Normally, I go and vote in the presidential race for the lesser of two evils which is generally a Democrat. This time, I think I will ignore the Presidential race and vote on the down ballot races. I am in NJ which is a disaster all alone without help, but my congressman is a superdelegate pledging to support Clinton. If he does, I will support any primary opponent that he may find. Just when I thought he was progressive, it is clear that he is bought and paid for as well, so find out who the superdelegates are in your own state and demand that they vote with the votes of the people.

You'll "ignore the Presidential race"?!!! Really?!! Why?! Would the contents of this link - persuade you otherwise https://berniesanders.com/issues/ ? Do you owe yourself the information therein? Yes, imo.

Hillary Rotten Clinton is best exposed .. by herself; with her own words; from her own lips:

From which ... ''In 1986, Sam Walton, the founder of Wal-Mart, was under pressure to appoint a woman to the company’s 15-member -all male- board of directors. So, Mr. Walton asked a young lawyer, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who just happened to be married to the governor of Arkansas at the time, where Wal-Mart is based, to be the sole female member of the board.

''During six years (1986 -1992) as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors, Hillary Clinton remained silent as the world’s largest retailer waged a major campaign against the labor unions seeking to represent store workers.

Finally: ''The ties between the Clintons and the Walton family continue to this day. Alice Walton, the daughter of Wal-Mart’s founder Sam Walton, is a big supporter of Hillary Clinton becoming the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016. According to filings with the FEC, Alice Walton gave $25,000, the maximum allowed under federal law, to the super PAC Ready for Hillary. According to Clinton Foundation’s disclosures, the Walmart Foundation and the Walton Family Foundation each have given between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.''


Thanx for that one elf, I'm going to be using it in my work for Bernie. Strongly recommend that ^video^ to you too. Solidarity and in compliment to your forum-post, I append this link for your perusal re. Walmart:

''Walmart had been ordered to pay $150 million to 187,000 Pennsylvania workers for wage theft that occurred between 1998-2006. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court had sided with the employees in 2014, ruling that they were forced to work off-the-clock and denied breaks. Wells Fargo had been ordered by a federal appellate judge in 2014 to pay California consumers $203 million, for misleading them on overdraft policies in violation of state consumer protection laws. That ruling upheld a 2010 District Court decision.'' Also fyi - please consider ...

''There are desperate single mothers struggling to raise children on less than $10,000 a year in some Philadelphia neighborhoods. Many of these children go to bed hungry. There are unemployed workers desperate to find a job and restore their dignity. There are mentally ill and homeless we have abandoned to the streets. There are Iraqi and Afghan families living in terror, a terror we have inflicted on them, in the futile and endless wars waged to enrich the arms industry. There are men and women being tortured in our worldwide archipelago of secret detention centers. There are undocumented workers whose families we have ripped apart, separating children from parents, or imprisoned.

''This is reality. It is the only reality that matters. It is a reality we must and will change. Because, as the great socialist Eugene V. Debs, who upon being sentenced in 1918 for violating the Sedition Act by defying the madness of World War I, said, “I recognized my kinship with all living beings. I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth. I said then, and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it, and while there is a criminal element I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.”

''Augustine wrote that hope has two beautiful daughters, anger and courage—anger at the way things are and the courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.

''The fight will be hard and difficult. It will require love and self-sacrifice. It will require anger and courage. It is the greatest moral imperative before us. Those who do not defy the evil become its accomplice. We may not succeed. But we must be among those of whom future generations will say: They tried. They dared to dream. They dared to care. They dared to love. They enabled those who followed to press on in the struggle.'' - from ...

I've watched Abby Martins's show on Hillary before. Consider me mysogynic if you like, but my opinion, Hillary is one evil person.

''Republican financier Koch says Clinton might make better president''

That a Koch Brother could support HRC ... just speaks volumes really!

It is NOT ''misogynistic'' to suggest that a woman could be "evil" and

It is certainly not so to suggest that HRC is ''evil'' because she is!

This one fact about HRC's past should get the attention of millions of people to oppose her.

It should be mentioned in New York Prior to the primary

There is SO MUCH information LIKE THIS about her past that is available on the internet - it just boggles my mind that it is not being used!

Fuck the touted GOP presidential threat = they do not have a chance in hell of winning against Bernie.

Elizabeth! Wake The Fuck Up and speak up in endorsement of the only one on the ticket that closely supports the same issues you have spoken to the public about!

Why are you still begging EW to be a decent human being?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (33169) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Begging? You r so screwed up.

[-] 1 points by turbocharger (1756) 1 year ago

Well that is kind of what it is when you are asking politicians to act like decent human beings.. Not total cowards.

OK, so begging might be a little much, but asking is certainly well in the realm.

Why bother asking her this? She obviously doesnt give a shit.

DKAtoday is non-sexist so he may fail to notice Elizabeth Warren as a WOMAN supporting Mx. Cheese.
