I Just Gave Bernie FIFTY DOLLARS More and An Additional $15 for FOUR Bumper Stickers...

We do not want Bernie to Come up Short...

Our Nation and all of our good citizens from EVERY walk of life need to have a Democratic Nominee who has demonstrated courage in taking difficult decisions in the past for all of the right reasons.

We need a Democratic Nominee who has unimpeachable personal and professional integrity and has a long history of speaking truth to power as well as to the people that he represents....

We need a Democratic Nominee who has demonstrated objective decision making throughout the duration of his political service which is a product of clear thinking and associated judgement that is free from the drive of his own personal political ambition...

Bernie Sanders has demonstrated that he will be beholden ONLY to the people whom he represents NOT Plutocrats!

It is OUR responsibility to keep pace with Clinton Incorporated as by all accounts, Hillary Clinton has dramatically ramped up her fundraising since the Sanders Campaign announced record-breaking number of small-dollar, individual contributions.

Earlier this week, the Clinton campaign raised almost two million dollars in one day from just three events with millionaires!

Bernie Sanders cannot be bought by Millionaires and Billionaires...

As a former Democratic Nominee for U.S. House in 2006, I was offered the following from a DC Lobbyist for BIG Pharma...

"If you're willing to work with/play ball with the Pharmaceutical Industry, we'll get you all of the contributions that you need..." I responded, "Where would my credibility be if I did the same thing as my Republican Incumbent opponent?"

I am aware that Bernie's response is the same as mine was, as I was told the other day by a businessman with whom I am acquainted had sent Bernie a check from his corporate account and his check was returned by the campaign.

Upon receipt of his returned corporate check my friend then sent a personal check to the campaign which was accepted...

No more corporate shills, or the lesser evil.

A "families celebration" that costs $500 to get in.

I don't know about you, but $500 is far more than most pay a month for a car or nearly half a house payment for MOST families.

Its all 'bout da $MONEY$!

The reason this is relevant is that in 2016 Democratic voters won't be so easily taken in as they were in 2008. They will demand and expect a real Democrat, not a Wall Street-loving, neoconservative Democrat.

But Hillary Clinton is likely to be even more corporatist and militarist than Barack Obama.

During the administration of her husband, she supported NAFTA and the repeal of Glass-Steagall.

As Secretary of State she supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership. She has close ties to Goldman Sachs, Bob Rubin and the financial industry.

There ain't no flip floppin around it. .. She Is A TOTAL Corporatist

"...Sanders, buoyed by the support of independent voters, outperforms Mrs. Clinton in hypothetical general-election matchups in both states among registered voters."


I mean this should be common sense...
