Some voters in Colorado are demanding the Democrat Super-Delegates there start switching over to Sanders because he has clipped some of the vote majorities.

They still support Hillary and at least on guy got a note when he picked up his take out food order !!

Looks like some of the so-called Supers are elected officials themselves which makes the resistance to Bernie a bit ironic.


Democratic superdelegates face pressure to support Bernie Sanders


Three top Democratic superdelegates in Colorado are facing pressure to support Bernie Sanders after he easily won the state’s presidential preference poll, but all are remaining committed to Hillary Clinton.

U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, Gov. John Hickenlooper and U.S. Rep. Jared Polis all faced questions in recent days about who they will support at the Democratic National Convention in July.

Polis — who represents Boulder, an area that went big for Sanders — received a note with his takeout order Sunday at Native Foods Cafe that read: “Dear Congressman Polis, the constituency has spoken. Use your power wisely. Feel the Bern.”


Feel the Bern .. DaaaHaHaHa





Why don't the Democrat

Supers just pledge what the voters want ?

Because it's all about the party and playing the game.

Bernie may go down in history for helping save the Republic by if not stopping, at least slowing down, the coronation of Hillary.

I don't agree with him, but oddly I respect him. He's not a liar. He is what he is.

Sanders is to the Democrats what Trump is to the Republicans. Outsiders whose voices are being marginally tolerated and are threatening the powers that be in the "uni party."

Bernie is an outsider in the sense that he doesn't play dirty politics. Bernie is making a bunch of promises and is using illusory rhetoric to get support the same as Obama did. I like Bernie but I think he is too old. Have you seen how the past Presidents aged while in office?

A man offering our corrupt Congress $18 trillion to spend and proposing the biggest tax hike to grow the biggest, most powerful federal government can't seriously be termed an 'outsider.'

Please. He's a democrat. That means he is a team-player despite how he is being marketed.

Bernie is fortunate to be benefitting from Hillary's email scandal -- and I don't think that's a coincidence. It's MAJOR. Hillary and Trump will deliver Bernie and the Establishment will make oodles of money.

The Establishment MUST love Bernie.

Proof?

I can say many things, but all they boil down to are opinions.

Are Bernie protesters and BLM going to storm the delegate floor and prevent voting if they refuse to vote for Bernie?

Of course he does. All he has to do is be there. Socialism is trying to opportunistically take a back door while there's basically utter chaos on the political scene. Sounds like business as usual for them to me. There's no such thing as a clean socialist. Just a bunch of wild-eyed groupies concealing the dirt.

Proof?

Recovery.org. No accountability in Congress. No oversight with Congressional spending. High Taxes & Spending=Big Government.

Do you really need proof that Congress is corrupt? Obama's stimulus package is a shining example with millions lost to phantom districts. Countless other millions are unaccounted for here and there.

Bernie is offering Congress $18 trillion to spend. Congress is corrupt when it comes to spending. Congress diverts money into the pockets of the wealthy with big government contracts (and god knows what else).

Ergo, the Establishment must love Bernie.

It's LOGICAL.

Media and campaign marketing? That's just hype and wishful thinking. I'm sticking with logic.

I can see your point here. Everybody is screaming the establishment wants Hillary. Why though?

I mean if republicans are right and free education, etc, etc is all about more government control. Wouldnt that mean that the establishment would push for Bernie? I mean what better to keep people controlled in that way than everything Bernie stands for? He is like Hillary but more 'extreme' in those regards than her is he not?
All i can think of is Bernies disdain for Wall St and banks is enough of an offset to the other things he wants that seemingly you would think tptb would want.

I support Bernie regardless.

Yup, you can tell who the real outsiders are by the amount of flack they draw from the established power structures in our world.

Of the three outsider candidates, which one draws the most flack? It would actually be Trump, then you have Cruz, and no one really says anything about Bernie. Everyone agrees he won't be elected, sure, but no one has absolute hysterics about the idea of him getting elected, either.

It's the whole frog in boiling water thing, Bernie wants to go all in and they know most of the people in this country aren't ready for that yet. Plus, Bernie is not the next one up in the structure. He's a back bencher, not a player. It's not his time to be rewarded like it is Hillary's.

They also know his ideas are wildly unrealistic even as much as they might like the idea.

I think the entire 'super delegate' scam has been revealed by Bernie and Trump.

The people's votes are irrelevant.

If I didn't know that Congress and these two parties were absolutely corrupt and could not be trusted to spend money...then I actually match most closely with Bernie, too, policy-wise.

But he is a democrat and they are all corrupt, so I cannot overlook those things.

I think Bernie is The Chosen One 2.0.

So you have no proof that he is loved by the "Establishment". I guess it was all hype then, so I'll also stick with logic.

ETA: And Yes, I know Congress is corrupt

Oh, I am sorry Congress' record with spending is not proof enough that they might actually LOVE Bernie's $18 trillion spending plan.

Of course you should stick your head in the sand until 'The Establishment' says on the TeeVee that they like a candidate with a HUGE spending plan and proposing a HUGE tax hike because that just gives our corrupt federal government more power.

It's logical to think they would definitely not LOVE Bernie. Cause he says he is anti-Establishment and all.

The Establishment is DEFINITELY letting you in on 'it.'

*wink*

How about you don't know what I support with Bernie and know his socialism policies won't pass. Just look at Congress right now and see what gets passed. I think you are sticking your head in the sand thinking Bernie will waltz in and pass $18 Trillion spending bill. But hey, I'm just an idiot right?

Oh, sure, the two parties will definitely put on a show to pretend there is this divide, and they won't agree, and we will get saddled with awful legislation that does nothing to help Americans and just puts more money into the wealthy's hands. That's the scam they always run.

It's about POTENTIAL. And The Establishment has the potential to steal the most money from taxpayers and have the most influence through a big federal government under a Bernie Sanders administration.

It's pretty obvious Hillary is the Establishment candidate. They will do whatever they want with her in office, because they pay her. I'm starting to think your a Hillary supporter since we're jumping to conclusions or maybe a closet Trump supporter who knows.

Just like the RNC doesn't respect the voters for Trump. I can't wait for the conventions to see what kind of shenanigans are afoot!

But, being a conspiracy theorist yourself, how do you not know the answer already? All the politicians in DC are bought and paid for. They are doing as they're told and it's not the people's will but their wealthy donors bidding.

Duh.
