Pelosi says she’d be comfortable with Sanders at top of ticket

Westlake Legal Group rBjiq0-p2MZ4o24FQRROIGoz_TT051Eq4wxuD7TvD4I Pelosi says she'd be comfortable with Sanders at top of ticket r/politics

It is. Mostly because it proves that the majority of the Senate and House would run with and not away from Sanders. The recent positive Schumer comments are also great news.

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with how Corbyn lost in the UK, but a big part of it was relentless attacks from within his own party. It often seemed like the moderate wing of the Labour Party preferred to lose rather than let Corbyn win. He was painted as an anti-semite, a communist, a pacifist, and everything in-between. It didn’t help that the media ran against him — he famously canceled Christmas — but it was his own party’s attacks that gave the smears legitimacy.

The big question behind Sanders’ movement is to what extent he can prevent the full Democratic establishment from doing the same. There is no doubt that some will run against him no matter what. That’s a given. The question is how many.

In case you’re not persuaded that this is a big deal, think about it this way. For every sitting Senator or Congressman who doesn’t support the Sanders movement, progressives need to add one of their own. That’s no easy task.

Some moderates will have to be replaced no matter what. But if a Joe Manchin can be persuaded to change his mind and support the progressive agenda, that is so much easier than mounting a primary challenge, waiting until the next election, and hoping you win both the primary and the general in the state.

If you want Sanders’ proposals to become law, Schumer and Pelosi being relatively positive to a Sanders ticket are possibly the biggest piece of news this week. Nevada is good and all, but winning the primary is just Step 1; winning the General is Step 2; enacting laws is Step 3. Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, Obama and every other influential Democrat will be essential to Step 2 and 3 whether you like them or not.

Really, Sanders’ political agenda is perfectly in line with what Democrats generally say they want. So, despite his railing on the establishment, there’s a significant chance they simply decide to become less corporate and more ambitious if he becomes the nominee. It would be hugely beneficial for both Sanders and the country.

‘In Chile, In Guatemala, In Iran’: Sanders Applauded for Highlighting US Record of Overthrowing Governments Around the World; “Nobody on the debate stage except Bernie has the guts to say the truth about the legacy of U.S. foreign policy.”

Westlake Legal Group VBBOSzDhkgYvNdVZO5Q2Qzsb4-vE6r-jlqpNBSUR22c 'In Chile, In Guatemala, In Iran': Sanders Applauded for Highlighting US Record of Overthrowing Governments Around the World; "Nobody on the debate stage except Bernie has the guts to say the truth about the legacy of U.S. foreign policy." r/politics

We have funded and supported many illegal coups to prop up terroristic far-right governments in Latin America and the Middle East that allow our corporations to use their land and resources and pay their labor starvation wages. These include Iran, Guatemala, El Salvador , Nicaragua, Honduras , The Dominican Republic ,Bolivia ,Argentina ,and of course Chile.

And that’s not to mention what we did to Japan, Korea (this is one of the most egregious examples, and one not many people know about. We knowingly murdered 1/5 of their population), Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, Iraq, and Iraq again

We have knowingly and intentionally murdered millions of women and children with everything from drones, to napalm, to deliberate starvation, to chemical weapons, to nuclear weapons. People in multiple countries (Cambodia, Laos, Iraq) are still being born with birth defects and increased rates of cancer from our chemical weapons

Bernie Sanders says “The truth is, nothing I am saying is radical”

I’ll never understand why proud Americans, who think this is the greatest, most powerful nation on Earth, believe we would fail at figuring out M4A.

Too expensive, too complicated, wait times for medical attention too long, etc etc.

Other countries have figured it out. Shouldn’t we take that as a challenge? We invented the internet. We invented modern Democracy. We were the first ones to put people on the surface of the Moon, for fuck’s sakes

But apparently we can’t figure out how to make sure every person has medical coverage. I wonder if it has anything to do with millions of dollars spent on propaganda and lobbying.
