A fond adieu to Bernie supporters on DU

I'm quite sure to get myself into trouble, if not today, certainly tomorrow, or if I find my bigger self, I will be hiding till November. I found DU on google some years ago, lurking forever, not wanting to intrude as a foreigner. Someone had written a surprisingly non-msm progressive article that caught my eye.

It was so refreshing in contrast to the picture we Canadians are fed of RW, warmongering, Empire building, gun-tottin' Americans. Of course, I knew you were out there! I'd been following Democracy Now, The Real News, Thom Hartman, etc. that mirrored my world view of us all born as lovers, where false gods with false promises inevitably lead to mistrust and inequality.

Here at DU, I found that love that extends past borders and biospheres.

I've been waiting and advocating for a time like now since my youth - everything points to this revolution that Sanders has so selflessly championed. It's happening all over the world, and the challenges to change are becoming not only more insipiently dangerous, but simultaneously more transparent with citizen journalism. They can't keep it up. Keep strong!

I've come to recognize names here and happily read your posts. It gives me strength and hope.

Maybe its just this primary business, and November will bring back some democratic discussion here - but for now, or until the axe falls, a fond adieu. See you in JPR.

I am going to stick around and keep my head low and be careful what I say. I will probably make posts to the DU Lounge on occasion. Then I'll see what this place is like after the election and then I'll act accordingly.
