The Long Haul - [View all]

I have met so many wonderful folks who envision a better future - both here in the Bernie group, on JackPine Radicals, on Twitter, and Bernie Meetups IRL.

We will have to motivate each other and stay focused and positive as we go into Super Tuesday. We will do well, I believe, in Colorado, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Vermont. These are proportional delegates so he will pick up what he can while Hillary takes the bigger southern states like Texas (remembering that she is winning these southern states that are very conservative - they will not vote for her in the general).

After that it gets brighter as we move on to the Western and Northern states - Bernie's firewall. These states will take us to the convention. Bernie's got to hang in there and so do we - you never know what will happen along the way. Even if it seems that Hillary is ahead we still have the email situation lurking in the background, with a democratic administration still reviewing what she did as Secretary of State. If she is forced to pull out Bernie needs to be ready - whether he is ahead in delegate count or not.

I would also like to say this morning is that I am so proud of all of us. I am sticking with Bernie and the movement for change. Ultimately it goes beyond whether he wins or not. This movement has attracted so much energy and youth that I feel like it is not just an outlier but a fight for the democratic party itself. That is the reason I am still posting on this site. I want folks to know that those of us on the fringe are still here and will not give up. We are not giving in to the Hillary Clintons and Donald Trumps of the world. Capitalism is a horrible, inherently unequal system. I may be getting older now but I am still working for that better world for my kids. It doesn't have to be like this and frankly this oppressive system is not sustainable.

How we help Bernie:

1. Phone bank
2. Canvass
3. Donate

In Solidarity, TBF
