Young Democrats don’t have much to hope for. Way back in 2008, a young senator by the name of Barack Obama tantalized a new voter base with promises of change. He was able to inspire many Americans who either gave up on our system or were coming to it for the first time. He symbolized what America could be under new, fresh, invigorating leadership.
Oh, what a difference eight years make.
After two disastrous terms as president, Obama symbolizes everything wrong with our government. The Democrats did not herald a new era of prosperity, but helped bring in greater economic woes, weaker industry, and unprecedented terrorist threats.
The Democrats had very little hope for 2016, only the same tired candidates. Perhaps that’s why so many flocked to Bernie Sanders. They saw him as their only option against Hillary Clinton and—despite his flaws and dangerous agenda—buoyed him.
Then, despite his momentum and support, he departed from the race and handed it over the Crooked Hillary. His supporters are still asking why. We may have found out.
From Conservative Tribune:
The answer to that question may surprise many people. Buzzfeed reported that a memo from the Sanders campaign showed just how much to cost to get Sanders to give up his challenge: one airplane.
That’s right, the leader of the socialist revolution, a self-proclaimed outsider, an environmental activist who thinks global warming is a greater threat to mankind than Islamic terrorism and a man who everyone said stuck to his principles sold out his millions of devoted disciples for a big plane that pollutes the atmosphere and a couple speaking slots.
“Sen. Bernie Sanders will back Hillary Clinton in exchange for speaking opportunities at fall campaign rallies, a fully-funded campaign aircraft and a share of the credit for her hoped-for election, according to a negotiating memo obtained by BuzzFeed News and dated two days before the June 7 California primary,” Breitbart reported.
The man so many progressives thought would finally bring change to our country turned out to be just another greedy politician. The rest of us aren’t surprised; Bernie’s been a government flunky for decades. He’s no different than anyone else in Washington. All Hillary had to do was wave a few goodies in his face and he’d roll over and beg.
It’s sad. The party that once symbolized reform, progress, and Civil Rights is now a corrupt cabal of evil insiders. Their promises of change and liberalism have devolved into privileges for the highest bidder.
Now just imagine another four more years under that kind of leadership.
