How Sanders is about to get the Democratic ticket

No, it’s not his policies and not his fire (‘feel the burn’). Sanders is close to becoming the Democratic representative the same way Obama won. He has a massive email campaign, targeting voters for years. The only difference is, Obama won the presidency too. There is no guarantee that Sander could succeed with that.

I don’t know how to stop him but I know how Trump will. He will say: ‘And you call yourself Jewish? I’m more Jewish than you. Israelis want me, not you. And just like you as president would be a disaster for Israel, you will be a disaster for the US. You’re all talk. You spent your life talking. You never accomplished a thing in your life. Maybe one thing, that made you money — you wrote a book. More words. You will be happier a few more years talking away. Being president is a very complicated and busy job — believe me. It’s not for you.

You’re always finger-pointing. You’re always teaching. You’re a good man — as a school teacher. But the people know already. They don’t need another wise guy to point out things to them. Believe me – when I’m holding a really, I’m not teaching anything. People know. You politicians always explain things. When will you start listening instead of talking? They could explain to you a few things.

The people will not let you ruin our country, our economy that we built here, are standing in the world, our advances in international trade and defense that brought us back to respect for the USA. The people will not let you ruin my work with your theories and principles.

All this talk about fair trade, open borders, and the climate are just hoaxes to rob the hard workers of the US from their hard-earned moneys. You never built anything. They will not let you tore down anything either.’

Bernie will have no comeback to any of this. He may sound good but he’ll look bad.

Against Donald Trump, the only chance for the Democrats to win the presidency is through Andrew Yang.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having a peek outside of your cultural bubble. * NEW: To see other blog posts by him, his overspill blog you can reach by clicking on the Website icon next to his picture at the head of every post. There you may find precursors to later TOI blog posts, addition or corrections of published TOI blog posts, blog posts the TOI will not carry and some thoughts that are too short to be a TOI blog post. Also, the TOI only allows for one blog post per blogger per 24 hours. Sometimes, he has more to say than that. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
