Just yesterday, I was saying I thought Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders was giving up by wanting to meet with hated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Believe me, Bernie might be harder to beat but Hillary is as foul as a truck stop bathroom. Sanders, who has built up huge momentum over the past few months, thinks he has the mandate to demand and shift things around within the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
The only problem with that synopsis my friends is Sanders is not a Democrat. He is an independent and the DNC is a private organization that won’t listen to an aging Socialist about changing things.
You have to give it to old man Sanders, he’s got guts, he’s gold boldness but he lacks real smarts. If he really wants to change the party, he’s going to have to do it from the outside, like way outside.
From The Hill:
Bernie Sanders called for the removal of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) as the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) as part of a “fundamental transformation of the Democratic Party” in an impromptu news conference Tuesday afternoon.
He ignored repeated questions from reporters as to whether he’d drop out of the presidential race after he met with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton Tuesday evening.When asked whether he could see himself nominating Clinton on the floor of the party’s national convention, like Clinton did for then-Sen. Barack Obamain 2008, Sanders chuckled and repeated his assertion that “we are going to fight as hard as we can” to change the party.
“I do believe that we have to replace the current Democratic National Committee leadership,” he said outside his campaign headquarters in Washington.
“We need a person at the leadership of the DNC who is vigorously supporting and out working to bring people into the political process.”
“We need major, major changes in the Democratic Party in converting it to a party of the people — welcoming working people and welcoming young people,” Sanders said.
“And we need an electoral process which is worthy of the Democrats.”
He called for same-day voter registration, an increase in staffing at precincts, a guarantee of open primaries and an end to the party’s use of superdelegates.
The Democrats did not think they would have this much trouble with an old Socialist but they are. Sanders has captured not only the old people but the young people. Don’t get me wrong I am not a socialist I do not believe in the socialist agenda, Bernie Sanders has laid the seed and is only going to grow over the years.
Hopefully by then United States would have been on the right track for decades but that remains to be seen.
