    That's a good question with no easy answer and even fewer solutions.

    Skepticism fostered by propaganda administered by bad faith actors to a certain portion of the masses, lots of people in positions of power thinking they can cash in and take advantage of the situation mainly due to how normally it doesn't affect them, the love of money being the root of all evil, lots of different things.
    Moreover it's not just western civilization, a lot of these things are human weaknesses that can show up anywhere.

    In completely unsurprising news, health insurance company stocks soar after Bernie suspends his campaign. But hey, people have their candidate that was promised to beat Trump!

    But is it excitement from the right kind of people? The kind of people who want and push for actual changes to the system, instead of merely a return to the way things have always been?

    Also, do you not find it contradictory to criticise Sanders for not dropping from the race earlier so people wouldn't need to vote - as if he was responsible for that, instead of, say, the Supreme Court -, but then praise them for doing so anyway in order to vote for Biden?

    Personally, Taiwan's strategy to tackle the virus is good. 3 years and 300W fine is good enough to prevent information from spilling out. So nicely done that I must say they are really part of China.

    No. I mean misinformation is causing plenty of trouble around the world, so making rules to ensure only the government can make statements is better than letting rumors fly. I had to convince my grandparents NOT to stock up food because they heard from our Taiwanese relatives that China is in famine right now. And they have already stocked up to 50 kg of rice.

    no? It’s not contradictory to to say that while I wish they didn’t have to risk their lives, the fact that they were willing to do so gives the lie to any talking point about how Biden can’t drive people to the polls.

    Just seems weird that you keep placing responsbility on Sanders specifically when one could just as easily say Biden should have dropped out, particularly when the actual responsibility lies with neither of them.

    Honestly I sometimes wonder if sanders didn’t hope that Wisconsin delayed it’s primary, he could make it to the debate in April, squeeze out a few more progressive promises from joe and then negotiate his surrender, but after Wisconsin he knew that a month or so of news reporting that people had been willing to risk their safety to vote against him would mean that by April he wouldn’t have any leverage. or if you want to give him the be if it of the doubt, perhaps he believed that no states would hold a vote between now and the aforementioned debate, so when a vote actually did occur he dropped out to save lives, rather like I have been saying would be the moral choice. That’s just an aside though.

    at any rate not to retread old ground but see Biden had already won the primary by Wisconsin. It’s great the voters turned out for him but the hilariously tear inducing tragedy of it is they actually really didn’t need to do so. That’s what’s so stupid you have to laugh so you don’t cry or scream.

    biden shouldn’t drop out to keep people home, because he had already won. Bernie could have dropped out because the only difference between today and a week ago is now sanders and his supporters have acknowledged that.

    saying “well Biden could have dropped out to!” Ignored the reality that by the time Wisconsin had voted it was already true that Biden had won and sanders had lost. It’s not equivalent.

    Sanders obviously can't win considering how people were educated throughout the years. It is easy to sway the public to believe he is socialist, even if he is not.

    Now see that is a rare point we can agree on. In Texas the word socialist is scarier then murder clown zombies

    if you produced a movie called “THEY ARE COMING TO TAKE YOUR GUNS AND YOUR FREEDOMS!!!!”

    we would ban it from stores for being to scary

    Not all socialist ideas are bad, but some avoid it like plague even though it can make your life better. How can you accept the medical insurance ripping you off like that?

    This talking point has no legitimacy. Wisconsin and Supreme Court forced the elections to happen anyway, so Bernie's presence had no impact on people showing up.

    And yes, I still stand by my earlier statement that the DNC could have done something else with regards to Primary voting that didn't require people to show up because of the 2016 court ruling regarding how the DNC can pick its candidate. Sure, the legal/official vote would be one thing, but they could have released a statement that said that it wouldn't use the votes collected by Wisconsin for Primary purposes, citing coronavirus concerns, and instead released some alternative measure (mail-in ballots, online voting, etc) specifically for the Primary. It didn't, and Biden is still on the record for encouraging people to vote in person twice now during a pandemic.

    Bernie: Gives a nice comment about Biden

    CNN: WHY DIDN'T BERNIE GIVE MORE PRAISE TO BIDEN? WHY DIDN'T BERNIE DROP OUT SOONER? WHY DOES BERNIE HATE AMERICA?

    Alright Tobias, have fun belittling this viewpoint yet again. Never mind that former Hillary staff members got caught red handed with a smear Bernie "secret" party after Bernie dropped out. I'll see you in November when Trump wins once again, and your cherished candidate once again smugly condescends Bernie supporters (wrongly again) for not coming out for the lesser of two evils.

    You know that Biden won't win Texas. He won't even win any of the southern states that he had blow-out primary support because those are diehard red states. He'll lose the Rustbelt just like Hillary because Trump will pivot Left on trade, again, because Biden is the worst possible candidate to put against Trump on that issue. Or, more importantly nation-wide, gun right supporters everywhere but the coastal mega cities.
