Sanders vs. Trump: Another Round of Lesser of Two Evils
Unlike the 2016 election where if one wanted the world to end in a matter of weeks they’d vote for Herself, but just like the 2012 presidential election, it will be lesser of 2 evils in the unlikely event Sanders is allowed to be the democrat nominee.
Trump – cutter of social safety nets
Sanders – opener of U.S. borders
The issue of illegal immigration and the desire for open borders on the part of the globalists is taken very seriously by a significant portion of those who are sympathetic to the messages Trump and Sanders were giving during their 2016 campaigns.
Sanders’ strength in 2016 was he maintained a laser focus on “kitchen table” issues.
Now, Sanders has caved in to the misguided progressive wing and to the fake news media which blamed Obama’s border security policies on Trump, from the cages on down. His caving is a politically calculated move that goes against the instincts he displayed throughout his career prior to 2017.
A major weakness of his in ’16 and ’20 was his inability to articulate any semblance of a foreign policy agenda, other than saying during this cycle that he wants to redirect some military spending to climate change spending and that the MIC is afraid of him, whatever that means, and I highly doubt they are.
I read the foreign policy positions on his website which have almost zero depth. Compared to Tulsi’s positions, it’s night and day; she outlines very specifically how she is anti war in multiple sections; Sanders, not so much at all.
