7. That IS silencing us.


We, as Bernie Supporters.. between whatever date he picked (IDK b/c I just dismissed the announcement w/o reading it b/c I don't care) and the convention have a job to do and that is to convince democrats that nominating Hillary would be a monumental mistake, not only for the democratic party, but for the United States.

How can you do that without criticizing "her"?

I was on this site from 2001-2004 and fought hard for Howard Dean and left when I was told I was not allowed to criticize Kerry or even respond (when asked) that I was going to vote for a 3rd party.

I came back to this site to advocate for Bernie and against Clinton.

Clinton won't win. She has no viable path to victory. Forgetting the fact that I would never vote her and my parents, who are lifelong democrats plan to vote for Trump over her b/c they are in the #NeverClinton camp, you just need to look at the polling and it doesn't take a genius to figure out she is going to lose and it is going to be President Trump if Clinton is given this nomination.

NOT being able to say that.. that's silencing us.

The only chance Bernie has is to keep up the pressure between June 7th and the convention.. to hammer hard to the point where public opinion turns against her even more.

We will no be allowed to make that case on this site, so I will once again leave and maybe come back in 2020 after 4 years of Trump and see if the democratic party has straightened itself out.

I continue to hope Bernie can make the case and I will continue to advocate against Clinton and for Bernie until election day wherever I can post.
