By entering the race as a Democrat Bernie Sanders has become a human threshing machine separating the ego whores from those who wish to fight for real change.

Which are you?

Some thoughts that I sent off to share with the wheat thresher (the chaff remover):

It is OK - it is actually great that you do not want to run an attack campaign on Hillary Clinton. But you know as well as I do that she is not for the people of the USA - but is more in line with the cater to the wealthy (herself included) and corp(se)oRATion (faux people) on-going trend of current government (spanning back over 40 years).

Don't run an attack campaign - but you should call on her to present HER stance on monumental issues like TPP - so far she has not taken a public stance - and that is just plain wrong on such an all encompassing issue and threat to democracy - especially when that person is running for the office of the president.

You have gone on record continuously - for what? - 40 Years Now?

You have a solid history of support for the American people.

BUT - no one is perfect - we don't always articulate completely or clearly - and some of our past comments - our opponents will take (deliberately) out of context. BUT - there are also comments that just really didn't get expressed very well - those can then be used to toss crap in your face.

You have got to be ready for them - because your opponents do not feel as you do about not wanting to run an attack campaign. Your opponents do not feel as you do that the government is failing in it's duty to the American People - and even if some of them do - they feel it is not in "their" interest to change how things currently are. They will come after you with any and all tactics.

Take the military spending debacle of the F-35 program. They (your opponents) are putting it forward that you support it. Never mind that it is one of the worst military spending and acquirement programs EVER. I believe that you are truly disgusted by the program. But one of your past public comments where you were disgusted with it - you said that it won't get cancelled.

Now I am pretty sure you said that because it was a program that was on-going and would not get cancelled. You yourself are not in a position to end that program by yourself.

But your opponents are saying that your comment meant that you supported the F-35 program regardless of it's very poor product as well as very poor money management - Because it provides jobs for your constituents. They are saying that you support the F-35 program as a home state pork project.

You gotta shoot that down in a no uncertain terms/manner.

But - also - and very seriously - The President of the United States can not get done what needs to get done without proper support - not just in the federal government but also in the state's governments.

You need the support of people who are in government that are as like you as possible in supporting the people of this country. And If they aren't in government you really need to find them and introduce them to the public to be put into office.

These people whom you would support to stay in office or get into office in the 1st place - THEY need to be solidly in support of the people and must go on record as to their positions (just like you) and show that they are without a doubt in support of retaking government for the peace heath and prosperity of ALL.

I truly hope that your staff will share this e-mail directly with you.

Where the chaff gets separated from the wheat.

Bernie running as a dem - could certainly kick the lethargic of the dems into action or get em kicked out of office as he shows what true democracy should be all about = the people and not corp(se)oRATions (faux people). Further galvanizing the public to make real change in government.

His stances should further undermine the rethuglicans in office and could well wake-up the blind supporters of such to the reality that they have no representation in office - that the rethuglicans are not republicans and need to be given the boot by the population which has mistakenly supported them up till now.

The 1% will do all they can to stop it but Bernie can win, there is no reason Americans must let the rich decide every issue.

Absoluetly - fortunately money has not become actual votes all by itself - money is still only air time for propaganda. The people can still defeat money with actual votes - if only they will look at the issues and see where candidates stand and where and how they have acted in the past.

Bernie has been rock solid for the people ever since the beginning some 40 years ago.

And that is where his attackers really fail - they only have BS rhetoric/propaganda to throw at him.

At least on here the only people opposing Bernie are the third party bullshiters who dream of having their own power they don't give a crap about the people who are hurting.

I think you are mistaken about that. Yes they are full of shit - but they also only talk about the idea of a third party - they don't forward anything that people could actually participate in.

They don't dream of their own power - as their activities support their being a slave to the top of the 1% - as that is where their activities coordinate = in supporting the control of the 1% and the national and multinational corp(se)oRATions.
