that Bernie didn't even mention was the huge stolen primary election in California. How can Bernie really expect all those young people, all that young blood, to come out and work for his political revolution if he is tacitly acquiescing to this kind of massive election fraud and thievery? The first thing that must be fixed is our broken election system. Yes, we must get money out of politics, but at the same time, we must do whatever we can to assure fair elections, so that the inspired efforts of millions of voters in going to the polls are not just trampled on and thrown out - with the lamentable result that these young people may be totally disillusioned, and never vote or participate in the political process again.

I saw another video on YouTube tonight, by the Sane Progressive, that came to the conclusion that the massive election steal in California as Hillary claimed victory as the "presumptive nominee" of the Democratic party was nothing less than a political coup that was taking place put on by the corporate establishment of the Democratic party against the people's choice, Bernie Sanders. And that the big, bad anti-Christ Trump was being used as a kind of political blackmail tool to get people to rally behind Hillary, not because of any belief in her or what she stood for, but rather only out of fear of the alternative. I couldn't disagree with her. And Bernie seems to be acquiescing to those blackmail tactics here.
