The Long Haul -

I have met so many wonderful folks who envision a better future - both here in the Bernie group, on JackPine Radicals, on Twitter, and Bernie Meetups IRL.

We will have to motivate each other and stay focused and positive as we go into Super Tuesday. We will do well, I believe, in Colorado, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Vermont. These are proportional delegates so he will pick up what he can while Hillary takes the bigger southern states like Texas (remembering that she is winning these southern states that are very conservative - they will not vote for her in the general).

After that it gets brighter as we move on to the Western and Northern states - Bernie's firewall. These states will take us to the convention. Bernie's got to hang in there and so do we - you never know what will happen along the way. Even if it seems that Hillary is ahead we still have the email situation lurking in the background, with a democratic administration still reviewing what she did as Secretary of State. If she is forced to pull out Bernie needs to be ready - whether he is ahead in delegate count or not.

I would also like to say this morning is that I am so proud of all of us. I am sticking with Bernie and the movement for change. Ultimately it goes beyond whether he wins or not. This movement has attracted so much energy and youth that I feel like it is not just an outlier but a fight for the democratic party itself. That is the reason I am still posting on this site. I want folks to know that those of us on the fringe are still here and will not give up. We are not giving in to the Hillary Clintons and Donald Trumps of the world. Capitalism is a horrible, inherently unequal system. I may be getting older now but I am still working for that better world for my kids. It doesn't have to be like this and frankly this oppressive system is not sustainable.

How we help Bernie:

1. Phone bank
2. Canvass
3. Donate

Go to Bernie Sanders.com, Click on "events", and put in your zip code to see what you can do to help!

In Solidarity, TBF

1. I doubt Obama will let those emails get in the way. He wants her

to be the next President.

What has really angered me is the corporate media and the shills FROM DAY 1 only talking on the dem side about Hillary. No coverage for Bernie until they were forced to after NH. They still talk about when Hillary is nominee as if Bernie does not exist. That comes all the way from the top Dem Obama who wants Hillary to be nominated and those below him. This has been a deliberate agenda to stop us from getting what we should have as Americans. Freedom back and wages that allow us to survive, good jobs, caps lifted on SS, and so many other things including the majority wanting Medicare for All HR676.

This is an effort for the elite (some say the Illuminati) to control and keep us as slaves. Hillary supporters here either are part of the elite or just don't realize what has happened to our democracy. Perhaps they are younger. I have seen it spiral down hill. In Bernie's words this Country is "rigged"

3. It's rigged for sure -

But I'm not sure Obama gives a damn what happens. Who could blame him. He has been treated like crap in DC and I'm sure he is looking forward to his Library in Chicago and a nice home in Hawaii.
