Sign this urgent petition to Senator Sanders: "Continue the campaign to the convention"





Let It Bern. Continue to the Convention.
An urgent petition to Senator Bernie Sanders:


Go to this link to sign the petition:

http://act.rootsaction.org/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=12302


Test of the Petition:

While you are under huge pressure to abandon your presidential campaign, we urge you to complete the process of fully representing the millions of people who've worked, donated and voted for you. We hope that you will resist the latest calls from the Democratic Party establishment and corporate media to end our campaign before the national convention.

This petition offers the names and personal statements of people from around the United States who echo a broad public outcry for this nomination process to reach its full conclusion.

Your campaign has clearly stood for democratizing the United States, while insisting that democratic principles must apply to the Democratic Party. We believe that every vote should count -- including on the convention floor. That should mean a roll call vote on the nominee for president as part of an official process, including the nominating and seconding speeches.

It remains significant that neither candidate will win the 2,383 pledged delegates necessary to secure the nomination, and -- contrary to the misleading media reports -- neither candidate can do so until the superdelegates vote at the convention in Philadelphia.

You have said, and we have cheered as you've said it, that you will carry this campaign to the convention. We urge you to maintain that position, despite the massive top-down pressures from the corporate media and Democratic Party establishment to prematurely end the campaign.

We reject the idea that democracy weakens a political party named for democracy. We have worked for constructive debate at the Democratic National Convention, and we look forward to hearing it.

3. no. it really is over. It's the height of delusion to think that

8. Cut the bull shit personal attacks and slanders. Perhaps you need to nominate someone for President

 

The Democratic Party delegates have not selected Clinton and may not in five weeks.

Keep the blinders on.

Do you really want to let big business and Wall Street continue their domination and control of the Democratic Party?

If you do, just be honest and say so.

OK?

Big Business and Wall Street banksters are funding the Democratic Party national convention and I bet you also think that's just peachy.

10. When you claim the delegates might not select Hillary at the convention you are lying.

It's a done deal, she's going to be the nominee. There is no indictment fairy coming to change the outcome and there will not be a single delegate flipping to Bernie on the basis of general election polls.

9. Even if Bernie wanted to stay in

(which he likely doesn't) the entire Democratic establishment has rallied around the presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton.

So go ahead and sign your petitions if it makes you feel better.

Just so you follow your leader when he brings his candidacy to a conclusion shortly after the DC primary next week.

Thank you
