2. This is not about Sanders. It's about what he stands for. Youth know this. I know this.

 

Because I am to the left of Sanders, and definitely to the left of Biden.

It's about US.

THERE IS NO REASON TO WAIT, AT THIS POINT, JUST BECAUSE WE ARE USED TO NOT KNOWING IT'S ABOUT US.

I will vote for any Democratic candidate in the end -- as if I should even have to repeat that here.

YET. THE major reason to vote, for all Americans, is both to rid us of parasites, TO USE RULE OF LAW to clean out corruption. From Delaware to Nevada to Moscow.

Elizabeth Warren has said it best, and knows HOW.

Bernie has said it longest, and knows WHAT. (Well, maybe Warren, but I have to reckon with anti-woman numbers)

I will keep beating the drum for youth who know this, too.

4. Someone in another thread used the phrase "America as we know it."

 

America as we know it is a disaster; it's a blight on the world. Trump or no Trump, we desperately need major fundamental change across the board. Our species, much less our society, is in grave danger.

Things like the Green New Deal and a complete restructuring of the economy (such as transitioning to social/cooperative ownership of businesses that are currently having an adverse impact on all of us) aren't merely options; they're necessities.

We don't have time for incremental change.

7. I'm reminded of a quote:

 

"It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society." ~Jiddu Krishnamurti

If anyone thinks we'll be saved by pre-Trump status quo, they're in for a huge disappointment.

8. Yes. Krishnamurti's a Bernie bro. In the spiritual sense, obviously.
