Bernie Quits – Will There Still Be a Revolution?

Bernie quits

The Democratic Party establishment and the media figures who support them have been demanding that Bernie Sanders end his candidacy since about four months ago. Today he quit, with two more weeks to go before the convention.

The “most progressive platform ever” does not include opposition to the TPP, Medicare for all or a fracking ban on public lands. It suggests a $15 federal minimum wage – “over time” (i.e. not now). Oh, and none of this is binding on candidates anyway.

Hillary doesn’t think she owes anything to Bernie’s supporters, and she won’t give us anything. Her campaign wants people to vote against Donald Trump. It’s all about fear of Trump. There is no hope for the future. The lesser of two evils is still evil. They are basically tied in the polls, within the margin of error.

Jill Stein for President.

UPDATE & CORRECTION:

It turns out that although Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary for President yesterday, he did not suspend his campaign. There will still be a contested convention in Philadelphia.

This e-mail came from Felicia Taylor, one of the organizers for the July 24 march in Salt Lake City:

After some re-organizing and time letting the dust settle, the organizers of this group have decided that we are not going to change the purpose of this event. We are STILL #BernieorBust and we are STILL marching to support Bernie’s bid for president on the democratic ticket (or otherwise if he changes course after the convention).

The reasons being that 1 – He DID NOT concede and is still going to a contested convention in two weeks and 2 – We cannot in good conscience support HRC when she is only this far ahead in delegates/votes due to election fraud and injustices against the citizens of this country.

We need to rally behind him now more than ever and show the DNC that not even Bernie could get us to support her being president of our country!

    I’m going to wait for Julian Assange to release something. He said he was going to.

    I don’t think Bernie Sanders wanted any trouble at the convention. It could have been a real mess.

    Richard:

    You always say that you can vote for anybody you want because it doesn’t matter in Utah, but this time might be different. Clinton could actually win over Trump.

      Yes, I could have to decide if I would want my vote for Jill Stein to be the reason Hillary loses in Utah. Not sure yet, but I might be OK with that.

    I think the jewish bolshevik has proven out my long held contention that yes, they are all the same despite their stripes..

    I am still Bernie or Bust and I will continue to be that way. The only reason he endorsed Clinton is because he fears a Trump presidency. I respectfully disagree and I think Hillary would be much worse.

    OMG Trump! Why are the poll numbers like this?

    The revolution is still on, at least for a few more days!

    For Pete’s sake Julian Assange. Release something. We’re dyin’ here!

    There’s a guy who wrote a book about Trump saying he doesn’t think Trump even wants to be president. Maybe he’ll drop out at the last minute and Bob Dole can be the Bernie or Bust guy. :)

    It’s actually hard to see how this race could get any dumber. I wish the world weren’t watching.

    It’s up to you super-delegates. Bernie Sanders is standing RIGHT THERE next to the establishment. Sucks to be you.
