Response to Fiendish Thingy (Reply #1)

58. Fiendish, the 3/4 who voted for Hillary are US, fellow Democrats.

 

This discussion is about the other quarter of Sanders voters who were instrumental in electing Trump, a Republican-controlled congress, and hundreds of Republcans to governorships, state legislatures, and judicial seats.

In an era when most elections will be won or lost by narrow margins, this is an important subject for all those who currently have no intention of voting for any Democrat...except Sanders. Our votes don't create power so much as they only determine WHO will get it. As Trump so dreadfully illustrates.

Everyone in that quarter of Sanders supporters who voted third party in 2016 effectively helped elect Trump, and they own all that's happened since. Not just the 12% who voted for Trump.

These people need to know all the atrocities and attacks on progressivism are their legacy so they can either vote Democrat to stop the Republicans or refuse to repeat their hypocrisy by voting directly Republican.

But we have to face the reality that most are already determined once again to NOT vote Democrat if Sanders is not the nominee, which means they will not vote Democrat in 2020. These are, by far, not our people to keep, they're Trump's to lose to third-party candidates. And those caught up on the wrong side of this need to understand it; only the most extreme literally cannot change their minds.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
