False Hope

I almost got excited when I read “Bernie Sanders open to running in 2024.” It could go one of two ways. On the one hand, they do say third time’s a charm. On the other, they say if you keep doing the same thing and expecting different results, that’s a sign of insanity, that’s just beating your head against a wall.
If Bernie Sanders runs as a Democrat, they will just screw him again. They haven’t changed. Nobody’s pressured Biden to move to the left. They screwed us about as hard as they could and to pretend they didn’t get away with it is delusional. They totally got away with it.
But, if Bernie were to learn from the experience, ditch the Democrats hard right now and announce he’s running as an independent, get people out canvassing for signatures to get him on the ballot in all 50 states, set up campaign headquarters in all congressional districts (could just be somebody’s home) and encourage progressives to run for congress as independents, right along with him, I believe he could win. His positions are popular. It would be a repeat of the strategy which made him mayor of Burlington. Neither the Democrats or Republicans are popular, so the person in the middle comes out on top.
But then I read the rest of the sentence: Bernie open to run if Biden doesn’t. And thus, hope dies.
