Take a look at the guy from Vermont

Bernie Sanders is the guy from Vermont you want to look at.  Check his voting record out.  His record in the Senate and the Congress are all about the people.  He has backed or authored legislation for our elderly, our veterans, our kids schools, healthcare for all, and the list goes on and on.

Bernie Sanders is blowing away anyone running for president online.  The polling data is not even closely accurate.  How can a guy that shows up for a rally in Birmingham, Alabama draw 7,000 people?  Last time I checked Alabama was a die hard red state.  Red states are feeling the Bern and love Bernie Sanders.  Every event he shows up at in Iowa is to overflowing crowds.  Some town where the population is just 300 people including children and 700 people show up to hear his message.  People are driving over a hundred miles to hear him speak.  That fact is true because it happens EVERYWHERE he speaks.  In blue states, he fills to over capacity huge venues of over 20,000 people and has to have overflow crowds watch on monitors.  The data of the polls is way off base.  In every political blue states he is on fire with huge crowds having to move venues to larger and larger locations because the demand to see him is that huge.  Now in Red States he is having to move to bigger and bigger venues.  His opponent could reserve a few tables at Denny's to hold an event.  Crowd control is not a problem in their campaign. 

Side bar, what does it say about a Democrat/Independent/Democrat Socialist candidate for President of the United States of America message when he goes to die hard GOP states and holds a rally and 7,000 people come out to see him.  It says volumes.  Alabama is feeling the Bern.

Bernie Sanders is on the heartbeat of America and he is on fire.  He will win Iowa and New Hampshire by a landslide.  While I write this post his numbers are climbing in South Carolina and Nevada.  The so called "Fire Wall" for his opponent is crumbling because his opponent can not even grasp the idea of how to really get in touch with the people. The ability to insert or give enthusiasm to the people just is not there.  It's almost like she knows she is the next president, demands she is the next president, and knows she will be the next president.  Her big corporate sponsors are demanding it too.  Nobody is feeling the love though like they do for Bernie Sanders.

Bernie Sanders fight is our fight.  He does not have a Super PAC and he does not need one if We the People are funding his campaign.  His message is real, his attack plan once President is simple.  Bernie Sanders is going to fight for us and we are going to have to have his back once he is elected.  This campaign is not over once he takes the oath of office.  Bernie is going to need us ALL more than ever when he pushes his Medicare for all plan.  Bernie is going to need us all for his free college tuition at state colleges.  Bernie is going to need us all when he fights to correct our criminal justice system.  I could go on and on but you get the picture.  This battle does not end when we vote for him for President. 

We the people are the POLITICAL REVOLUTION.  We the people will have to stand up and be pitch fork carrying citizens to prod the congress to passing his and our wish list.  It is our country we are going to have to fight for an
d we can do that.  OR, we could vote Democrat across the ballot.  The House and Senate have to go blue for Bernie Sanders presidency to have a chance for all the programs he wants to pass.  If the House and Senate stay in control of the Republicans then he will face the same dilemma as President Obama.  A do nothing and obstructionist Congress.

We the People own our Government.  Time to stand up and join the Bernie Sanders political revolution.

Are you with us?  Donate.  He can't help you if you don't fund him.  BERNIE SANDERS FOR PREZ

Bernie Sanders and African Americans


Long before there was a politically correct name for African Americans there was this guy going to school in Chicago, Illinois that saw a wrong and was arrested for protesting that wrong.  Segregated housing. That was in the 1960's.  That same guy has the same values today in 2016.  Did I mention that he was arrested for protesting?

Folks talk about the Senator from Vermont as if he is a whites only candidate.  What the hell is up with that?  Donald Trump is a whites only candidate and he has endorsements from every racial hating group in America.  What is up with that?  What does that say about the campaign Trump is running?  Has he denied any of their endorsements?

Bernie Sanders marched with Martin Luther King Jr.  He was a young man with core beliefs of what America should be.  He is the same man today.  He has not flip flopped on any issue he believes in to get your vote.  He is not pandering to any race because he is genuine in his thoughts and voting record. 

You can vote for Hi11ary and think you are electing the first woman for president but you are selling yourself out to the people that want to keep you and your people down.  Bill Clinton was loved by the African American community.  Hi!!ary is not her husband.  (notice i did not mention the queen designated the the next presidents name)  We the people are not stupid.  We the people that are funding Bernie Sanders campaign are obliged to no master.  What does a candidate do if they have received millions in donations from Wall Street and every other special interest group that wants to keep America the same old same old back door money for favors deal?

Bernie Sanders does not have a Super Pac and he does not want one.  That fact in itself speaks volumes to his character.  What does his character have to do with the African American community?  It has an amazing amount to do with this election.  INCOME INEQUALITY!

We need to raise our nation up from the lower and middle classes and we can not do that if all the of the income in America goes to the top.  Record corporate profits go in the pockets of the 1% and you try to figure out how to pay the electric bill.  Enough is enough, is enough.

Trickle down economics is a disaster and will never work.  Greed wins.

How do we fix this?  We join the Political Revolution of Bernis Sanders and vote Democrat across the ballot to give him a congress and senate that will pass legislation that helps all of us and not just the 1%.  Become the voice that he was in the 1960's!  He didn't need to know what race your were in the 1960's to protest a wrong.  It was in his gut to do what is right.  He is still the same man.  Bernie Sanders doe not see a Black person, a Chinese person, a Gay person, or even a Republican person to hate.  He sees you as an American and that is all that he cares about.  YOU are and American.  And as he said, no person elected president can do this alone.  He needs us now and come the first day of his presidency.  Join the political revolution.

Why You Should Vote For Bernie Sanders

Forget about the polls and what they tell you is the Democrat Queen of the party.  The polls are all skewed because that data is skewed.  If you were asked if you like hot dogs over hamburgers and then they asked you the topping for each, that is how polling is done.  Do you like potato with dinner or pasta?  What vegetable do you serve most with dinner?  Do you prefer cooking a meal that will make a ton of dishes to wash or just one dish?  Would you vote for someone that is going to make a mess in the kitchen or just have the kitchen sink clean itself?  Would you support someone that delegates the clean up of the kitchen after dinner to only be the woman in the household?

Polls are pushed in the direction of what the survey wants to find.  Then that data is released to the public as our heartbeat on America when it comes to politics.  I have never been polled in my entire life!  Have you?

The Bernie Sanders campaign for President is not about him.  It is about you and me.  The poor slobs working 40 or 50, or even 60 hours a week just to break even.  On top of that we have our spouses doing the same amount of hours in their jobs.  And at the end of the week when the bills are paid we have nothing left over.  All we have left is love and that goes a long way but it doesn't pay the bills.

Bernie Sanders is fighting for our nations pride in front of a wall of money hungry barons that support her royal majesty of the DNC.  She is not electable.  Hillary Clinton is not trustworthy.  Her positions change to whatever her opponent say.  She is the me too candidate with name recognition.  Every single position Bernie Sanders has spoken about she flipped and was suddenly for.  Hillary was for the TPP until Bernie Sanders was against it.  She was against gay marriage for decades and flipped for the campaign.  She was for the Keystone Pipeline till Bernie was against it.  The list goes on for the "Me Too" campaign of Hillary Clinton.

Bernie Sanders is blacked out by the main stream media but not by the people.  We have facebook and twitter and every other social media in the world.  The truth lies in the hands of we the people to elect a President that will fight for the middle and lower classes.  Every campaign rally he speaks at is larger than life with the crowds that come to hear him speak.  Many are true supporters and some are crossover Republicans.  This fight is real.  If our messenger, Bernie Sanders, if he is blocked out then so are you.  Your voice and your vote does not matter.  How do you feel about that?  Are you ready to say enough is enough?  What can you do?  Share the hell out of social media post and this one as well if you want you country back from the billionaires that own it now.  Share the hell out of every post!

Bernie Sanders does not have SUPPER PAC.  He isn't begging the billionaires for money.  He is relying on us.  We need to have his back and support him with our vote and our ten bucks a month or whatever you can afford to do.  Go to Berniesanders.com and donate if you really want your America back.

Bernie's Base is on Fire!

One of the things that I love about the Bernie Sanders campaign is the fact that it is all paid for by working class stiffs like you and me.  We can donate $25 or $35 and feel that we are putting the money to good use.  Our guy Bernie is fighting for us and our wallets!  Medicare for all would save this country and low income families billions of dollars.  College education for all would save our low income families billions of dollars and let many send their children to college because they simply do not have the income to do so!  Rebuilding our infrastructure would put 13 million people to work on our highways, bridges, water plants and the list goes on and on.

Hillary can out raise Bernie Sanders easily early but she can't keep that momentum up.  People get tapped out at the max that you can donate to a political campaign.  Bernie does not have that problem.  Most of his donors are contributing $30 and not $2400 or whatever the max out is.  2.3 million people have donated to Bernie Sanders for president.  That is far beyond what President Obama did in his entire campaign in 2008 and the first primary has not even been held yet!  Those 2.3 million contributors will donate again if the campaign needs them to and they are.  Our guy was under attack from the DNC and we went nuts and donated $1 million bucks in one single day!

Did the Sanders campaign screw up with the DNC, they sure as hell did?  Was I pissed?  You are damn straight I was very upset and disappointed.  But the campaign dealt with it and fired the person responsible.  That is how you deal with a wrong and make it right!  What troubles me is the DNC reaction to cut off all access to the data that the Sanders campaign is required to secure at the DNC server.  The system the DNC has is faulty, the Sanders campaign told them of the problem and they never fixed it 100%.

Now comes my main question.  The Sanders campaign accessed the system 24 times which was wrong, how many times did the Hillary Clinton campaign access the system during these breaches?  She has a greater communications system than Bernie Sanders could ever dream of having.  How much information did they download from the Sanders campaign data?

I've never signed up for anything to do with Hillary Clinton, neither have most of my friends that are very political.  Why are some of them getting emails from the Clinton campaign?  Something is rotten in the wood pile and we all know what it is.

Religious Freedom in the Age of Trump

The Donald has been busy again with his mouth.  First it was the Mexican rapists and murderers and now once more it is the Muslims.  Not long ago he stated that mosques should be shut down.  Now he thinks that we should ban all Muslims from entering the country.  His thought process runs to the side of separatists and that is never good for our nation.  Especially, if you are the one being targeted.

Thomas Jefferson battled the likes of Trump back in his day in the great state of Virginia.  He was the author of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom that passed in 1786.  This statute separated the recognized church from the state.  That same statute was used to write the Constitution of the United States of America.  His thoughts on religious freedom were heavily influenced by John Locke who spoke on the subject in England in 1689.  Locke, like Jefferson fought for peoples right to religious freedom which was for the Muslim, the Jew, and even the Pagan.  Jefferson much like Locke used the word Muslim in defense of and for religious freedom.

Flip the coin on the subject and insert Baptist or Catholic or Jew instead of Muslim.  Could any politician get away with even suggesting that their house of worship be shut down?  Could any politician get elected by banning any of them from entering our country?  Why would it be even remotely okay to even suggest to shut down all mosques or ban all Muslims from coming to America?

How fast would you as a Baptist, a Catholic, or a Jew be up in arms protesting and demanding any politician to step down from the race for President that would suggest such an action against your faith?  Would it be faster if the military starting boarding up your house of worship?  Would you take up arms to defend your religious freedom?  That my friends is what Trump wants to accomplish.  Divide you and separate you and tell you who to fear.  He's up in the polls? 

As Bernie Sanders said recently... "That kind of crap is not going to work in the United States of America."

Seven Problems with Polling and Electing a President

I happen to be a national political junkie.  I follow elections and get all the information my brain can take in on the politics of our nation.  I am a political junkie and have always been one.  The damn polls are wrong.  Toss them out with the cat liter.  They both have the same value.  Nothing.

Polling is done by calling land lines and that in itself should be the first flare.  How many people today still go and grab the big old "Phone Book" to look up the number for the pizza house up the street.  The phone book, like the stage coach is a dying technology.  I'm pretty sure the last stage coach was state of the art but you don't see many of them on the highways today.  Speaking of highways, we live in the digital information highway.  Everyone is online and pretty much everyone owns a cell phone/computer to talk with family and friends and check out what that son of a biscuit eater thought about your cute cat pictures on facebook.

One other thing that pisses me off is the so called lock on African American voters by one certain political campaign.  Nobody owns the African American vote.  Nobody.  If you claim to be in favor of changing the lives of African American voters then you should have been campaigning on it months ago or YOUR ENTIRE POLITICAL CAREER!   One of these candidates has, the other, not so much.

I have a landline but it is connected through our internet service and the "Land Line" costs us twenty bucks a year.  Thank you Magic Jack!  It isn't listed in the phone book because I am not using a recognized carrier for "Land Line" phone service.  Even my 79 year old mother in law no longer keeps a "Land Line" for her phone service.  Her son hooked her up with his cell phone plan years ago where he can have up to five people on his service.

Try this little experiment.  Question your friends and family to find out how many people have "Land Line" phone service.  If you survey thirty people and come back with a tally of one "Land Line" then you know way to many people that are living in the digital age.  Why would you accept polling numbers based on "Land Line" polls as a true sampling of the population?  They might as well poll people using only fax machines! 

Second problem is the push poll of these "Land Line" polls.  A push poll is when you put a biased criteria in-front of the poll that skews the data.  Questions or requirements such as if you voted in the last two elections that would dump your polling data because you did not vote.  That skews the data no matter how you look at it.  Look at the details of the polls questions before you say or print that your favored candidate is way ahead in the polling.

Third problem is the younger generation that is old enough to vote is moved by what the candidates have to say.  That is a huge voting block that is not even remotely considered in the next election because not a single person under 29 has a "Land Line" phone.  Along with them is the huge block of disenfranchised voters that have not voted in twenty or thirty years that are coming out of the rotting wood pile to cast a vote because they believe in what Bernie Sanders is running on for President.

Fourth problem is a GOP and Conservative voter problem.  Many moderate Republicans do not like what their own candidates are saying or running on and are actually looking at Bernie Sanders because they will never vote for Hillary Clinton.  GOP voters are the same as Dem voters and see that health care coverage needs to go further than it has, college education is having them remortgage the house to pay for their kids education, and jobs for those highly educated kids no longer exist and they and the grand kids might end up growing up in mom and dads house.

Fifth problem is that it comes down to people no longer being able to survive in this economy.  When huge corporations post mega profits in the billions of dollars but pay employees sub standard wages then we need a living wage for America and that is fifteen bucks an hour.  We need to stop corporate welfare and penalize companies that expect the country to pick up the slack for their lack of a decent paying payroll.

Sixth problem is Veterans.  Our political leaders wave the flag but every single time a veterans benefits bill comes up the political right side of the aisle in congress always says that our nation can not afford it.  If we can not afford to pay for our wounded warriors then we have no business sending them to war in the first place.  We should change the way votes for going into any conflict demand that the veterans of that conflict get the care and help they need prepaid and not tossed out on the street.  Veterans all across America are supporting Bernie Sanders because he has fought for them for all of his political career.

Seventh problem is Citizens United.  Corporations are not people and should not be allowed to contribute even one single penny to political campaigns.  President Teddy Roosevelt said it in his time and Bernie is shouting at the rafters in our time to end Citizens United.  Our elected representatives oversee the commerce of this country and Citizens United makes a mockery of the congress for sale.  If you donate enough money then a vote in the United States Congress can and will be bought.

I urge you to actually look at what Bernie Sanders has fought for over the many years he has been in congress and you will be a "Land Line" less supporter.  You just wont be polled for your opinion because you don't count.  But your vote counts!  Feel the Bern and vote for Bernie Sanders.

Hugs at ya all,
