I'm taking a break from my break to give some of the reasons I'm having difficulty with everything.








Things shouldn't be this hard for people of conscience.

1. It is not that hard. It's just that a segment of the party has the conscience of republicans

 

And that segment also has the money and the media.

3. nothing specific about what he's seeking to include in the platform on behalf of Hillary?

...just the smear of this decades-long, liberal Democrat?

FFS, this is the Sanders campaign in spades.

13. he works for a bank, therefore his work on the platform committee is corrupted

...before we even know what the proposals are and what influence he has on what.

This fits in with the rest of the innuendo used against Hillary. A smear. Don't expect me to give you a debate on it's merits. I'm not interested in fighting Sanders campaign nonsense any more. It's over, but I can see the desire here to continue the campaign into the convention.

Here's a clue. Convention platforms are pablum. You're tilting at windmills.

21. he wasn't really crazy, just the townspeople's opinion of him

...cruel folks.

He was a rather tragic figure (almost heroic, in the most sympathetic view), although, he seemed to redeem himself as he progressed with his displays of valiance which seemed to strengthen him; albeit in vain. (I'm remembering this, so I'm not positive I'm relating it accurately.)

All 'tilting at windmills' really represents in the context I used it is attacking imaginary enemies.

17. you don't really know who my 'heroes' are

...and you can't make an informed judgement on that by my refusal to support Bernie Sanders as our nominee.

So many folks opposing Hillary here have created their own narrative and spend their political capital arguing against all of that.

Are we also 'victims' of Sanders' vote to deregulate derivatives?

He's always been a jerk, but at least he used to be a jerk to Republicans.

He's just a jerk.

23. People of conscience

which I think the Democratic party is sorely lacking. After Nevada, all of the voter supporession/election fraud, the way that they continually either change the rules to fit their narrative or suppress the rights of others (see Nevada), I don't think the Democratic party can be called the party with a conscience anymore.
