The difference is, once Bernie got blown out of the primary, a lot of liberals like myself heeded his advice and reluctantly pulled the HRC lever in the POTUS elections.

Today, it looks as if the RNC is intent on CANCELING the 2020 primaries altogether.

RAW STORY

You know, seeing as how that rotten little homunculus Steven Miller has been poisoning every single compromise offer to reopen the government and end the shutdown, and seeing as how he appears to now be the only adviser who still has Trump's ear, is it possible that Steven Miller might also be the driving force behind pushing the RNC up against the wall and demanding total fealty by canceling the 2020 primaries?

Don't forget, one of his first acts of office was to intone that "the powers of the President shall not be questioned".



I mean, that comment, coming as it did from that dead-eyed sophomoric little toady, even eclipsed Karl Rove's heel clicking by a mile:



Quote:
"We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you are studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors, and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."


My point is, a lot of conservatives will refuse to vote for Trump now that this stunt got pulled. Some inventive conservatives will run as third party, and they will siphon off enough votes to cause Trump to be utterly destroyed.
