Trumpzilla by Van Jones on FB

Can someone link the video here of this, some of you know what I mean I assume.

He surmises Trump will win WH unless the Democratic party realizes he is no joke as to winning and will win if we arent careful.

I dont have access to FB but someone showed me the video.

Hillary campaign staffer asked me what do Bernie or Bust types need...

This person knows I work on the Sanders campaign, locally.

This person has read and heard over and over about how Bernie or Bust types need to be given a reason to vote for Hillary, which this person assumes means they need something from Hillary as in promises for their own needs.

My friend and I are the types who never vote for our own personal needs but the needs of those with less power than us, or those targeted to HAVE less than us, so we are not used to how to handle this.

i told her I would ask.

What exactly does Hillary have to promise YOU, for YOU, so she can have your vote?

I know Bernie has never promised ME a god damn thing, I have healthcare, dont need a higher education, so my support of Bernie has always been about what his agenda can do for others.

So again, what does Hillary have to promise YOU?

Sandernista rebels are so rebellious and so radical they're going to stay home and pout

Sandernista rebels are so rebellious and so radical they're going to stay home and pout if their preferred candidate isn't on the ballot, and berate everyone else who participates with indignant sneers and elitist scorn.


A friend of mine just said this to me and I had to repeat it here.

Talk about summarizing this whole thing succinctly.


BTW, the person who said this is like me, a Bernie voter. But I guess, like me, a different type of Bernie voter than many we find here at this political message board.


(of course staying home and pouting, and voting 3rd party, are the same thing because we have TWO choices in November, sorry to break the bad news)

Reading here and hearing callers call in liberal radio shows, I am in AWE of the propaganda

successfully used over the past 25 years by the right wing conspiracy to destroy Hillary Clinton.

In fucking AWE.

I mean that sincerely.

I have heard caller after caller say they dont like her, dont trust her, but when pushed as to why they cant really put their finger on it.

Now most of them dont read Democratic Underground or have access to the posts here that are often (not always, but often) prepared by the GOP and placed here listing all the things you should dislike about her or reasons to distrust her, they just dont because they have heard thousands of times that they shouldn't.

Amazing.

Really!


The sad thing is there are plenty of reasons why a liberal should be bothered by Hillary as one should be bothered by most politicians, but most of the reasons given are bullshit and you never hear or read why it would be insane, and it is, to compare her to the right.

So GOP White House not the end of the world, to some here?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/04/racial-disparities-criminal-justice_n_4045144.html

Thom just said one in three African American men in FL are in prison or are unable to vote as once in prison.

I think this is more nationwide, and why is it this way?

Simple fact is it is this way to prevent black people from voting, brought to you by the GOP.


Any person who thinks there is not enough reason to vote for the Democrat in November, is

What if both Sanders & Trump went 3rd party, creating a FOUR WAY race?

I am not recommending this, but it is an interesting concept.

Trump is not going to be allowed to be the GOP nominee or he is gonna leave on his own for some reason, I am pretty sure.

Bernie has all but lost the primary, but he has so many supporters and voters, he could do this.

Think about it, in a 4 way race

Kasich or Cruz
Trump
Hillary
Bernie


who would win?

EDIT reminded of the monstrosity known as the Electoral College, the undemocratic nightmare that keeps us from real democracy

Troubled by Hillary's response to question about adopting some of Bernie's agenda

I saw a video here somewhere, cant find it now.

She was asked about the popularity of Bernie and his ideas and would she work with him on some of that and her answer was very disappointing.

Along the lines of she got more votes so why should she.

Obviously anybody with a brain or heart who alleges they are liberal has to vote for her if Bernie loses, but this response of hers was not only arrogant but she lost the perfect chance to bring us all together.

Too bad.

I am editing this, I should have mentioned Bernie didnt help matters by saying he has conditions on his support...

Bernie Sanders is profoundly changing how millennials think about politics, poll shows

This is huge, once we are beyond the divisive crap going on with the Bernie vs Hillary stuff, we can focus (ALL of us, that is,) on what a tremendous accomplishment it is that Bernie started, and without Hillary could not have achieved maybe.


After Bernie Sanders's defeat in New York last week, his chances of winning the Democratic nomination are dwindling. Yet, even if he loses this campaign, a poll published Monday suggests that Sanders might have already won a contest that will prove crucially important in America's political future.

In the Past Year, 18- to 29-Year-Olds Net Preference Nearly Doubled for Democrats to Maintain Control of White House.


Look at what has happened, millennials are going to be more involved now and in a progressive way.

This is huge, it really is.

The adults in the room have to show up and vote in November, it is our responsibility to do so.

Many of us wont be thrilled about it if Hillary wins, some wont be if Bernie wins, I am in the first camp as I support Bernie.

But you see if I refuse to show up in November for any reason, or If I vote for a 3rd party who cannot and will not win, I am shirking my responsibility as an adult who must participate.

So, we have concluded that the adult votes for one of the two who can win, so who are you voting for?
