Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are the two wings of the Democratic party. Clinton is the Democratic establishment, consisting of corrupt corporatists who sacrifice American workers for globalism and their corporate masters. Because the Clintons, the Democratic leadership in Congress, CNN, and MSNBC all want to stop Bernie, I want to help him. He’s not a globalist, or the tool of international big business. He’s the Anti-Clinton.
If you’re a Republican, there’s a chance you could help Bernie defeat Clintonism. South Carolina votes on February 29th, followed three days later by Super Tuesday, with votes in, among others, Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Minnesota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Vermont. If you live in one of these states you can vote for Bernie in the primary, even though you’re a Republican.
On Monday in New Hampshire President Trump suggested his audience vote for the Democrat who would be the easiest for him to beat. But I’m not advocating for Sanders because I think he’d lose to Trump. I’m supporting him because most of his most powerful enemies are my enemies as well.
My enemy’s enemy is my friend.
The other reason to vote for Sanders is to stop Buttigeig. He’s the new version of Bill Clinton. Bright, charming, pedigreed and glib, he hides his real agenda behind an eager, smiling face. Like Clinton, he’s a snake, a fork tongued phony. Stopping Buttigeig is important, and Bernie can do it, and win black votes doing it. As black journalist Elie Mystal explains in the Nation, blacks really don’t like Buttigieg. Clinton knew blacks well all his life, and could relate to them. White bread Mayor Pete doesn’t know how.
I live in California, so I have to change my registration to voter for Bernie on March 3rd. Since there really isn’t a Republican Party of California, it will be well worth doing.
