South Carolina was a debacle but it was expected. I am hopeful that Bernie will do well on March 1 and if so I believe we should fight on, all the way to the Democratic convention.
But in the event the outcome on March 1 does not support a realistic prolongation of the campaign, I very strongly believe that Bernie and the grassroots organization his campaign has built should move on to achieve permanency, to create a new political party; a Liberal Party of the United States.
Funds remainign with the Bernie 2016 campaign should be put toward this goal, if election contribution law allows it.
I believe this party should establish a very clearly defined ideological platform in order to prevent the highjacking of the party by pseudo Liberals. The new Liberal Party should also concentrate on forming a legion of cadres, running for public office at local levels, building up a solid foundation aiming at the future. This is a Marathon; not the 100 meter sprint. This is the great challenge for the younger generations: Takaing back our country and reclaiming their future.
The votes so far have showed that the baby boomers have for the most part stuck with Hillary. That is in my opinion very selfish; the last display of selfishness of the generation that brought us Reagan and all the misery that followed. The votes have also showed the racial split; Blacks are predominantly supporting the candidates of their race or those supported by Obama, regardless of the merits of the positions they (the candidates) adopt. I call that visual alignment (versus intellectual alignment that most voters follow).
Millenials: it is time to move on and reach for your future
The strict ideological platform is a must in light of what has happened to the Democratic Party. The DM has been hollowed by the pseudo Democrats; hollowed of ideas and raison d’etre (other that keeping the Republicans out of office). More and more states and local governments have fallen under Republican control because the Democratic Party has lost its identity. Both Clinton and Obama did incalculable harm to the Democratic cause.
Regardless how much we Bernie Sanders supporters shrug it, Nevada is an important loss. But Hillary R. Clinton is a stooge of Wall Street, same as Obama is. What did president Obama do for blacks? Nothing. Sure Obama is one of them. So where the African warriors who would hunt and sell other Africans to slavers for pots, cheap ornaments, and guns in western Africa during the XVIII and XIX centuries.
Hillary R. Clinton ran the US State Department from 2009 through 2013, overseeing the Grand Debacle in the Middle East and the collapse of US diplomacy into the trap of demanding Syria’s Assad departure or else.
It is in foreign relations that she claims her greater advantage over Bernie Sanders but Clinton still embraces the old Cold War Russophobia, this at a time when the US and Russia must work together t manage the multiple crisis points.
Of course, everybody knows she supported H.W. Bush with her vote for war against Iraq in the U.S. Senate in 2003. Much sorrow has come from that vote.
