Difference between night and day

I spent the morning on multiple news websites finding out all I could about the latest whistle blower revelations. I saved FOX till last. I did not see a single person or article criticize Trump. Pretty much most saying it was just a which hunt, Trump did nothing wrong or Democrats are just poor losers. I don't see many republicans ever even criticizing the president. The House will vote for impeachment but will never get it through the Senate.
My hope is that everyone involved in the cover-up get their chance to stand before the house and explain what they did and why . Hopefully, the Attorney General and others can be convicted of something and removed from office.

Georgia Democrat Sanford Bishop on Georgia races:

"You can't take nothing for granted, Mickey Mouse could show up on the ballot and if he has an R by his name, he is going to get at least 35%of the support"
Sad but true in Georgia.

Tomorrow the work of Christmas begins.

"When the song of the angel's is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are gone, When the shepherds are back with their flock
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace to the peoples,
To make music in the heart"

-Howard Thurman

How does one become a "supporting" member?

I have thoroughly enjoyed the several months I have been here. I assume there is a cost for this site but I have not been able to find more info in this area.

I was disappointed to read today that if Bernie does not win, he says he...

...will not endorse Hillary unless she gets on board with with certain parts of HIS beliefs and platform.
This makes him seem more like a third party candidate and not a true democrat if he refuses to endorse the winner unless he gets his way. Please don't let us go back to the days of Ross Perot and Ralph Nader and end up with a Trump or Cruz presidency.
That is just my take on his comment.

I early voted in the Georgia primary today.

After much thought, I came to the decision that Bernie was not electable so I voted for Hillary.
I did have to ask myself, was I voting for her because, while I like Bernie, was it because of how nasty and obnoxious Bernie's supporters are on DU.
After much thought, it still boiled down to I just don't feel he has a chance against the GOP machine and will not be able to capture the nomination.
I hope my Hillary friends are not like some of Bernie supporters who say they will NOT vote for the nominee unless it is Bernie.
I will vote for whoever the nominee is.

I recently saw a good list of socialist accomplishments ...

...but I can't find it. Some examples were our interstate highway system, medicare, SS, etc. I would like to get the complete list for my friends who don't understand the meaning. Thanks.

A second opinion: To all of you that are SICK of the BASHING on the DU

It goes both ways! If you feel you have to do that to make a point, then you are persuading no one but those who feel the same as you. That will be as successful as trying to convert a right wing fanatic to become a democrat. Just stop it!

When I first found DU,

...I thought this was a great site for me.
Since I didn't understand the different forums, I was banned for my first post from the Bernie Sanders forum because I commented on how I thought how disgusting it was for Dems to attack each other, which I saw on that forum. Again, I did not even understand it was even a Bernie forum.
Since then I have tried to not waste my time in the specific forums but I have found it difficult when I look at the "Trending Now" and "Greatest Threads" because when I open them, in most cases it is just more attacking of one or the other by those supporting one of the candidates. I have no interest in reading their BS attacks. If I want that, I will watch FOX news. I also don't need them telling me how great their candidate is.
I will support the Democrat nominee, no matter who it is.
I would also suggest that the "Trending Now" and "Greatest Threads" identify in the title which forum they are in.
I no longer read them because once again I find them both nothing more than attack ads and disgusting.

Our president.

I just watched today's presidential new conference.
Wow! What an impressive individual.
About half way through I caught myself comparing him to GWB. Then thought how truly fortunate and blessed we are to have him as our leader rather than John McCain or Romney.
