Credit Where Due

I have to give a ton of credit to Bernie Sanders. Don't get me wrong, I don't "feel the Bern". In fact, even the remote possibility that he could become President scares the bleep out of me.

But the fact is, he holds a core belief that he will not compromise and he will never stop until there is nothing left to be done. His beliefs are wrong. They have been tried too many times and failed to have any hope for success in the future. They just go against fundamental human nature.

Russia, Cuba, most lately, Venezuela have all collapsed under socialism and the citizens suffer while the elite masters thrive. Bernie has never worked in the private sector. He has never drawn a paycheck that wasn't from a government entity. In spite of that, he claims to have the knowledge to run the most complicated country in history. I don't think so.

That having been said, he has, almost single handedly, taken on the self proclaimed queen of the Democrat party. He has knocked her crown askew and drawn blood. His young foolish, I want it for free, followers have joined him and turned his campaign into a formidable force.

He has thrown the Clinton campaign so far off course that her behavior has become antic. She cackles, She barks like a dog. She gets increasingly shrill. First she'll debate anytime, then she won't debate. She tries out new catch phrases with the determination of a diva in a shoe store. And she isn't even in the main event yet.

The system is rigged. With the super-delegates in the way, Bernie can't win. His only possible hope is if the FBI primary takes her out of the race. But that is probably rigged, too. He plans to take the fight to the convention floor. At his age he has waged a war that many younger men couldn't survive. 

Bernie has an end game. To do what he has done, he must have. He is a force of nature and he will make that force felt at the Democrat convention. He deserves credit where credit is due.
