The DNC is cutting it's own throat.

The only thing they will support Bernie "in" is bringing disillusioned people into the DNC.

That is not gonna work.

The people are sick unto death of the wealthy few catering to the wealthy few establishment government.

While the DNC may not be anywhere near toxic as the GOP - it still has a long ways to go to being good for the public at large!

Bernie's supporters see Bernie's campaign platform as very necessary!

Voting for HRC no matter what she "says" to the public is not an option - voting for her is just like voting the republican ticket.

HRC's only interest in trying to steal Bernie's platform for herself "is" to garner public support - she has no intention of actually supporting Bernie's platform.

Bernie's supporters know this - have looked at her history in public office and know better - that is why many will not vote for her no matter what!

Bernie has rightfully critiqued a portion of the DNC harshly = it is what it is

It may well be time that the DNC/GOP monopoly on the white house as well as other state and federal offices is ended!

This could very well be THAT point in history - when vast numbers of people are aware that government as it is is failing them and the environment.

Remove Super Delegates (just what the f**k do they have to do with democracy in the 1st place?) from the process (520 who declared for HRC prior to the race even beginning) and sHillary only leads by 283 "pledged" delegates at this point in time.

Remove UN-democratic "closed" primary results?

Bernie correctly says He can't do it alone it's gonna take all offices!

Finally Bernie on an endorsement run (as he rightly says = he can not do it alone):

The political revolution is not just about electing a president. We need a Congress with members who believe, like Bernie, that we cannot change a corrupt system by taking its money.

So let me introduce you to Tim Canova, a progressive challenger who is running against Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a Democratic primary in Florida this year.

Tim endorsed Bernie’s presidential campaign, and was inspired to run because of Wasserman Schultz’ support of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. His campaign is funded like ours, by lots of people giving small amounts of money.

And on issues like taking on Wall Street, making tuition free at public colleges, and reforming our broken campaign finance system, he is someone you can be proud to support. That's why Bernie is endorsing Tim's campaign, and why we’re proud to ask:

Splitting a $2.70 contribution between Bernie 2016 and Tim Canova for Congress will help elect progressives up and down the ballot while sending an UNMISTAKABLE message about our political revolution’s commitment to electing candidates who share our values.

A few weeks ago, we raised a tremendous amount of money for three progressive candidates for Congress. Your support changed their races overnight. In the days ahead, we’re going to add a dozen or more additional candidates to that list.

We’re doing this because it is too late for establishment politics and establishment economics. We need real change. We need U.S. Senators, members of Congress and state legislators who have the guts to take on the big money interests whose greed is destroying the American middle class.

Tim Canova is one of those candidates, and I hope you’ll join Bernie in support of his campaign:

Split a $2.70 contribution between Bernie 2016 and Tim Canova for Congress today. This is important.

Thank you for powering this political revolution.

All my best,

Jeff Weaver Campaign Manager Bernie 2016

Everyone is aware, they have been for some time. The question is not about feelings and desires and all that other crap that plagues political energy, its about ACTIONS. As in, what are people actually doing about it.

As it stands now the DNC is better off than they were a year ago, as they have grown their numbers, their registrations and will undoubtedly tap into the most active donors for the Bernie camp once they toss him back into the woods of Vermont.

At the end of this election, this is what the people will have actually accomplished: Nada. Absolutely nothing. No new structures set up, no new political options established. Literally nothing.

We don't need anymore discussions on how fucked up things are, we have to get our heads out of our asses and put together a strategy that relies on people and not the DNC/RNC as the solution.

In other words, we have to do what people have been doing for centruries to affect change.

Kinda shows how comfy we really are over here in the Empire.

Tue 4/26/2016 sucked - but I expected it to as 4 of the 5 primaries were closed = disenfranchised voters.

California is supposed to be an open primary - it will be interesting to see how that one turns out.
