Ask the Sanders people for SUBSTANCE and to back their rhetoric, and they give DIVERSION.

Ask for Sanders' folks to put their revolution into real action with the SCOTUS appointment and the election day as a national holiday bill, and they DIVERT. No substance AT ALL. No substance on how this revolution is actually going to form in any real way and make real things happens, even when they have a classic chance to do so and show us right now.

Ask them to explain how all these big promises are actually going to get accomplished, and they give us " the revolution will do it."

Ask them to explain how they are going to deal with the ONSLAUGHT of Republican attacks if Bernie gets the nomination, and we get "the revolution will take care of it".

Round and round the mulberry bush, chasing their tails, and diverting to beat the band. That's their game.

5. Aptly named. Hillary Clinton would prefer not to discuss issues and record.

Her record shows she has been on both sides of many of the issues. So she chooses to divert.

And her ideas are rather weak.

Very clever name!

But she never said she could. So it's moot.

7. The revolution, such as it is, went over your head and you didn't even see its shadow.

 

The revolution will come at the ballot box and no amount of stomping your feet or attempts at shaming will stop it.

Best you can do is get out of the way, grab a chair, and watch it pass by.

14. Seriously there is a real leadership opportunity here.

All criticism about the Revolution aside, if Bernie could effectively lead on this issue, it would score him some real leadership points, which honestly, he needs. So far all talk and a list of freebies as promises but no actual plan for doing it except the Revolution.

It never happens.

The SCOTUS situation is a golden opportunity to bring the revolution to the table.

Let's see what this revolution is all about and let's see if they can help us get a liberal Surpeme Court.

38. Funny I've posted my opinion of the People's Revolution.

 

First of all, the Revolution or People's Movement is happening across the world. In Bulgaria people were in the streets protesting the damage that fracking was doing to their environment while SoS Clinton and Chevron were putting pressure on the Bulgarian government to continue fracking. This is an example. In South America the people managed to kick Neslies out because Neslies had taken control of all the drinking water and were ripping off The People for drinking water.

Here in the USofA we have Citizens United that Clinton is embracing and using to raise money to gain the WH. The People are against CU. We want to get Big Money out of politics much to the chagrin of Goldman-Sachs and Clinton.

Here is a partial listing of what we are fighting the Oligarchy over:

We want to Strengthening Social Security (e.g., raising the cap)
We are Opposed to job killing "Free Trade" agreements
We are opposed to fracking for oil company profits over people's water
We want to help college students afford college (telling them to get a job doesn't cut it)
We support making major corps pay their fair share of taxes
We want to end the unregulated domestic spying
Also end drone killing of terrorist "suspects" in foreign lands (100 innocents killed for each suspect)
We are for reducing the defense budget
We are for taking a hard stand against torture and indefinite detention.
We support the end of the militarization of our local police forces.
We want to end Prisons for Profits
We support legalizing marijuana esp. for medical use.
We believe in the need for funding rebuilding our neglected infrastructure.
We support single payer health insurance.
We want to see the regulation of Wall Street (e.g. reinstate Glass-Steagall)
We want to break up the big bank and media monopolies.

I don't speak for The People. The above is my opinion. From the fact that you continually disparage The People's Movement I assume you want to continue the status quo. Goldman-Sachs doesn't care about those living in poverty.

40. The list above is very specific. Maybe you want more basic goals for the Revolution.

 

End Big Money in politics. As long as Goldman-Sachs can buy candidates, all else is lost.

Stop the Wealthy 1% from stealing all the resources from the 99%. This is another one that we can't allow to continue.

Get the NSA/CIA Black State under control.

End the continuous wars for profits.

Again, what do you find so terrible about the People's Movement?

25. What's sad here is that we support a revolution to do something about the 16,000,000 children

 

living in poverty and you scoff because you don't like People's revolutions. You like Goldman-Sachs and the wealthy. I would dare say that you are not a real Democrat to worship at the alter of wealth.

The revolution is a People's movement around the world to over-throw the Oligarchs that you seem to worship.

While thousands, tens of thousands wait in the snow to see Sen Sanders, Clinton is having tea and crumpets with Mr. Goldman-Sachs as he slips a half million dollars into her wallet.

There are two sides to this class war and Democrats side with the 99% and Sen Sanders. The other side is the Wealthy 1% and their bought and paid for politicians (DINO's) and worshiping followers.
