I trust Bernie Sanders.
He has shown an impeccable ability to predict future events with incredible accuracy.
I will do everything in my power to support him in gaining the Democratic nomination.
Having said that, all the numbers point to the fact that if Bernie declared an Independent run, he would win by a landslide.
He has been an Independent his entire life, so becoming the first Indie to sit in The White House seems appropriate.
Also it would put him in the unique position to get rid of bipartisanship and bring both sides of the aisle together and pass more legislation than someone who has to fight the opposition, who largely opposes you based on party differences.
Bernie Sanders merely has to declare it and he WINS!!!
Half of the Democrats, a good percentage of Republicans (who are disenchanted with Trump) and nearly ALL of the Independents would vote for him.
But with May 9 being the Texas filing deadline, it is clear that Sanders has no intention of taking this route.
With Clinton and Trump as our “options”, we NEED Sanders to win.
If he doesn’t we are in deep trouble and likely headed to war in Syria and Iran if either Trump or Clinton take office.
Some will say
“Bernie is a man of integrity and won’t go back on his word. He said he will not run as an Independent so he won’t.”
It’s not as if he carved it in stone.
He said that he was not going to run as an Independent when asked by reporters early in the campaign.
And when he said that he wouldn’t, he had no way of knowing that he was facing a party that would use massive voter suppression and media disinformation against him.
He had no way of knowing that Hillary Clinton would literally BUY the (not so) Super-delegates.
Just today, it has been noted that Clinton and Wasserman Schultz have been trying to stack the convention in their favor.
Why should he have any loyalty to this broken and corrupt party which has done nothing for him and has done very little for the American people?
I want to see Bernie CRUSH BOTH PARTIES and usher in a new party and a new era of hope and enlightenment for America.
But as he insists on flying directly into the belly of the beast, I will be fighting by his side and I know millions of others will as well.
It is not as if I doubt the Bernie can win the contested convention if it is conducted fairly.
I know Sanders’ supporters outnumber Clinton supporters nearly 2 to 1 (it’s a shame the DNC will not allow them to vote.).
Furthermore Sanders’ supporters have 100 times the enthusiasm of Clinton’s low-information voter base.
I just wonder how Sanders expects to suddenly be treated fairly by an organization that has treated him horribly since the day he announced his candidacy?
Despite the fact that I have given thousands of dollars and thousands of hours to this campaign, I do not think it is my place to second guess this great man.
I will go on faith.
Bernie has said from day 1 that he is in this to win and has said recently that he fully expects to win.
Sanders has never been a man given to flights of fancy.
He is quite simply a man of integrity.
So if Bernie says that he will do something, then we can rest assured that he will do it.
And right now he is telling us that he is going to defeat Rodham and win the Democratic nomination.
Should the DNC be foolish enough to nominate Clinton than Donald Trump will be our President (I NEVER thought I would say such ridiculous words).
When the Hillary fans use their “If you don’t vote for Hillary than we will get Trump argument.” (apparently the only argument they know), I always think “Oh my God!! Do you not realize that if Clinton is the candidate then we will definitely get Trump? Don’t you follow polling? Don’t you understand politics at all?!”
Rather we have Clinton or Trump, either way we are the laughing stock of the world.
I won’t vote for Clinton’s genocide and secrecy, nor will I vote for Trump’s bigotry.
You can rig our election, but you cannot force us to support your corruption.
I will close with this…
The FBI (lead by Obama appointed, right wing Republican James Comey) does not put 12 men on a case for an entire year, extradite witnesses and promise them immunity if they do not have a case.
They have something on Clinton.
They were able to retrieve ALL of her deleted emails and it is clear that she compromised our national security, but I believe this part is the least of her worries.
If she deleted those emails she had something to hide.
And all indicators are that it was something big.
The FBI holds all the cards here.
They are just waiting for the right time to strike.
I find it delightfully ironic that a man appointed by Obama has the opportunity to crush Hillary Clinton.
Comey is from Yonkers, just down the Hudson River from where Sanders grew up.
It would be apropos that two real New Yorkers would end up being the downfall of the biggest fake New Yorker of all time.
Millions will be watching with great interest.
The fate of the entire free world hangs in the balance.
