Bernie Sanders Not Stumping For Democrats. Who can blame him?

Now the Democratic Party seems to be blaming Bernie Sanders because he is not out stumping for the various Democratic candidates running for office around the country. Can anyone blame him, especially after the way he was treated? As a divorce supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders, I have to say that I don’t blame him one damn bit. Who else would want to jump on the bandwagon of the party that had insulted them or treated them as badly as the Democratic Party has Bernie Sanders? He probably doesn’t want to get involved with a corrupt political machine, which is what the Democratic Party has allowed itself to become.

Hopefully, the Democratic Party will stop acting like a political machine and become a party of the people as they use to. Hopefully, with the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz as chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), some of this corruption and machine style politics will end. After the recent leaking of emails by WikiLeaks, it should be very obvious to anyone that the entire Democratic primary process had been rigged from the start, and party leaders had succeeded in getting the candidate the DNC wanted from the very beginning of the process, Hillary Clinton.

If the Democratic Party doesn’t stop pandering to special interests and accepting “dark money,” they will be put in the same category as the GOP; corrupt and pandering to big capital. They run the risk of alienating the rank-and-file workers that they use to represent.

I don’t know whether anyone else noticed or not, but during the entire Democratic convention, Bernie Sanders barely cracked a smile. I could just see the indignation on his face and his disapproval of the whole proceeding. As far as I’m concerned, the entire Democratic national convention was a total farce. It reeked of bad script writing and behind closed doors manipulation. The fix was in, and it had worked. However, Bernie Sanders did the gracious gesture of putting an end to the roll call vote and conceded to Hillary Clinton. Personally, I don’t know whether or not I could’ve been that gracious, especially if I had been treated by the Democratic National Committee like he was.

Even though it should be obvious by now that Hillary Clinton is far more qualified than Donald Trump to be president, the election will be closer than anyone expects. Even though I feel that Bernie Sanders is more qualified than Hillary Clinton to lead this nation, I plan on voting for her, mostly to do my part in keeping Donald Trump out of the White House, which I honestly feel would be nothing less than a total disaster.

Now, the Democratic Party actually has the gall to play some type of blame Bernie Sanders because he hasn’t bent over backwards to work for the party? Like I said to before, can anyone really blame Bernie Sanders for anything?
