From Bernie's campaign.
 
ANOTHER CONFERENCE CALL WITH BERNIE SANDERS TODAY FROM A DELEGATE!!!!!

"This was just sent to me and it was requested I share this widely:
'Kara if you have any trust in me please share this text.......it is directly from Bernie's campaign and is ruled as perfect by Bernie himself through a delegate phonecall 5 minutes ago'
Copied from Laura Weaver.

FAQ time:

Q. Why did Bernie endorse Hillary now?

A. They threatened to completely shut him out of the convention if he didn't.

Q. Couldn't he have said screw them and go and fight at the convention anyway?

A. No. Hillary has more delegates,
Superdelegates, and supporters on the DNC rules committee. They would have voted down every one of our platforms, denied Bernie the opportunity to speak, and basically shut him out of the entire process. All the leverage he has gained up to this point would be gone.

Q. So wait, Bernie DIDN'T quit today?

A. No. He had to say she won the primary, he endorses her and will help the party defeat Trump, yadda yadda but he DID NOT concede. There is a very big and important difference. Had he conceded, all of his delegates would go to Hillary and he would no longer be an option for nominee.

Q. So Bernie can actually still win??

A. YES. And if he wasn't still TRYING to win, he would have conceded. The ONLY option he had to get to the convention with his delegates behind him and have a chance to still win was to do what he did today. He is not a traitor. He didn't sell us out. He did the only possible thing he could have done to keep fighting for the nomination.

Q. So how can Bernie still win if he's losing the delegate count and he just said he will help Hillary win the election?

A. By far the most important thing to the DNC, even more important than making sure Hillary beats Bernie, is making sure the Democratic nominee beats the Republicans in November. They scrutinize every poll, every opinion of the public, every event to judge whether a candidate is strong enough to win in November. There are A LOT of things going on right now that show how weak of a general election candidate Hillary Clinton is:

-66% of the country sees her as untrustworthy

-60% thinks she should have been indicted for the email scandal
-A lot of Bernie supporters won't vote for her

-Congress has requested the Department of Justice investigate her for lying under oath about the email scandal

-There's a possibility more emails will be leaked by wikileaks or hackers further proving her guilt

-Many believe the FBI is secretly investigating the Clinton Foundation

-Her "wins" during the primary havr been tainted with accusations of fraud, suppression, lawsuits, and investigations
And then there's Bernie. An honest candidate people trust and whose approval rating and trustworthy rating crushes Clinton's. This is the argument Bernie will make at the convention. With all his 1,900 delegates inside arguing this case and 100,000 supporters outside arguing this case, we hope the DNC realizes he's the only choice. He CAN win the convention, but he has to get there first. That's why he endorsed her today.

Q. So it's still important that all of his delegates go to the convention and we all still March on it like we planned?

A. It's more important now than it ever was before.

Q. What if the DNC still refuses to nominate him at the convention? Can he still run third party now that he endorsed her?

A. Yes. In fact, running third party has never been an option until AFTER the convention. We need to stick with Bernie and see this through to the convention. He's led us this far. Do not abandon him now."

Folks,
I think we something here which could explain the fight for creative commons we are seeing play out world-wide, and the steady rise of the Pirate Party and it's intellectual property ideals. This by far the most in-depth analysis of the mechanism we are seeing come play as capitalism crumbles, an explaination for the recent global stumbles and failures of world markets, and possibly a model for the future of the planet, if taken to extents.

I'd consider it a must-read for any future pirates and others that fan the flames if humanity in its fight for freedom of spirit from the forces of greed and corruption . Enjoy and please pass on!
Without us noticing, we are entering the postcapitalist era. At the heart of further change to come is information technology, new ways of working and the sharing economy. The old ways will take a long while to disappear, but it’s time to be utopian

No he understands perfectly. Their position is that "money", the system we use to exchange goods & services with each other today, needn't have any intrinsic value whatsoever. That it can be created from nothing and assigned a value in society by the central planners for use by nation states as they see fit. So if they decide a loaf of bread is $100.00 then it's $100.00, unless and until they lose control of the one unpredictable in their formulas. Confidence. If a time comes when the retailer no longer believes he can use that $100.00 to pay his bills, for whatever reason, he then decides what the value of that loaf of bread is.

Right now confidence is holding most everywhere. That can change rapidly, or can hold steady for decades. Anyone who says they can predict that change is likely attempting to sell you something.

"I believe Fascism is still our greatest enemy and its face is everywhere in our so-called “democracies.” It was always about the moneyed interests that had the power. That is what Fascism is and that is the danger we are in now. Sanders talks about money, listen to him. He talks cogently about money and its power to distort. He’s the only one who has raised his voice against the corruption in our politics. Clinton has embraced this corruption." - Oliver Stone

She's president of the TPP, the Iraq war, Honduras and Haiti too?
Man is she good!

I remember the Clintons and the Clinton foundation pumping millions of dollars into haiti after the earthquake!
Is this Bernie's B.Ser's again?

And if some of you halfwits didn't notice the Washington post has partisan and nonpartisan writers!
Take a look at the writer of the story and you'll see an immigrant that wants the rest of her population and friend to come to America!
Just think how many more immigrants are coming to America after Bernie gives them all amnesty and free medical?
And you think your not going to pay! HA!
