Anyone interested in REAL change and ensuring that President Sanders or Clinton have REAL power

We could have either one of them as President but if we don't have a congress that will back them up, it will be for naught. They will be getting nowhere. AND if we don't have people-power pushing them (and congress) to do something and also backing them up when they do make courageous decisions it will be a total waste. (I know, I know, people are already thinking the "other" candidate is not going to do anything worthwhile.)

We are VERY close to getting a Democratic President AND to getting a Democratic agenda forward. We have a lot of fed-up Democrats, Independents, and Republicans. We may ACTUALLY have a chance to get some angry Independents or Republicans on our side to fight for some common causes.

We are almost there to getting a decent Supreme Court.

I know, I know, this is not a very fun post. It's sort of another "unite" post. I apologize for interrupting all this nonsensical bickering here - it's especially enjoyable when people dig up dirt against Hillary or Bernie so they can help the Republicans in the GE.

There are 3 senatorial candidates (Donna Edwards in Maryland, Ann Kirkpatrick (neck and neck in ARIZONA!), and Catherine Cortez in Nevada) who are running really close elections. We could take back the senate! Please feel free to add any other close races to this thread.

Oh, and Hillary is a corporatist shill and Bernie is a red-faced delusional socialist (sorry, just trying to fit in here)!

Now go back to your name-calling and taunting. It's SO enjoyable and productive.

2. That's why we need a congress and people-power to push in order to get progressive actions through.

It all starts with congress. One person (a president) is no longer enough.

4. I have not seen anyone say they would not vote down-ticket.

 

Pointless rant, it looks like you just wanted to rant a bit. And I see you post a lot in the Hillary group, so I will just consider you threw Hillary supporters in the mix to look even-handed whilst castigating. Castigating and sarcasm are pretty much the anti-uniters, by the way. Just so you know. .

Again, no one said they would not vote down-ticket.

Oh, and I sincerely doubt we will "dig" anything up that the GOP does not already have. Just sayin'.

5. I figured someone would find a way to attack. Nice job. I truthfully am sick of all the bickering.

I could live very happily with either candidate. I'm very worried we are going to blow it with all this infighting. I would like to see people send some money these candidates way.
