and that is exactly what is going on, let's just hope the American public keeps waking up
at the rate they clearly have been so far. It's such a beautiful sight to behold, and to
be a part of.

Thank you litlbilly for the OP, and thank you Bernie for putting it all on the line for We the People!!!

But he has to get past the primary election, and the Democratic Party will make that as difficult as possible.

I've followed Bernie ever since he was on Thom Hartmann's show in Portland many years ago. I always wished more people were listening then. Now, that seems to be happening. I don't think he needs to change anything, just keep doing what he's been all along. Talk about the issues that people care about. The only way I would support Hillary: If she gives back all the big bank money, all the drug company money and does it like Bernie is doing, a purely people powered campaign, then I would believe her. I don't dislike Hillary, I just really like Bernie and what he stands for.

That's not a flippant question. What is the message that will appeal to EVERYONE (not just DU members), such as more conservative Democrats in Texas? Or moderate Republicans and Independents in States like Florida and Ohio who have elected Tea Party Governors?
And where will he get the resources to compete with a Republican with $1B in cash?

I also think the right wing red arrow in your Hillary logo does you guys no good. It just looks like something Rush Limbaugh would come up with.
