From the very start of his incredible journey to taking down the establishment, Senator Sanders has always emphasized that his campaign was not about electing a president, but about transforming America. And to do that, he brought in millions of new and older voters–disgusted with the compromised and corporate-lite state of the Democratic Party–back into the fold. Attracting thousands to his rallies, this one transformative and humble figure inspired the people stand up loudly and, in an almost Howard Beale-like moment (Google it), had them boldly say “this country belongs to all of us, not just a wealthy few!”. And judging by all the caucuses and primaries he won, his message resonated like nothing ever seen.
President Obama, who wisely kept himself at a large distance from the Democratic Primary so as to not cause any further rifts, met with Bernie Sanders on Thursday morning at the White House. Now that Hillary Clinton has clinched the Democratic nomination and President Obama has formally endorsed her, the question on the minds of Bernie supporters and democrats is when will the seemingly indefatigable populist Senator give up his fight for the party’s presidential nomination.
Well, it’s looking more and more like Sanders might do just that.
As a strong supporter of Bernie myself (and not just because I do great Bernie Sanders impressions), this election has made me even more cynical to the so-called democratic process, particularly the MSM’s nauseating meddling. Sanders will undoubtedly continue to rail against the DNC’s handling of the primary–and justifiably so–but Sanders’ doesn’t appear ready to declare that the entire primary was illegitimate.
We will continue doing everything we can to oppose the drift that currently exists toward and oligarchic form society where a handful of billionaires exercise enormous power over our political, economic and media life, Sanders said.
The Democratic primary turned social media into an episode of Game of Thrones: with House Sanders representing the overlooked and chided Wildlings, and House Clinton representing the powerful and monied interests of House Lannister. But it looks like we all have to come together if we wish to defeat the white walker that is Donald Trump Having been said, Bernie hinted that he looks forward to meeting with Clinton “to see how we can work together to defeat Donald Trump and to create a government which represents all of us and not just the 1 percent.” Sanders did not emphatically support Hillary or indicate that he’s on Team Clinton, but appears to have hinted to his supporters that it might be over for him.
