Bernie Sanders vs Ted Cruz

Posted by Troy on 26th July 2016 in Current Events, Political

Bernie Sanders betrayed his supporters and “philosophies” by supporting Hillary Clinton.  Hillary Clinton is the antitheses of what Bernie professed.  No one exemplifies Wall Street and trade deals like Hillary.  Not to mention the crooked deals, the email scandal, and the rigged primary.  Of course, many people would say that I’m just playing favorites.  They might ask why I came down on Cruz for not endorsing Trump but I am coming down on Bernie for supporting Hillary.  So here’s the difference:

Trump won.

Trump won straight up.  If anything, he was able to win despite the deck being stacked against him, Hollywood being against him, commentators being against him, and Republican leadership against him.  Cruz lost fair and square.  If anything, the aforementioned items gave Cruz a leg up, but he still lost.  Cruz also agreed to support the winner.  I will agree that Trump’s personal attacks may have made it so that Cruz could not support Trump.  However, the honorable thing to do in that case is to just not show up, which is de facto not supporting Trump but would at least give the appearance of not going back on his word.

Bernie lost in a rigged system.  You have the DNC colluding with news media to assist Hillary Clinton.  You have Debbie scheduling debates at times when no one with a life would be home to watch it.  At every turn, Bernie was maligned.  Even when he was still in the running, the DNC was pushing him out.  In all cases, the DNC sought to control the direction of the election and choose their candidate.  He also never agreed to support Hillary.

What people don’t realize is that Bernie is not the leader of Bernie supporters.  Bernie has given them a choice: reject Bernie or become hypocrites.  I think that Bernie supporters realize that.  Bernie has sold his voting block.  We don’t know what the price is, but Bernie supporters aren’t stupid.

I don’t know if Bernie supporters will support Trump, but I think at least some cannot possibly support Hillary.  Doing so makes them hypocrites.  I also would be sickened by the DNC’s treatment of them, invoking Bernie’s name like they were invoking Jesus’s name.  “Bernie says,” and they are but puppets on the string.

That’s the difference.

Long Live the Constitution!
