      If that happens, the political, financial and media elite of this country will stop at nothing to defeat us. You know that. We’ve lived through it together once before. Our ideas terrify them. So what they will do is try to divide us up with attacks — some old, some new — and our political opponents will spend obscene sums of money on ads to defeat us.

      I just did not expect the attack ads to begin before I even made a decision. But they have…

      Right now, a group of Wall Street Democrats known as the Third Way is running ads in early primary states — Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada — calling me out by name and saying our ideas, like Medicare for all, are a path to defeat in 2020.

      They not only want to discourage or defeat a Sanders candidacy, they want to make sure that the progressive agenda is not advanced by anyone. They want us to go back to their failed corporate approach which has led to a massive level of income and wealth inequality, a bloated military budget and a failure to address the crises of climate change, a broken criminal justice system and inhumane immigration policies.

      And I have never felt so certain that being a “Democrat” has been sullied, for me, beyond repair.  The irony,  is that the DNC and all of its scaly owners (with apologies to things with scales) are just going after Big Money, they don’t give an aerial intercourse about the people – and that I will be reading from some right here at JPR, IMO, about how “we” need to “unite” around a corporate Dem in order to “beat Trump”.    Willing little tools.  With apologies to good and useful tools.

      I will be supporting, voting for, and extolling and spreading the good word about Bernie.

      Excellent post….”aerial intercourse”.  

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

      You know how they do it.

      Bernie people will counter it and hopefully succeed. Maybe Biden’s people or Kamala’s people can arrange some coin flips.

      Been off the boards for a while, but still following things on social media.

      Time to start getting serious.  The third-way scum have the money, but they lack in honesty, integrity, and all other positive virtues.

      Just look at HOW much our ideas do this…

      There is where all the money goes… They try to infiltrate them in any way possible, including fake letters about how Bernie supporters want to have a little talk with him.

       

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
