‘Grandiosity As Addictive As Smack’
“What happened over this weekend was that that Sanders effort to take the majority of the delegates even after losing the caucus got denied”.(5)
Looking back, when Sanders ‘became’ a Democrat back in November, the Democratic Party should have said – “Thank you Senator Sanders. But since you’ve beeen and Independent Socialist Democrat for 35+ years, we can’t have you now deciding that you want to be a Democrat and use all of the structures we have worked hard to put in place”.
“Good luck running as an Independent with the other Independent political parties”.
From outside the party, Republicans have worked hard for 25+ years to destroy the Clinton’s. Couldn’t do it.
And with the turmoil in the Republican party, ready to nominate a narcissistic fraud in Trump, the Democrats were primed to keep the White House, take back the Senate, make HUGE inroads in the House and begin to take back some to the over 30 States where Republicans control Governorships and State legislatures.
Bernie Sanders couldn’t see that.
So he began promising free ponies to everyone and especially young people.
‘Free college tuition’ – read the legislation and it depends on each State MATCHING the Federal funds. Since no State has an extra $100-300 Million dollars laying around, Bernie’s ‘free college tuition’ was a failure from the start.
‘Free health care in Medicare For All – ever economists says it will cost 10 to 15 BILLION dollars over 10 years. Bernie’s own economist says it needs a 5.3% economic growth. Impossible to obtain in a global economy.
So Bernie wants HIS own political movement.
No raising money or campaigning for down ticket Democrats.
Bernie wants to ‘take on wall street’.

– It turns out Bernie Doesn’t have a clue as to how to do it.
Wall Street, Medicare For All, Free College Tution- all sound bites with no substance.
Thank you Bernie for fu*king up what could have been a Democratic landslide in 2016 and very possibly giving us a President Donald Trump.
“It is imperative that the Democratic leadership, both nationally and in the states, understand that the political world is changing and that millions of Americans are outraged at establishment politics and establishment economics”.
“Within the last few days there have been a number of criticisms made against my campaign organization. Party leaders in Nevada, for example, claim that the Sanders campaign has a ‘penchant for violence.’ That is nonsense”.(1)
Back in February, Hillary Clinton won the Nevada Caucus 53% to 47%.

‘Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston on Tuesday posted audio on his website of three threatening and nasty voicemails received by party Chairwoman Roberta Lange’.
“I just wanted to let you know that I think people like you should be hung [sic] in a public execution to show this world that we won’t stand for this sort of corruption,” says the caller on one voicemail, who left his phone number’.
One caller called Lange a “f—ing corrupt bitch” and another called her an “old hag.”
“If you don’t think that that’s coming back to bite you in the ass, you have got another thing coming,” said one female caller’.
‘Sanders’s supporters packed the state convention on Saturday hoping to earn their candidate additional delegates in a state where rival Hillary Clinton had won the majority of support’.(2)
