Donald Trump supporters, as well as Republican Party leaders and apparatchiks, are deeply concerned that an independent, third-party run by a real Republican — a real conservative — would launch a challenge against the New York liberal and that it would have the effect of giving the election to another dishonest New York liberal, Hillary Clinton.
But what if 74-year-old socialist Bernie Sanders decides to run his own independent third-party challenge against Hillary Clinton, essentially splitting the Democrat vote in half, creating a path for a conservative candidate to have a real chance?
There are at least six good reasons why Soviet Sanders may launch a third-party challenge to Hillary Clinton
1. Bernie has no loyalty to the Democrat Party
Bernie Sanders isn’t even a Democrat. As a leftist senator from Vermont, Sanders was classified as an “Independent.” He had previously left the Democrat Party which wasn’t communist enough for him — even under Barack Obama — and only rejoined the party to run for president under the Democrat brand.
2. Bernie has an ax to grind with the Democrat Party
The Democrat Party, led by DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has treated Bernie Sanders extremely unfairly by all accounts — refusing to schedule debates when they were perceived to harm Hillary, and seeking to schedule debates when it helped her. Remember the little-watched debates scheduled on Saturday nights of all nights?
In addition, the controversial “Super delegates” in the Democrat Party were in the tank for the pre-selected Clinton from the beginning, leaving many Sanders supporters to believe that the deck was unfairly stacked against him.
3. Bernie supporters hate corrupt Hillary Clinton
Sanders hard-core supporters view Hillary Clinton almost as negatively as Republicans or conservatives do, but for somewhat different reasons, although there is some overlap.
Sanders’ socialist army views Hillary Clinton as in bed with Wall Street, the far left’s favorite whipping boy, and are outraged that she received millions of dollars speaking to companies like Goldman Sachs, who the left views as Satan incarnate.
Also, the left views Hillary Clinton as a warmonger, putting her in the same pro-war category as RINOs John McCain and Lindsey Graham on foreign policy.
4. Bernie’s followers have no allegiance to the Democrat Party
The “Bernie or Bust” movement is gaining steam. Yes, many of those voters will eventually fall in line behind Hillary, given the choice of Trump. However, a decent percentage will actually prove to be “Bernie or Bust” and will hold out to teach the Democrat Party a lesson — that they should actually change their name to the Communist Party USA.
Bernie’s supporters, for the most part, are either naive youth with no history or loyalty to the Democrat Party, or aging, radical leftist 1960’s Bill Ayers hippie-types looking for one last run before they kick the bucket. Might as well go out in flames and to hell with the party.
5. Bernie is already pushing for a contested convention.
On Saturday, Bernie Sanders vowed to keep fighting Hillary all the way to the Democrat National Convention in late July, regardless of how he performs in the remaining state primaries. Even Bernie is “Bernie or Bust.”
“The Democratic National Convention will be a contested convention,” Sanders said on Saturday, predicting Hillary Clinton will be dependent on so-called “superdelegates” who are not bound to her, though they supported her even before the race began.
Sanders contends that the superdelegates could swing to him at the convention.
6. At 74-years-old, this is Bernie’s last hurrah, his last chance for a socialist/communist “revolution.”
Bernie Sanders, who had his honeymoon in the failed Soviet Union, has absolutely nothing to lose by going third-party and dividing the Democrat Party in half. What’s he got to lose, the DNC turning their backs on him? That’s already happened, as evidenced by his long-running feud with DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
They’ve already screwed him over and — I’m sorry — at his age saving himself for a 2020 run is probably not in the cards.
Even Bernie appears to be “Bernie or Bust.”
