If you cannot say something positive about Democrats

In a Democratic forum then STFU.

Too much is at stake for the incessant criticism.

primary today, I would vote for:

13. "I don't want Trump to be re-elected - but I'll be damned if I'll vote for a communist."

 

https://www.democraticunderground.com/1287570879

The constant cries about how being a “Democratic socialist” doesn’t mean he IS a communist-type socialist is a moot point. Unless you plan to go door-to-door and explain the difference to all of the voters who equate ‘socialism’ with USSR communism, you are not going to change their minds. They hear “socialist’, and they attach their own (albeit ill-informed) meaning to the term – and it’s NOT the style of government they will vote for.

I’ve seen this repeatedly on the sites I participate in where both Dems and Repubs post: “I don’t want Trump to be re-elected – but I’ll be damned if I’ll vote for a communist.” You can shout all you want about how these people don’t understand what socialism is, or how what Bernie is proposing isn’t socialism as they perceive it. But people vote according to what they believe, and not according to what you think they should believe.


Many voters are likely to take Jane Sanders' election-day advice to "vote their heart" and that it "really doesn't matter who they vote for as long as you vote" ... I can see that happening, and that will surely lead to Trump's 2nd term.

7. You should have a chat with Sanders and his staff.

 

Unlike DU, which is essentially a niche website with a specific audience, what they do and say actually has a significant impact on the voting public. Alienating large numbers of people on a somewhat-consistent basis doesn't seem like a winning strategy.

8. nah

 

criticism is fine, but I'm with you on excessive negativity and just constantly beating down a candidate because you don't like them.
