[Marxism] Sanders's "turnout" strategy not working

Countering redbaiting should be combined with exposing the crimes of US imperialism.  For example, the problems of Cuba and Venezuela are largely due to the US economic blockades against those countries.  Sanders may not be willing to say this, but  it needs to be said.

This whole focus on turnout in the primaries ignores one major fact ---
MANY democrats DON'T CARE who is nominated --- they want to beat Trump and
will come out to vote against him.   How else to explain the record
turnouts in 2018?

The most important thing we can do is to counter the rising tide of
anti-Sanders red-baiting.  I was unfortunate enough to be stuck in an
automobile dealer's waiting room while my car was serviced.  As in too many
public places, the TV was turned to Trump-TV (alias Fox) --- and the were
going on and on about Bernie supporting Castro and Venezuela and how
horrible those countries are ---

That's Trump's playbook and it is worth fighting against ---
