“As I have said for many years, I happen not to believe that within the framework of the two-party system, the Democratic Party and Republican Party, that we are going to be able to bring about the real changes in this country that are needed to benefit the vast majority of our people. Essentially, it is my view that the leadership of the Democratic Party and Republican Party are tied to big money interests, and that neither of these parties will ever represent the people in this country who are demanding the real changes that have to take place.” – Bernie Sanders
How Bernie Sanders Can Win the Presidency
Of all the Democrats who will be participating in the primary debates, Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who is standing up for the majority of Americans in an effective way. It will be a strategic positive for him to participate in the Democratic Party debates and give voice to many of the issues that affect Americans most. However, as soon as the third debate is over on December 19, it is strategically vital that he withdraws from the Democratic primary race to run as an independent.
Loyalist Democrats, who are paid well to put partisan party politics above all else, will instinctively dismiss this strategy and do their best to ignore it, or they will go on a reactionary attack. Whatever the case may be, I invite critical and constructive debate. If you really want Bernie Sanders to be the next president, and you put your loyalty to The People above your loyalty to a political party, please hear me out. If you are willing to objectively and strategically think things through, carefully consider the points that will be made throughout this post.
I am fully aware that Bernie has said that he will not run as an Independent and have heard his reasoning as to why he feels running as a Democrat is the best strategy. However, there is a political paradigm shift occurring at a quickening pace, and I’m going to lay out strategic points that will demonstrate why running as an Independent gives the Sanders campaign the best opportunity to succeed.
I’ve analyzed the political landscape because I want to make sure that the energy I’m putting in during this vital election cycle is being used as strategically as possible. If I thought supporting Bernie’s campaign to win the Democratic nomination was the best strategic move, I would be working on his campaign right now. After seriously considering it, I think that Bernie’s efforts to win the DNC nomination are truly counter-productive, as I will explain in detail. However, if he transitions to an Independent or third-party run, I would be inspired to support his efforts, as that would be the best strategic move.
After much analysis, I am strongly advising him to transition to an Independent run immediately after participating in three Democratic debates, and before primary voting begins, for the following reasons…
