    Here is the group that will push on for progressive change after November 2016.

    There were 2600 plus house meetings that listened to Bernie and some of the new leaders of ourrevoution.com

    I went to one last night with 60 people in a loft in East Houston.

    This is a good way to keep involved once you vote in November.

    Bernie sold out by endorsing a wall street puppet. The man lost all credibility.

    And you won't criticize Trump when it comes to money?

    Talk about no credibility.

    Trump sold out our nation's constitution on multiple occasions.

    1. he advocated a religious test for immigration policy.

    2. he is now advocating for a policy of immigration with an ideology test that has already been deemed unconstitutional back during the cold war.

    3. He is advocating committing war crimes as part of his foreign policy.

    Talk about losing all credibility.

    Take this garbage to the Trump thread.


    Bernie Sanders campaigned against the establishment, money in politics, wall street and then endorsed someone who he has been speaking out against. Bernie sold out.

    He played the game. He said if he ran on the democratic platform and lost, then he would support the winner of the ticket. As a man with integrity (something I cannot say about Trump, who has flip flopped on issues like Iraq 15 or so times in the past 15 years) he kept his word, despite how he felt against it.

    If he would have broken his word, and not endorsed Clinton, or ran as a 3rd party candidate, then people like you would be calling him out for a lack of integrity in keeping his word.

    Talk about losing all credibility.

    He broke his words by endorsing someone who represents everything he's fighting for. He endorsed a party that has been working to stack everything against him. Was he paid by DNC under the table? Possibly.

    Bernie Sold Out

    You literally just ignored the premise I laid out for you. He said from the beginning that if he ran on the democratic platform and lost, then he would support the winner of the ticket. Your answer pivots from this premise to "Bernie was paid under the table"......

    The same people who are saying this are the same people who applaud Ted Cruz for not endorsing Trump.

    And also there's a difference between endorsing and campaigning which what Bernie is doing for Hillary.

    Apples to oranges as Cruz is also a corporate hack.

    There's a difference between vowing to campaign for Democrat senate/house seats, and making an appearance at a speech for a democrat governor that also has Clinton as a sublisting.

    However, now we're talking politics rather than principle and ideology, and that tends to bore me since Trump and Clinton have neither.

    Probably because he realizes how much worse Trump is for everything he stands for. Politics is a zero sum game. If you can't have everything you want, you vote for the person closet to your ideals in hopes of making progress. Clinton is far closer to what he wants than Trump is.

    but Jill Stein is closer to his ideals than both Hilary and Trump but the Green party is too poor to pay off Bernie.

    RocketsLegend personifies a Trump supporter. They realize the system is rigged against them, are very discontent , but don't realize who to blame.

    I think the corporate Dems who tried to cleanse the Dem of any populist appeal that might tick off their new Wall Street friends are partly to blame

    50% of income tax going to the largest military in human history, along with hundreds of billions of dollars of corporate welfare yearly (large portion of which is due to stagnating wages) is Relublican socialism :)

    Ps, Democrats too (but they have a few fighters in their numbers).

    Do you actually know anything about Jill Stein? Or any of the candidates, really?

    Besides, Bernie Sanders supporting Jill Stein doesn't help him achieve any of the things he wants to accomplish. It just makes them less likely if Trump is elected President.
