Warren is soo petty? I think she was always mad Bernie decided to run again and that she flopped and blames it on him from taking progressives from her.

Warren has always been a fake progressive and part of the establishment, hence why she chose to wait and endorse Hillary in 2016 instead of Bernie when he could have used her. Bernie pushed her to run in 2015, but she didn't want to challenge Hillary and declined.

I genuinely do not understand this baseless talking point. Especially given that Warren completely sold out her integrity by playing stupid games.

I consider myself a progressive, but it's over for Bernie based on ST, time to move onto skinny legend AOC!

Eh whatever, I can accept that Liz has lost and will sadly be voting for Biden, who was anything but my first choice

I personally do not blame her for Bernie's loss. I just think it's disappointing that she's unwilling to stand up for the progressive policies she ran on. Sis is refusing to fight for M4A - which would save 68,000 lives annually - because of snake emojis. SNAKE EMOJIS. Like, WTF.

 

My disappointment has nothing to do with Bernie at this point. It's just sad to see that her progressive convictions were never what was most important to her, if they were even important to her at all. Because of Liz, it's going to be hard for me to trust progressive candidates in the future. There will always be a degree of cynicism and suspicion sitting at the back of my head.

lmao. Warren should not have run period. Bernie was the candidate with the momentum and the movement coalesced behind him. Warren did nothing but act like a spoiler, soaked up resources,  and embarrass herself in her home state.

I love Warren and she is right about the Bernie Bros... They are too puritanical. You can disagree with compromising too early without totally degrading and demonizing someone. With that said Bernie should’ve stood by the people supporting him.

 

tbqh Bernie shouldn’t have run as a Democrat. He’s don’t nothing to make the party better from the inside even though he had already run for president. Elizabeth Warren on the other hand has been working with people to change the platform from within and making sure the right people are in the right places.

Speaking of third party, who is even running green this year. Not everyone can have Jill Stein's starpower I suppose

Actually, this is a point I've wanted to mention for a while - the Green Party's current leader and likely nominee is pretty good, he doesn't have the name recognition or infrastructure ready at this stage that would be needed to make a real impact. The Green Party is the strongest party in leftist politics right now, and I think that if it's going to be chosen as the primary vehicle for leftist attention and change in the next few years, we need to start seriously prepping for 2024 and beyond now, rather than waiting. If another leftist organization or party is to step in and take over, the same applies.

You're progressive so you're voting for Biden over Bernie. Make it make sense. 

 

I don't trust Warren, but if it were Biden vs. Liz, I'd vote Liz in a heartbeat. Because even if Liz achieved 1% of her progressive promises, that'd still be MILES more than anything Biden would ever do for us.

I had an interesting thought earlier today... I wonder if Bernie and other progressive democrats that have heavy weight in Congress should leave the Democrat party to create a new major third party. It could be called the New Democrat Party,  Independence Party or Progressive Party. I strongly believe we need to send a message to the moderate/centrists that their neoliberalism policies days are over.

Yes, DSA like I mentioned above has laid alot of ground work through the Bernie/AOC wave to potentially be a serious American political party as well. The problem is working these parties up could take a lifetime

But it doesn't have to be. The primary season is still not over. ST was dissapointing, but not a total loss. You can still volunteer for the Bernie campaign instead of throwing your hands up and saying "WeLp, BiDeN 2020!!1!!1"

 

The way some switched so quickly from Bernie to BideT is....alarming, and quite telling.

OT: Yes, we need to build a third party, probably using the infrastructure of the Green party. Burn the DNC to the ground even if Bernie does pull through. Literal supervillains.

Oh, I thought you meant you're voting Biden in the primary because Liz dropped out. That's fine. 

 

This thread is only for those who voted or plan to vote for a progressive (Bernie or Liz) in the primary. Biden Bros have the 2020 US Election thread to enjoy until November.
