Bernie-or-Bust is an inaccurate moniker. What the movement should be called is Bernie-or-Burn.
This is not a negative statement as I believe that the conviction to vote with moral standards and your heart is not negative.
But Bernie-or-Burn is a more accurate label
Bear with me.
The over-riding sentiment of Bernie-or-Bust is that they are disillusioned with the system and 4 more years of Obama (Hillary) is not worth the effort of going to polls. Like it or not there is nothing that you can say in a free Democracy against this opinion. You don’t have to agree, but you have to respect it, or admit that you are not a free democrat.
Against all odds (Perhaps even a greater shock that the Bernie movement) is the rise and domination of Trump. Unless you are a mental child (the average adult American) you can recognize that not only is Trump anti-establishment but also a complete joke as a political choice for “leader of the free world”.
Without the support of the majority of Progressives and Bernie-or-Bust Democrats Hillary has no chance of beating Donald (Yes, Murica is that dumb). And she will not get it. She does not inspire and is not well liked. Conversely, the majority of Progressives and Bernie-or-Bust Democrats will either not vote or go Trump.
Why? Because a Trump Presidential cluster-fuck will be better than 4 more years of no change. Consider it a shock from a defibrillator. Unpleasant for sure, but better in the long run.
So until Rome burns there can be no reconstruction.
The roof is on fire, we don’t need no water let the motherfucker burn… Bern motherfucker Burn!
