Lies vs. Truth
Looking Out for Corporates vs. Looking Out for Everyone
Facade vs. Real
Saying whatever I have to say to get elected vs. Literally Caring for EVERY LAST 320 MILLION OF US including Native Americans, The Disabled, The White, The Wretched, The Black, The Brown, The Gay, The Poor, The Transgendered, The Straight, and Everyone Else
The 1% vs. The 100%
Further Financial Deregulation vs. A 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act
Bernie Sanders is poised to usher in an era where people care for people. Do what you can to support this noble man.
I posted a thread earlier tonight where one of the people attending the Bernie rally in Utah had this to say:
Nelson, who grew up in a conservative family, doesn't support abortion and is actively LDS. But he said he was taught to love each other and take care of each other, and he said Sanderss policies align with those values better than any of the other candidates.
You don't have to triangulate to appeal to people in Red states. There are other ways of finding common ground.
clear cut. It amazes me that Hillary supporters here don't acknowledge the gulf that exists between the two candidates' ideologies and positions on the issues. They seem to think Bernie voters should have no problem voting for her in November if she's the nominee, when, in fact , Bernie voters are ideologically opposed to much of what she stands for.
Asking me to vote for a candidate who lines her pockets with millions in corporate cash, cozies up to corrupt bankers, and supported the horrific neocon inspired Iraq War is asking me to violate my conscience and my principles. Not sure I could bring myself to do it.
If Hillary wins, we lose. If Trump wins, we lose. Without Bernie in the WH keeping the wolves at bay, we are good and truly fucked.
