Forum Post: To All Let This Be Told

Bernie Sanders, with his win in Nevada, has sewn up the lead for the Democratic nomination. Those of us who were willing to back either him, or Warren, depending on which of them got the greater momentum, must now throw their weight fully behind Bernie Sanders! The window in time, in which it remains possible to prevent environmental collapse and geo-political disaster on this planet, is rapidly closing. There is no time for indecision. Those of us who were with the Occupy Movement in 2011 must all feel the sense of urgency fostered by the time already lost.
We must put humanity over profit, the living creatures of this planet over the demands of the human ego for wealth and power and it must happen right now.
Since the political events of 1968, there has been a concerted effort by the rich and powerful to discourage the common people's faith in democracy, by corrupting the American political process. What we need do now is prove them wrong!
We must light on fire for Sanders!!!

Portentous indeed but The Enemy is within! Inside the MSM!! And RW DNC!!! Want proof? Consider ...

From 1st Link: ''ANTI-SANDERS DEMOCRATS and Michael Bloomberg are raining attacks down on the frontrunner. This week on 'Intercepted' ... As Bloomberg launches a massive attack ad campaign against Sanders ahead of the South Carolina & Super Tuesday primaries, Sanders is now facing a multipronged battle against the most powerful political and economic forces in the country - (&) From Columbia, South Carolina, Rev. Jesse Jackson discusses the red-baiting against Sanders, offers his views on Democratic Socialism - and also suggests that Bloomberg should have run against Donald Trump in The Republican Primary. Rev.Jackson, who won the South Carolina primary in 1984 and 1988, discusses his presidential runs & Joe Biden’s claims of involvement with the civil rights movement.'' + Beware ... Ex-GOP Warren!

THE fundamental realization about RW, reactionary DINOs is that they'd rather tRUMP won, than Bernie did .. as they are all for the existing status quo of Oily/Oli-garchy, Banksters & RW Neocon Warmongers!

The tragedy of US' 99% has been to be 'Boiling Frogs' suffering 'Stockholm Syndrome' - but not for long, as the long awaited 'Mass Awakening' seems to be upon us!! IF DNC fk Bernie - 3rd Party Next Time?!!!

e tenebris, lux?

''Democratic Leaders willing to risk Party Damage to STOP Bernie Sanders''! from

''Interviews with dozens of Democratic Party officials, including 93 superdelegates, found overwhelming opposition to handing Sanders the nomination if he fell short of a majority of delegates.'' Spero meliora!

So of course "Bernie Beats Trump'' all day & everyday & twice on Sunday! BUT the sad truth, is that the Biggest Problem is The Corporate Co-opted & Controlled, Unrepresentative, Nasty, Treacherous, Scum; who are the Democrap Establishment & the DNC dicks, still in thrall to The DLC!! But WTF's that?!!! NB:

at spes non fracta!

Indeed, the enemy is within, but they will be defeated. The status quo is through in America. They just don't know it yet.

For some idiotic reason, Americans have never seemed to warm to third parties. I don't know if you're from here, or you've lived here for long, but the sheer intractability - the sedimentary ossification of the American mind is an awesome thing to behold! I know one thing for certain. It takes an avalanche to wake them up, and sometimes that doesn't even do it! It's as if we're mesmerized and in a way we are. We are all mesmerized by this virtual world we live in, so one must be clever and audacious to hope to break into that narcolepsy. But you know all that. Cheers

Warren was both GOP & Dem, just like Hellary Rotten Clinton because moving from one to the other is quite easy, when both represent the same Corporate Banker & War Machine & Inherited Wealth Class! Americans aren't idiots but have been Mind Managed to Manufacture Consent for their own servitude & that starts with mis-education & propaganda in schools & colleges & then the Corp. MSM take over.

All other things being equal ... Democracy itself will always tend towards Socialism, when left to its own devices because people will always vote for their own Collective Best Interests & so The 99% folk have to be manipulated into blaming & pointing fingers at each other, in order prevent them uniting & pointing their fingers upwards at the 1% Kapo Class & their 0.01% Oligarchy/Parasite Class Overlords.

Alas, "divide et impera / divide & rule" - is one of the oldest ruling class tricks in the book but these days the access to Social Media means the Billionaire Press/TV Corp. owners can't manipulate The 99% like before. Both US Dems & GOP were born as a '3rd Party' in reaction to the existing status quo btw - and finally on the matter of ex-Republican, Elizabeth Warren - please try to consider:

''A few weeks ago, Warren said she'd never accept Super PAC money. Now, she's got the biggest Super PAC after Trump! This is a stunning reversal from someone who - up until recently - regularly denounced dark money and corruption in politics. After this, how can anyone trust Warren?'' Answer is .. They Can't! By the way, there once was a time when Obama campaigned for Bernie Sanders:

et veritas vos liberabit!

The open primaries and caucuses offered by the Democratic Party were just a ruse for dissipating the energy and preventing the formation of an independent third party with similar dispositions. The Democratic Party was by far the more racist party since the time of the Reconstruction after the American Civil War.

White supremacists were largely members of the Democratic Party. The Civil Rights [ and the police riot outside the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago ] Movement, Antiwar Movement, Black Power, etc. forced the allowance of open primaries and caucuses but this is not really genuine, as evidenced by the various candidates ganging up through endorsements against Bernie Sanders who is an Independent ( "not a real Democrat" ). After allowing him to run for the Democratic nomination, the Democratic Party is being disingenuous in rigging against Bernie. Which candidate(s) has(have) the concrete plan(s) for handling the COVID-19 invasion? Rally to Trump Thought, and the U.S.A. is pensed !

Bernie must win big so DNC can't steal it from him.

Vote Bernie Sanders tomorrow, 2/29 in South Carolina Primary and on Super Tuesday, Tuesday, 3/3 in the following states:

Alabama Arkansas California Colorado Maine Massachusetts Minnesota North Carolina Oklahoma Tennessee Texas Utah Vermont Virginia

Super Tuesday represents 40% of the American population. Do it for Bernie!

IF the DNC steals it from him, it will mark the end of the Democratic Party. 45% of Americans are Independents and along with Sanders' supporters a new third party, a People's Party will emerge.

If you want grandkids, vote for Bernie.

This tweet from the young people over at the Sunrise Movement made me tear up this morning because of the fundamental truth it is telling:

https://twitter.com/sunrisemvmt/status/1236095054718144515

"Dear family, You say you want grandkids.

But our generation’s future doesn’t look stable enough for kids. Not with the climate crisis looming. Not with student debt crushing us.

So here’s the deal. You're only getting grandkids if @BernieSanders wins this primary, not @JoeBiden"

WE REALLY NEED TO LISTEN TO OUR KIDS

''Amazon paid $0 in taxes on $11 billion in annual profits. But it asks workers to “donate” their paid leave to others who are sick.

''Workers and taxpayers are expected to be generous. Corporate CEOs—even during a pandemic—can be as stingy as they want.''! - from this tweet by Bernie:

The young people of USA are way ahead of their elders & reject their b-s! Now they must vote & exhort dumb boomers to look past their 401ks & ostentatious purchases & to think about .. their own kith & kin!

per aspera ad astra ...

Postive view of socialism climbing in America.

CBS News Poll:

California: 57% positive view of socialism, 45% positive view of capitalism

Texas: 56% positive view of socialism, 37% positive view of capitalism

Who says Sanders can't win!?!

Vote out the establishment. Vote for the vision to create an economy that works for all of us, not just the wealthy and corporations.

40% of Americans can't afford a $1000 emergency. Millions are uninsured. Millions are in student debt. Average pay is a low $27,000. Young people can't afford to have children or buy homes. And, we're heading in the wrong direction. Incremental change is simply not good enough!

We need the visionary, we need Bernie Sanders and the great big giant movement of millions of people behind him to turn this thing around and give us the decent life we all deserve.

"If Bernie Sanders had simply demonstrated that it is possible to wage a competitive campaign for the presidency without relying on wealthy donors, corporate funders, or secretive PAC money, he would have earned his place in history.

''If all Sanders had to show for his two campaigns for the presidency was the greatest leftward shift in the political discourse since Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s second term—putting not just Medicare for All but also the Green New Deal, free public higher education, fair taxation, cancellation of student debt, housing as a human right, universal free child care, and an unwavering critique of the billionaire class firmly onto the political agenda—we would owe him our gratitude.

''If his contribution to the debate on foreign policy never went beyond refusing to endorse trade deals that harm workers, denouncing America’s endless wars, and reasserting Congress’s control over presidential adventurism—and had not also included defying AIPAC and the Israel lobby, reminding Americans that many of those crossing our borders are fleeing dictators sustained by Washington, and maintaining his long-standing rejection of authoritarianism at home or abroad—we would still recognize Sanders as a prophetic figure.

''In this election the fundamental question is also the oldest one: Which side are you on? The Nation is on the side of hope, not fear. We’re on the side of radical change, not retrenchment and retreat. We are proud and excited to stand with the movements that have brought us to this moment and made this amazing, terrifying, exhilarating, and empowering campaign possible. And we are proud to endorse Bernie Sanders, a democratic socialist with a program realistic and radical enough to meet the test of our time, for president of the United States.''

dum spiro, spero ...

Sanders is a prophetic figure and how he's pushed the Democratic Party to the left is a victory unto itself but he's also continued the work of Occupy in awakening class consciousness in America.

I agree fully with that article in The Nation. The man deserves our utmost respect. Too bad the establishment and MSM can't give it to him. If they did, he'd be the next President without a doubt.

[-] 1 points by ImNotMe (1488) 3 weeks ago

Yes, Bernie "deserves our utmost respect. Too bad the establishment and MSM can't give it to him. If they did, he'd be the next President without a doubt'' but then also realize the truths here:

Most families are socialist. Ein Volk, ein Land, eine Kultur.

Someone fetches the water to fill the cisterns, including the annexed one of Grandma's. Someone takes out the garbage. Someone empties the filled-up chamber pot...

Someone pulls down the pants to spank the buttocks of the one who talks with prejudice or hasn't fulfilled one's duty. The shimmering rainbow-colored slipper was "the golden apple of strife" unless one understands what "innocent until proven guilty" means and insists upon it as Mom demands. Otherwise, Mom spanks.
