I believe Bernie is building a new party, one with honesty, integrity and

working for all the American people, not just a few of the wealthiest. And
he is building this new party without any change in its name: It is still
The Democratic Party.

It seems rather odd, come to think of it. He had been an Independent all his
political life, and did not join the Democratic Party until he announced his
decision to run for the presidency this year!!

This change is coming from within - it's the Soul of the Democratic Party that
will be leaving behind all the corruption of the past, and embracing, instead,
Honesty, Integrity and Dedication to the betterment of our entire nation.

We are going to help Bernie succeed!

Another favorite Republican dirty trick: Accuse your opponent of doing something dishonest that

you yourself are doing.

Yes, DWS seems to be getting desperate at Bernie's success, in spite of all of

her trickery!

How about Debbie W. Schultz's scheduling Democratic Primary debates on weekends, so

that Sanders will get as little public exposure as possible? Fox News and the Main Stream
Media are already doing the same thing. DWS is showing her efforts in doing everything
possible to help Hillary beat Sanders. The actions of the Chairperson of the DNC are
supposed to be impartial and fair towards all Democratic candidates for the presidency.
Is she being impartial and neutral?

Do Debbie W. Schultz's actions above also merit an investigation? And can we demand one?

This could be just the point: Trump will be winning not for "them," but for himself. I think

it's unlikely that he will win, though.

And the fact that Elizabeth Warren, who has a good following and a good chance of winning,

but declined to run for president, in spite of the large numbers of people urging her, could
also mean something.

I think soon after the elections are over, you pro-Hillary guys won't be seen on DU again

for a long time -- maybe until the next election? In the meantime, you are trying to create
as much trouble as you can. And you're not succeeding too well.

Here's the prediction from Western Illinois Univ. Presidential Prediction polls for 2016. They

began their predictions in 1975 (that's 40 years!!), and have been correct every single time so
far. They predicted 49% for Sanders, and 38% for Bush. They even predicted O'Malley as
Sanders' V-P. Until now, their accuracy rate has been 100%.

Jimmy Carter: 'Unlimited Political Bribery' subverts nation.

Corporate America is simply rotten and corrupt through and through. Here we have it from the former President Jimmy Carter himself:

The United States is no longer a democracy because of "unlimited political bribery" that's created "a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors," former President Jimmy Carter says.

In an interview on the "Thom Hartmann Program," Carter said Supreme Court cases like the 2010 Citizens United decision have turned America into an "oligarchy," where wealthy elites wield the most power.

"It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system," he said. "Now it's just an oligarchy, with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president. And the same thing applies to governors and U.S. senators and Congress members."

"The incumbents, Democrats and Republicans, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves," Carter added.
"Somebody's who's already in Congress has a lot more to sell to an avid contributor than somebody who's just a challenger."
In 2012, Carter called the Citizen United decision "the stupidest decision that the Supreme Court ever made," The Hill reported.

Is this How Hillary pays back a good turn?:

Bernie initially said that he would not say anything negative about fellow Democrats during the
campaign, and he kept his word. During the first Democratic Primary Presidential debate, he
even helped Hillary, when the subject of her e-mails was brought up, in stead of taking
advantage of the situation. Very gentlemanly of him, indeed!

Then later Hillary started attacking him personally. Well, is that her way of repaying him for
having been a gentleman? It struck me that she was the type who believes in "Win at any Price,
no holds barred" -- not a very pleasant character trait to have, in my opinion! It would have been
foolish of Bernie to continue taking it lying down under these circumstances, wouldn't it? Being
the fighter that he is, he is striking back.

Now Hillary supporters are complaining about Bernie supporters "hating Hillary" when they criticize
her. Who started the negativity first?

Do Hillary supporters see what I have written above also as "hate?" I consider it as a criticism of
Hillary, based on fact. Nobody's perfect. I don't particularly like Hillary, but I don't hate her either.
As I have stated in past posts, I will vote for her in the GE, should she beat Bernie in the Primaries.
