Bernie Sanders Steps Up CRITICISM Of Hillary Clinton, Supporters: "WE WILL NOT STOP!"




The Bernie Sanders campaign rolled into Ft. Collins, CO just one day after a resounding loss to Hillary Clinton in South Carolina. Over 6,000 people filled the basketball arena at Colorado State University in Ft. Collins, CO, where Bernie Sanders dialed up his rhetoric in challenging the former Secretary of State on her ties to Wall Street, her vote to authorize the Iraq War, and her campaign's argument that incremental change that is likely is more practical than radical change that is difficult to achieve.

it will be trumpeted as an Epic Triumph. Just like the ACA - a windfall for Big Insurance and Big Pharma - was.

Barf.

He raised $0 for downticket races. President doesnt hand out loaves, congress/senate do. Which is why Hillary has raised 10s of millions for downticket races.

I fucking hate the fact that once again we are going to hand the keys over to Wall Street and Big Corporations. WE are sewing the seeds of our own destruction -- or rather fertilizing those voracious Weeds that are already overgrown and choking out life for the rest of the garden.

I am not some naive millennial. I'm 63, have seen all the warnings that people like Bernie were giving in the 80's and 90's come true, and now we're once again ignoring the handwriting on the wall. We're paving the path to a dystopia.

Even if Clinton ekes out a win, the Big Money Big Power crowd will still have the thumbs on the scale.

I guess that makes you happy. It pisses the hell out of me.

This will force Trump to run third party and clinch the presidency for the Dems.

If you have a youtube account, hover your mouse over the bottom, near the right, of the video, while it is playing or paused, until you see "Watch on www.youtube.com". Click on that, and then you can like it (You may be asked to log in. That only takes a second, and you don't leave the page).

This is good news. I'm glad to hear this. I think he's been way too laid-back, he needs to point out her flaws, her many, many, many flaws.
