Thu Oct 15, 2015, 11:42 PM

This campaign isn't about the Democrats vs the Republicans.

It is about the Wall Street bankers and other oligarchs against the people on both sides who are sick and tired of the establishment picking their pockets.

Wall Street doesn't want another New Deal. They've spent the last 70 years pounding nails into the old one.

This is why, I think, when focus groups said Bernie won the debate, that was silenced.

This is why, when Bernie supporters began to post on CNN's Facebook after CNN declared Clinton the winner, CNN deleted the posts.

This is why, Chris Matthews, the original American exceptionalist, had nothing good to say about Bernie, and in fact referred to him as 'this guy calling for a revolution...'

This is why Wasserman Schultz is hanging on tight while under increasing attack from other high ranking members of the DNC.

Well, they've got the money. We've each got one vote. We'll see how it goes.

So there you have it. My opinion in all its glory.

3. Hell yea! Nailed it!

 

That's exactly why they're trying to silence us. That's exactly why DWS is trying to fix the nomination. They are afraid of us, for good reason....We're a threat to their gravy train.

7. I don't know why people can't see that Hillary is not her own person anymore. She's gone corporate.


Everything she says has been poll-tested, pre-approved by her handlers. She's a front-woman for the banking industry. It's so obvious.

8. Sorry but even if Bernie Sanders were to somehow get himself elected,

or hell freezes over or something, he wouldn't become some kind of dictator who will institute sweeping changes to the U.S. banking system or anything else. Republicans will still control both houses because of states gerrymandering and there's not much that can be done to change that. I wish Bernie Sanders suppoerters would work as hard getting their local democrats elected as they do liking facebook posts voting on internet polls.

10. it wont be just bernie

if he beats the trickery, scheming, character smearing, and lies to win, which I think he will, he will bring a wave of congressional and local victors who are going to change the way politics is happening in this country. you must not be listening to him at rallies. he constantly says this is not about him and that he can't do it alone. that is why its a revolution.

the oligarchs will be rendered powerless at every level. only then do we have a chance of getting our country back. it might not all happen in this one election. but this election will push the snowball down the hill, and there will be no stopping it.
