8. Cult, Sir


If you do not like the term, that is no concern of mine. It is an accurate description of the personal devotion a hard core of followers displays for 'Bernie'. If you are not one who shares this degree of devotion, you are neither being addressed nor described. But certainly people who declare they will not vote, or will vote for the cheap thug Trump, should 'Bernie' not be our Party's nominee, are properly seen as devotees of a cult, dedicated to the person of St. Bernard of Burlington rather than to any attainable political goal.

"From Bernieís perspective, dropping out of a race once you have no chance of winning is peculiar behavior that can only be explained by the work of a hidden hand. For most politicians, though, it is actually standard operating procedure. Only Sanders seems to think the normal thing to do once voters have made clear they donít want to nominate you is to continue campaigning anyway."

"When things are not called by their right names, what is said cannot make sense. When what is said does not make sense, what is planned cannot succeed. When plans do not succeed, people become uneasy. When people are uneasy, punishments do not fit crimes. When punishments do not fit crimes, people cannot know where to put hand or foot."
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
