Both can stand up better than any other candidate against Trump. So on that count, I’m not worried.
I’d gladly go for Bernie but I’m afraid that he might not be able to stand up to the loony-tunes SJWs he tends to surround himself with. It’s not even about the election. It’s about what happens after. I would be very happy to see a “workers rights, the open borders are a Koch brothers idea” Sanders presidency. But the idea of loonies coming to power and ruling through Bernie is intolerable.
This is very similar to what happened to Trump. All his anti-neoliberal ideas were thwarted completely by the fanatical neoliberals like Ivanka, Kushner and the rest of this crowd. They are young and rich, so how can they be anything else?
Biden doesn’t seem to be surrounded by the same kind of crazies that swarm around Bernie. But he’s such an unexciting candidate. Plus, what is the likelihood that he won’t be the same kind of an eager neoliberal as Obama?
The choice is ultimately between economic and ideological neoliberalism. And it’s not much of a choice because they are two sides of the same coin. One ultimately always leads to the other.
We are choosing between shades of neoliberalism on our side, folks. And of course both these oldsters (and I say this very affectionately because people over 75 are my favorite group after toddlers) are miles better than happy-clappy neoliberal fanatics like Buttigieg. He’s young and hasn’t known anything but neoliberalism, so our only chance for anything even remotely anti-neoliberal is a Methuselah. Nobody else is even capable of understanding what anti-neoliberalism is. There is zero difference between voting for Buttigieg and voting for Ivanka.
