20. I support Bernie at this point, because


I trust him.

Bernie has earned trust, over decades. IMO she is uncomfortably silent on the MIC and the police state. I love what she has to say about the banks, but we don't just need to be financially more comfortable in a police state; we need the restoration of our democracy and Constitution. Perhaps she is the real deal, but it would be a leap of faith, and we tried that in 2008. We are dealing with a machine that knows exactly what we want to hear.

That Obama's team turns easily to Elizabeth I find troubling (http://www.democraticunderground.com/10025950829), as I do her recent vote for MIC funding (on which Sanders voted "Nay".

Not to mention that Bernie is better than almost any politician I've ever seen at resisting efforts by the MSM to divert and distract and distort and reframe the narrative.

If Bernie were to signal trust in Elizabeth by choosing her as a runningmate, I would ecstatically vote for a Sanders/Warren ticket.

For now, my strong support is behind Bernie.

Thanks for asking. K&R
