Bernie sure fell in line quickly.

With Debbie Wasserman running the DNC like Hillary's office.

He never had a chance. But, I have a question...

Bernie's people seemed to hate Hillary. Now they love her ?

It seems like the millions supporting Bernie were disenfranchised .

It seems he just folded, which way will his supporters go ?

It feels like Bernie was controlled opposition.

Hillary was not going to let the nomination slip away again.

This is the kind of thing that makes people hate politics.

Remember the Ron Paul supporters? Bernie and his have joined that club...no matter how much their supporters were convinced of victory...it didnt happen.

People were pissed... and the band played on.

The difference is, the Bernie supporters will fall in line and vote for Hillary. The Ron Paul supporters did not vote for Romney.

Sorry, thanks for the correction. Blocked from the convention, then.

No problem. The Republicans are no less corrupt than the democrats.

Was some money involved ?

It sure does.

Hillary gets to be president...err...the nominee....

...AND she 'has' to adopt more socialist-leaning, big-spending policies to 'unite' the party.

The taxpayers...err...Congress & their Cronies win!!!!

I think Bernie ran a pretty good grass roots campaign, got a lot of new folks involved in the election process. The republicans have failed to energize the youth movement in any way, so the GOP is going to have to go a long way to catch the college aged voter. Trumps biggest demographic is HS educated white men.

Seriously? Most Bernie supporters don't want Trump as pres. Since Hilary won, they have no choice but to vote Hilary. How do you Bernie's people love Hilary? Where is the proof? Also media has been lying since. The president election might be all staged. Most people in the conventions are not majority of the people in America. You cannot put 3 million people in one area.

Will you people stop effing insisting on that! My god.

I was a Bernie supporter and last thing I'd ever do is vote Hillary. Bernie was my man because of the anti corporation and big banks, and corruption in politics. The very things Hillary represents more than any other candidate, like ever, her and Nixon could share notes on corruption and it would be Nixon doing the most learning.

I don't think it's just Bernie supporters.

Hillary supporters are just as disenfranchised. Unless people are expecting Hillary to suddenly start telling the truth for the first time in her life.

You are excluded, in my book, Puppylove! You've made it clear, many times now, that the two parties are no longer an option, for you.

I left and never looked back when the DNC burned me, in 2008, so I fully support you on your new found freedom.





ETA: By the way, I had some confidence in Hillary's integrity, in 2008. I do not any more. You may find that you stop trusting Bernie for his connection to the DNC, sometime in the future. I also support that if that's where you happen to come to. it's hard to trust anyone connected to the two parties once you realize there is no lesser evil and begin to view both parties with equal openness to criticism.

Based on his appearance during the convention, and the mafiosi way the Clintons do things. I doubt he just sold out.

I just want to add, to be fair, that Hillary made her speech to the DNC and DIDN'T charge them 250,000 dollars.

So who knows.

Of course Bernie was disenfranchised!

It's what the Clinton's do.

It's the only way they know or are comfortable being in the world.

It's certainly the only way they know to effect their tyrannical compulsions on the rest of us.

My reply was to stress they are disenchanted and like those SURE Ron would get in...and he...like Bernie...did not.

Going back over US elections throughout our history...there were always the Ron's and Bernies, election to election. Once defeated...their supporters sulked away astounded they were wrong about their candidate.

I'd say that they were definitely disenfranchised...and seemingly nowhere to turn, reanalyzing where to put their votes now....

Same here...seen it in past elections back to when I 1st started voting. I still say we're screwed here this time around...some choice!

Thanks

We don't love Hillary, someone is filling your head with lots of propaganda.

Think about it, who does this belief benefit? Hillary.

It's nothing more than an attempt by those for Hillary to convince the republicans that we are still the enemy so they can "chase" us back as well as try to convince us that, being in opposition puts us into the minority so that we vote for Hillary to fit in. Also to convince others that the divide is not so bad, that the people upset aren't really serious and it's no big deal.

There's nothing Hillary would like better than to convince everyone, including the Bernie supporters that the ones who won't vote for her they are in the minority.
