consultants are sandburs

Marching is fine. But after the giant middle finger salute progressive agenda advocates got from the Clinton family, it is not about Bernie it is about the bigger picture. March out of the convention hall. Certainly a first ever female president is an awsome thought. March where you can find Jill Stein. Learn her agenda, notice something about it.

Paraphrasing Nixon,
"Jill is not a crook."

NY Times, opening paragraphs:

PHILADELPHIA — A large, impassioned crowd of Bernie Sanders supporters — chanting “Hell, no, D.N.C., we won’t vote for Hillary” — marched on Sunday afternoon to the site of the Democratic National Convention, promising a week in which the party’s divisions will be on vivid display in the streets.

More than 1,000 people from as far as Seattle and Florida participated in the first of what are expected to be many Sanders rallies during the convention, which formally begins Monday. The march, led by a banner proclaiming “Help End Establishment Politics, Vote No on Hillary,” was far larger than any of the protest marches last week in Cleveland at the Republican National Convention.

- and more -

“It’s not just young people who are furious. There are people who have been Democrats for decades and are completely angry,” said Kimberly Cooper, 59, of Florida. “Now with the WikiLeaks thing, I am finished supporting her.”

Brandon Gorcheff, of Youngstown, Ohio, who held a handmade sign reading “Move Left” that spoofed the Clinton campaign’s arrow logo, said nothing could get him to support Mrs. Clinton.

[...] Numerous marchers said they would support Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate. They rejected the argument that not voting for Mrs. Clinton would help Mr. Trump.

Pasu Tivorat, of Sacramento, who wore a Guy Fawkes mask, an anarchist’s symbol, said Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton were equally bad choices. “If we nominate Hillary, then she can continue to abuse her base,” he said. “Every progressive idea we come up with they throw under the bus.”

“I’d rather watch the D.N.C. burn,” he added.

The link, again.

It is not about Bernie. Not any more. He capitulated to the establishment. Smoothly. Easily. Speeches can be given, talk being cheap.

Jill Stein is the only progressive still standing. Don't just walk a parade. Walk out. Walk to Jill Stein, Green Party.

Read this.

There remains a progressive option. Tear apart what needs tearing. Leave the Wasserman Schultz world and caviling capitulation behind. If necessary, never look back.


"Jill is not a crook."

UPDATE: Jill Stein has an M.D. Hillary Clinton has transcripts.
A bet: If asked, Stein would show you her M.D.
