Nothing you said is wrong, but you're missing a few major points.
1. A third party isn't going anywhere in the US. Never. Ever. This is how the country is built. It is a losing battle and wasted resources.
Which leads to taking over/influencing the Democratic party and the 2nd point...
2. How are progressives going to win more actual elections- be it primaries or otherwise? Complaining about how shitty the system is isn't the answer.
Basically, this Bernie brand of progressive isn't going to do it.
But I don't think either side of this argument does a good job at learning from hisotry/mistakes.
