Mr. Unelectable Won Another Huge Endorsement

So, like the DFA all over again, Bernie won the MoveOn Endorsement Poll with 78.6% (very nearly 80%) of the 340,665 votes cast.

A small article they wrote gives insight as to why he won it by such a crushingly huge margin.


Bernie’s campaign is inspiring millions of people to enter the political process for the first time, including young people and other members of the “rising American electorate” who the eventual Democratic nominee will need to mobilize in order to win in November. He’s raised money from more contributors than any candidate in history at this stage in the primary process, and massive crowds have turned out to see him across the country.


And honestly, I think they're quite right. The difference between Bernie and Clinton is that he's inspiring. Clinton just makes you want to embrace the void. Bernie brings hope, and, yes, change (as ill-fated as those words have become) for a better tomorrow.

But really, at this point, is anyone surprised? As far as I'm concerned, when the people decide, Sanders takes the crown every. Single. Time.

Thoughts?

People know that he is campaigning for what he truly believes in. NOT to just be another puppet, tell the people what they want to hear just to get elected and then screw everybody (CLINTON comes to mind)

I think he is very, very old. I also think he is rather idealistic and unrealistic. His ideas require the .01% to give up their wealth and they would rather not. It is far cheaper for them to destroy him and they will if needed. For now he is getting people organized on the democrat side and moving people to the left so no problem at this point for the establishment. Hillery is very old as well. Is there no one under 70 that the dems can field for president?

My thoughts are that Hillary is in some trouble against Sanders...initially.
If she loses Iowa and N.H. she'll be struggling, but unless momentum against her changes dramatically, she has most of the south and west already locked down.

Hopefully, this will change. I can't stand the woman...but Bernie, alone, can't stop her...yet. Pressure on her from the FBI, Republicans and media need to continue.

Sanders also needs to take her on much more. She will not pull any punches against him...and get downright nasty, if she really feels he's a threat. Sanders needs to be ready for her full wrath and bag of dirty political tricks.

I feel so rallied, I look at the election process and begin to stir, I sense a spark of growing sentiment, rallying my dashed hopes one more time to bring change and hope to the world….

then mark an x on a voting machine and go home, filled with hope for change, one, morrrre, tiiiime.

Seriously, what's so inspiring about him? He's just another career politician who promises he'll wave his magic wand and fix everything. He wants to impose big government regulation on everything and anything.



I'd suggest reading this.
You may not agree, but it's worth a read.

Yes, Hillary Clinton. She is 68. I will, still, however, not be supporting her.

Vote for what you want, not what you think is "realistic". Sanders is special because he says "Not Me. Us", because he says that he cannot create change just by being elected, and he needs people to remain politically active, to work hard, and to help him make things better. No one else is saying that. No one else ever has.

I still don't see Debbie Wasserman Shultz and the DNC moving to Sanders' side. If anything, they're doubling down on Clinton.

These are part of the Clinton machine...and they will look to destroy Sanders if Hillary feels he becomes a real threat to her coronation.

I remember Penquin Saying he'd like to fill her void.
Just saying, maybe a little Bill payback.

count your lucky stars they aren't.

If all people were politically active...there would be no peace on Earth. Ever. I for one support people going politically inactive. Once the politics and religion is out of your mind...you can be friends with anyone.

When Ron Paul ran for prez in 2008, he told people repeatedly that politicians can't magically change the world simply by being elected. The people need to bring about change.

Sanders is, as I said, different. He is saying that voting for him and electing him is the beginning, not the end, of true change. He's not saying he can do any of it by himself. "Not Me. Us"

I was not aware of that. It seems that Ron Paul was actually a better candidate than I thought. He was right, but he came too early. The boiling point had not yet been reached.

Well finally Bernie gets some press from a George Soros outfit !!

Hmmm.

Good for some perhaps.

Now maybe some other organizations follow....

Is there peace on Earth now?
What I see is an Earth embroiled in massive turmoil, with the politically inactive US as one of the largest instigators of that conflict.

I think you are mistaking "politically active" with "politically extreme."
When I (and Bernie) say "politically active", he means everyone going and holding their representative's feet to the fire, and forcing them to not bring about things like the TPP.

They always say that.

Er... Isn't JFK considered one of the best presidents the US has ever had?

Bernie isn't saying to believe in him, he's saying to work with him.

The people with the real money know more than us. I would think that this is an indicator that she very well be indicted in the coming weeks or months and the core DNC is making sure they are disassociating themselves.

The DNC and GOP are both being torn apart by what are, in my opinion, two of the craziest candidates in years. You have the non-filter big businessman and you have the self proclaimed Independent Socialist. There is NO establishment. If you look at the latest polls also Hillary is on a slide against any GOP candidate.

The tough choice for Mr Sanders will be if he will start to accept PAC money even though he has raised so much privately.That will affect the swing DNC and Independent vote with makes up close to 30-40% of the polls currently.

I've said in previous posts awhile ago, once people start paying attention to Bernie's message and as they start watching the debates, more people are going to start abandoning Clinton. He may be old but he's the only candidate focusing on the peoples needs and attacking corporations and wall street who are corrupting our government. In case something unfortunate happens to Bernie while in office, I'm sure a running mate who has the same concern for the majority of Americans can always continue implementing his beliefs. Isn't that an important part of being a V.P.?

It's not a tough choice. If he accepts PAC money he loses, instantly. Game Over.

It won't happen. Sanders isn't that stupid. Or untrustworthy.
