Dark thoughts on what's going on in the primaries last night

I took some weed for medicinal purposes last nite and the trip was one of the anxiety ones. Generally this is rare for me, but when it happens it’s always reflected my overall mental state which at the moment is stressed. I’m a Biden supporter but just barely, I’ll go with any moderate. But even if Bernie wins I’ve felt that we will still beat Trump.

Then last nite during the trip something new occurred to me that I’m not sure anyone has thought about. What if the Russians are meddling not because they want Bernie to win the nomination, but they know he cannot win and thus it sets in motion a series of steps which results in you know who getting re-elected. We’ve looked at this thru the prism of Bernie’s socialism, but what if it’s not socialism the Russians are after ... what if they just want Trump back in the Whitehouse and that’s all.

6. lol.. I was going to post..

 

Ya think but I didn't want to be mean. I couldn't believe what I was reading.

But I guess it does take getting high sometimes for certain epiphanies.

4. Russia's "goal" is to disrupt. Period.

 

When we still had our career federal workers, they told us this. They reported the goal was to divide and disrupt. And look at us, even here on DU. The divide and disrupt will give us trump.

12. It's operation chaos . . .

 

Nevertheless, what Republicans and Russia should know by now is . . .

That pretty much sums up the Democratic Party per se. When you have free will and thoughts from individuals that seems to create some chaos and disagreements, pros and cons, ups and downs. Democrats generally are not single minded nor a cult.

That is called Democracy.

Anywho, with that, Republicans and with the help of foreign countries need to cheat, steal, suppress, go negative on voting rights and lie like hell (election 2016). Now they say look at 2018, well hell, we came out in full force (no EC). We need to do the same with 2020 across board even in the EC states as well.

In 2016 overall the votes was there for the WH but cheating and stealing did occur in the EC states (3rd party did damage).

We will come together.

5. They want Trump back in the White House.

 

He’s a useful idiot , who “ listens well”, according to Putin.

Putin attacks us from all sides. It is complexHe uses the R’s to attack us from the right ( trolls, Fox News, gives them money as well) .

And he attacks us from the left. A good vehicle to do that is support Sanders. This way Putin ‘ attacks’ us from the left.

We are bombarded from both sides, and pitted against each other in the process

It is time to coalesce around Joe Biden, imo.
I actually like all the Dems.

I am reminded of a sentence I used to type as practice...


“ Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their party.”

9. You are misquoting Kennedy

 

The actual quote is:
“ Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.”

15. No , I am not misquoting anyone. The sentence we used was

 

“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their party.”


Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their party" is a phrase first proposed as a typing drill by instructor Charles E. Weller; its use is recounted in his book The Early History of the Typewriter, p. 21 (1918).


Had nothing to do with JFK.

7. Of corse that is what Putin want, Trump to win. The intelligence agency reported that a few

 

days ago, and made trump very angry that it got out

As four what they might be doing in regard to the Democratic primaries, we really don’t know, but can reasonably assume they are at least using social media to their advantage

13. Dude if you're looking for more of a hit, find another supplier

 

I’ve never touched the stuff in my life and I came to the exact same conclusion. Millions like me.

I think you’re being snuck oregano if you ask me.

16. LOL

 

Yeah, fortunately, this is NJ state legal weed so I think its real. I was definately a little slow on the uptake here, I was thinking they're after a socialist in the traditional sense, but looks like they're trying to engineer a win-win scenario.

19. I mean... that's kind of the orthodox interpretation

 

That's roughly "what the publicly available information says", not some kind of stretch.

20. Yes

 

Thats true, I just hadn't thought of it this way. I was thinking the Russian thing was all connected to them wanting to get a pro-socialist US government. But I understand now that this might well not be their true objective at all.

21. Or what if, as the IC says, they are trying to sow discord within our party to depress turnout?
