The wealthy establishment needs to be removed from office (GOP as well as DNC) https://youtu.be/2QJjlX4m0lU

Perhaps some help in doing so:

Bernie correctly says He can't do it alone it's gonna take all offices!

Yes, indeed, he should have gotten the message loud and clear in New York when the dirty tricks were used and revealed.

Even after much hard work, stumbling is still possible but we can restart the phonograph, can't we? It can take multiple persons to succeed, even in a movie.

Yes, I fell into the same trap as Tera eRex. At the time I commented, the voting results had not been completed but I suspected that the 'leave' camp would have the upper hand over the 'remain' camp.

England and Wales voted to leave but Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to stay. When looking from afar one tends to see the dominant component as being representative, it's a bit like me being called an American, overseas, but a Mexican, Canadian, Brazilian, or Argentinian, etc., are usually not called an American by (especially) the anglophone world.

The E.U. governance structure seems to be too far away from the control of the peoples it affects, a bit like how we could have party nominations/primaries/cock-us-es/elections stolen, bribed, or traded off through the super-delegates or electoral college we have in the U.S.A.

The U.K. consented to the unification of Germany after the fall of 'die Mauer' by accepting the pan-European dream that the E.U. carries. Well, dreams can easily turn into nightmares, can't they? Unified Germany has become the heavyweight in influence in the E.U.

The U.S. got through similar growing pains successfully because at that time, our several states had the most formidable common enemy, the British Empire, which still treated us as breakaway colonies. Perhaps Russia can become the bogeyman for uniting the E.U. politically but even after the downing of the Malaysian civilian airliner over eastern Ukraine, the E.U. has not beefed up in its spirit going against Russia. I feel sorry for the cursed fate of the Russian people but Russia/Soviet Union has been switching sides in the major wars of the 20th century. It has never been a dependable ally. It's still being led by cavemen, with territorial lusts oozing wild from their dingleberries (Catherine the Great might also have oozing dingleberries when colluding with Prussia to annex Poland, planting the seed for the bloodiest century in all of the world's history).

The proper policy of the E.U. towards Russia should be a chamber policy: to draw a circle for Russia to kneel in and let Russia balance a big chamber pot full of pee and poo on its head while chamber music is being played in the background to soothe the Slavic soul. After all, isn't Russia being led by Poo Tin the Great perching precariously on its head? He must be clapping his hands now because his bombings in Syria has triggered the breakup of the E.U. but that shakes things up badly for Russia's future, too.

If the E.U. has been subverted by the eelites, it's easier to tear it all down to start over. Perhaps Europe will learn the scorched-earth strategy from Russia when Russia invades again as it has already done for centuries. Younger Germany needs to relearn the lesson through more wars if it doesn't want to learn from grandparents or history books. The Russian people also need to go through yet another bloodbath to cleanse its poop. I assure you that the Germans still carry the genes of the Teutonic warrior tribes. I'm glad that right now they have the mommy (die Mutti) in charge, a civilizing influence in a family.

England [NOT UK] did - "kiss EU goodbye"!!! Scotland was strongly for remaining within EU tho!! Ergo a Second Scotland Independence Referendum - is NOT going to be far away ... possibly! The EU could be democratized and built into a bulwark against Neoliberalism and the Bankers have to be defeated & that can ONLY happen (imo) on a Transnational Basis .. ie within EU. The early beginnings of such a Trans-national 99% Resistance Movement is there. Now it needs to spread. I think that you'll be interested in:

Yes, I saw Sanders on Colbert last night too. He may not be endorsing Hillary, but he later said that he would probably vote for her. That's depressing! What's the difference? I think that he is trying to convince himself that by supporting her that we will be on a path to systemic change. Deep down, I think he knows better.

I saw Bernie on Colbert last night. Colbert tried to get Bernie to say that he was gonna endorse HRC. Bernie wouldn't - instead he kept on with his intent to forward his platform. What happens after the DNC nomination convention? I don't know - but I keep telling Bernie that if he were to endorse HRC that it would make his whole campaign a lie.

The street's name is Wall Street, isn't it? It's just angina clintoris but Brexit tries to shake it off. Just feel the temblors in the financial markets! U.K. kisses E.U. goodbye. Orange is the new white. "God also made me fast."

Headphones on drivers were illegal but conversing on cellphones and texting by drivers are still legal in many states. Temporo-lobotomy is far more dangerous than loud music but the difference was that young people blared music but rich people used cellular phones and telephone company had lobbyists to defend corporate profits.

Did you know that in many States although running a pedistrian over with a motor vehicle is a felony (vehicular homicide,) there is no law against running a bicylisit over with a motor vehicle? So, say for example if somebody's little kiddie who wanders out in the street gets hit, big trouble, but say if the the same little kiddie rolls out into the street on a big wheel and gets hit by a car, no biggie; that is perfectly ok.

Bernie is not out to win. He is out to herd. Just watch.

Getting greener is the only rational way forward as far as our posterity is concerned. Jill Stein seems to be the only reasonable choice.

We have such a huge slowly creeping-to-a-catastrophe environmental problem that we need a conscientious leader who gets it and works assiduously towards heading it off. I'd like to vote for Stein/Sanders 2016. Due to his experience, Bernie can be very helpful in negotiating with Congress and he may be more powerful in that role because he will not be encumbered by possessing the final authority (which limits flexibility).

Jill Stein/Bernie Sanders 2016!

I can't help but think that Sanders might lose the chance to become the Democratic nominee if he were to concede the race, and then Hillary were indicted, or couldn't serve for some reason. And he would most likely lose a prime speaking spot at the convention.

How cool would it be if Sanders launched his candidacy for a third party run for the Presidency at the Democratic convention?

I'm grateful to Bernie Sanders however I think he has made the biggest blunder in modern American political history by not going third party. The most opportune time was directly after the New York primary.

He'd be surging in the polls now instead of running after the Democratic platform which would have been rendered meaningless when Clinton came in third place behind Sanders and Trump. Ho hum. It's going to take me a long time to get over that lost opportunity. I think I need a vacation, :).

Exactly. Buh-bye. We need to start supporting candidates we can BELIEVE in and quit voting for the lesser of two evils. It is the only way our children and grandchildren will see a better world (maybe more beautiful too.)

Jill Stein for President! Bernie, you should get yourself on the ballot, goddamnit!!

Another note sent off to Bernie at - contact Bernie Sanders at his senate address

Bernie! You can not endorse HRC as it would make your whole campaign a lie.

Instead u should be looking into endorsing Brand New Congress http://brandnewcongress.org/

as well as looking into self identified Berniecrats http://berniecrats.net/ for possible endorsement opportunities.

Supporting the current establishment would only make your whole campaign a lie and disillusion millions who have come out in support of your campaign.

You are so very correct when you say at your campaign rallies and debates THAT establishment politics is broken (DNC & GOP) and that WE ALL have to work together to fix government so that it works for EVERYONE.

We Can Survive An Unworthy President (history proves it) as long as we do not have an unworthy majority in office underneath the presidency (state as well as federal).

You should be concentrating on endorsing others who are like you and truly support your campaign platform to all offices that are coming up for election in all 50 states.

let the horrific story that is Drumpf running against HRC play itself out.

Concentrate on making the needed changes that you can!!!!

ENDORSE for a government of by and for the people!

As you correctly say the president can not do it alone. I add = not for good and not for evil. It takes a working majority.

elect a Brand New Congress

Who’s proposing this?

Right now, this is just an idea that some of us Bernie volunteers and former staff have been talking about with each other. We're all busy working for Bernie until he's in the White House. But we're proposing the campaign for a Brand New Congress as something to work on next. Only something as big and worthwhile as this can keep the revolution going—and it's the only way to give Bernie the ability to make real change from the White House. If you would like updates or to get involved, please sign up and one of us will be in touch.

The forum is what it is = locked

Near death?

Sure - the only ones keeping it alive are making fewer and fewer posts and comments.

Will the plug be pulled?

I don't know.

Does anyone look in here anymore?

I don't know.

I still copy comment links to place elsewhere.

It's just the expected post-primary/cock-us fatigue and disappointment. I think that many people have started to realize the truth of the sheepdog hypothesis about Bernie Sanders.

I advised not to take it too seriously because my mom used to tell me, "Bump your head to it. Then you will get it!" (She never said what 'it' was) You know how many 'bumps' I have got by now? Wisdom often grows from bumps, really. Take it all in perspective - the efforts are not in vain, as my mom would have said, "It's educational."

It's actually a very American way to get educated. How did the U.S. become the most innovative society? We instituted post mortem's galore and we are renowned for debating whether and how much to shut the barn door after our animals have been attacked or escaped from 'the farm'. I bet that Obummer, coming through the Accidental/Colombia, knows of the Barnyard or at least the Standafford before arriving at Hogwart.

Keeping the forum open involves expenses for sure but it is miniscule relative to the influence it exerts. The U.S. spends huge sums militarily and diplomatically to buy influence worldwide.

You, frf, should be happy about trying to work through the Demonkraptic Partei. It looks like a 'cul-de-sac.' Pardon my French. Born free. Live free. Die free.

Systemic or revolutionary change will not come about by investing much of our efforts in a corrupted electoral process ... one that is reponsible for bringing us here.

This primary has illustrated that it is not just the Republicans that are screwed up. To insinuate otherwise just feeds into a faux narrative, with the implication being that all we need is more Democrats to make things right again.

Sanders may fulfill his pledge to support Hillary and reign in many in the left back into the Democratic Party where we will be given crumbs to appease us, while our overall downward slide continues.

In so doing, Bernie will let down many supporters who believe that now is the most opportune time to start a viable third party, or join one like the Green Party, where real change would be possible.
