There's only one true MLK & FDR Progressive, Liberal, or Dem running for POTUS, and that's Bernie Sanders.

But we also have to sweep the DOWN BALLOT!

Congressional and State Legislators and Governors have GOT TO BE REPLACED by more true Dem, Progressive, Liberals. Or the same obstruction and sabotage that happened to Obama will happen to Bernie (and us) only worse, should he get elected.

Bernie has to be nominated first, and that requires Registration to Vote in the Primary! Or all bets are off!

Absolutely and this is another thought shared out on other social media as well as here on the forum:

One of Obama’s greatest failures in two campaigns and his 1st term of office and to this point in time in his 2nd and final term in office (imo) — is that he did not direct the people to look at the issues (gov web site links to legislation and voting records) that are important to them and have them look at who supported them and who opposed them.

He did not direct people where to go on-line to contact their representation in government on that representations web sites (gov e-mail) as well as to make public statements onto social media (twitter FB etc) to put pressure on those currently in office to do their jobs and to direct them to get busy or to get out of office — while getting other people on the social media sites interested and then involved as well when they saw the postings.

These failures left him with people (public) who liked his message — but who then did not put others into office with him to support the peoples issues — and we ended up with a do nothing government because of major GOP obstructionism.

Yep and on that note some advice I sent off to Bernie and also shared out on other social media:

from - 2016 and the need for a political revolution. It is not Just about the presidency!

Now the needed political revolution needs public support/involvement in the political process.

I have asked Bernie if he would please use his campaign to get people involved.

To direct the public to where they can see proposed legislation on public access government web sites — to educate themselves not only on proposed legislation but also on who authored it and who supports it and who opposes it.

Voting records also show clearly who was in support of good legislation as well as who was in support of bad legislation.

Yes he asks for people to get involved — BUT — I think he could do a better job of it if he directed people to initiatives that are already in process and to contact their current elected officials to get on board in support as well. Also if he directed people to get their current representation to support Bernie’s current campaign agenda “publicly”.

In directing the public to existing initiatives that they can access (get involved with) on-line (as well as in person if the initiative has local base of operation) — Bernie can make an immediate impact on what government is doing and is not doing RIGHT NOW.

Directing Public support to issues and existing initiatives puts pressure on those who are currently in office — especially if the public contacts their current representation to get on board in support or to get out of office.

Part of Bernie’s campaign (in my mind) should be directing the public to question their current representation in government and if that representation is not doing their part in forwarding the peoples issues — then the public should be directed to remove those from office with representation that is on board with Bernie’s campaign agenda supporting The People.

Further my response to many looking for donations (also shared out on other social media):

Bernie is working and has been working for The People - even now while he campaigns he is forwarding legislation that is in support of The People.

He needs others in office that are also working for The People - Working Right NOW - where are those in office that should be backing Bernie's Agenda FOR The People?

I get requests for donations in support of people running for office and from those who are currently in office. I have taken to responding to such requests in the following manner and I feel everyone should do something of the same:

Can I Give??? Give me a reason to!

Where the hell are you on Bernie's campaign agenda for the people? Where the hell are you on Elizabeth Warren's agenda? Where the hell are you on Move To Amend? Where the hell are you on One Subject At A Time Legislation? Where the hell are you on forwarding a minimum LIVING WAGE ??? Where the hell are you on ending subsidies to Fossil Fuel? Where the hell are you on ANYTHING that is vital for the health of the public nation wide? Where the hell are you on ANYTHING that is vital for the health of the environment nation wide/world wide? Where the hell are you on global warming and rebuilding our energy infrastructure to be clean?

WHY IN THE HELL WOULD I WANT TO GIVE TO YOU ???

It is just not enough that you are not a member of the anti-environment anti-people homicidal GOP - you have to be visibly and outspokenly working for The People RIGHT NOW !!!

Earn the support that you want to get into office and to stay in office.


Yep =

Bernie has been on Thom Hartmann's shows for two decades taking random calls from the public, every Friday for Brunch with Bernie. So we should all know Bernie inside and out. And there are still over a dozen various other Prog-Talk hosts online and TV. Who are accessible to all. Radio has been mostly closed off for anything but sports and RW-Hate-Lie talk. Which is (amongst many other reasons) why we need to repeal the Clinton Telecommunications Act! Feel the BERN, you stupid unicorn-chasing bastards!

As more people get to know Bernie - the more popular Bernie is with the people.

It doesn't hurt when there are also things like = https://t.co/OcLEFY9Gv4 and https://t.co/lQCUUovR2i making the social media rounds.

Looking forward to a good night for Bernie in New Hampshire.

Learn how to vote in your state: http://voteforbernie.org/

Voter turnout in primaries is incredibly low, so your vote really matters. Bernie can win the General Election, but he needs to win the Primary first! Let’s flood the ballots with our votes and elect Bernie Sanders as the 45th president of the United States of America!

Your next step

Find your state below (or in the map above) to learn how to vote. It typically takes less than 10 minutes. Whatever you do, please please please please please do not wait until the last moment to register or cast your vote. Registration is open in every state right now. Many states offer online registration, 32 states (+ Washington DC) offer no-excuse early in-person voting, and some states also offer vote-by-mail (called ‘absentee voting’) so you don’t even need to leave your home!

No excuses. Let’s win this election!

''The New Global Financial Cold War'' by Dr.Michael Hudson [w/KPFA's excellent Bonnie Faulkner]

We can bicker over personal umbrage and squabble over doctrine for ever and a day BUT at some point, we all need people of true intellectual integrity and clarity to cut through the crap and - tell us how it is!!! I'm NOT one of those rare people, btw!! But Dr.Hudson absolutely is! HRC tho' - can eat shit & die, imo!!
