You want unity?

Stop the name calling. Stop the condescension. Stop the provocations.


A Bernie Supporter

Another video of the Nevada Convention. These can't be posted enough.

Does the DNC *want* to lose in November? Do they *want* a 3rd party to emerge? Unbelievable...


Update from Maine State Convention - Super Delegates' power significantly reduced

Hi all. Been a while since I've last posted, but figured it was worth it to stop in and let you know what happened at the Maine State Convention today. One of the amendments that we voted on and approved will force Super Delegates to support Presidential Candidates in proportion to the vote of the people. In other words, Bernie (or anyone) winning states with 60-70% of the vote and receiving no Super Delegate support won't happen anymore, at least in Maine. This will take effect starting in 2020. There was a big push to force the rule change to take effect immediately, but apparently there were procedural rules in place preventing that from happening. All in all it was a good day for Bernie at the convention. Here's a video of the aforementioned motion passing with a voice vote.

There have been some bizarre criticisms here, but going after the Vatican meeting is callous...

At best. It shows a complete unwillingness to see the other candidate in a positive light, which goes beyond just supporting your candidate. No rational human being could twist Bernie's meeting with the Vatican into something negative.

Press Conference where Bernie addresses the "Qualified" issue

Now, this was supposed to be a press conference on the needs of working families and the middle class, but the press being what it is of course strayed from that topic immediately and asked about what happened yesterday. Bernie addresses the issue at about 9:30

What happened tonight in Nevada underscores a theme in this primary

The Bernie Sanders campaign has the more enthusiastic supporters. Period.

Time to ignore Clinton supporters on this board and focus efforts on winning NY.

Instead of responding to their outrageous posts, volunteer. Every time they make some outlandish claim about Bernie, make a phone call to NY. Every time they post something w/ snark or malice, make a phone call to NY. If you live in or near NY, canvass. GET OUT THE VOTE. If there is a large voter turnout in NY, Bernie will win. And if Bernie wins NY, this election is damn near over.

Here's a popular phone banking website run by volunteers. https://www.berniepb.com/

Contact your local Bernie office for times and routes to canvass.

Let's do this.

The Hillary Camp has crossed the line w/ this new "Bernie snapping at his wife" video...

This is truly disgusting behavior by the Clinton campaign, David Brock, and anyone who uses this video to paint Sanders in a negative light. This is the definition of a negative personal attack. It has nothing to do with the issues, and it is only meant to antagonize people and smear Bernie's name. Truly, truly disgusting.

It's a good night to be a Bernie supporter

Win 3 states and watch the momentum build. But honestly, the one of the most satisfying parts of tonight is watching some of the Hillary supporters on this board freak out. Some post how Bernie's wins tonight are meaningless, some post ridiculous accusations about him, while others try to divert the conversation. Yep, tonight was a good night.

Questioning Hillary's Strength Against Trump is *NOT* "Trump Humping". It's a Fact.

Hillary and Trump are pretty darn even in most of the polls these days, and it's been that way for months. Hillary is going to have a very difficult time in the GE *if* she becomes the nominee. You know who consistently does much better in the polls? He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named. You know, the other candidate running for the Democratic nomination that the media, political establishment, and the owners of this board seem fit to ignore.

Btw, "Trump Humping" is such a stupid term.
