Until families stop going bankrupt because one
member gets sick;
Some areas of government regulations aren't left enough.
Where privacy comes into play its not Right enough.

Trump will be a bit too exciting
Hillary excruciating
and Bernie?

Who knows ?
He's the only shot I see to dig into Corporate control.
At least enough for the average joe to
get paid a fair share again.
Like I don't know the commie fearing 1950's ?
Was that a socialist time?
Instead overworked Americans are being
taken by not only economic predators, but their own
employers and their new laws.

Why ?

With Sanders running the delegate deficit which there is no way to make up.

13 primaries. 933 total delegates left to 'win'.

The loser getting halfsies.

Seems Sanders got Hilary burned.

The Super Delegates have to turn (they were pledged to Hillary long ago).

The "all caps" comment was me attempting to be funny. The man "wrote a letter", to show his dissatisfaction. Really?

He needs to step up and be a damn man. Call her out on live television, call her up in person, call every radio there is and yell from the roof tops. Do SOMETHING to get your voice heard and unite the people behind you. "Writing a letter" does nothing to help him in this situation. Acting like a man and demanding a fair shake would speak volumes... But he went with a "stern letter"...

As for my posting history, you can go see that I've never defended Trump, nor am I a fan. So take your ignorant accusations and shove 'em!

The fact remains, Bernie sounds like a limp wristed whiny fool... IMworthlessO....

I am starting to believe that Bernie is going to win regardless of what the dnc does to thwart him. The dnc is being subverted by Hillary's interests.

Calling it an "accusation" doesn't really work when it's a known fact that that is what's going on.

The DNC is "subverted" by Democrat interests.

Why shouldn't they fight against outside takeover?

Sanders isn't, and has never been, a Democrat.

He is running as one because he knew he had ZERO chance as an Independent.

He isn't looking out for the little guy, hell he isn't even close to honest, he is leading a soft coup of the Democrat party and they are doing whatever they can to save themselves.

Who can blame them?

Who can blame them?

The people who support Sanders, for one. Or believe in a democracy, for two. Or even just the people who wish to rid America of its government corruption, for three.

So, a lot of people, actually.

Bernie has spent a whole lot of time in Washington DC.
You would think that he has some idea of how the leadership there operates.

So, because "people" support Sanders, the Democrat party should sacrifice itself. He is an Independent and should have run as one for all his "supporters to rally behind". This whole DNC thing wouldn't be an issue if he hadn't been dishonest and played the system from the jump. (yes, I know, it's just politics when he does it)

I don't understand what you mean by "democracy". If Sanders (or you for that matter), believes in "democracy", he could run as an independent candidate. He was always had an "I" next to his name except when it is time to run for President. Why is that? He wants to use the Democrat party and then whines when they resist.

I cannot and will not argue with yo about the corruption. I starts at dogcatcher and goes past President. Every elected official is guilty of it. Praise Sanders for shining a light on it (and rightly so), just don't be surprised if some of that light splashes back on him too.

The Democrat party wouldn't be sacrificing itself, though. The people in charge of it and involved with it and all its corruption would be taking a fall. The party is barely affected. Ultimately, it should be the people who make the party, no?
Its like if a vast alien civilization ordered you to execute everyone from the house or higher. That wouldn't be sacrificing America, now would it?

Less "resisting" more "illegally disenfranchising hundreds of thousands of voters to help tip the scales even further in the direction of their favored candidate."
The super-delegates are a crock of horsesh*t, but they were to be expected.
You can argue that all the other stuff he should have also expected and therefore it's his fault, but it's still undemocratic and still suppression of the will of the people.

We aren't talking about Sanders corruption, though. I suppose you can argue that running as a Democrat is "unfaithful" or "immoral" or some other variant of such words, but it's hardly corruption.

And remember, this is America. Where, as the saying goes, "The needs of the many are barely even comparable to the needs of the few. Oh, you thought that meant in the favor of the many? HAHAHA."

So what you argument boils down to is "you support the action, therefore the action is justified".

Sanders running as a Democrat is no different than Trump running as a Republican (except that Donald beat the competition). Both used the party system of which they didn't belong because they knew they could not compete without said systems. A system has the right to fight off a foreign invader, whether it be the flu, a whacky socialist misfit, or a narcissistic billionaire.

And the "Super -delegate" card can stop being used now as Hillary is beating Sanders in votes, states, and bound delegates. To go a step further, Sanders needs those same "super-delegates" you demonize, if he wants to win a contested convention. Then again, he may just accept the VP spot as he has hinted at (and admit he just wants to stay on the government teat in any way he can).

Rail against Hillary for a year, demonize her every decision, then when he loses - endorse her, hand over his war chest (all those "little people dollars"
), and accept the VP slot. Priceless.
