Remember that one time when he had a rally in North Charleston, SC?

Remember that one time when he had a rally in North Charleston, SC? BS can't even get AA and POC to attend a rally at an historically BLACK church in a MAJORITY BLACK neighborhood, within a MAJORITY BLACK city.

His rally (although well-attended) had so LITTLE ethnic diversity that it looked like he could have been somewhere Vermont. In fact, based on the statistics, the demographics at that rally was even whiter than Vermont.

It's obvious that the AA and POC community are rejecting BS and the BS campaign. They did then, and they still do NOW. He can't make headway. He hasn't been able to refine and tune his message.

BS just doesn't connect with that community. The BS message just isn't resonating. When the AA voters don't even BOTHER to show up to a rally that's RIGHT THERE in their city, their neighborhood, their church facility... well that is a SERIOUS SNUB and COMPLETE REJECTION.

All I'm saying is, with such a humiliating rejection by the AA and POC communities, and without their vote, BS doesn't stand a chance.

I prefer it when candidates do not denigrate the Democratic party with outright LIES.

Biden does not hate the Democratic party. Biden does not call Democrats "intellectually bankrupt". Biden does not think that the Democratic party is "ideologically bankrupt". Biden does not believe that Democrats are "feeble" and "corrupt".

Biden has never proclaimed that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure". You'll never hear Biden (nor his supporters_ characterize the Democratic party as being "the party of the one-percent". Futhermore, neither Biden nor his supporters accuse the Democratic party of being "the party of the elite."

Joe Biden does not denigrate the Democratic party with accusations of being "do-nothings". The Biden campaign believes that racism is real and that economic considerations won't make racism go away. Neither Biden or his surrogates smear the Democratic party by saying that "it focuses 'too-much' on Diversity".

We need to be united after all this. The goal is to beat Trump.
Yes it is, and the DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS THE ONLY PARTY THAT CAN DO THAT. We are a defacto "two-party-system" here in this country. No other party will bring down the GOP.

All I'm trying to say is that sure, there is tension arguing and bickering among ourselves and pointing out the obvious flaws in other candidates while participating in an anonymous discussion forum and on Twitter, etc... that's par for the course and to be expected.

But then... there are the OUTRIGHT LIES and other things that certain candidates, campaigns, surrogates and other ndividuals do and say publicly that denigrate and smear and divide and create distrust and suspicion and resentment... and which discourages voters from supporting the Democratic party.

In case you missed it... allow me to repeat: those things DISCOURAGE VOTERS FROM SUPPORTING THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AT ALL. It demonizes the Democratic party and portrays the party as being "no different" or "the same as" the GOP.

THOSE ARE DANGEROUS FUCKING LIES, MY FRIEND!

Here's the bottom line: Lies and smears about Democrats and the Democratic party create negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections. What good purpose does that serve? Why would any forward-thinking individual purposely do and say things that harm the Democratic party and which benefit the GOP?

"I have never taken sanders seriously due to a complete lack of legislative accomplishments"

I have never taken sanders seriously due to a complete lack of legislative accomplishments
Yes, this, exactly. Lots of empty promises. Pie in the sky. Fantasies that simply won't come true. We don't elect kings and queens. We don't elect dictators.

Smart voters (who live in the real world) understand these things. Intelligent voters know that real progress is incremental. Mature voters know that you don't always get what you want. Rational voters know that you can't bully your way into success and that you've got to find common ground and mutual interests with the opposition. Adult voters who have real world experience know all these things.

The candidate that I support will know all these things too and will be someone who has the temperament and demeanor to make me proud that he (or she) is our party's nominee.

THANK GOD!

I still remember that one time that BS held a rally in an historically "black church" auditorium/multi-purpose hall... in a majority black city (North Charleston, SC)... in a predominantly black neighborhood and those in attendance make it look like he was in lily-white Vermont. Actually, the ethnic diversity of the people that attended that rally were MORE WHITE than Vermont.

It was clear to me then (and it's clear to me now) that AA and POC voters aren't buying what he's selling. AA and POC voters are very loyal to the Democratic party and are proud to be Democrats. I honestly don't know how anyone expects to receive votes from loyal and stalwart livelong Democrats when they have such a despicable reputation of denigrating and smearing Democrats and the Democratic party with so many attacks and lies.



You'll never hear Barney Frank calling the Democratic party "feeble" or "ideologically bankrupt"...

You'll never hear Barney Frank calling the Democratic party "feeble" or "ideologically bankrupt". Barney Frank won't be accusing the Democratic party of being "corrupt" and he won't be calling Democrats "the party of the elite" and "the party of the one-percent". Barney Frank does not hate the Democratic party and he does not proclaim the party to be "an absolute failure."

Frank doesn't accuse Democrats of being "do-nothings", and he doesn't accuse Democrats of "focusing 'too-much' on Diversity". And something else about Barney Frank's character: he doesn't defend or make excuses for racists... he knows that if someone refuses to vote for a candidate because of his/her skin color... then that voter is indeed a racist.

Thank GOD for Barney Frank, DEMOCRAT!

We need more LOYAL DEMOCRATS just like him!

Running "as-a" Democrat is NOT the same thing as actually "being-a" Democrat. --- The word itself...

Running "as-a" Democrat is NOT the same thing as actually "being-a" Democrat. He and his supporters like to repeat those two words often... reminding us that he's running "as a" Democrat.

The word itself functions as a preposition and a quick check with the Google's dictionary, we see that "as" (in this context) only means "similar" (in the guise of; with the appearance of; so as to appear to be; etc.)

I simply cannot support anyone who refuses to fully embrace the Democratic party, and commit to the Democratic party in a lifelong, sincere and meaningful way. Anyone who chooses to play a role, and who refuses to pledge and dedicate themselves (permanently) to the Democratic party is NOT someone who deserves my vote.

I know that I speak for millions of loyal, lifelong, stalwart, and dedicated Democrats who will never vote for a Socialist who has such open contempt and hostility for Democrats and the Democratic party. This is why a Socialist running "as a" Democrat will never be our party's nominee.



Biden supporters do not hate the Democratic party. Biden supporters do not...

Biden supporters do not hate the Democratic party. Biden supporters do not call Democrats "intellectually bankrupt". Biden supporters do not think that the Democratic party is "ideologically bankrupt". Biden supporters do not believe that Democrats are "feeble" and "corrupt". Biden supporters do not proclaim that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure". Neither Biden nor his supporters characterize the Democratic party as being "the party of the one-percent". Neither Biden nor his supporters accuse the Democratic party of being "the party of the elite."

None of Biden's supporters denigrate the Democratic party with accusations of being "do-nothings". Biden's supporters believe that racism is real and that economic considerations won't make racism go away. Biden's supporters do not smear the party by saying that "it focuses 'too-much' on Diversity"... and we readily admit that people who refuse to vote for someone BECAUSE of the color of his/her skin IS INDEED a racist (we don't defend or make excuses for racists).

All I'm trying to say is that there is "rudeness" when arguing and bickering among ourselves in an anonymous discussion forum and on Twitter, etc... and then there are the OUTRIGHT LIES and other things that certain candidates and individuals do and say publicly that denigrate and smear and divide and create distrust and suspicion... and which discourages voters from supporting the Democratic party.

Fiddle-dee-dee! Well! The delicate Southern Gentleman from South Carolina is having what can only be

Well! Fiddle-dee-dee! I do declare! The ever-so delicate Southern Gentleman from South Carolina is having what can only be described as a hissy fit. If you listen very carefully, you can hear the unmistakable sounds of Little Lindsey stomp-stomp-stomping his way down the terrazzo floors in the Halls of Congress. Click-click-click go the heels and toes of his high-gloss patent leather tap shoes. The shine is so bright you might overlook his color-coordinated ankle-high socks embroidered with his initials in the fold-down cuff. Everyone stops and watches as he storms past... fists clinched in rage with a little scowl on his face. Eventually he reaches his office and slams the door behind him with a level of force and strength that defies the meek appearance he has when wearing his short pants and matching waistcoat. It slams so loudly that it makes his chandeliers sway and his antique porcelain tea-set rattles on the table. Still, even with the door firmly closed, passers-by can hear the shrill shrieks emanating from behind the polished oak door... along with the unmistakable sounds of his glass figurines collection being thrown to the floor one by one. Why! Lordy, you never heard such a fuss! Someone needs to check on him before he snatches all the heads of the playthings in his toybox.
