Vetting Bernie: A Resource of The People's View in Regard to the Candidacy of Bernie Sanders.
[Author’s Note: The People’s View is a political blog in support of pragmatic, progressive, democratic ideals. We were formed during President Barack Obama’s presidency as a way to counter the narrative that President Obama wasn’t doing enough for liberal values and that he was selling out to corporate influence. As a result, this blog was established as a way to unite those in favor of incremental change as well as those who understood that the political process takes time and effort to ensure even the smallest victory. The authors of this blog identify themselves with the Democratic Party and a number of them have worked on local, statewide, and even national campaigns. They are all unpaid authors and contribute simply to engage the community and to foster positive discussion about the Democratic Party and its politics.
The People’s View provides ample space to discuss local, statewide, and national candidates for political office. From April of 2015 onward, there was much spirited debate about who would be the most qualified candidate to carry on President Barack Obama’s legacy. Several of our members would have easily been ridin’ with Biden had he chosen to run. By the fall of 2015, our community was coalescing around Hillary Clinton, especially as she began to assert herself in early debates as someone who would fight to carry on the policies of Barack Obama. As this happened, we simultaneously saw Bernie Sanders begin to openly attack and undermine President Obama’s legacy and accomplishments. The authors of this site were deeply disturbed when Sanders began parroting Karl Rove-inspired talking points in his attacks against both President Obama and Hillary Clinton. By early 2016, the authors of this site had enough and began a series of essays designed to thoroughly look at Bernie Sanders’ rhetoric and, more importantly, his record. At a time when Sanders had a free pass with the media, we felt we owed it to the American people to be truthful about Sanders’ record.
Here, you will find an archive of the work that The People’s View authors have compiled over the last 4 years. These articles are thoroughly sourced, using hundreds of links to reputable online sources. This information is all publicly available; we have no investigatory journalists nor access to inside information. Much of what the authors have written about has been public knowledge, especially in Sanders’ home state of Vermont. However, the mainstream media has time and time again chosen to ignore Sanders’ record in favor of creating a horse race in 2016 and keeping Sanders around for the “Democrats in Disarray” talking point since the 2016 election. The authors of this site have released this information today as once again, Bernie Sanders seems intent on working against the Democratic Party for his own personal gain in very much the same way he did in 2015.
We encourage everyone who cares about not only the Democratic Party but the country as a whole to share this article far and wide. Our media has not learned anything from 2016 but the more we, the people, have access to this information the more likely it is that Sanders’ candidacy fails to get off the ground. We cannot afford to have Bernie Sanders once again infiltrate the Democratic Party to inject his own personal vendetta as a way to undermine the party. It is through the sharing of information that we, as the voting public, can have the final say as to whether or not Bernie Sanders has a voice in the 2020 presidential election. Those of us that truly know Bernie Sanders, know that he is unfit to lead. It is only through a resounding loss in 2020 that he will finally hear this message.]
