I was an avid, if not rabid, Sanders supporter from the first speech I heard from him at a rally in Kissimmee, Fl.
I supported his campaign in ways I had never dreamed I would….phone calls, cash, campaigning….you know? The usual stuff ordinary people do when their values resonate with a candidate.
After watching this dumpster fire of elections unfold, I came to a similar conclusion as other responders…
Sanders is simply not a “democrat.”
It was unreasonable to believe or expect those fuckers in that party to embrace him, for many reasons, some of which make no sense and for reasons associated with $$.
Using the same reasoning, repugnants would also reject a candidate with a platform similar to Sanders. And they have probably also manipulated elections and screwed their constituents, with or without the KY.
They all simply lack the will, decency and chutzpah to change in any meaningful way….
