8. LOL and many young people ...

my son told me yesterday that he read a good article about how the time was right for Sanders to run for millennials as they are open to ideas he believes in and are 'basically tired' of the two party system. They are ready for a change!

My daughter, who just turned thirty and is a new internal medicine doctor, said she identifies most with Sanders. These kids are not tied to any letter of the alphabet, be it "R" or a "D"

That is a great thing, they are looking at issues.

The times they are a changing ... we can only hope.

7. Farron Cousins who is also heavily on Ring of Fire should probably be added here too...

 

He in some ways speaks up more for Bernie than other hosts on Ring of Fire each day.

Also:

Deez Nuts - 15 year old presidential candidate
Danny Devito

And it looks like the rank and file of IAM union prefers Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton that their leadership recently announced an endorsement for:

12. Bu..Bu..Bu..But none of them are Congress Critters

Okay, the Congress DOES have the lowest approval rating of any Congress ever BUT each individual Congress Critter is an outstanding paragon of virtue, hardly to be considered little more than a whore.

I'd be unhappier if they DID flock to Bernie. Their endorsement is meaningless.

21. Not quite. They are super delegates and have voting power at the convention.

But, if Bernie doesn't need them, okay.

20. Some of Hillary's have come out in press releases and some not.

Most of the time, the major endorsements like Senators, Reps and Governors usually go out in the press, others less important are written information/letters/etc... going to the candidate' office or staff to print out. At least that is how I understand it.

But I like seeing how people weigh in. It's valuable information that can be enlightening.

19. IMHO it comes down to this

Do we want a candidate/President who is bought and paid for by SUPERpacs and Wall Street,
or do we want Bernie?

31. Don't play word games. And no, doesn't seem you do understand.

 

Ben and Jerry's was a B Corp...a form of a corporate organization...with higher ethics, to be sure. And they were/are capitalists. So they sold and Made a Profit That's both capitalism and corporatism.

34. The fact remains that Sanders' admitted close friends (part of the 1% by the way!) sold....

....out to the British/Dutch conglomerate Unilever and now the profits are going off-shore.

28. I don't think anyone on that list is a super-delegate.

Super-delegates each have a vote towards the nomination.

Candidates without any super-delegates are likely to encounter difficulty at the convention. No shooting the messenger.

35. Hmmm...basically this list proves Bernie would be ineffective??

It's the first time I've seen it, but surely after all his years in Congress Bernie should have some endorsements from people he works with as colleagues?

Wow, that's an eye-opener.

Even though I disagree with some of Bernie's positions, and I knew he had a relatively low rating in government, I now realize other's must think he doesn't "play nice".
