35. I was for Sanders last year. I was giddy when he entered the race. I wanted to support him.

the 'Ready for Anyone Else' guys seemed to jump right on him and some started the same negativity they'd had on Obama on HRC. In fact, in all the posts in which I was attacked for supporting PBO, were nothing in comparison to my gradually shifting to Clinton got the negativity sent my way.

I don't want to see Bernie's name or the avatar anymore. Because it's left such a foul taste. Then the going after posters like Strong, etc. It got worse, if possible. What is being done to bravenak worse than what ProSense got.

I decided instead of my original plan to vote for BS in the primary and 'whoever' in the general changed. I saw some saying the same thing, who were mocked by those saying they shouldn't be weak minded and pay attention to what people say on DU.

I don't agree because the level of hostility shown here must be in parts of his campaign. It sure showed up at NRN. And I don't want to live under their thumbs, know what I mean?

So I stopped IRL trying to get HRC suppoters to take a look at Bernie. I've decided to not vote in the primary in my state unless it becomes competitve, which it's not. I'll vote in the general.

The Democrats can run Bugs Bunny or Wiley Coyote and I'll vote for him. But what I see here at DU, has to represent some BS supporters IRL as well. I mean, look at NRN. The link Bobbie Jo posted about how a big guy tried to manhandle this little woman - that is scarey.

So I've lost interest. And some may have wanted that to happen. They want their way or the highway. I'm not going to genuflect when a daddy figure walks by. Fine, they can do it themselves.
