Would like to think that the Democrat's propensity to steal elections, along with help from MSM, will lead to the total collapse of the party. Sadly though, that entire discussion, just like in 2016, appears to be off the table. Sure hope our independent media sources can push it back on and let us move in a much needed new direction.

...for us all. Face it ...4 more years of Trump with possible wars with Iran and Venezuela - next year?

What's weird is this is a perfect moment for Bernie to push for M4A, promote rent and mortgage strikes, and threaten a general strike if needs are not met. Have his people walk out of the convention otherwise. That's a big ask, but he's the one that offered a revolution. Weakest revolution I've ever seen. Not that I don't appreciate Bernie bringing issues to the table.

Once again too bad...another missed opportunity.

This means four more years of Trump, as Trump will mop the floor with Bye-Done.

And we 99%ers will be better off for it. (Yes, I have no faith in Bye-Done whatsoever.)

please explain how 4 more years of trump is going to better our lot?
assume this is snark, but if you think another trumpet term will benefit us
I would like to see your reasoning. DNC have dropped their shorts to push
a fuddle headed bidet on us. If any and all think this is a benefit to social
needs, we've got another think coming.

It would only benefit us as compared with Bye-Done at the switch.

Buy-Dum is worse for the 99% than Trump. As snoopydawg pointed out here:

Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State got lots of blood on her hands, but Biden was right there beside her voting for the things she did. How many people have lost their homes due to the bankruptcy rules that Biden got put into place? How many people have been hurt by the rulings of Clarence Thomas who Biden is responsible for getting on the Supreme Court?
How many black families went into poverty because their men got thrown into prison because of the crime bill that Biden wrote?

Trump never inflicted this degree of harm on America's working classes.

But please do not misunderstand me: I am indeed well aware that life under either Buy-Dum or Chump downright sucks for all non-rich.

I was under the mistaken impression that contributions reset on an annual basis.

This brings up the question: where should I send the refund? OR? DSA? Individual campaigns?

Rising nails a lot of things that are true before they knew he was dropping out.

You either do with everything you have or you do not. I just watched some of his live speech and he's talking about how bad things are for people right now and congress has to....... Umm Bernie, you know things have been very bad for millions of us for decades.

Why did so many people risk their lives to vote yesterday and stand in hours long lines only to wake up to this?

Hey have you heard who Biden is considering for his cabinet. The CEO of BlackRock the biggest hedge fund in the country that screwed home owners after 9 million lost their homes and jobs........

Looking forward to 4 more years of Trump. I bet Nancy is too.

Joe MBNA Biden - Corporatist, Bankster, anti-M4A, Warmonger. There's no way I could vote for him, I have too much respect for my values. The Democrat party needs to lose again and lose hard. That opens the possibility of a real opposition party to the Republicans. The question now is - stay home, vote Green, or vote for Trump. Right now I'm leaning Trump, strictly as a strategic vote. Although a good Green Party candidate could get my vote.

you have fun playing along with Byedone and Donald the Great. Not my game to participate in anymore.

yeah, I give up on the American people getting what they deserve. All they got is undeserved bullshit.

You will never have, you never had a revolution. And I can't imagine who needs one more than you.

Is that Bernie knows that Joe Biden is not well mentally. Every damn thing that Bernie said was wrong in this country can be laid at Biden's feet. Number one on my list is the bankruptcy bill. All of the other legislation Biden helped get passed or wrote himself are all tied for second place. I bet Bernie got a gander at who Joe will put in his cabinet and he stayed silent on during his speech.

Again he said he would stay in until the convention and again he let millions of desperate people down.

Oh yeah what about the rape accusation Bernie? All the videos of Joe fondling young girls?

Lorraine no one can tell people that they MUST vote for someone. No one owes Biden their vote.

- You just dropped out and gave Trump another win. Republicans will now completely take over. Devastated

- Not sure if it helps but I don't even think Jesus could beat the Dems in their own primary.

Yup..

- Don't campaign for the DNC, no matter what you do they'll still blame you and your supporters for what happens next.

Dow jumps 600 points after Sanders drops out of presidential race

The major averages hit their session highs after Sanders made his announcement. Some of Sanders' policy proposals, including Medicare for All, raised concern among several business owners and investors who feared taxes would go up under his presidency.

Wednesday's news puts former Vice President Joe Biden — who is seen by Wall Street as a more market-friendly candidate — closer to the Democratic nomination.
