that means the Same Thing.Since we are constantly accused of "being Republicans," let's get our thinking caps on and Help Bernie avoid giving himself the Kiss of Death by using the words 'Hope" or "Change" during his campaign.My suggestions would be "Warm Optimistic Feeling" and "Evolution" If somehow Bernie Doesn't Win,the only reason is because WE OURSELVES have the power to overcome ANY and all obstacles and FAILED to try hard and Really Believe-Bernie's Gonna Win.

''The left hasn't just been right. It has also been popular. Some centrist Democrats like to say they'd govern more liberally, but the United States is a "center-right" country. There is very little truth in this. It's true that relatively few Americans describe themselves as liberal or progressive (although that number is rising), but Americans hold progressive positions on many issues.

''The independent left may not be an important voting bloc. But it holds the key to energizing disaffected voters across the political spectrum. They're the voters who believe that neither political party is speaking to their most deeply-felt needs: for a living wage, a secure retirement, a chance to put their kids to college and keep their family healthy.''

But I do like ''HOPE and CHANGE'' precisely because I believe that together, ''WE OURSELVES have the power to overcome ANY and all obstacles''! eg. - http://wagingnonviolence.org/feature/how-swedes-and-norwegians-broke-the-power-of-the-1-percent/ and perhaps via the shared knowledge of Education, Agitation and Organisation to be found for example here - http://www.leftforum.org/ Solidarity to you'th' because you are the ones who are most affected by the selfish BS of our generation and ones before!

I hope Universal Healthcare is discussed at http://www.leftforum.org/ and with that in mind ... I will leave three links here below but I get how busy you are getting ready for your trip to NYC. Good luck, be well; have a good one + solidarity.

The last link is by Wendell Potter, a former Health Ins.
