Remember, Remember, 2000, November.

Vote.

Get out and vote.

Nothing is certain.

Nothing is guaranteed.

The people who want Trump to be President will do anything to ensure that it happens. They will riot. They will scream. They will threaten.

But they won't have to do anything of those things if you just stay home.

If your favored candidate didn't get the nod, and you don't want to vote for the lesser of two evils, vote the the lesser of two goods; the candidate who was chosen over your favorite.

If you think 'I survived Bush; I can survive Trump', just remember: a lot of people didn't survive Bush. Not on 9/11, not in the US Armed Forces, not in Iraq, not in Afghanistan, and not the economic crash of 2008. Stop thinking of yourself, and think of others.

Vote.

Remember, remember, 2000, November.

1. If she is the candidate, then a lot of people won't survive Hillary either.

If Hillary is nominated, the choices will be different this time.

A lot of Bernie supporters are veterans of the Bush years. We all learned a lot about compromising.

Want to make a lot out of that? And he's a former track star in great shape while she has some known medical issues. Want to bring those up?

56. One of her faining spells

 

Was caused by a blood clot. She is now on Coumadin a blood thinner. Is is reason why we did not see much of them hitting him for his age. If Clinton was in better health Brock would went after him like mad. I mean the Clinton Surrogates actually lied about Sanders being indifferent to African Americans because he is white Jewish person and the called him racist.

18. She WILL be the candidate. He won't be able to get 84% of the remaining pledged and

unpledged delegates.

And Hillary will be light years better than Trump.

20. She is a war mongered. We don't need another war.

We shall see what percentage of the votes in the coming elections Bernie needs and will get. I think it is more like 65% needed. He could easily get that in Oregon and the big one, California.

21. He would need 65% of all remaining pledged delegates, including CA and NJ and D.C.

and all the other states -- just to catch up in pledged delegates. Other than Vermont, can you name any primary where he has carried 65% of the delegates?

And there are still 719 supers, and he only has 39 of them.

3. Voting the lesser of twork evils is voting evil.

The biggest most profound scam perpetrated on Americans by their political system of all time.

It's time to break that cycle ... time to challenge dogmatic solutions that haven't been working. Time to cast aside the bonds of familiarity and embrace the challenge of making real change. Sure there is risk, but the consequences of not taking that risk are worse.

is legitimizing the NRA and the murders of the CT schoolchildren.

If Hillary is responsible for Bush, then Bernie is responsible for the NRA.

My dear friend.

I vote Hill. I have a nephew that supports BS. His wife supports Hill. Four years married, New baby girl. In the end he will vote Hill for the sweetest child you have ever seen. He will vote for a woman's future. He will vote for sweet Callie.

Thanks, Hillary 2016. We got this.

7. You can see what my plea for sanity is doing. It's falling on deaf ears.

No one was more disappointed over Hillary's Iraq War vote than I was. But she apologized, I accepted, and moved on. The BernieBots are in such a snit they'd rather have an openly war-mongering Donald Trump for President than vote for Hillary Clinton.

I think the fact that being comfortable with a President Trump abrogates everything Bernie stands for, and is living proof that there is some troll DNA in their gene pool...

Sheshe2, my dear and loving friend (sorry, polished off an entire bottle of Garcon Argentinian Malbec this evening...) I'm voting for Hillary Clinton proudly and without a qualm. And I hope to see you here celebrating on Election Day...

10. I have not been here much.

Alert stalked out of here for the last 6 months. Back with Skinners amnesty, I stay pretty quiet.

Am I pleased with everything Hill did, no. First and best. She and Obama settled their differences. I respect that, I was always an Obama girl, yet love what they have become together. Her vote, that was a troubling time, yes, she apologized. There is another that has never apologized for their gun support nor their F35's built in their state. I find that disturbing.

Yes. I will be here on election day, we will celebrate! Madam President!

Love you.

That would be Sanders .

We have superdelegates for a reason: to prevent unsuitable candiadates like Clinton from ruining the election by gaming the primaries.

I know people who have died thanks to the GOP policies. Appalachia has been devastated by the GOP. Things were improving here during Bill Clinton's presidency. Hillary's plans for Appalachia will bring relief to Appalachia, whether they vote for her or not.

Thanks for your wise words. The posters who reject your message are either fools, trolls, or both.
