Bernie Sanders and the Democratic Party

I am not overly enthusiastic about Bernie Sanders. I think he's more right — a lot more — than anyone else running for President, but he's wrong about a lot of other stuff (never mind communism or even socialism, he's wrong even about what I consider bog-standard progressive capitalist liberal stuff). If he actually runs in the general election, as the Democratic Party nominee or otherwise, I'll vote for him. I've even thrown him a few bucks, mostly because fuck Clinton.

However, even if I were to agree with him completely, even if he were an actual communist (and he's not even a real socialist), I will not join the Democratic Party to vote for him in the primaries, just as I would not join the Republican Party to vote for his nomination.

The Democratic Party has utterly, completely, absolutely lost my trust. Fuck the Democratic Party. Fuck Clinton, both of them. Fuck Obama. Fuck these triangulating neoliberal welfare-destroying union-busting embezzler-coddling drone-bombing police-murder-apologist Guantanamo-torturing assholes. Both the Democratic and Republican Parties are about corporations fucking us in the ass; the only difference between them is that the Democrats are oh-so-sorry they can't use any lube. (The Republicans are buying up sandpaper: "This is supposed to hurt, scumbags.")

Bernie Sanders is a "radical" not because he doesn't want the plutocracy to stop ass-raping the people — he's down with that — he's a "radical" because he actually wants to use the lube. And because of that, he has zero chance at the Democratic Party nomination.

I wouldn't vote for Clinton if she were running against the zombie corpse of Ronald Reagan with cyborg sociopath Dick Cheney as his running mate and my vote would swing the election. Because fuck you: if you're going to dry-rape me in the ass, don't insult me by shedding crocodile tears about it. Do it with some fucking pride.

I won't get the chance, but with the goddamn curtains closed, I would vote for Sanders' sorry welfare-capitalist ass: lube is better than sandpaper.

But I absolutely will not put my name, in front of God and everybody, on the Democratic Party rolls, not even for the 30 seconds it would take me to vote for Sanders' nomination.

  1. Thanks, maestro.

    I'm just hoping that enough ex-Democrats agree.
