Considering that there are too many moderates still running in the Democratic party, I'm scared that the 2020 election would be Bernie vs. Trump.
I think most of you on this website would agree that socialism, at least Bernie's version of it, is a bad bad idea. And I suppose a significant portion of the wso members might disagree, but Trump's protectionist and isolationist crap is a bad bad idea IMO. I mean, look at my username?
But considering that pretty much a lot of young people support Bernie and let's be honest, Bernie is like Trump of the Democratic party - both are populists rambling on about some bat shit crazy ideas that will ruin lots of things for the country (and the world) but oh boy they sound great to some people.
I've met some Trump supporters. They all ramble on and on about their beliefs stating false evidence and calling others unpatriotic if they don't agree. I've met some Bernie supporters. They all ramble on and on about their beliefs stating false evidence and calling everyone dumb and sociopathic if they don't agree. They just don't seem to fucking listen to other opinions. Sample sizes were small but still, I'm noticing a pattern here.
If it comes to Sanders vs Trump, I am gonna lose faith in humanity. And I don't see moderate Democrats dropping out even though there are just too many of them running for the nomination. Biden is probably too pride to drop out. Klobuchar? Idk wtf she does but better drop out soon and let the moderate vote consolidate for Buttgieg.
Oh and it turns out that Bernie is also a protectionist. Maybe I should move to France or Germany or lobby for a law that forces presidential candidates to take an aptitude test in economics, ethics, and general critical thinking.
Anyways, fuck protectionism, fuck populism, fuck the rambling orange haired man, fuck the rambling white haired man, fuck orange hair and white hair supporters for refusing to develop their listening and critical thinking skills. Long live small governments and the free market economy. Lassez-faire with a sprinkle of "you can't do that now because that corrupts the environment or quality of living is now shit" is the way to go.
