i’m under the impression that la riva is better but that the greens have better ballot access and a much better chance of hitting the 5% national vote threshold for future federal funding

Easiest prediction in the world:

Trump is re-elected when Sanders supporters decide to either stay at home on election day or write-in their pet goldfish.

obviously biden is going to lose so it’s dumb to even bother with “vote blue no matter who” nonsense. so what can you do to push the party left? help the greens hit 5% nationally. create alternatives for progressive voters so that liberals are forced to campaign for their vote or face certain defeat.

if it’s so easy then why in the world would the party still nominate biden? do they want to lose?

Because the Dems have had an identity issue since 2016 and have done nothing to address it since.

There are 26 Republican governors, 53 Republican senators and 196 Republican congress people out there. None of them were good enough and the GOP settled on a former Democratic donor, con-man and generally just a piece of poo human being as their nominee.

Since most Sanders supporters view Biden as being as electable as Hillary, I guess the only question you need to ask yourself is do you want Biden or Trump to continue fugging you over? At least, in my opinion, if it's Biden, it's within my party affiliation and I can do something about it.

this is where we see things differently. if biden wins (he won’t, don’t worry) it actually makes it less likely to do anything about it. it strengthens the position of corporate liberals in their fight against better things and a better future for young voters. if he loses then the people who still believe in electoralism can at least try again in 2024. can’t if biden wins in 2020. also there is reason to believe that a biden administration would govern to the right of trump, and not just because he is clearly to trump’s right on certain key issues.

Trump is lying about a pandemic and gutted federal response   
 

honestly if Biden cannot beat him now there is a much bigger problem in our country then senior Fox News watchers. 
 

But he does need a young(er) dynamic VP that stands obviously to his left.

How can anyone say four more years of Trump is the best possible outcome?

I just can't see it.  I'd rather four years of Biden's conservative democratic (corporate) with at least a stable hand and pulling in knowledgeable and qualified leadership than another four years of Trump attempting to rip the country from the hands of the American people and turning it over to his buddies and suck ups.

That's just a disagreement I guess some of us are bound to have.

Here’s to hoping Bernie or bust folks are as wrong about the general election as they were about what Bernie’s turnout would be.
