Bernie Sanders may have lost the Democratic presidential nomination last year, but it appears he hasnt lost the ardent support of his fan base. Some people who were feeling the Bern, including members of the Vermont senators campaign staff, certain delegates and a group of volunteers began a campaign Thursday for Sanders to spearhead his own political party.
Draft Bernie for a Peoples Party is aimed at transforming Sanders amorphous, widespread support base into a new, concrete political party. The proposed party said it intends to mobilize opposition to President Donald Trump.
This party will offer new progressive electoral choices and strive to enact the people-first platform that so many supported during the Sanders campaign, the website reads.
Sanders presidential campaign catalyzed a movement, and theres evidence that many voters became disillusioned with the Democratic party after it threw its support behind Hillary Clinton as the nominee instead of Sanders. Fourteen million voters changed their affiliation from Democrat to independent in the wake of the election, according to a Gallup poll. The new party will attempt to gather those voters into a permanent working class party.
Sanders campaign already built the coalition, all we have to do is give it a name, the Draft Bernie for a Peoples Party website stated....

There already is a socialist party.
He’s going to join the already existing american communist party?
The ‘Clinton for 3rd loss’ party!
But there already is a Communist Party, Socialist Workers Party, Workers World Party, Revolutionary Communist Party and Democratic Socialists of America (all sort of reds, old, ex, new, stupid and weird).
I guess Bernie is, as the former Reds said about themselves after they left the Party, they were just “LEFT OUT”.
Hey, there is a silver lining to this all. Bernie has three houses so he can have a “HOUSE PARTY” and wear an erasehead Afro to it.
Don’t they already have Communist Party USA?
Where do I chip in?
Socialist and Communist is already taken but how about:
The Redistribution Party?
The Everything is Free Party?
The Split the Democrat Vote Party?
dropped letter. Should read as “and wear an Eraserhead Afro to it”.
[I wouldn’t Kid you and Play with your memory, would I)?
Good idea, he will siphon away votes from the Rat party.
Do it Bernie! America needs another Commie/Socialist Party. The democrats aren’t sufficiently leftist.
What’s in it for him?
Another new house?
The Clintons need Bernie for a vote splitter to siphon off
votes from Trump-Pence - again.
Bernie wants another beach house and the Democrats will have to pay big if they don’t want their party base to peel off. As the Democrat Party becomes more leftist it has lost most of middle America and it will have to try and keep its own fractured base from bolting. The Democrat party has always been a city political machine party and it is been slowly taken over by the turd-worlders infesting the cities and the process is accelerating. There is a reason the Democrat Party is a dots-of-blue in a sea-of-red basket-case.
Let the Balkanization flow through you
Without admitting it publicly - there has to be some people left there who know they can't continue down this path they are on. However - I'd love to be wrong and hope Keith Ellison winds up ruining, I mean running, the party.
Go Bernie! But let me suggest you leave your R8 at home when attending meetings...
Go for it.
Do it, Bern!
