Sen. Bernie Sanders has decided to change his party affiliation back to Independent after running as a Democrat the last nine months. Some see this as just a name change as Sanders have caucused with Democrats over 98 percent of the time he was in the Senate.
So many people were hoping he was going to even the scales between the people who get out of bed to go to work and the people who sit around stoned all day thinking there so put upon by the wealthy. What a pathetic group of individuals wanting to make working people pay for their laziness. The democrat party is the party of the irresponsible feeding off the hard work of others; Bernie was their king.
The nomination was barely sealed up at the Democratic National Convention before Bernie Sanders, who had campaigned against Hillary Clinton for the party’s nod, went back to being an Independent.
Sanders, who considers himself, officially, an Independent in Congress because his views lean further left than the Democratic party’s platform, caucuses with Democrats. But until declaring an intention to run for the presidency in 2015, he had rarely, if ever, identified as a member of the Democratic Party (he’s been in politics since 1979).
And now, despite pleading with his base to support Hillary, even though they’re concerned that she’s too moderate, Sanders will return to Vermont and his seat in the Senate, and he’ll do it with no official party affiliation.
Sanders has struggled all along with whether to call himself a Democrat, even ducking the question of his party affiliation, raised by local Vermont media, just days after he declared. He later tried to reinforce that he was, indeed, a Democrat.
Sanders was never a Democrat; He has always identified himself as an independent.He just happens to vote with the Democrats; Everyone knows he’s a socialist/Communist…same thing.
Sanders should have never been allowed to run as a Democrat as he has also classified himself as an independent socialist. But then again, they needed someone to make Hillary look more moderate, and Bernie got burned.
