I supported HRC in 2008

I supported her all through her campaign up to the moment when she conceded the race to BHO.

It was not easy, especially on this DU forum. Passions were heated and I was maligned and attacked for my support of HRC over BHO.

From the point when Obama won the nomination on, I supported BHO as the Democratic nominee with all the enthusiasm I could muster.

I voted for him in 2008 and 2012.

Now, I am supporting Bernie Sanders.

I will continue to support Bernie until he wins the nomination or concedes the race to HRC.

It's not going to be easy, especially on this DU forum. Passions are heated and I will be maligned and attacked for my support of BS over HRC.

But I'm used to it.

I will support my candidate until he wins or concedes.

Trying to make me abandon my loyalties is pointless.

All I can say is, if HRC wins, God forbid, I will support her with all the enthusiasm I can muster.

So think about that, and try not to diminish whatever enthusiasm I may have left down the road, should my candidate lose.

Some don't learn from history

3. You are right, I guess you didn't learn from 1968.

 

Maybe you are too young to remember then.

Google it.

10. And some bow before the wealthy. This is war and I am fighting you and all that would

 

support the wealthy over those among us that need help. For 30 years the wealthy have been draining us of our resources and yet some calling themselves Democrats will support them and kiss their feet.

It's the wealthy and their minions that don't learn from history. You can only hold us down so long and eventually we will drag the looters into the street.

11. I believe in unity of purpose.

Today, we are still on opposite sides.

But soon we will have to choose one candidate or the other.

And you and I have more in common than we have differences.

We both think we have chosen the best candidate to advance our party.

And that deserves respect.

8. If you don't mind me asking, why are you so opposed to HRC this time around?

I'm just curious as to what's changed since 2008. Thanks.

9. Since you asked...

I have had time now to see HRC support diametrically opposed positions with equal passion and sincerity.

I have seen her state one position and support another.

I do not think that, if she gets elected, she will deliver on any point on the progressive agenda.

I have seen the results of her work as Senator of NY and as Secretary of State.

I believe she is a war hawk.

14. I never really "had a candidate" before, part of me wishes I didn't this time

Fuck this emotional attachment shit, now I remember why becoming emotionally involved is so often a mistake.
