4. If I may...

President Jimmy Carter has informed us that we are not currently a democracy; we are an oligarchy.

In this Revolution for Democracy, it is important to remember that we set the battlefield, not the enemies of democracy. The battle you imply is lost relies on a set of definitions, a framing of that battle provided to you by the enemies of democracy. I will offer an alternative frame...

We are winning. By that I do not mean that we are winning a rigged DWS-DNC nomination that has been forced, because we are winning, into exercising massive voter suppression and election fraud in order to provide the illusion that Hillary is winning and has already won. The election fraud borne out by the exit polls is so apparent the M$M canceled their contract for the remaining contests (including California and New Jersey). Rather, I mean that Bernie Sanders is winning the citizenry of this country: his favorability is rising in the wake of his campaign, going up in states he previously lost, and snowballing in front of him. The M$M is against him; the DNC is against him; the Establishment of politicians, lobbyists, welfare corporations, billionaires and Wall Street are opposing Bernie...

and yet, Bernie is winning.

Here are the GALLUP FAVORABILITY POLL results - a national poll taken during April 1-30, 2016:

WHITES: Sanders: 52% Clinton: 28% Trump: 29%
BLACKS: Sanders: 67% Clinton: 60% Trump: 14%
HISPANICS: Sanders: 52% Clinton: 50% Trump: 14%

MILLENNIALS: Sanders: 55% Clinton: 38% Trump: 22%
MEN: Sanders: 53% Clinton: 32% Trump: 28%
WOMEN: Sanders: 57% Clinton: 45% Trump: 16%

CONSERVATIVES: Sanders: 29% Clinton: 26% Trump: 36%
MODERATES: Sanders: 57% Clinton: 37% Trump: 22%
LIBERALS: Sanders: 78% Clinton: 51% Trump: 9%

No college: Sanders: 47% Clinton: 38% Trump: 26%
Some college: Sanders: 57% Clinton: 32% Trump: 23%
Graduated college: Sanders: 62% Clinton: 39% Trump: 21%
Postgraduate work: Sanders: 65% Clinton: 53% Trump: 11%

Perhaps these poll results are not what you expected because of what M$M tell you or even what the election results tell... something you might contemplate.
Do you see the wakes? Hillary is losing key demographic groups nationally; Bernie is gaining those demographics... and its not over. However, do you appreciate why Hillary is doing everything to force Bernie out of the race? I do.

It is becoming clear already that Hillary cannot win in November and Bernie Sanders will. In the pretend GE campaign Trump and Hillary have been conducting over the last 10 days, Hillary has gone from +2 to -3pts, a shift of 5 points in 10 days! That's losing 1/2 point per day nationally. This ongoing slide combined with the Gallop poll details above are exactly why Bernie will win in November. Trust me when I tell you the Democratic leadership is well aware of these realities. If they fail to select Bernie Sanders at the convention they will surely lose with Hillary and they know it. Count delegates all you want but when the rubber meets the road and a Trump presidency looms large, what do you think the Democratic Party and delegates, super or family-size, will do?

Well, I tell you, I don't much care because I will be right outside with a bunch of Bernie supporters to persuade Bernie to continue to November because he will win.
So, I ask you, is it time to lose the battle or is it time to redefine the battlefield?

From July 23 and culminating on July 25th, the Peaceful Revolution for Democracy will assemble in Philadelphia to:
Monitor fairness of the DWS-DNC convention
Seek redress to our grievances regarding voter suppression and election fraud
Show our support of Bernie and his platform
Support Bernie's continued run for the Presidency to November regardless of the outcome of the DWS-DNC convention

Thanks for your time.
