Title: President Donald Trump

If Bernie Sanders does not win the 2020 Democratic Nomination; That is what will fracture the Democratic Party. I honestly think Bernie should just form his own party, because the democrats screw him over all the time. Corporate Media and "big money" screws him all the time in favor of Moderate Billionaires like Bloomberg. 

y'all are talking about how the democrats need to choose a moderate candidate, yet republicans won't even consider a moderate candidate of their own. 

American Politics have definitely been pulled to the Right. In other countries like NZ, the Conservative Party here has more in common with the Moderate Democratic Party than the Republican Party.

I'm not a socialist and neither is Bernie. He's a Democratic Socialist. Bernie often gets criticized by many Socialist and Democratic Socialist groups, who don't view him as socialist because Bernie wants to reform capitalism, rather than install a traditional socialist institution. Socialists refer to Bernie as a Social Democrat instead. 

Social Policies have actually worked in most countries in the world. A hybrid between Socialism and Capitalism is common practice in many places. Other developed Countries like New Zealand, Chile, France, Germany, Spain, South Korea, and the UK all have well-funded socialised safety nets for their people. Venezuela failed not solely because it was socialist, but because it had a shitty government and was mismanaged with corruption. It is important to remember that many factors contribute to a failing economy.

Before we throw around the term socialism so loosely, I'd recommend some of y'all actually take a look at some of Bernie's Policies. A common tactic by Conservatives and Corporate Democrats to discredit Bernie, have been to call him a Communist and a Socialist. They pin him as a radical left candidate. As a way of scaring off voters before they even get a chance to research Bernie's actual policies. Really in comparison to global politics Bernie is a Left Leaning Moderate - like me. 

Here's the Bottom line; The Economy is doing well, and better than ever before. ( Before you give all the credit to Trump for the good economy, remember the Democrat that help bring the US into an upswing from the 2008 Recession )

Democratic Socialist Policies will ensure that all citizens will benefit from a good economy, not just the super wealthy. Capitalism works well to spur a lot of wealth quickly and fuel progress, and Socialism works to make sure no one is left behind or exploited. Both have their upsides, and both have their downsides. Unchecked Capitalism is unsustainable, and Pure Socialism can halt progress and development. Democratic Socialism is a hybrid between the two. 

In what ways do you believe some of Bernie's specific policies will fuck us up?

Bernie isn't a socialist. Just because it has the word "socialist" or "social" or "socialism" does not mean it's socialism a la USSR / China / Venezuela. Nazism is National Socialism for example and while it has some aspects of socialism, it is not socialism.
Also, social democracy and democratic socialism are confusingly two different concepts. He calls himself a democratic socialist but also has some of the policies of the former.  See "Real socialists think Bernie is a sellout."

Labels are often meaningless in American politics anyway. His policies are not extreme, especially in the context of other Western countries. His nuclear policies are pretty bad though imo.

Also keep in mind the President doesn't make the laws so it would take a lot of things going wrong for an actual socialist to turn America into a socialist country in 8 years.

Gotta agree with that. One of the things I hate from both sides of the political spectrum is the anti-nuclear stance. Nuclear power as it is now or even better, thorium reactors, is the way of the future. The emissions are minimal compared to other power sources, they are highly consistent in power output, they are safer (deaths/thousand terawatt hour) than every other energy source, and the waste can be managed as long as the government properly funds the project. 

Solar and wind are the more woke power sources but they are incapable of providing the energy we need now and in the future, since they are extremely unreliable. The energy generation depends on the weather, which could mean a shortage of energy. In addition, solar energy must be stored in batteries. Batteries are terrible for the environment and producing more will only make the problem worse.

The Bernie Sanders presidential runs are fundraising for the DNC. Change my mind.

=======

The DOJ under the trump administration has also lost integrity. AG Barr should not have intervened in the case of Roger Stone, and President Trump should be more concerned with defending the rule of law - then protecting someone found guilty of violating it. Several Prosecutors stepped down and resigned over DOJ intervention, which is highly unusual and should sound the alarms that our Justice System is vulnerable if those elected and appointed to protect it - openly exploit and corrupt it. President Trump violated a norm that says that a president should not comment on ongoing prosecutions. This is not okay, this is not normal. 

-------------
Everyone says the Muller Investigation was a waste of Money that found nothing. In reality, several Trump Associates and Campaign officials have been arrested, found guilty, and jailed over an array of charges as a result of the Investigation. This is not okay, this is not normal 
-------------
Members of Trumps Administration have been leaving or being fired at an alarming rate - with so many "acting" officials, rather than permanent ones. While it is a President's ability to decide who's on his staff, this is not normal or acceptable behavior. Trump criticized Obama for the same thing Trump has been doing - to a larger extent. 
------------
Rebuking and denouncing the recommendations and findings of the CDC, WHO, and American Proffesional Medical Associations in regards to COVID-19 ( Corona Virus ). Downplaying the seriousness of COVID-19 puts the American Population in serious risk. Trump also found it necessary to falsely mention that democrats opposed additional emergency funding to the CDC. That is not okay, this is not normal

Trump has also said that Democrats are using the corona virus as a hoax to damage him. Let it be known that Democrats do not blame him for COVID-19. No one has ever blamed Trump for it. We criticize his lack of response, and the response he does give is faulted and misled. I can't believe this needs to be said, but let it be known that COVID-19 is not a Hoax.
------------
President Trump insulted the military service of John McCain. Saying; " He's not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured.". That is not okay, this is not normal. 
------------
President Trump imposed a racist travel ban, which targeted a restriction of entry from Muslim-Majority countries from entering the united states - while still allowing travelers from other Muslim-Majority countries where he had personal business interests with including Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Trump defended the ban saying it would prevent terrorism. "In the fifteen years since 9/11, jihadists have killed a total of 94 people on American soil; none of these jihadists came from the countries banned by Trump". Former Acting AG Sally Yates who refused to uphold the ban, was removed by Trump. That is not okay, this is not normal.

Domestic Terrorism as noted by the FBI and Homeland Security, pose an equal if not more significant threat to American lives. 
---------
Trump falsely claimed that 3 million votes in the popular election were illegal. No evidence was found to support this claim, but it seemed to have originated from the right-wing conspiracy show article; InfoWars. ( Presidents really shouldn't be getting their information from Info-wars );  That is not okay, this is not normal.
---------
President Trump has violated the Clause of the Constitution on a number of occasions; with the Trump International Hotel, and several Trump Properties making money off of Diplomatic Functions; and charging the Secret Service with room fees at his Florida Golf Course. That is not okay, this is not normal.
