Wed Jul 1, 2015, 08:50 PM

Thanks to another member, I am now firmly in the Bernie Sanders camp.

Her unwavering support of HRC has caused me to realize that this is where I belong.

I have subscribed to this group, and I expect to post here now and then.

Go Bernie!

Too bad we don't have a meta forum anymore. But, yeah, there's been plenty of nastiness around here lately and it seems to be more potent than in primaries past. I'm a pretty low key poster, and I'm not very prolific now days, but I think all it takes is a look at my avatar to draw contention no matter what I'm posting about. I have no doubt that some Hillary supporters feel the same way.

I've been a Bernie fan since the late 90's, and he is the real deal. I never expected him to run for POTUS, just loved him in the House & Senate. I'm thrilled to see him in the race - I believe he can win it all, but even if he didn't win the nomination he will ensure that the issues we care about will be discussed, at least on the Democratic side.

It was a back and forth between CP and a rather rude supporter of another candidate in which some intemperate remarks were made by this other poster. You'd recognize the name.

I'm not trying to be coy but I'd prefer to let CP herself decide how much of this exchange she wants to discuss. Maybe you could PM her and ask.

Hillary is going to LOSE, bigtime. That is already becoming clear.
The tsunami is approaching, and Hillary ain't any part of it.

But the Hillary-folks can't see it yet, and
they are going to take it hard.

Maybe they will take it so hard, they'll just have to vote GOP, eh?

105. And she's frozen into that stance, too

 

That's why her candidacy's toast, eventually.




Hillary would do much better if she were attacked with merely slime, like Monica Lewinsky references,
Benghazi, etc etc

But Bernie's policy-stands, in their clarity and frankness, are far more damaging to Hillary, because they
unmistakeably reveal Hillary's lack of substance, and need to "Me-Too" everything that
sounds good, instead of having an actual belief-system to govern by (which I feel she has permanently
abandoned for expediency, and friendship with elite$).

A Hillary supporter was just hell bent on changing my mind no matter what.

at the time, I was leaning toward Bernie, but the supporter got so crazy, that I had to block them.

Their reaction was so over the top, it just pushed me further to support Bernie.

This isn't just about Sen Sanders running for president, it's much bigger. It's catching on around the world. The 99% are tired fo carrying the load for the 1% and are starting to stand up to the tyrants. HRC isn't a tyrant, but IMO she isn't the one to fight the tyrants.

Honestly, if I was not already a Sanders supporter, the behavior of some of the HRC candidates would have pushed me to look at him more seriously as well.

And once you do so, it is easy to realize he is the genuine progressive and part Democratic candidate.

So glad to see more support Sanders!

68. Welcome Peggy

I think many of us have been tired of the attacks by the Clinton supporters. Up until the other day I had been wavering on whether I was going to wait another month to decide who I was going to support, but have leaned toward Sanders. So I'm new as well and made my first donation right before the deadline.

69. California Peggy, you grace any group that you join.

You are one of the loveliest posters on this board.

While I am grateful for any additional supporters of Senator Senators, though, please do not choose a candidate based on the behavior of his or her supporters. The two things are not related.

When the time comes to propose, sign or veto a bill, or ask Congress for a war vote (heaven forbid), or negotiate a treaty about the environment, it won't be some pleasant or nasty DUer doing that. It will be the politician. Please make the choice on that basis.

70. Peggy, your heart definitely belongs here -

you have so much kindness to share and Bernie is a candidate who is worth backing. Like you I am not hurting terribly at present, but I grew up poor and I see the middle class (that allowed me to prosper) being destroyed around me. It is time for us to give back and we can do that by supporting Bernie. ((Peggy))

71. Funny

I'm having the exact opposite experience - I've been on board with Bernie since the day he announced. Been a fan for years, and being a New Englander I've had a lot more exposure to him than many who live in other parts of the country.

Here's the thing - I do not hate Clinton. And I'm getting disgusted with the attacks on her. One of the reasons I like Bernie so much is that he concerns himself with himself and doesn't attack anyone.

I am a socialist - and not a Democratic Socialist but an Old School Socialist. I am voting Bernie in the primaries but I do not believe enough other people will, just yet. I'm hoping that they do, but if they don't and Clinton is the nominee, all of this hatred of her being spewed on an hourly basis is going to do nothing to make sure a republican doesn't win.

The best way to get Bernie nominated is to spread his message, not make attacks on Clinton that sound like they come from the deranged right wing.

And I would never let the behavior of anyone's supporters change my vote. Never.

I'm thinking big picture though and these vitriolic attacks on Clinton help no one but republicans.

I've been limiting my DU to LBN and a couple of groups I enjoy reading.

78. Welcome!

I've been lurking a lot lately because I enjoy my sanity too much to get all swept up in DU drama.

So, I didn't see the exchange you had, although I can guess what it was like.

I hope you find a safe haven here and a place of inspiration!

So nice to see you, sweet lady.

And I will also vote for the nominee. But I want that person to be Bernie!

I like Hillary, i Really do, and we are way Past due for a woman. But she Really is more of the Same. I never cared for her Support of Monsanto and the GMO's.

80. Dear CaliforniaPeggy:

 

I am a big fan of your thoughtful posts and, having just become a member of this site this morning, wanted to make my very first post a reply to your OP.

You and others like you bring so much to this community and I don't know that you realize how important it is to have folks like you, H2O Man, Omaha Steve, and so many others here.

(((((Peggy)))))

82. YAY!!! You go girl!!!!

I will not speak disrespectfully of Ms. Clinton. She well may be “our” candidate and I don’t feel like doing the opposition research for the GOP by listing the myriad reasons why I will not support her in the primary. Bernie won’t speak against her, and I think that we should follow his lead. That is my personal opinion.

But DAMN that Bernie - - I’ve loved him for years, never thought he would run and now that he is I couldn’t be happier or more enthusiastic about a candidate. He REALLY does stand out from the crowd, and I am sure, if people REALLY listened, they’d agree with him over any other candidate.

It does not matter one jot that we think one of them will have a “better chance” of winning over whomever the GOP candidate may be. I think its high time we ALL realize that WE HAVE TO CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF OUR PARTY and NOW IS THE TIME. If we don’t do it now, I fear our opportunity will vanish before our eyes. We must take this risk or put future generations squarely behind the 8 ball.

I have such respect and admiration for you, whether or not you came over to the “dark” side but I am pleased as punch that you have reached your conclusion.

85. Glad that you have joined the Bernie camp.

I am sorry that you came to it this way, because that means that one Democrat was being nasty to another Democrat. This just doesn't do any of us good. It is his message that has resonated with me. Glad that you took a look at the message as well.

97. to those asking people to post

about other people, there is a clever little trick some do if you mention someone by name. It is considered a TOS, and can get you hidden or begin sent a pizza. Granted, it is selectively enforced, but it is a trick I suspect will be played on a lot of people that do not get in line.
