37. Since that hasn't happened yet...

... we're dealing with hypotheticals. I'm planning on winning the lottery someday but so far, that hasn't happened. You're advocating punishment for a thought crime.

Right this minute, Bernie Sanders is a Democratic candidate. If he should win in the primary election, he'll be the Democratic nominee. Bernie Sanders is not a Republican or a third-party spoiler and until we have a Democratic nominee, that won't change.

This primary season on DU has been as bitter as I've ever seen it. Goal posts are being moved all over the field and threats to withhold a vote are now and have always been standard fare in the run up to the primary election.

Until we have a Democratic nominee, Bernie is still a Democratic candidate and his advocacy falls within the purview of DemocraticUnderground.

Once we have a nominee, it will be "election season" and everyone will be on notice to cut the bullshit or plan on pizza.
