Bernie Sanders supporter: United Democrats can win election

Sedona AZ – The following is a letter to the SedonaEye.com editor:

Dear Editor,

Please accept this letter below for publication. Thank you for an interesting and informative newspaper – I was glad to find the Sedona Eye – I have family down your way.

United we stand.

History and common sense tell us that when the weak stand together, they can resist the powerful.

Our less privileged fellows who lack basic human needs – healthcare, economic equality, a secure future – need us to stand with them. They support candidates who hear their unmet needs and champion true equality, making the bold claim that such needs are human rights. Should we stand with them? Or should we hedge our bets to protect our own situation, and opt for something supposedly safer – but which leaves our fellows behind?

Senator Bernie Sanders insists that everyone – regardless of their income or position in life – should have full access to a decent life. This includes comprehensive healthcare; education without burdensome debt; freedom from scarcity (a living wage); safety from terror and discrimination; decent housing; and justice free from predatory imprisonment.

Bernie’s proposals reflect an ethical standard that values every single human being. His commitment to a just world challenges us to examine our own values. Shall we join him in affirming that we can act ethically? Or will we once again abandon our fellows who depend on our loyalty to finally have their needs addressed?

United behind either candidate, Democrats will absolutely win the presidency this November. We are being persuaded to accept less for our fellows, told that it’s the safer route. But the fact is that we are safer, stronger, and more successful when we stay true to our values by standing with our less privileged friends.

Yours truly,

Kirby MacLaurin

    Bernie is an old communist. Any American voting for Bernie is pro Russian and pro Chinese governments. Don’t ever speak to me again Democrats about pro Russia Trump hoax,it was proven false by Democrats, because you all were and are the real snakes from the Russian grasslands. You know what disgusts me more about the Bern, he’s got 3 homes, wealthier than most of you, never did a hard days labor in his entire life, been paid by the government every day he sat in office, and thinks he’s had it bad in America. He’s rotten to the core.

    I’m saddened by how the children and grandchildren of the greatest generation forgot our history. I’m saddened by how the children and grandchildren of Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iran, Cuba and others forgot our history. I see that picture of John Kennedy and that man saw things differently, and he appointed his brother to be the Attorney General. No President dared before or since and every President had his own personal advisors that were family and friends – why are they different from you? For fun I asked four high school students from Sedona if they knew who JFK was and two had no idea to even try and guess, one said “he a basketball player” and the other said it was an airport. Good job teachers and parents.

    Perhaps, if it was 1988, and the gaffe-prone governor of Mass, Mike Dukakis, were running. At this point, and it was about then I departed the party, I knew they had become idealogically possessed by the left, in the same vein as Lyndon Johnson. Bernard Sanders is a committed Marxist Socailist, even if confined to the gulag himself, will preach the holy eulogy of whatever befits the state, at the expense of the individual person.

    I’m a Tulsi Gabbard voter. I’m a Real Democrat. Put partisan politics aside. Stop with this sickening of the country. No China travelers. No Asian travelers. Give aid to those who need it most.

    @writer and commenters

    Our party reflects national party politics of old decrepit men and women in poor health and signs of dementia, like Sanders and Biden and even Warren and Hillary, sadly women who can’t speak for lying and Joe has dementia clearly and plainly and isn’t up to campaigning, let alone governing. Joe stood up for his never did well son at the cost of his truthfulness. You think Joe didn’t reap a big chunk of those dollars? Don’t be asses for the sake of being asses.

    A false flag for VP that seals the fate of the country seems to be the conversation lately. We can’t afford as a country to elect Joe or Bernie. We can’t afford to elect any Democrat running at this time because they loudly and clearly have been standing with Bernie and Joe at any cost to our country. They frighten me and should be frightening you. You better hope we right our leaning tower of a party because it no longer reflects but a few politically frightening radicals wanting us to be another Russia or China. No thanks. I want my freedoms and I’ll accept other peoples freedoms like owning a limited register of guns and ammunition responsibly with extensive background checks and waiting periods, and having abortions that don’t kill humans who can live outside the womb.

    Let me say something about abortions here. You step over the line with abortions and it is clearly murder. Let’s be reasonable that science knows when it’s a viable lifeform and accept it, to do or be less means we aren’t good people and we aren’t a good society. If you can’t stand someone getting murdered with a gun, then don’t justify murdering a baby by saying it’s your right to decide and murdering them with medicine. All of you pro abortion at any term need to establish charities that support the unwanted babies born, not advocate for their murder. To be pro gun does not mean at any cost. To be pro abortion does not mean at any cost. There are limitations that don’t have to take away the freedom of choice. I’m beginning to see a Nazi like pro abortion stance and it has begun to seep over into euthanasia for the elderly and mentally challenged. Sadly the way to stamp this out is to not vote for the party candidates, let’s send a message that next election time we need quality not quantity.

  10. Dave, VOC says:

    Democrats tried to save themselves when they realized they were now Russian and Chinese communists supporters because that’s what the Bern was about.

  11. Gov. Klobuchar husband very ill with coronavirus says:

    Klobuchar, a former 2020 presidential candidate husband quite ill. After a persistent temperature and a “bad, bad” cough, Bessler began coughing up blood, Klobuchar said, prompting him to get a coronavirus test and a chest X-ray.
    He checked into a hospital in Virginia and “now has pneumonia and is on oxygen but not a ventilator,” Klobuchar said.
