About Me

Chose my username because we share the 1st 3 letters of our names and was tired and trying to think of a name and password when I first signed on here. Always been a Dem. since I was old enough to vote in '68.

Bernie's supporters, who will vote for Secretary Clinton out of fear of Trump, have six weeks

to start lying to pollsters. It may be hard to do, to tell a deliberate lie; but it's not the same as lying to a friend or a member of your family. In life, sometimes a lie is necessary. "Does this dress make me look fat?" is a question that begs for a dishonest answer. "Who will you vote for in the general election" is another.

If Bernie Sanders is to defy the odds and come away from the Democratic National Convention as the Party nominee, his supporters need to tell one specific lie to one class of individuals. How Sanders' supporters end up voting in November should have no correspondence to what they convey, for tactical reasons only, to pollsters. Lying to a pollster is not throwing a brick through a window. It may be immoral, but nobody's place in heaven is going to get yanked away from them for telling pollsters a lie. Someone may lose sleep over telling such a lie to a pollster, but the end, in this case, justifies the means.
One small lie for a movement of individuals could lead to one giant leap for mankind.' Ahaha!

3 out of 4 of Sanders' supporters are making a mistake
Polls continue to convey most of Sanders' supporters would vote for Secretary Clinton in a Clinton v Trump general election match-up.

Am I the only one who thinks Obama needs to grow a pair

and has become a disappointment in his last year as POTUS? He's championing the TPP, which is such a disaster that I don't even know where to start. He's done nothing to rein in the FDA and the people he placed in there, when he has nothing to lose now. Big Pharma is out of control, people on Medicare are killing themselves or being killed by their spouses because they can't afford medications which cost 5x as much here than they do in any other country.

Am increasingly disillusioned with Obama. To me, this relates to a lack of soul, character and empathy for humans worldwide that I campaigned for for him on in '08 and '12, and a sad possible path of him being yet another past POTUS abettor in a quest for future gain. Jimmy Carter is still out building houses for Habitat for Humanity…………having just survived cancer………...
