I’ve decided to use my option in our state to vote in the Democrat primary – for Bernie Sanders. THAT’S NUTS, you’re going to say. Read on.
The Dems AND the Repubs have left Bernie’s “socialism” and his self-damning history alone so far. IF Bernie wins the nomination, and IF (and a bit of a gamble “if”) the Republicans go after his socialist history (honeymoon to the USSR, strong support of the Sandinistas and Daniel Ortega, and some of the stands he’s taken in Congress), I don’t THINK he’s electable. So, I’m going to do what I can to help him get the nomination, at least, and then hope he loses. I’m pretty much to the point that I consider a vote for any of the Republicans in March as a totally wasted vote anyway. So I’ll vote for the weaker of two evils on the Democrat side, and see what’s available in November.
