41. Cannot explain why they are so in the dark, but that is not going to change my sense of what is

 

right or my knowledge of history in the slightest.

I feel sure you will not appreciate that comment, but her winning can be explained by many other factors other than doing what is right for the Democratic Party or for the average person or for the country.

I am long since past the point where I am surprised that people can believe or be led to believe all sorts of very bad things. In fact, the good things have to be spoken for and stood for just as much as the lies (proven fact) to be effective. The only thing is, they are somewhat easier and more palatable to stand for. That is why we love standing for Bernie and he enjoys standing for us. We actually feel we are in it for something that is right and good.

You may feel that same way about Hillary, but I do hear all sorts of other arguments like
he can't accomplish what he's saying
she's the safer choice
who is he anyway?
he's a racist or sexist - this is Rovian bullshit
she has the numbers

Look at the start of the race, when she really had the numbers.

I'm interested in people, and in how they feel, and what is actually right for the majority of them. And that's why I support Bernie, and will do so till there is no purpose to it. Unfortunately, that could be a very long time.
