A special request to some of my fellow Bernie supporters

Some people (from both sides) are saying, "I will vote for____ when ____."

But they mean this: "I would vote for ____ if ____."

Or, "When _____ happens, we will _____." When they mean....

"If _____ happens, we should."

Also, "If ______ wins the nomination, I will ____"



We need to be more conscious about what we say, words matter. I've done it myself and have to slow down a bit.

Maybe I'm but it bugs me.

Maybe it's but humor me anyway

1. It bugs me too.

It sounds like you've accepted defeat if you say "when", and that's exactly what they want. We have 46 states left.
