Wow. That may have been Bernie’s best yet. Powerful stuff. He went there time and time again. No middle ground, indeed. Solid libertarian pro-choice position–it’s none of the government’s business. The crowd at the entrance was chanting Give ’em all the Bern!, and Bernie did just that. Even finished with the idea of building a new nation.
His final words are a delicious irony: We will go forward together!
Except he led up to it with exactly what he means by the phrase, and he’s no Clinton or Biden. In short, this was great oratory. Unlike Obama’s, Bernie’s oratory is much more in-you-face and down to earth.
In Western mystical terms, if Obama’s rhetoric invoked the element of Air, then Bernie’s does the same with that of Earth. Kind of like an earthquake, which, come to think of it, could describe the fate of our current ruling edifice should Bernie actually win. Obama just blew through and around the titanic political buildings of Wall Street–Bernie will shake them to their foundations.

There’s a lot of discord at this convention. I posted Lauren Steiner’s video of the floor session. They really do not like independent media there. She knew some of the MSMs that were gathered there. It looked like to me they were harassing the progressives once again. The guy who got elected head talked about healing and to get over 2016! LOL! Democrats OMG!
vote for nobody
