Back in 2016, I said on Mike Rivero's show that Trump should ask Bernie Sanders to be his VP, when Sanders was screwed out of the nomination for Democratic candidate for President. And give him some Czar-like powers to institute some of his policies in areas where he was wildly popular (without draining the Treasury). The VP is normally mostly ceremonial, if you think about it. And I'm not talking about allowing radical left policies like late term abortions, reparations or open borders. Remember, those were not part of the Overton window back then.
This would be anathema to most conservatives, but only because they are short-sighted. In the first place, it would have been the biggest landslide in the entire history of elections. Number two, it would have opened up a dialogue between the left and right, with one result being that the left would never have become so radicalized.
Similarly, in 2020, Trump should ask Tulsi Gabbard to be his running mate. She could be his attack dog against the Military Industrial Complex, since he oft seems a day late and a dollar short on the subject (but now that it's campaign time, he may do a few things). And it would take the wind totally out of the radical left's sails. Wouldn't that be worth it?
This war of attrition the elites have going, pitting the right against the left, only profits the 1%. It is THEM screwing us most of the time. They're like the upper crust business administration in the film, Hoffa. The scene where the company men were enjoying fine dining, brought to them by servers, while the union members and scabs battled in the street with pieces of lead pipe, shivs and fists. Neither the union members nor the scabs were evil, they just needed jobs. Sure, the left has many policies we could never go along with, but it would take so little beyond symbolic to get the two sides talking.
I know this may sound like a child's thoughts, however, fans of non-violence couldn't ask for or conceive of a better solution, in my opinion. And if an ardent, lifelong neo-Nazi like myself can conceive of this, then who among you, right or left, is too obstinate to consider it? Are you less reasonable than a Nazi? If left and right can fight side by side in the Yellow Vest protests in France, can we not do that here? There's plenty we can agree on, real pollution, corporate and government corruption, the international financiers and private central banks, (the left seems less than pleased with Israel, by the way) etc. etc. etc. The first time I heard the idea of right and left working together against entrenched govt corruption was from Tom Metzger, leader of the White Aryan Resistance, in the late 1980s. Now, one of Jimmy Dore's videos was recently featured on no less than the Russia Insider site. It's an idea whose time has come. The only non-violent way to sap power from the elites. If you saw the future I do, you'd start reaching out to the other side right now, to avoid that. And I guarantee you that the elites would hate this more than anything else we could do. Trump is allegedly a master of the deal, he should've had this idea himself, I think. This is the smart move. Most of Hitler's stormtroopers were "beefsteak Nazis" , brown (shirts) on the outside, red on the inside, by the way.
