76. Wow, I read the links Bernie wrote in a downthread post

I can't respond, I've had that poster on ignore for a long time, but I was expecting some crazy way off base writings given the context and intention those links were provided in.

Instead, I am grateful to that poster, I had not read them before, and I found absolute verification that Bernie is the real thing. At last, there is someone to support that isn't a programmed product of a sick society, but has always been (these writing, I think, undated, were probably from 40 years ago or more) on the frontier of rethinking the mechanized militarized soul-less environment destroying empty materialistic society we are thrown into as our only valid choice.

I only read the first two links, not the third, too long and I only have so much time for this, but they were beautiful. It is sad to see a DU'er cherry pick such honest and thoughtful work for some controversial gotcha. Every word of it rang true, the spirit of truth and working to create something better was alive in his words. Obviously many of those thoughts would not be approved by any candidate's focus group as what a candidate ought to say. So much the better, let's be real.

The most offensive thing I found was Bernie referencing Ron Morrison of The Doors, when it was Jim Morrison.

Nice to see him even way back then railing against the gun lobby, I knew the gun framing against Bernie was disingenuous. So many other principled positions, too, an endless stream of them, truly a representative of the culture I've always wished could establish itself here rather than the corporate phoniness that has shaded every light to dim darkness.

So happy to support such a man as Bernie, I was dreading the soulless wasteland the party was offering us with more third way dreck, wanted Warren to step up, and Bernie has been amazing, much closer to my overall beliefs and worldview than Warren.
