Today’s Thought:

I can think of no greater waste of one’s vote than to cast it for someone who is not running and to be sure it is not even counted.

Bernie has said he will support Hillary if she is nominated. In doing so, Sanders is motivated by the long term benefits of the Democratic party being the vehicle for his political revolution. While an independent or third party run would provide short term enthusiasm, there is little to no likelihood such a campaign would be successful. More importantly, he would have to surrender the considerable influence he presently commands as a Democrat.

The best case scenario (aside from Sanders being nominated and elected, of course) for the future of Bernie’s revolution would be that Hillary Clinton is defeated for president in November.

Consider: Half of all Democrats in the country support a democratic socialist for president, an unbelievable accomplishment of the Sanders campaign. The revolution has achieved half of its objective to change the political system.

It may take several election cycles to fully transform the Democrats into a democratic socialist party.

Fewer, if Bernie is not obstructed by a President Hillary.



Author’s Notes:

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

  1. Once again, I follow your reasoning, but I don’t think you’re taking into account the potential harm that is inherent in a Trump presidency, even a 1-term one. Each day brings fresh evidence of his irrational and hostile nature — you don’t come to grips with that at all. You need to factor his temperament into your calculations. I for one don’t want to give him free rein to indulge these behaviors.


    • Trump will hardly have “free rein” as president. He will be constrained by a divided Congress. And the benefit to progressive candidates and the Democratic party will be profound. Democrats will sweep the 2018 midterm elections. We will carry statehouses and legislative chambers in sufficient number to control reapportionment after the 2020 Census. We will in all probability nominate a presidential candidate in 2020 who is left of Bernie, and elect her (or him).
