Elizabeth, Bernie then Martin.

These are the three people I would vote for and feel like I was placing an historic vote.

It's been many years since I have seen such true Democrats. If we don't take this opportunity, we may not see this opportunity again. It may be too late.

I'll vote for Hillary if she wins the primary. However, it's a vote for a 3rd way Democrat.

Elizabeth is not running but for me, she was the first to spark the populist opportunity to turn America around. I love Elizabeth and her fire.

Bernie has my vote. This man built his campaign from grassroots donations. He is his own person. He speaks for the people that paid him (so does Hillary and every other politician but "people" is loosely defined).

Martin is very intriguing and I think he has points over each of the other two. I'm less familiar but still educating myself. Who knows, he might win me over.

We have two great Democrats that encompass the best of Democratic values.

I know this will not be a popular statement but, please don't vote for Hillary in the primary. Take the opportunity to bring real change to America. Vote for Bernie or Martin because we need to change before global warming forces change. We need to change before WWIII. We need change before corporations leave us all in the dust.

This is an unprecedented opportunity. Vote in your, and your children's, best interest.

An America of the people, by the people, for the people.

1. Wow, Bernie speaks for the people that paid him?

That's unfortunate. I didn't take him to be the corrupt sort, but if you say so...

I'll stick with Hillary, who fights for all of the people, not just the ones who give her money.

2. Yup. The "people" that paid her are who?

BTW - what percent of Hillary donations are below $100? What's her average donation?

5. I already know.

Hillary is owned by the Oligarchy. Bernie is owned by the people.

"Owned" is a harsh word but when you take people's contributions...

7. We meet in a smoky room every couple months and conspire to enslave the human race.

Resistance is futile!

4. i know you know better but i am going to just say this anyway...

 

I send Bernie $25.00 a month, others send a little more, still others send a little less...that is hardly the stuff that creates 'corruption'..but like I said...you know that...Hillary has an unbelievable war chest filled with the treasures of Wall Street..so we know who she is in this for

8. If most Bernie donors are anything like his fans online, the idea that he represents them

is truly frightening. Like I said, I'll stick with Hillary. She isn't owned by anyone, and fights for everyone.

21. I agree, but third way is why we keep losing. People are just done voting for that.

They feel as though their opinions and needs are no longer cared for with government, they are likely right. If Bernie isn't elected, we are just done. Period. We might be already.

22. Totally agree.

Drive around if you get depressed.

You'll see Bernie bumper stickers, signs and t-shirts - as many as 5 to 1 to all others.

You're right. this needs to happen.
