I decided before Bernie announced his candidacy that I would not let the opposition get to me this time. It didn’t occur to me that if I ignore all the silliness I won’t have anything to talk about. Then I realized I’m missing an opportunity. Probably the best use for the fake candidates and their outrageous lies is comic relief.
I don’t know what the establishment has up its sleeve with its unbelievable pols and fundrasing numbers and I’m not going to waste my time worrying about it, but I am a little curious. Can fake poll numbers decide a presidential race? Sometimes I wonder if they think they’re actually fooling us with their stupid tricks, or if they’re just trying to be annoying. Either way, it’s bizarre behavior for people who presume to run a country.
And about those polls, this is the first time I’ve seen poll numbers for a guy who isn’t in the race. We have a ghost candidate running for president. I hesitate to say his name on the chance that it will summon him from the underworld. Clearly, our fearless leaders have gone around the bend. What’s next? Dress up the Flying Spaghetti Monster in a suit and tie and give him a super pac?
On a serious note, I do have two concerns about Bernie’s campaign. First, my emails from Bernie are going to the Promotions folder in Gmail. I tried to move them to the Primary folder, but it didn’t work. I don’t see his emals unless I remember to go to Promotions and look for them. Second, there are a few apps out there that claim to organize volunteers for Bernie. I tried one two days ago. It never had any assignments and it messed with my phone so I had to delete it. I just found an article about Field the Bern https://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/bernie-sanders-app/ but I don’t think they have one for an android. Has anyone used this app? My main concern is that there are unofficial apps that are just there to gather voter information from Sanders supporters. .
