Yes I know what's at stake, and that's why I refuse to validate the corrupt party establishment

with my expected obedience any longer. I've become aware that continuing to add my microvolt of power to keep the machine alive is not, as the rulers would have you believe, contributing to a better world. Bernie's campaign represents a glimmer of hope for a true departure from the as-usual business of using politics to concentrate wealth and power through war, fraud, and advantage. Hillary's campaign represents the status quo. Save the preaching and shaming for those who can't see the walls of their prison. I'm clear.

4. Excellent post, recommended

I think many are waking up to this same feeling, they are done giving aid and comfort to a totally corrupt system. I was told in another thread in a response to one of my comments that Hillary represents change, and not the status quo...I couldn't believe it, how could they seriously say this with a straight face? Hillary represents the ultimate establishment and status quo candidate...shaking head...Hillary supporters often seem so out of touch when I read their comments...

There is only one way to move forward and it's to actually move forward. What sounds simple isn't necessarily easy, but it helps the focus. Yes, we all got the wake up call.

6. They don't care. They think the disaffected Republicons will flock to them

and make up for disaffected progressives in the voting booth.

The sad truth is that Hillary is the "great uniter" - of the Republicon party.

8. K&R

IF there are no consequences for the behavior, there is no reason to change the behavior. If Clinton DWS and the DNC Corporate cabal pull this off - all that means to them is that it worked. So it will happen again. They just keep making th boogie-man more and more insane - so you have something to contrast with.

A Revolution costs, in pain and suffering, set-backs, etc, etc, etc......... Change isn't easy, or free.
