My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
As much as Bernie Sanders supporters will say that they will never vote for Hillary Clinton in the end they will. Comparing the Democrats the Republicans is like comparing apples and bananas. There is going to be a decisive winner of the democratic nomination not so much on the Republican side. You add in the fact that the three candidates and I include John Kasich in this have draconian views of how to run our country. Lower the taxes for the rich and take away as many of the safety net programs for the poor is how they look at our country in the future. The Democrats will keep on the path that President Obama has started and continue our economies flourishing. So in the end there will be no choice but to vote for Hillary Clinton. Sitting out the election after listening to what the Republican nominee will say during debates and commercials will be impossible for Bernie Sanders supporters. I have said this repeatedly, I would vote for whomever the Democratic party nominates. AVB http://www.opposingviews.com/i/politics/it-will-be-easy-establish-unity-democratic-party
This is a preview of what Bernie Sanders will say in an exit interview. The path to his nomination is so narrow that it is an impossibility. I know that this is disappointing millions and millions of his supporters. I know exactly how they feel. I was there in 2008 and watched the death of a Thousand Cuts to the Hillary campaign. Now I hope that’s just as I did in 2008 the Sanders supporters will understand how important having Hillary Clinton in the white house will become once they hear what the Republicans have to offer. You know I heard Donald Trump say last week that he was in favor of letting transgender individuals go to the bathrooms of their choice and I think that’s about as much that he will give to the Progressive Movement as we’re going to hear from that man. He is not to be trusted, and we need a commander-in-chief not an Entertainer and chief. AVB http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/bernie-sanders-acknowledges-narrow-path-nomination
I love how his campaign says he’s toning down his message but he talks with forked tongue. I would call for Bernie Sanders to release his math grades from high school has he obviously does not understand how that works. I would also ask that you release all of his tax returns just as Hillary Clinton has. Or is his wife still fumbling through the file cabinet to find them? I was just invited to a vote for Bernie Sanders event and when I said I wasn’t interested and I supported Hillary Clinton they told me that I was a troll on Facebook. I had to that point never even come close to a Bernie Sanders Facebook group. And yet Bernie Sanders supporters are everywhere on Hillary groups. Enough is enough.

Delegate math: How Tuesday could close door on Sanders bid I love how this Washington Post article says that Bernie Sanders has no honest way of getting the nomination, after Tuesday, if Hillary does as well as the polls are saying. But then of course there’s that word honest. It says that the Sanders campaign plans to reevaluate they’re continuing campaign after Tuesday’s elections. Let’s hope they re-evaluate and go for party Unity.

Bernie Sanders and his holier-than-thou view of the world is hypocritical. I am so fed up with listening to him say over and over again that he does not have super Pacs. First of all he does. Second of all candidates do not control their super Pacs. I could set up a Super PAC for Robert Dole who is 96 right now and raise money in the super pack but Robert Dole would have no say about it. That is what is so wrong with Citizens United and all of the black money that’s in our system right now. So Bernie Sanders stop criticizing other people because they can’t control what super Pacs do for them. It’s against the law.
