Massive wealth inequality, Too Big to Fail, Henry Kissinger praise.

This is not the Democratic Party that inspired me in my youth with the likes of Bobby Kennedy.

3. I don't think they have.

 

A lot of them are all fired up to vote for Bernie. Or, on the other side, to vote for Trump. They certainly have no time for what they view as the party establishment on either side, but that's understandable given the fruits of that establishment to date.

2. nor was it mine

from reading an article in this morning paper about the debate last night I get it that Hillary came off the rails. Whats the deal with her anyway. Has no desire to debate issues rather she'd focused on personal attacks only. She's berning bridges faster this time than she did the last time. I guess a President Sanders won't be having her in his cabinet anyway and it seems she feels that too.

8. No, this is the Democratic Party of the the Clintons and the Wall Street crowd.

We're supposed to take their "liberal on social issues" and sit down and shut up. If we don't the Republicans will win and we won't even get that. That's the message of the current establishment Democratic Party.

12. Yes, I agree 100% with what you say .I met Kennedy while I was in high school.

He was able to energize people-he would have been President had he not been killed.

13. Right.

It's been a long time since we've had a good progressive candidate in the primaries .....since Jesse Jackson in the 1980s. Although the Democratic establishment circled their wagons during his second run, to prevent him from getting on the ticket, we at least had a spokesperson.

But as disappointing as the issues you make note of in the OP are, I believe we are witnessing a reprise with the Bernie Sanders movement. Now, we are also seeing a circling of those wagons, with establishment endorsements, and the media attempting to portray Bernie's raising his hand to signal to the moderators that he wanted to respond to Hillary's statements as his "Howard Dean scream." And it will get worse, much worse, in the weeks to come.

Recommended.

15. It probably will. We have to remain strong.

That's why it is a struggle to be heard and counted. Thanks.

17. Right? Heck, I remember when I first started coming here it felt "Underground"

Because the mainstream democrats were banging the war drums and it felt like a safe space for me amid the calls for more blood.

It was a different place, where finding a Kissinger booster was a tough sell.

Now what once made me feel so underground is the front runner.

How does that saying go. "As above, so below."
