20. How committed are you to democracy?

 

Bernie did a thousand times more than anyone on DU or in the party for democracy and the establishment and many DUers treated him like shit.

Good Job establishment. You showed him, eh?

I look at it and I say: fuck it. What's the use?

If Bernie said Fuck it, what would you do?

10. I don't really believe Bernie ever thought he would get this far. He wanted to start the dialog

again that we had in the 60's-70's and get away from Reagan's "Greed is good" attitude to more like JFK's "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country". He has laid out certain things we need to do as a society like Universal healthcare, infrastructure repairs, and others that you know of.

He has started the dialog, the secret is keeping it going. Getting enough your people to go that track in life instead of becoming MBA's.

As long as Bernie can get enough people to follow his lead and start down that path, he has won.

Bernie talked about starting a revolution, that is what he is talking about.

29. Whatever he asks of us to do to keep it going, we would do that, wouldn't we?

No matter who wins in November we will still have a very fucked up ratio of wealth regards the rich to everybody else.

Still have many uninsured or under-insured as to their health, even with the tremendous accomplishment of ACA.

We will still have a lack of in place regulations to deal with climate change.

The list is endless. Nothing changes on election day, and nothing changes for a long time even if we win.

12. I don't think he ever expected to get this far....

Seemed his race at the onset was an ideological one to inflict socialist ideas into the Democratic Party and tilt it a little more left. He was probably surprised to find that there was a significant segment of the population that were on board.

And he's accomplished this much, push the Democratic Party further left of center and put the Republicans on notice, that hard right conservatism is on its death bed and they can't ignore it anymore and will have to move to the center, even if it means they have to abandon the hard right and let them regulate themselves to an irrelevant third party status, much like Ross Perot did.

As he said, this is not about him, it's about us, the people taking our power back. But we sure do appreciate your concern.

26. Why would he have to be a member of any party at all to continue the revolution?

That doesn't make any sense, it's not an either/or situation.
