If there is one major takeaway from the Midterm elections then it is that on the Republican side those who stuck with Trump mostly won, meaning that the current US President cemented his place as the GOP candidate; whilst on the Democratic side those that went too far to the left, mostly lost.
Therefore the overly emotional reaction of far-left Democratic great Mr Bernie Sanders is at least a bit understandable, when he explained, right after the election results became clear, that he assumed that ‘white’ voters hadn’t chosen progressive candidates because of ‘perceived racism.’
Mr Sanders stated: "You know there are a lot of white folks out there who are not necessarily racist who felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African-American."

After a lot of social media backlash (from established Democrats), Mr Sanders' spokesman insisted his comments were taken out of context.
“There's no question that in Georgia and in Florida racism has reared its ugly head. And you have candidates who ran against Gillum and ran against Stacey Abrams who were racist and were doing everything they could to try to play whites against blacks," he said. "And that is an outrage, and we have got to continue doing everything that we can to fight all forms of racism."

The 2016 hopeful for the Democratic nomination for President was commenting on the fact that his favorite candidates running on celebrity-endorsed progressive platforms didn’t get there: Mr Andrew Gillum in Florida, Ms Stacey Abrams in Georgia and Mr Beto O’Rourke in Texas.
Mr Andrew Gillum, who narrowly lost in Florida to a Trump-supporting Republican, had endorsed a $15 minimum wage, universal healthcare and wanted to reform immigration enforcement, among other measures.

He lost the state by half a percentage point only, mostly getting the younger vote. He demands a recount, which looks like a petty thing to do in the eyes of most GOP voters at this point.
Over in Georgia, Ms Stacey Abrams also hasn't conceded her race just yet (and there are controversies swirling around voting fairness in her state). She was endorsed by Oprah and expressed similar progressive sentiments.
During an interview with Rolling Stone magazine over the summer she admitted that looking for centrist votes was not a really good idea for her, saying: "I'm not going to spend a disproportionate share of our resources trying to convert Republican-leaning voters when we can invest in lifting up the voices of those who share our values."
Of course, there is more to it than this. Mr Sanders knows that given the Democratic results in the Midterms, a progressive candidate being elected as the 2020 Democrat nominee is now less likely than before as the only end result seems to be that more “Trump”-voters get riled up to go out and vote for their guy instead.

So now this old washed up socialist is telling white folks how we wont vote for people of color?
What a freak, color has no bearing, it is the political stance. Most the population with any sense can clearly see the follies progressive platforms & policies have on society.
F you communist Sand!
I am tired of these red dogs trying to hide behind a socialist agenda!
If we had a Saint Bernard for president we would all be eating dog food!

The chaff may be, for a while, among the wheat, but He is coming, whose fan is in his hand, and who will thoroughly purge his floor. Those that, by their own sin and folly, make themselves as chaff, will be found so before the whirlwind and fire of Divine wrath.

Psalms 2:4 Context
1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. 5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. 6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
GLORY TO GOD AND HIS WORD WITH SHALL NEVER PASS AWAY!!! THANK YOU LORD JESUS!!!!
Judgement day is on the horizon. The fiery furnace of Hell awaits your unholy execution.
Sodomites and colored people, your day comes.
To all who wish to join my struggle, rejoice, for I welcome all.
For all who love, queers beware, you shall burn forever more.
I've always wondered about the link between religion, mental health, and US-style Christianity.
If you were ever in any doubt about the mental health of the US nation you only have to look at this forum to have it confirmed. Religion is just an opinion, without evidence. That's why it's called having "faith".
I burst out laughing at the religious nutjobs on this forum justifying a political stance based on religion. I can assure you that if any God exists (she/he/it doesn't, by the way) then you would be going straight to hell, given your backwards ridiculous opinions.
I am from Sweden. We have capitalism and socialism together here. We have no homeless people, as they are given houses and helped off drugs and in to a good life.
Why do you not want this in your USA? It would change your country and make everybody happier and less angry. You are all so angry all the time about imagined grievances.
Forms of Socialism can briefly work in wealthy countries with a racially congruous population. Sweden's worldwide ranking in every major economic index have been consistently falling. Mass immigration isn't going to help with that.
To the Swedish guy: uhh, when the rape rates in Sweden exploded due to migrant violence against women what was teh Swedish government's solution? Just stop recording the demographic data.
I'm pretty happy to live in a country where rapists can't get away with the act claiming "sexual emergency."
I'm not at all angry all the time, but the grievances are far from imaginary.
GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PEOPLE… HE DOESNT CARE ABOUT THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN. HE MADE ALL OF US. DONT CONFUSE BELIEF IN CHRIST WITH RACISM. GOD LOVES EVERYONE BUT NOT EVERYONE LOVES GOD. AS YOU CAN SEE IN THIS FORUM.
CRACKS ME UP WHEN PEOPLE SAY NO PROOF OF GOD. MORE PROOF OF GOD THAN PROOF THERES NOT. ESPECIALLY IF YOU TAKE SCIENCE INTO CONSIDERATION. INTELLIGENT DESIGN DONT JUST HAPPEN. IF YOU FOUND A SPACE SHIP IN THE DESERT WOULD YOU SAY IT MAGICALLY APPEARED OR THAT SOMEONE INTELLIGENT MADE IT. DOY!!!
YEAH EVOLUTION HAS BEEN DEBUNKED.. EVEN DARWIN HIMSELF DIDNT BELIEVE IT. ITS ALWAYS JUST BEEN A THEORY. BUT IT CONVENIENTLY DISCARDED GOD FOR THOSE WITH AN AGANDA OF THEIR OWN. THAT SHIT NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS AS FACT.
People who don't believe in God are stuck in the stone age. That is such an old outdated idea at this stage. People with any intelligence at all know that the odds alone of life just happening make it an impossibility.
you assure me?? you assure me??!!! hahaha who do you think you are that you think you can assure anyone of your pathetic little idea that there is no God. wow. that's quite an ego you got there. do you carry a mirror in your pocket?? I'll be sure to let the world know there is someone in a forum on Goldwater, that can assure them there is no God. I'm sure they will rush at break neck speed to come read your word of absolute knowledge. should we bow your excellency?
I'm afraid your USA has the highest ratio of people incarcerated of any country in the world. Commit two crimes and the second crime means automatic jail - pretty crazy if you just stole a loaf of bread twice!
Rape in Sweden is mostly committed by white men, sorry to tell you. You're welcome to come and visit, our women are certainly prettier than yours and you'll have a good time - we have great cities and outdoor sports. Winter is coming and we have neat skiing, hiking and quad biking in the snow. Honestly, come and see - you'll be totally surprised at how good it is.
The logic in other posts here is literally crazy. 'Creationism' is not taught in schools internationally because it's known to be bullshit. Religion is just an opinion. You can't prove any of your beliefs because it's just a faith.
However, we can use science to show dinosaurs existed and that many things mentioned in the bible simply aren't true. We should also treat all humans with respect, including homosexuals, non-white people.
People are people. Sometimes people do good, sometimes people do bad. If you believe white is automatically good then go visit a US prison, because that'll show you people with all colors of skin of the rainbow commit evil crimes.
Oh, one last thing: you complain about black people a LOT here. Why is that? You stole them from the African continent to use as slaves! Perhaps investigate your own history and understand that these people deserve equality after you abused them for so many years.
I don't recall the bible sanctioning enslavement of any people, let alone black people.
The good thing your posts highlight is that the USA education system is so broken that people like yourselves are EVERYWHERE there; left behind, hardly any money, want to believe conspiracy theories and blame everybody else for your own lack of success in life.
Go and look in the mirror. Then you'll see the person responsible for your lack of achievement in life: yourself.
yeah, after ObamaCo squatted in The White House for 8 long years white people are finally waking up.
eight long years of that filthy, race-baiting pos, Obama is what did it for white america. any white who votes for a black or brown is a traitor to their race and is digging their own graves.
