So crooked Hilley, is ok because of a D?
Would Cruz, also be ok if he had a big D?
Are corporations ok, if they are buying D's?
#NeverHillary it is time to end the corporate rule!

Bernie will never run 3rd party. He may think he is anti-establishment, but he is being used and his supporters too. He is just the back up in case Hillary goes south with this investigation. DNC has been covering their base.
The thing is, he laid out the circumstances where he would not make a third party run, but what if those circumstances changed? If the nevertrumpers do a third party run, then that would mean Bernie's worry that a third party on the Dem side would mean an automatic "right wing" (to him) victory would NOT be assured. His reasoning would be "null and void." So I could see him saying,
"I said I wouldn't, but the context of my statements has changed and my supporters are so good that I see a clear chance of winning this thing, therefore....."
Nearly half of American voters who support either Democrat Hillary Clinton or Republican Donald Trump for the White House said they will mainly be trying to block the other side from winning, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Thursday.
The results reflect a deepening ideological divide in the United States, where people are becoming increasingly fearful of the opposing party, a feeling worsened by the likely matchup between the New York real estate tycoon and the former first lady, said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics.
"This phenomenon is called negative partisanship," Sabato said. "If we were trying to maximize the effect, we couldn't have found better nominees than Trump and Clinton."
