would resonate but felt that orange-POTUS was a bad enough messenger it would have waited util 2020.


It was an 'underwear election' a crusty old pair of undies with a urine stain in the front and a shit stain in the back. The shit stain won.

You seek perfection? Climb a mountain and commune with God. Otherwise, certainly there's fraud -- on both sides. Did it effect the outcome? No. I'll take 95% as a good standard.

Go ask the average millennial college douche nozzle if they feel it was rigged against Bernie.
Especially after the wiki leak emails.

As far as the tread title? I'd say rural white voters, white supremacists, defense contractors, angry old white dudes (the 'Git Awf My Lawnders).

I am one of those, Sam. And yep, I'm pissed about it. Sanders was my first choice.
