I am tired of being represented by politicians that walk the line between voter and donor.

(That's why I Feel The Bern)

Bernie shows ABSOLUTELY that a campaign can be successfully funded by the public's individual non-wealthy donations ( http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/sanders-raises-record-breaking-dollar44m-in-march/ar-BBrdIK0?OCID=ansmsnnews11 ). So let us hope and pray that more politicians (for the people) will follow his lead.

There is still hope, big decision days coming up, I voted in Maricopa County! So don't anybody be crying about long lines or it being hard to vote.

There "is" plenty of time left for Bernie to make a huge come back!

sHillary did well in the start of the delegate process as it started in red states - where sHillary Rotten Clinton is considered the next best thing to being a republican in name = she is a DINO with more in common with the toxic GOP than any connection to stated dem values.

Now however the process moves out of red state majority and into saner country where Bernie is popular for good reason = history/record of supporting the public - and a public that is actually begining to look at the records = HRC lip service to public while catering to the wealthy few & Bernie talking the talk while also WALKING THE WALK.

Only real fuck-up waiting to happen is the super delegates not backing the public's choice and doing their own thing in support of the current establishment. But perhaps many of those super d's will see them cutting their careers short if the public sees them backing sHillary in opposition to the public's wishes. Interesting time ahead. Arizona was blatant in blocking voters out of the process that were Bernie supporters - wonder if any redress will come of that.

Who ever wins the most pledged delegates will get the support of the super delegates, Bernie needs a big win in New York and he could still win this.

Yep a win in NY for Bernie would be very big - I think that is why sHillary as well as corp(se)oRAT media keep calling it her home state . . . All this time.

Bernie = Born & raised in NY moved to Vermont as an adult

sHillary = born in the deep south ummm ahem scuse Chicago and cut her teeth in Arkansas bounced out to NY

Who is the New Yorker? I am pretty sure many New Yorker's would rather claim Bernie over sHillary.

YEP a win for Bernie would be yuge and quite possibly be the turning point in the campaign - Cmon supporters of OWS turn out and shutdown the wall street choice!

Thanks for the link = overall a good interview that the public should see and consider.

So it was also worthy to tweet:

Bernie Sanders at Morning Joe, MSNBC, 4,8,16: I won't do... https://youtu.be/odnqgsVwQvo via @YouTube BTW HRC ur official record = not personal


Wish I could have added more than =

"BTW HRC ur official record = not personal"

Such as continued to say = (add in after personal) "attack" or fully to say =

"BTW HRC ur official record = Bernie presenting it to the public is not a personal attack - it is a point of record that goes to who you are professionally in office as compared to what you claim in your campaign = opposite"

Unfortunately twitter makes it impossible to be more clear with the very short limit of characters one can type in a tweet.

They have to do it outside of the D/R racket though. To do this, their pr skills are going to have to get much much better.

People!

Start your own conversation on social media:

example: https://twitter.com/DKAtoday/status/716058825816670208

Challenge what is presented to you and the rest of the public by so called news services "AND" make it a public challenge!
