I hate to say it but Sanders is going to be the biggest factor for 2020. He is exactly who Trump wants to run against. He has already branded him a nutty socialist who wants open borders and free everything. He also said something the other day that "dems are already killing Bidens chance and are eating their own." If that ends up true, or Biden doesnt run, Trump is going to use that. 2020 is really clear as day, Trump has already released the playbook. Socialism, open borders, reparations, guns and high taxes. Democrats need to push back on all that and instead push healthcare, education and the economy. It should be a slam dunk if they stay on point.
Democrats can't push back on identity, Critical, Theory, Marxism. They all have the same roots. Transform western society.

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — The surge of migrant families arriving at the southern border has led the Trump administration to dramatically expand a practice President Donald Trump has long mocked as “catch and release.”

With immigrant processing and holding centers overwhelmed, the administration is busing people hundreds of miles inland and releasing them at Greyhound stations and churches in cities like Albuquerque, San Antonio and Phoenix because towns close to the border already have more than they can handle.

Relief organizations in some cities are struggling to feed and house the migrants and warning that a public health crisis is taking shape, especially with sick infants and children among the many immigrant families who need medical attention.

“We’re asking volunteer doctors and nurses and community members to step up and do what the government should be doing. If this was a hurricane, FEMA would be on the ground helping,” said Jim Gannon, CEO and executive director of Catholic Charities in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

US expands 'catch and release' amid surge in migrants

Oops
Send them all to the location that the dirty judges that forced catch & release live. . Migrations crushed the system. Dirty judges insure these people will stay in the USA.

Just watching morning news earlier and they talked about the Israeli elections. One of the pundits then said "democrats must only vote for candidates that support the state of Palestine, that must be the litmus test." Thats what they need to AVOID.

Stephen Miller nor the White House is pushing to support white nationalism as you claim in your original post.
Well, yeah. Actually they are....White Nationalism as Immigration Policy | Stanford Law Review

snip....
The President’s statements and policies suggest that he views U.S. national identity in racial terms and seeks to preserve the nation’s predominantly white identity. As a general matter, the President has parroted ideas of white cultural threat popular among white nationalists. For instance, on multiple occasions, Trump excoriated the removal of Confederate monuments as a threat to “our culture” —identifying “our culture” with memorials erected to send a message of white supremacy in the name of a war fought to protect slavery. 4 Miles Parks, Confederate Statues Were Built To Further a “White Supremacist Future, NPR (Aug. 20, 2017, 8:31 AM ET), Why Were Confederate Monuments Built? : NPR. He gestured at the notion of a “white genocide”—a rallying cry of white nationalists worldwide—by tweeting support for South African far-right claims that white farmers were suffering from mass killings and land seizures in that country. 5 Vann R. Newkirk II, Trump’s White-Nationalist Pipeline, Atlantic (Aug. 23, 2018), The Trump Administration's White-Nationalist Pipeline - The Atlantic. Most notably, following the largest U.S. gathering of white supremacists in a generation, the President insisted that some who marched in Charlottesville were “very fine people.” 6 Rosie Gray, Trump Defends White-Nationalist Protesters: “Some Very Fine People on Both Sides, Atlantic, (Aug. 15, 2017), Trump Defends White-Nationalist Protesters: 'Some Very Fine People on Both Sides' - The Atlantic.

Do non white nations whether black African, Middle East, Asian, Latino, do they worship diversity and encourage other people to come to their countries? Is it primarily white nations that must get on board with bringing in other races? It seems even Mexico has immigration policy that favors their people & culture.
America is not a "white nation".

I'm torn on Sanders. When we discuss him you probably pick up on that. He has every right to run if he wants to. But, I really wish he hadn't. My biggest fear is he's going to fool around and end up getting Trump elected again. That's why Trump likes him so much. He comes off as a little crazy. And Trump is a master at playing up his opponents weakness and putting them on blast. But you're right. I hadn't thought of it this way before. He also provides the other candidates with the opportunity to present more centrist policy proposals. Hopefully, this time his supporters won't feel alienated if he doesn't win . I'd add "unity" to your list of most important campaign messages. Bernie might end up helping the party if we have a "big tent" primary.

I think the biggest fear concerning Bernie is he doesnt like either party. He routinely runs as a democrat and then when he wins he shuns the party and re-registers as an independent. Imagine him winning the D nomination and then re upping as an indie???? That would essentially leave dems without a candidate. Yet he does this all the time in Vermont. I think the biggest problem with him is that his past videos will surface where he praises the Soviets and says Americas two parties are corrupt. It could be very damaging.
