Listen up, peasants. We are getting a little tired of repeating ourselves.
Bernie can't/won't win. It's not possible, in the exact same way that you can't have universal health care or a pause in our endless wars of choice.
It's absolutely bonkers that you even have the nerve to think you could have things that most of the rest of the world take for granted.

Democracy does not mean merely that we hold elections. Communists had elections. Election campaigns are not the sum total of democracy. Democracy means the elected government obeys the expressed preferences of the electorate. We don't have that anymore. See [EVIDENCE OF DEMOCRACY FAILURE] below.
The ability of the citizens of the US to affect political change by electoral means ended with the 1980 election, when the CIA intervened in the electoral process (The October Surprise).
