Democrats trying to hijack Bernie's Political Revolution

Will Bernie get Burned at the Convention?

The Clinton campaign and the media — such as the cable news channels like CNN and MSNBC) — are acting as though the 2106 Democratic primary is already over after Bernie lost 4 of the 5 States that voted last Tuesday. Actually, they were behaving that way since Bernie lost New York. No, they've been in that mode since Bernie lost Iowa to Clinton by 0.03%.

Can "Sore Loser" laws prevent Bernie Sanders from running as an Independent?

Among the world's democracies, the United States has by far the worst ballot access situation. Each state writes its own ballot access laws, even for federal office. Sometimes these laws clearly are intentionally written to force one- or two-party domination. Since there is no single standard for the whole nation, the public and even the media are generally ignorant about ballot access laws.

Here's why Kevin Jones is a Slime Ball

* Just a quick note, because I'm busy with another project, but I had to post something. In his article at Mother Jones, Kevin Jones writes: Here's Why I Never Warmed Up to Bernie Sanders — and he follows it ups with another post: In Which I Respond to My Critics About the Bernie Revolution. So I respond to some Kevin Jones's remarks in his first post with my own comments.

Why should Bernie run as an Independent? Because he’d win.

Bernie Sanders has already insisted that he would back whoever the Democratic nominee may be; and has wife Jane has said he won't risk splitting the Democratic party ticket and giving Trump a win. Of course, many people will argue that many of the people who are supporting Bernie aren't even Democrats (so there's nothing to "split") — and many wouldn't have even voted if Bernie had not been in the race. And as far as "Berniecrats" are concerned, their "party" is already united (therefore, there's nothing to "unify").

No, mainstream media, Bernie Sanders in NOT dropping out

Why doesn't the media ever ask Hillary Clinton: "If Bernie Sanders wins the nomination, will you and your supporters endorse and support Bernie Sanders?"
