The Bernie Sanders surge continues, often in improbable places. In Jan-Brewer-red Arizona, his campaign had to move a weekend event in Phoenix to a bigger-than-planned venue after thousands RSVP-ed, an increasingly common snag - see Madison, Denver, Minneapolis, Iowa, Boston and Portland ME - facing the guy nobody was going to vote for. Texas and digital house parties coming up. Sanders: "Democracy is not a spectator sport."
I am delighted to hear this news. I wish you lots of "wind in the back" Bernie; may you enlighten the entire electorate in the United States.
Is it really possible that I am going to get a candidate that I actually want to vote for? After all these decades? There's a first time for everything I guess. Usually I don't vote for the republicans... it's like an official category among the left...lol.
Go Bernie ... for all of us!
"Is it really possible that I am going to get a candidate that I actually want to vote for?"
is a great question, Wereflea! I'm beginning to wonder the same thing. I'm glad to hear that Bernie has also stopped in Boston, as well. Too bad I missed him.
I understand the crowd was around 12,000, here's the youtube replay:
It would seem that people in the USA HOPE for CHANGE. That, in itself, is heartening.
Just got the Honk for a Revolution sticker--yay. :O)
True, more clarity needed on his views re Israel, war, etc. But meanwhile what about the possible good he can do with his "starting a discussion" attitude? Is he going to gain momentum? I think so. Is he as phony as Obama was? Maybe. Maybe not. In short, why not think more creatively on possibilities instead of the automatic dismissal?
I would suppose some USAians have been hoping for change since 1776. It seems that an optimistic part of the USAian character still exists despite all the post-1783 setbacks. Keep it up!
