What would have happened if BERNIE had accomplished hijacking Dems instead of Trump hijacking GOP?


And what if Bernie was in office now instead of Trump? He came close to pushing Hillary out - either because of white male misogyny that seems to still be an issue; or because they actually wanted free universal healthcare & college for everyone. Same with Trump voters, some had real reasons to vote for him & some just had spiteful attitudes. How do you think the country would have responded? Personally, because I come from a conservative Christian home, I believed Trump's militant supporters who they said they would have responded with guns if Hillary won. What if Bernie had caused the upset?

    Agreed, should be fun. I'm hoping discussion from a harmless angle on the election will inspire different responses than the fighting. Hillary could have campaigned differently. Misogyny was also prevelant. White men made SURE she didn't win.

    That is the thing I keep trying to get across to people - just bcuz we voted for Obama, doesn't mean we're all raging liberals. I've always voted on both sides of the isle (Reagan, Bush1) & so do many other people. Labels have been really harmful

    Thats why I don't commit to either side. I'm not sure I could vote 4 Bernie - the same way many GOPers had a hard time voting 4 Trump. Obama hijacked the Dems similarly (but with more support) in 2008. 3rd term for people's pick. Does GOV hear?
