My Discussion w/ Millennials @ The Dispensary

As you all know Colorado is booming with newbies especially Millennials due to the marijuana industry.
There are no old folks working in this industry so the dispensaries and grow warehouses are breeding grounds for Bernie/Bust movement.

All these kids I spoke to yesterday are brand new to Colorado and swear they will not vote or will write in Bernie come November.

I asked why would you want to see Colorado turn to being a RED state again?

Whuuuutttt???? THAT WON'T HAPPEN I WAS TOLD.

These kids had no idea George Bush won Colorado twice - the first time by A LOT. They are under the impression that since we legalized marijuana Colorado is solid blue.

What I heard from them was a Bernie Sanders speech. They've heard it so many times they know it by heart. None expect Sanders to endorse Hillary much less campaign for her and if he does...well under the bus and heads will explode.











GET CONTROL, SENATOR SANDERS, OR GET OUT - Newsweek

Violence. Death threats. Vile, misogynistic names screamed at women. Rage. Hatred. Menacing, anonymous phone calls to homes and offices. Public officials whisked offstage by security agents frightened of the growing mob. None of this has any place in a political campaign. And the candidate who has been tolerating this obscene behavior among his supporters is showing himself to be unfit for office.

So, Senator Sanders, either get control of what is becoming your increasingly unhinged cult or get out of the race. Whatever respect sane liberals had for you is rapidly dwindling, and the damage being inflicted on your reputation may be unfixable. If you can’t even manage the vicious thugs who act in your name, you can’t be trusted to run a convenience store, much less the country.

When Bernie Sanders launched his presidential campaign, he seemed to be the kind of candidate who would inspire voters from the liberal blocs of the Democratic Party, push the party leftward and influence the future direction of politics—either as the nominee or as a force for change. But Sanders has increasingly signaled that he is in this race for Sanders, and day after day shows himself to be a whining crybaby with little interest in a broader movement. His vicious—and often ridiculous—attacks on the party whenever he doesn’t win a contest have inspired a level of ignorant fanaticism among a large swath of his supporters that is becoming more akin to what might be seen at an out-of-control rally for Donald Trump. Signs are emerging that the Sanders campaign is transmogrifying into the type of movement through which tyrants are born.

The ugly was on display at the recent state convention of the Nevada Democratic Party, where Hillary Clinton won more delegates than Sanders. Now, this should hardly have been a surprise to anyone except the Sandernistas, whose certainty in their righteousness has overwhelmed any commitment they may have ever had to democracy. Sanders lost the Nevada caucuses in February by more than 5%. A rational person who cared about the will of the people would presume that Clinton would emerge from the state with the most delegates. But Sanders supporters were outraged—outraged!—that the person with the largest number of votes ended up with the largest share of delegates.http://www.newsweek.com/bernie-sanders-get-control-get-out-race-461195
