A winner who doesn’t want to win for himself but for all of us

Bernie plummets to undisputed 1st place while Biden SURGES to distant second, nationally, finally!

If Bernie just can pull off South Carolina and knocks Biden out of the ring one more time! That’s the hurdle and tomorrow’s debate performance at Charlseton, SC is very crucial as every other candidate and media are ready to throw everything at him. Why is Jim Clyburn, the house majority whip from South Carolina, thinking about endorsing Biden after his miserable performance in IOWA, NH and NEVADA is beyond my common sense? Well!

California, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania – Bernie is going to win. Michigan and Massachusetts are going to be tough race as they are the home states of Amy Klobucher and Elizabeth Warren. But Bernie can still pull that off given few more wins along the path.

Marianne Williamson’s endorsement after dropping out from the race is the biggest news of this week as she brings many people traditionally uninterested in politics early on now to understand Bernie’s platform. May be because of her, Bernie may win Texas, even against Trump in general election.

I hope Yang and Tulsi will support Bernie after super Tuesday.

I like, one of the leading female anti-corruption activist, Zephyr Teachout(Attorney and Law professor) endorsing Bernie (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zephyr_Teachout). I actually like her more than Elizabeth Warren in terms of what she stands for. I wish she could run one day or get a significant position in Bernie’s cabinet if she wins. She has the merit to be the first woman President of United States one day. And former African American senator Nina Turner as VP under Bernie will make it all-around. Indian origin Rep. Pramila Joyapal from Washington is endorsing Bernie and integrating her own proposal with Bernie’s medicare4all to provide universal health care for everybody in USA. Indian origin California Rep. Rho Khanna from California and middle eastern origin Rep. Rashida Tlaib from Michigan and one and only AOC from NY are helping his message soar.

The most multi-racial, multi-generational candidate of all time – Bernard Sanders. This country can truly boast of being united across gender and race and move forward with the green new deal and the real change which will propel the change in political dynamics all across the world.

Bernie got the full house.. Game over!

And yes, Bernie will beat Trump.. 100%. Landslide. If you don’t remember, Trump didn’t even win the popular vote last time, he was about 3 million votes behind Hillary Clinton. And Bernie will be millions and millions of votes ahead of Trump.. easily with all the young and multi-racial new voters who are always left out by centrist, establishment democrat.. now that most moderate democrats are also lining behind Bernie as evidenced in Nevada caucus.

If you haven’t understood Bernie’s plan yet, it’s time to realize and believe in him. Bernie did it when he became house rep in 1991 when nobody thought he could, he became the senator in 2007 when everybody was shocked, he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016 in multiple states and started the progressive movement when he had negligible name recognition compared to Clintons outside of the progressive circle and now in 2020 every other candidates are running on his platform with his original messages. And now to everybody’s amazement again, he will win it.
Anybody who still doesn’t know what Bernie has done for this country for last ~40 years, I just really want to put a nail on your coffin.. sorry.. No, I am kidding. I love you and just learn more: https://www.sanders.senate.gov/legislation
And if you are still complaining “How is he going to pay for everything?” I will just chime what my twitter friend Tina Parker says “How will we pay for it? Well, we pay for wars, bailing out Wall st, bankers, auto companies, etc.The price we pay for NOT having it: LIVES! These are parents, children, siblings. NOT ACCEPTABLE !!” https://twitter.com/Teeparker8/status/1232129067719307269…

Because Bernie knows how to win.
Because he wants to win not for himself, but for the ideals and changes this country and the world needs at this stage of history.

Not Me, US.

My Letters to a friend for “Why Bernie Sanders”, “Why against Trump and centrist Democratic candidates (including Elizabeth Warren!!!)”

I had this informal email conversation on democratic primary elections and candidates that I am feeling to share with my readers. Hope it helps for the right cause that I believe in.


Hi Carolyn,

    Glad to hear back from you. I left California and moved back to Indiana to finish my degree. I may be back next year and if I do, I would like very much to hang out with you guys, playing frisbee and stuff. My position that “Only a progressive can win against Trump”- you are right on that. And I will emphasize that again. A centrist, corrupt establishment tactics won’t work against the radical right, “will do anything, any crime no matter what to win” Trump base and right wing politicians. To defeat corrupt, evil Trump, you need the honest, truthful, street fighter like Bernie. Don’t trust polls, polls reflect what the total population of the country think at a time. Election doesn’t happen that way.. election happens state by state.. gradually increasing the momentum of the winner. So, basically democratic candidates who can not win the early swing states, will not win against Trump. And also, democratic candidate who does not appeal to a portion of Trump voters, black, latin, diverse voters, can not win against Trump. Candidate who can not energize people with their rhetoric to get out and really vote (specially the young people) will not win against Trump. Warren’s base is highly educated white population (like I guess you and many Californian democrats!). So, based on this ideas that I said, I firmly think only Bernie can win. I also think Yang is a good candidate who is now 4th and has real solution. But I am doubtful about Warren (and Yang, because he may not attract establishment democrats) because of her centrist policy, “will get along with the establishment, play along” strategy, because of her lies of being a native american (Pocahontas!) while getting into Harvard, because of her weak foreign policy (she just voted for Trump’s military budget), because of her taking money from corporations, pacs during general election and also channeling her corporate senate stage money now in the primary while claiming she is only running a grassroot movement like Bernie etc. Also the identity politics (vote because she will be the first woman!!) is not gonna hold either this time. But of course Warren will make a good president (way better than everybody else but Bernie) but she will ultimately be someone like Obama who wanted to do a lot of good things. And this country needs more, because it’s literally bleeding. And you truly need changes like FDR brought to this country to fight back the extreme inequality and extreme corporatist culture.
I would highly recommend to watch this video on Warren: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkzRURcRbkY
Anyway. My frustration is.. I am not a US citizen and I am not gonna vote. I hate Trump, I dislike warren because of their foreign policies. My interest in US politics come mainly from two standpoints- foreign policy and climate change. US is powerful and if they can’t fix their own democracy and if they can’t change their policy and strategies to fix climate crisis, this world is screwed. And that’s why I care to have a US president who understands and have humanistic values and against corporate greed. And this shift is needed all across the globe. Look what happened in UK, Boris Johnson, turned into UK prime minister, now pushing for Brexit. I am pretty sure.. it’s happened because of the rise of Trump. This right wing monstrous rise across the globe need to stop. Again.. my frustration is.. most americans are not educated enough on most of the policies and details of what’s going on domestically and internationally. And that’s why they elect someone like Trump! Because Americans vote someone based on whether they personally like them or not!!! riddiculous.
Have great days. See you.
🙂

Hi, Andy.

Your position that only a progressive can win against Trump is unusual. We
shall see. I hope that a progressive *can* win, but I’m not convinced yet.
Eric and I were just looking at the polls showing that 46% of the country
still approves of Trump, and asking each other, “Who ARE these people!?”
We are stepping up our efforts to get democrats to vote.

I’m also not sure how much a person’s debating skills matter; not that
many people watch the debates. But I do agree that Biden isn’t great at
expressing himself at this point; maybe he’s slipping in his old age.

Have you left town already? I thought I might see you again at frisbee and
lunch to continue discussions…

Hey Carolyn,
    Thanks for your email.
    Yes, you are right. Warren specifically is not taking large sum of money from corporations. My criticism was not specifically directed towards Warren. It was more towards Pete and others. And also you will have to look not just the campaign money, rather their previous links and associations.
    I don’t have much against Warren. I would like her to be even president. In fact, I want Bernie/Warren or Warren/Bernie together as president and VP.
    I don’t think anyone but a progressive (Bernie/Warren) can win against Trump, given that ultimately democrats will have to win midwest swing states like Obama/Biden won in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_United_States_presidential_election#Results_by_state). For the same reason, established democrats think Biden may win.. but Biden can not because he is super bad at debates and he has multitude of issues with african americans, trade related issues etc. And I don’t think Warren can win there either. So, ultimately it seems to me only Bernie has the capability to win there and ultimately overturn Trump.
    Watch this recent video too:

    Thank you.
Andy.

Another thing I want to add.. the biggest critique against Warren is that “both Tulsi & Bernie have (opposed) every military budget increase while Warren has (supported) it every time”. Warren will be as bad as Hillary Clinton in terms of foreign policies. But she will be as good as Bernie in terms of domestic policies. So, ultimately, who was right suited for every aspect.. comes down to Bernie. The only issue is his age and I think Tulsi can make a great VP. Anyway, I am a progressive and I do think only progressives can win against Trump.. no corporate dems like Harris, Pete and Biden have any freaking chance.. where US is right now. Thanks.

Andy.

Just saw this donor related video

But being said that, I think Warren can change. But as you know, past always haunts..

Hi, Andy.

After we talked about this at lunch post-ultimate-frisbee, I looked at the
OpenSecrets site myself. It’s why I asked where you were getting your
information about these candidates’ donors. Then you sent me the link to
the web site that seemed to contradict what you’d said. There must be
something I’m missing. I thought you said something about Harris and
Warren being beholden to big corporations or oil or something like that.
