2. Change. Change and trust,

and a genuine feeling that he can rebuild the middle class and a future for America.

Enough is Enough. I'm done the old politics. It's time to fix our issues.

3. And that is more or less

what my Canadian neighbours said New Year's Eve as they were laughing at the Repukkkian clown car...

Even they see Bernie as the only hope in the up-coming elections...they were also happy that they had taken the government of Canada away from the conservatives...

4. Remember, even if Bernie wins, it's up to us to support his agenda in the streets

The oligarchs and "their" media, as Rhett o Rick so aptly puts it above, will throw everything they can at him it in order to defeat him, and, failing that, to prevent him from acting effectively as president.

The oligarchs just don't get it. They're the bad guys. They're the one who are out to replace government of the people, for the people, by the people with government of the people, for the oligarch, by their bought and paid for political stooges. They are traitors and we will not let them win.

And, if one of their stooges in either party wins, we'll still be in the streets.


There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious—makes you so sick at heart—that you can't take part. ... And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop.
--Mario Savio



We wiil not fight their wars for oil. We will not allow the NSA to listen to us. We will not obey the rulings of any ISDS. We will not let them shoot us with impunity.

And won't change his agenda in office.

5. Bernie

 

Rode in on the Occupy waves. This is to his credit and he is making MORE waves!

But I do give OWS credit for the first wave that changed a LOT. my opinion.

(In case any question, I am 100% for Bernie 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟💕🌟🌟🌟not to mention solar love)

8. We should replace Columbus day with Mohamed Bouazizi day, the man who inspired Arab Spring...

 

... that also helped Occupy be a global movement when the Arab Spring basically swept through the Middle East after he set himself on fire in Tunisia.

10. I disagree.

I prefer "Indigenous Peoples" day since Columbus was the scumbag who, when visiting the West Indies, said "These people would make good slaves".

11. You're right, we should have indigenous people day holiday...

 

... as more of a replacement for that specific holiday. But later we will need some holiday to commemorate the people's revolution that I think may happen if Bernie wins, and that is coupled with so many other uprisings around the globe too. Perhaps giving this man too much credit for all of the events going on, but he did give us life to start the Arab Spring, which arguably has had a major effect on the upheavals everywhere.

I guess my comment here was more of a personal note that he is a lot more of a hero than Columbus, who absolutely was not a hero in my mind, and the opposite of someone who should have a day commemorating an individual. And if we commemorate someone like that in the middle east, perhaps that will also take away from ISIS trying to redefine the revolution over there to something that more is aligned with terrorism, than a battle for people's rights everywhere that could be defined with such a holiday.
