I believe Bernie is building a new party, one with honesty, integrity and

working for all the American people, not just a few of the wealthiest. And
he is building this new party without any change in its name: It is still
The Democratic Party.

It seems rather odd, come to think of it. He had been an Independent all his
political life, and did not join the Democratic Party until he announced his
decision to run for the presidency this year!!

This change is coming from within - it's the Soul of the Democratic Party that
will be leaving behind all the corruption of the past, and embracing, instead,
Honesty, Integrity and Dedication to the betterment of our entire nation.

We are going to help Bernie succeed!

8. Of late he has improved. But in the past he tried too hard to have the Republicans join him in

 

the spirit of bipartisanship. It seems that now he realizes that the Republicans don't want
any bipartisanship. They're strictly only interested in having things on their own terms.
It's their way, or the highway. And the Republicans were mostly successful in getting
their way.

An example: After one bargaining session with the President, Boehner came out and
boasted that he had gotten 98% of what he wanted!

10. I don't vote for labels.

 

"I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever, in religion, in philosophy, in politics, or in anything else, where I was capable of thinking for myself. Such an addiction is the last degradation of a free and moral agent. If I could not go to heaven but with a party, I would not go there at all." Thomas Jefferson

12. You may call them "labels" if you wish, but to older people, they represent names

 

of presidents, who knew how to run the government. They also knew how to let
the people have some say. This was so unlike the situation today, where the
government listens only to the corporations, and the people have no influence
in the government at all. We're no longer a democracy, but an oligarchy.

I'd prefer the government that is of the people, by the people and for the
people - the way it used to be at one time, when America's greatness was a beacon
to the world. Now the money- and power-mad corporations have taken over. Just
about every-one and everything can be bought. And corruption runs amok in places
high and low, and everywhere else in between. How degenerate have we become!!!
Many can't help but admit that we've become no different from a Third-World nation.

20. Let's come back and revisit this complete collapse when the votes come in

 

It is a watershed moment, as is evident from the desperate flailing. Bernie had one thing going for him: he seemed honest. It turns out he (and/or his people) are common thieves, and clowns to boot.

It's been all over but the crying. Now it is just an embarrassment.

23. Of course, the question should also be raised, Why would anyone do such a thing in the

 

first place, when it could be had just by asking?

Now that the case has been brought to court, we will know soon enough.

25. It could not have been had just for the asking

 

The Clinton campaign spent millions of dollars and thousands of man hours on the data the Sanders campaign stole.

No way would they give it to the Sanders campaign for the asking.

28. The information obtained by the DNC should be equally and impartially available to any Democratic

 

candidate for president. There should be no favorites over others. Just be patient. All this
ought to be coming out very soon. Some of it might even be discussed during tomorrow's
Dem. Primary debate -- I hope.

30. That's not the data at issue here.

 

The data at issue is the Clinton campaign strategic entries on the voter lists which show which voters may be only moderately supporting Hillary as opposed to which voters strongly support Hillary. There's an entire grading system in there used for developing call and GOTV lists.

This data is incredibly critical in the early states and can mean the difference at the caucus and primary in Iowa and New Hampshire. The Clinton campaign spent millions on this strategic data and they've been developing it since before Sanders ever announced.

You may want to get better informed about what is actually going on here. The data is pretty meaningless outside the caucuses and primaries.

It's hard to talk about honesty and integrity when you just got caught with your hand in the cookie jar and instead of coming clean with an independent audit, you file a lawsuit and stomp your feet.

21. Just be a little patient. We may yet get the full story. And sooner than one might expect.

 

That is the whole purpose of Bernie Sanders' law-suit.

The third Democratic Primary debate will take place tomorrow (Saturday) evening.
I wonder if this subject would be brought up. Most likely it will be.
